Trump: 'I feel very badly for General Flynn'

Report Mueller removed ‘top FBI’ agent from Trump Russia case after anti Trump texts discovered

Report Mueller removed ‘top FBI’ agent from Trump Russia case after anti Trump texts discovered

Special Counsel Robert Mueller removed an FBI Russian counterintelligence expert from his team after an internal probe found he exchanged texts with a colleague that could be interpreted as showing political bias against President Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton.

Yates added, however, that she told McGahn it was not her role to advise the White House what to do, whether or not to fire Flynn.

Dowd declares that obstruction isn't a crime.

That would seem to lend weight to the allegation that Trump committed obstruction of justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey in May.

Trump did not suggest he was considering that approach.

"Even if we assume that Trump knew that Flynn lied to the FBI, Trump had the right to weigh in on the investigation", he said.

Meanwhile, the president painted Flynn as someone who has "led a very strong life" now ruined by his false statements to the FBI. "There was absolutely no collusion".

But what amounts to obstruction occurs when a "corrupt" intent is involved, Painter said.

For prosecutors, the moment came on Saturday.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi features a sweet homage to Gary
And, in that alien's hand, the cosmic canine now known as Space Gary! Johnson immediately confirmed the appearance of SpaceGary . The Twitter user noticed Gary's double in an image from the film that was released in Empire magazine.

Comey subsequently testified during a congressional hearing that he interpreted those words to mean that the president was pressuring him to, well, let Flynn go.

It's no secret Flynn misstated details of these contacts - that much we knew dating back to February - but why wouldn't he have been more careful?

I call this a "Trump tweet", rather than saying, "President Trump tweeted", because the president evidently did not write the tweet himself. That alone is evidence that the founding generation did not believe that heads of state were immune from obstruction charges. "That is an ignorant and arrogant assertion", Dowd told Axios. If this was the work of Dowd, he is the legal version of Ambrose Burnside, the Union general described by President Lincoln as the only person capable of "such a coup as to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory".

The writer was the assistant chief counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee. The former president resigned in 1974, before impeachment proceedings could begin. Just as he would have been wise to avoid those spans, the Trump White House would be wise to avoid those tweets, long the forum for its repeated and greatest self-inflicted wounds.

"Dowd is serving baloney for breakfast". I'd be careful if I were you, Mr. President.

There is plenty left out about these conversations.

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. Perhaps his client will lose confidence in him. Four Trump associates have been charged, but no count relates directly to the probe's original purpose. He also conducted interviews with former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the Russia investigation and with Clinton and several of her top aides in the email inquiry. The FBI's reputation is not in "tatters". The official view of the executive branch is that it can't be done. "For obstruction of justice by the president, you need clearly illegal acts", said Dershowitz. Was it because he just messed up and didn't fully process the question, or did he actually have something to hide?

"It was a bone-headed tweet for a lawyer to send ... so it's a two-pronged attack", he said.

The Trump lawyer's defence recalled Nixon's infamous rationale during the 1977 Frost-Nixon interviews, revealing how he perceived presidential powers.
