Senior prosecutor Weissmann to leave US special counsel's team soon

Senior prosecutor Weissmann to leave US special counsel's team soon”

Ultimately, whether or not the report produced by the special counsel Robert Mueller's team is made public will be at the discretion of Attorney General William Barr.

In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote, the House of Representatives called Thursday for special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to be made public when it is completed.

In addition, Barr will be able to withhold whatever information he deems should not be made visible, even if he does release a partial version of the report to Congress or the public.

Mueller has been investigating since May 2017 whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow and whether the president has unlawfully tried to obstruct the probe.

Lakers Shutting Down Lonzo Ball For The Season
Ball injured his ankle at Houston , and the initial timetable for his recovery given by the team was four to six weeks. CJ McCollum scored 23 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter to lead Portland past host Los Angeles.

The final vote tally was 420 members voting in favor, no members voting against and four Republican members (Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona) voting "present".

The resolution is unlikely to be passed in the Senate, where Democratic Leader Charles Schumer tried to bring it up hours after House passage.

"After taking almost two years, costing tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, and providing limited public information about its scope, I am especially concerned about what would happen if the report was not made available to Congress", Scalise said in a statement.

Another high-profile investigator, FBI special agent in charge David Archey, left the Mueller team and started a new job March 4 leading the bureau's office in Richmond, Va. I take specific exception to the elements of the resolution noting praise for Mueller, without also noting the criticism of his very biased staffing decisions. He has promised members of Congress to send his own "report" on Mueller's investigation to lawmakers, but it's unclear what that will contain.

USA trade deficit soars to record high
No matter how many times Merkel points to German plants in the US producing cars and employing Americans, Trump doesn't get it. December's trade imbalance worsened because United States imports rose 2.1%, while exports to other countries fell 1.9%.

Though they voted for the resolution, many Republicans expressed skepticism about the wisdom and likely success of Democrats' quest.

If Barr both denies lawmakers' request to publicize the report and resists any subsequent subpoenas, that could set up a drawn-out court fight between Congress and the executive branch over the document's disclosure. He defended Barr, saying he "understands the questions, the turmoil this has caused".

At his Senate confirmation hearing in February, Barr was asked about sharing Mueller's report upon its completion.

Schumer added that he was "deeply disappointed" in Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. It makes clear classified or other information not appropriate for public release would not be expected to be published.

Apparently, last Tuesday, she was called in at the end of her shift, was sacked on the spot, and was escorted out of the hospital. While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.

"Those are also going to be things that we are going to have to litigate", Collins said.
