Angry Trump decries witch hunt against him

19 June 2017

Sekulow also cited the recent congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey, who said he told Trump on several occasions that he was not being personally investigated. The lawyer told CNN the Twitter comment was made in the confines of a 140-character post and suggested that the Post report should be discounted because of its use of anonymous sources. "I don't think it has crystallized to that point".

Comey told lawmakers earlier this month that Trump in recent months had asked for his personal loyalty, urged him to drop the investigation of the contacts the president's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had with Russia's ambassador to Washington, and to "lift the cloud" of the Russian Federation investigation, none of which he acceded to.

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed.

Multiple committees in the Senate and House of Representatives are investigating various aspects of Russian election meddling.

On Meet the Press and CNN's State of the Union, Sekulow was asked about Donald Trump's June 16 tweet in which he confirmed he was under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

If that death toll is confirmed, it would make the Grenfell Tower blaze the deadliest in London since World War Two . Attention has focused on materials used during the renovation process completed previous year .

"The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired", Feinstein said.

When NBC's Chuck Todd pointed out that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein specifically did not recommend Comey's firing, Sekulow smoothly and brazenly went ahead to conflate Rosenstein's words with those of Sessions, in order to bolster his argument. Those officials also claim that investigators are looking for evidence of any financial crimes among Trump's associates.

"Well, again, ultimately, at the end of the day, he has a right to his opinion on these issues", said Rubio, one of Trump's opponents in the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. Based in part on the people he is hiring to assist in the probe, some wonder whether he may lean toward a less-than-objective investigation, at the president's expense.

Trump left Saturday with his wife and young son to spend the weekend at Camp David for the first time, and is scheduled to return to Washington late Sunday. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote on Twitter.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said.

The senator noted that it was a very complex matter, which involved thousands of pages of intelligence documents, many witnesses, hence a lot of information needed to be processed.

"Rosenstein needs to stay on to protect the integrity of the investigation", said Robert Ray, the former independent counsel for the Whitewater case.

Jay Sekulow, one of the personal lawyers Trump has hired, made the rounds of Sunday talk shows insisting that the president wasn't being investigated, despite a tweet to the contrary from Trump last week.

He has used the term repeatedly-notably on Thursday, when he said the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history" is being led by "very bad and conflicted people".

"As he helped introduce Trump here Friday on a podium bearing the presidential seal, Rubio spoke in a volume and cadence reminiscent of the speeches he delivered as a candidate for president", the Post reported. Though some in the White House have preached caution, fearing a repeat of the firestorm over Comey's firing, many in Trump's orbit — including his son Donald Trump Jr. and adviser Newt Gingrich — have deemed Mueller biased and worthy of dismissal.
