Trump says Russia probe will reveal no collusion with his campaign

Trump's tweets signal his White House - or at least the man in charge - will try to resist Mueller's investigation, meaning the shadow of investigation will now hang over a White House in need of a morale boost.

The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Justice Department and FBI seeking the memo by former FBI Director James Comey describing his February meeting with President Trump in which Trump reportedly asked Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russian Federation.

Asked what he would advise President Trump to do now, McCain said, "Get it all out". On Tuesday the outlet said the staffer revised his comment to: "I guess I was wrong about the timing..."

Trump has rejected the criticism, claiming he has the "absolute right" to share intelligence with Russian Federation so as to encourage Moscow step up their fight against terrorism. Perhaps fittingly, a star of HBO's politically charged satire "Veep" chimed in on Twitter with his own theory. He took a more cautious tone about Democratic party calls for broader investigations of the Trump administration.

According to reports of the memo's contents, the president asked the other people present in the Oval Office at the time, including Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to leave the room.

For the record, the White House has denied the president asked Comey or anyone else "to end any investigation".

Two days later, Flynn's lawyer and transition lawyers discussed the investigation of Flynn.

An obstruction of justice, or an attempt to influence, obstruct or impede an official investigation, is considered a federal offense and possibly an impeachable offense, according to experts and lawmakers.

A top Republican senator is comparing former FBI Director James Comey's memo about his conversation with President Trump to the Watergate scandal that led to President Nixon's resignation.

Ahead of discussions with President Donald Trump, Former FBI Director James Comey prepped with his team on ways to respond to anticipated questions so that he would not come across as confrontational during the ongoing Russian Federation probe, according to an official close to Comey. "I hope you can let this go", the memo reportedly quotes Trump as saying.

Since the impeachment process is a political matter, not a criminal one, Congress can not impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. "I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things". But Ashcroft, and in Comey's telling, Comey himself, stood firmly athwart the pressure and prevailed.

Russian Federation has denied US intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favor.

Trump fired Flynn on February 13, on grounds that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russians. And even if it did, they said, Comey would come out for the better.

"I don't know why people are getting spun up about obstruction here", Luskin said.
