Trump should let special counsel finish his work

16 June 2017

President Donald Trump complained on social media about the wide-ranging investigation of Russian interference in the US election as Robert Mueller appeared to widen his probe to include whether Trump tried to obstruct justice.

In the letter announcing his former FBI director's termination last month, President Donald Trump went out of his way to thank James Comey for telling him "on three separate occasions" that he was not under investigation.

A major test on that front will be whether the FBI is willing to release memos from former FBI Director James Comey of his conversations with Trump, now that they have been provided to Mueller.

The Post report cited anonymous sources who were briefed on requests made by investigators.

Several U.S. congressional committees are also looking into the question of Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion. "That regulation states in effect that department employees should not participate in investigations of a campaign if they served as a campaign adviser".

Last week, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he had informed Trump that there was no investigation of the president's personal conduct, at least while he was leading the FBI. But he said Tuesday he anticipated the conflict of interest and effectively recused himself on his first day on the job, and was never briefed on the Russian Federation investigation. "Nice", the President said.

If Comey had information that Sessions would need to recuse himself, he said, that would have been "double reason" to talk to Boente.

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence committee said in a statement issued Wednesday that they "look forward to future engagements" with Robert Mueller. "I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, and so I thought it really important to document" each of nine private meetings and telephone conversations he had with Mr. Trump, going back to January 6, 2017 at Trump Tower in New York City, two weeks before the inauguration.

The real audience: Jeremy Bash, a lawyer and former Obama national security official, told Brian Williams on MSNBC: "I think Mueller could use a grand jury and overcome this [implied] claim of executive privilege".

Grassley's office said the letter is in response to a recent letter from Feinstein requesting that the committee seek details from senior Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership about Comey's interactions with President Donald Trump before he was sacked. The president has accused Comey of lying about those encounters. The next day, Comey says Trump summoned him to dinner to ask for his loyalty.

He also said Comey should have shared his concerns about the Trump conversation with another Justice Department official, Dana Boente, who was then acting deputy attorney general, and would have been Comey's direct supervisor.
