President Trump says special counsel in Russian Federation investigation 'divides the country'

20 May 2017

The move comes after reports that the President asked former FBI director James Comey to drop the ongoing investigation of Michael Flynn, a national-security adviser. "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!". She scoffed at Trump's claim that he's been treated "more unfairly" than any politician in history, saying Thursday, "Get some thick skin, OK?"

The same pattern was in evidence when he fired FBI Director James Comey last week then used a television interview to suggest he acted out of frustration with the FBI's Russian Federation probe - even though his team spent several days saying the ousting of the bureau's director had nothing to do with that issue.

House and Senate investigators probing Russia's ties to the campaign of President Donald Trump promised Thursday they would continue on the same track amid questions of whether the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller would curtail their work. The show's hosts said that during those investigations, there were no calls for impeachment or special counsels.

"And there is no collusion between, certainly myself and my campaign". We urge him to nominate someone with a profile similar to Mueller's, an experienced hand in law enforcement who comes from outside the world of politics and is respected by both parties.Once that's done, it might be possible to focus on some other issues for a while.We applaud Rosenstein for making a decision that could not have been easy, considering that he was appointed by Trump.

The next day Rosenstein issued the memo to Trump, and Comey was swiftly dismissed.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, said, "It's now considered a criminal investigation and Congress's ability to conduct investigations of all things Russian Federation has been severely limited - probably in an appropriate way".

"I think it divides the country", Trump said of the special counsel.

Zeidenberg was the assistant special counsel in the 2003 investigation into the leaking of the identity of Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame, which ultimately lead to Vice President Dick Cheney's advisor Scooter Libby being convicted of obstruction of justice, among other counts. Another Republican congressman, Carlos Curbelo, said if any wrongdoing was uncovered, "Those people should be held accountable".

It was a 22-year-old computer wizard who put a stop to the "WannaCry" ransomware virus that caused chaos around the globe. He was analyzing a sample of the malicious malware's code when he noticed it was linked to an unregistered web.

The White House, however, said initially that it was Rosenstein's memo on May 9 that led to Mr. Trump's decision to fire Comey last week. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) of Salem - home to arguably the greatest actual witch hunt in American history. "I am on a fact-finding mission", he said on CNN. "And so, you've got the Intelligence Committee looking at it, and you will have the Mueller investigation going on, and it's the Mueller investigation that would bring forward solid evidence on which you could base a criminal case and indict someone".

President Trump has insisted he is not the one under investigation, but that could easily change.

"This is a truth hunt", said Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill said Rosenstein told senators that he knew Comey would be fired before he wrote his letter accusing him of missteps as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, including his handling of an election-year probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
