Mueller meets with House leaders amid Trump-Russia probe

Billy Vunipola

"He wants to raise taxes and kill health care", Trump tweeted in a reference to Democrat Jon Ossoff. President Nixon fired Archibald Cox, a special prosecutor investigating Watergate, which led to Nixon's resignation. To make it more hard, Trump's statements threaten to undercut their work.

"I don't care who Trump hires".

It's too early to say for sure what legal strategy his lawyers will eventually settle on. He and his team are now assessing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's recent testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, reviewing Comey's memos documenting his encounters with Trump, and preparing to interview certain administration officials - such as Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers - regarding press accounts of comments the president allegedly made to them about the Russian Federation probe.

"We had a productive meeting with Special Counsel Mueller this afternoon to deconflict our concurrent investigations, and look forward to continuing our dialogue with him as both investigations progress", Conaway and Schiff said in a statement. Another key will be Mueller's assessment of Comey allegation that Trump tried to get him to stop the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The Washington Post has reported that in that meeting, Trump - having already made a decision to fire Comey - demanded that Rosenstein memo as a rationale. "I think you're reading more into the tweet than what's there".

The Wisconsin Department of Justice has 90 days from the court's ruling to decide whether to re-try the case. Defence attorneys say discovery of the vial supports their claim that blood was planted to frame Avery .

Whether Trump himself is under investigation at this stage also is still unclear.

On Friday, Trump tweeted that he is "being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" Prosecutors early on also are generally focused on understanding how a particular circumstance unfolded, rather than in pursuing a particular target. And in recent days, Kushner has met with at least one high-profile trial attorney, according to people familiar with the situation.

The suggestion last week that Trump may fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller is another example.

President Donald Trump is beginning his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

So far, Trump effect has led only to GOP victories
He listed the possibility of a $2 trillion infrastructure plan that create jobs or a dramatic earned income tax credit expansion. That's what it will take to win districts like this one in 2018 and take back the House. "The answer is yes", Lujan wrote .

"He probably can't say nothing, but I think he should say as little as possible - and it should be so boring that it makes for bad copy", he said.

Trump's twitter should be the next to lawyer up.

Kasowitz heads the group despite his lack of deep experience in Washington or in criminal defense. Thus, Sekulow's spin itself serves as a reminder that Trump's conduct leading up to the firing of Comey will likely be examined. White House officials have denied that Donald Trump has any plans to fire Robert Mueller.
