Trump acknowledges for first time he's under investigation

Trump acknowledges for first time he's under investigation”

Trump demonstrated Friday morning that the Russian Federation probe continues to consume his attention, tweeting a stream of messages decrying the controversy.

Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, vice-chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, said Friday that President Donald Trump should to stop discussing investigations into Russian Federation interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign. He lashed out at a top Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry, reflecting his mounting frustration with the unrelenting controversy that has consumed his early presidency.

Sanders, for example, was asked if Trump still felt "vindicated" by the extraordinary congressional testimony last week by James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director whose firing by Trump has contributed to questions about whether the president obstructed justice. "Nice", the president wrote on Twitter.

It was unclear whether the president was referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Before the day ended, the White House was hit with the latest in a series of headlines relating to the Russian probe: a Post story reporting that Mueller is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-law and adviser.

The second, the source continued, is whether if any potential offences were committed, Trump or others attempted to cover them up or obstruct the investigation into them. If Trump has compromised Rosenstein sufficiently, Rosenstein would have to recuse himself from the case, and his replacement could be ordered by Trump to fire Mueller. The New York Times sued the FBI on Friday, June 16, 2017, seeking a court's help in getting the agency to turn over documents created by fired FBI Director James Comey after his conversations with President Donald Trump.

Aides have counseled the president to stay off Twitter and focus on other aspects of his job. The White House has denied any collusion.

The interest in Kushner's activities by the special counsel's office is no more extensive than the FBI's interest in his multiple roles on both the Trump campaign and transition team, which CNN reported last month.

Sessions, a former senator for Alabama who was chairman of the Trump campaign's national security committee, reportedly invited Burt so that he could discuss issues of national security and foreign policy.

"Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations", Rosenstein said. He is, however, the only one of those people who remains close to Trump. What is clear is that he could order the Justice Department to ax Mueller, which may result in Rosenstein's departure and would certainly intensify the uproar over the investigation.

Comey testified it would be up to Mueller to decide whether Trump's action amounted to obstruction of justice, an act that could be cited in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office.

USA intelligence officials have also told reporters that in December, Kushner attempted to set up a secret backchannel to Russia with the assistance of Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Rosenstein became the Justice Department official overseeing the investigations into the Russian Federation election meddling and Trump after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any matters arising from the 2016 presidential campaigns because he served as a prominent Trump campaign adviser. The intelligence committee is the lead congressional panel on the Russian Federation hacking scandal, including highly publicized hearings with fired FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. ABC said Rosenstein told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside.

Trump's tweet Friday reflected the first official confirmation that he is being investigated by the special counsel for the reasons he fired Comey last month.
