White House names special counsel over Russian Federation probe response

Donald Trump also got himself disapproved by 58% people where he competes with the former President Bill Clinton, who was disapproved by 51%. Those workers, she said, will now be "championed" by Trump. June's "Infrastructure Week" was completely overshadowed by fired FBI Director's Congressional testimony and Trump's own ill-timed outbursts on Twitter and in interviews which undermined his message.

The intelligence agencies said earlier this year that Russian Federation sought to help Trump win the election by hacking private emails from Democratic Party officials and spreading false information. A White House official, who requested anonymity to discuss the "Made in America" week events before they occurred, said Sunday there is no specific timeline for Ross to present the findings of his investigation.

According to a White House official who spoke with CNN, Cobb has been appointed to keep an eye on and offer strategic advice on media-based and legal issues concerning the Russian Federation investigation, an ongoing federal query into potential interference in the 2016 presidential election as well as possible collusion with Donald Trump's campaign.

Meanwhile, Trump's first few months in office were most notably defined by protests like the Women's March, his controversial travel ban and healthcare plans, and a missile strike on Syria following a chemical weapons attack that left 86 civilians dead, per ABC News.

The payment was made to Futerfas' firm days before the story about the meeting broke, which caused a scramble inside the White House and Trump Tower to contain it.

Emails sent to Kasowitz and his spokesman were not immediately returned.

In terms of negotiating on the United States' behalf, 66% are less trusting of Trump working with world leaders, and the same percentage was less trusting of Trump dealing with Russia President Vladimir Putin.

But many of Washington's best criminal defense lawyers have appeared reluctant to work for a president known to ignore legal counsel and a family that has repeatedly failed to fully disclose contacts with people linked to Russian Federation.

But the president has repeatedly assured Priebus that the chatter he's about to be replaced is false, said the person familiar with Trump's thinking.

Trump has complained that special counsel Robert Mueller III's investigation is a "witch hunt" that is unfairly stalling his agenda.

Cobb represented figures involved in government investigations during the Clinton administration, according to Reuters, which reported July 3 that Trump had met with him.

"Of course I am still part of Jared Kushner's legal team", Gorelick said in a statement. As a result, Jamie Gorelick will be stepping back from those matters but will continue to work on issues regarding ethics compliance, according to the Times.
