Trump on Michael Flynn's guilty plea: 'There's been absolutely no collusion'

J. Scott Applewhite  AP

This would blow up about a hundred Trump camp denials that there was coordinated high-level campaign contact with Russian Federation, and would suggest that Russia-related actions personally undertaken by Trump in 2016 (as opposed to merely the actions of his top lieutenants and/or family members) are under law enforcement scrutiny.

Donald Trump has changed his story on why he fired Michael Flynn as his national security adviser.

A reporter also asked if the president will stand by Flynn, to which he said, "We'll see what happens", before he thanked the press for their time and walked away.

Mueller has been investigating whether Trump campaign associates coordinated with Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, and Strzok's background in counterintelligence would have been seen as particularly valuable for a secretive Federal Bureau of Investigation probe examining foreign contacts.

LeClerc and Ericsson earn Sauber seats
However, Ericsson's close ties to Sauber owners Longbow Finance appear to have edged it. The announcement was made by Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne on Saturday.

He was forced to resign after he was found to have misled vice president Mike Pence about his discussions with Kislyak.

"What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion", Mr Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for the NY trip.

Former Obama-era Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller said Trump appears to have fessed up to breaking the law in his post - by admitting he knew Flynn fibbed while talking to the feds.

Mr Flynn, a former Defence Intelligence Agency director, held his position as Mr Trump's national security adviser only for 24 days.

San Diego couple arrested for semi-nude photos outside temple in Thailand
They were each fined 5,000 baht ($153) for public nudity, an offense taken seriously in the Buddhist-majority country. USA Today says that the men were arrested after their photo in front of Bangkok's Wat Arun was widely shared.

I mention this only because the revelation that an FBI agent, Peter Strzok, who supervised both the Hillary email investigation and the Trump-Russia probe sent anti-Trump text messages to his alleged mistress, an FBI lawyer, goes straight to the heart of many Americans' sense that the FBI should be fair and impartial, working with an eye on the bigger historical and legal picture, above the petty politics of the day. "There's been absolutely no collusion, so we're very happy". In one of the conversations described in court documents, the men discussed an upcoming United Nations Security Council vote on whether to condemn Israel's building of settlements. Flynn resigned in February, less than a month into Trump's term of office. He is a good guy.

Flynn was also told by a "very senior member" of Trump's transition team to contact Russian Federation and other foreign governments to try to influence them ahead of the vote, the prosecutors said. She has said she expected the White House to take action.

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The discovery of the text messages came at a crucial moment in Mr. Mueller's investigation. If today's tweet is true, he then lied to Comey to get him to drop an investigation, knowing full well Flynn had lied to the FBI.

Judge Rules in Trump's Favor to Have Mulvaney Run CFPB
Cordray promoted English to serve as the agency's deputy director in the hours before his resignation on Friday. But shortly after English was promoted, President Trump appointed Mulvaney as the agency's interim director.

"No, I'm not", Trump said when asked if he was anxious about what Michael Flynn will tell investigators.
