Trump Floats Possibility Of Firing Robert Mueller, Criticizes Jeff Sessions

According to reports on the raid, Mueller found information on Cohen's dealings with Stormy Daniels over the course of the Russian Federation investigation, which the special counsel gave to NY federal prosecutors and the Trump-appointed USA district attorney.

Exactly so. And it's an affront to American law and American values, at least what were American values not so long ago, and which we can pray still have some force.

"Mueller's witch hunt investigation is now a runaway train that is clearly careening off the tracks", Hannity said during his opening monologue. Hours later, flanked by the nation's top military brass, Trump unleashed his sharpest invective against the sweeping investigation to date, calling the search "a disgrace".

Trump called it "an attack on our country and what we all stand for".

The president didn't bat away the idea of firing Mueller, saying people have advised him to take that action: "Why don't I just fire Mueller?"

"I think it's very likely that they will be looking at the source of that money paid to Stormy Daniels, and any other women", said Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor in NY.

Back in the real world that exists outside of MSNBC, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said on Fox News Channel that the heavy-handed raid made it a "dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations". They continue to just go forward ... and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now. That was one of the intended subjects of his Monday evening meeting with the defense secretary, the joint chiefs of staff and US combat commanders. "I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man", Trump began, referring to agents who had obtained search warrants from a federal judge.

Trump referred to the investigators, or perhaps the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as the "most biased group of people", and said they have "the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen".

Pinchuk is more widely known for his ties to Hillary Clinton and her namesake foundation, which he has donated more than $13 million to since 2006.The conference that he paid Trump to record a speech for focused on developing better ties between Ukraine, the USA and the European Union.

Mueller, a lifelong Republican, and his team of attorneys have been investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and associated misdeeds in the president's orbit since May 2017.

The FBI did not disclose why they were targeting Cohen and what they were looking for, but recent reports suggest it has something to do with either the Stormy Daniels scandal or the special counsel's Russian collusion investigation. Pinchuk also attended the former president's 65th birthday party in Los Angeles.

Trump's exchange on firing Mueller came afterward.

South Carolina Republican Sen.

Cohen, a longtime lawyer for the Trump Organization, paid $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, an adult film actress known as Stormy Daniels.

Earlier than a White Home assembly with prime army advisers, Trump took a number of minutes to blast the raid and the Mueller probe. The special counsel is also examining whether administration officials used their influence within the White House to benefit their personal finances. Rosenstein then would determine whether to allow Mueller to proceed or to assign the matter to another US attorney or another part of the Justice Department.
