Trump says no one has any proof on Russia

Trump says no one has any proof on Russia

Trump lashed out on Twitter early Friday at a top Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry, reflecting his mounting frustration.

Sekulow also appeared on "Face the Nation" where he continued to use the argument that Trump is not under investigation because they hadn't received any notice that he was.

After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Trump said that Comey had told him three times that he was not under investigation.

But Trump is likely to be disappointed if he is ultimately seeking to stop the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director, according to Cramer and members of Congress. Comey testified that Trump directed him in February to drop an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn relating to the Russian Federation matter. Trump said the move was meant to restore "public trust and confidence" in the bureau. That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story, ' he said on State of the Union. His lawyers say he will cooperate with investigators.

Mr Cohen has worked for Mr Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign. He has already been subpoenaed by the House intelligence committee.

Ryan is a former general counsel for the Senate's committee on governmental affairs. Comey said he believes Trump ultimately fired him "because of the Russian Federation investigation".

She said Trump has "embarked on an effort to undermine anyone with the ability to bring any misdeeds to light" and the Senate shouldn't let that happen. The American leader also slammed Comey for disclosing his memos to the press.

Jay Sekulow, a lawyer who is part of a team hired by Trump to deal with allegations of collusion by his campaign with Moscow, appeared to contradict Trump's statement on Twitter on Friday that he was being investigated for firing his Federal Bureau of Investigation director last month. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

Flynn was sacked after it was learned that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with Ambassador Kislyak.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, in May while facing questions about his role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

No 'proof' on 'collusion' with Russians, says Trump
The order also demands that records be kept on any foreign travel by members of Trump's transition team and presidential campaign. Mueller must denounce the leak and defend the independence of his investigation. "Sad!" Trump said in his first tweet of the day.

Trump had tweeted: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! So yeah, he's in a hard position and I personally think it would be wise for him to go back to NY". Comey later revealed that he orchestrated a disclosure of details about conversations with Trump to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.

On Thursday, Trump went on Twitter and called the investigation "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" Trump had viewed Sessions' recusal as unnecessary, even though Justice Department regulations made it nearly impossible to avoid.

The Labor Department this month that the jobless rate fell to 4.3 percent the lowest level since 2001, from 4.4 percent.

President Donald Trump is touting his social media following, saying he can deliver his message directly to voters instead of going through the "fake news media".

Nevertheless, a defiant Trump did take to Twitter on Thursday to make his feelings known. He also has millions of followers on his official Facebook pages. And it's up to him to decide how much to tell Rosenstein about the substance of the investigation itself.

Cullen, for what it's worth, is the godfather of one of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's daughters. Trump later contradicted his own staff, saying on May 11 he had the Russian Federation issue in mind when he fired Comey.

In a series of statements on Twitter on Thursday, Mr Trump repeated his claim that Mr Mueller's investigation is a "WITCH HUNT" based on the "phoney" premise of possible collusion between Russian Federation and a cadre of Trump campaign associates.
