White House: Trump believes Mueller's probe has 'gone too far'

11 Avril 2018

Monday's raid was first reported by The New York Times.

President Donald Trump's campaign, accessed information from as many as 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge. We see his twin personalities - his twin presidencies - and recognize again the cost to the country of his erratic behavior.

The White House has denied there was a sexual relationship. The sources emphasize that no final decision on a potential interview by the president with the special counsel's team has been made, as negotiations continue.

Under Justice Department regulations, Trump cannot directly fire Mueller, but could order Rosenstein or his successor to remove the special counsel.

"He has the power to do so", Sarah Sanders said Tuesday. "I don't have any further announcements".

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's office, home, and hotel room early Monday morning and seized records, electronic devices, and attorney-client communications between Trump and Cohen.

"This is now a man that has to be brought under control, it would seem to me", Dobbs added.

Political allies are urging against the ultimate pre-emptive move: firing Mueller.

There's also a good possibility that the raid had little to do directly with the president.

"Have you or anyone at Facebook been interviewed by the special counsel's office?" Sen. "The president ought to have confidence in Mueller, and to answer your question, it would be suicide for the president to talk about firing Mueller".

Federal agents who raided the office of President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, were looking for information about payments to a former Playboy playmate and a porn actress who claim to have had affairs with Trump, two people familiar with the investigation said Tuesday. "If he did, it wouldn't end the investigation".

Paul lamented it is "hard politically" to fire Mueller and that most likely wouldn't happen.

Monday's events renewed concerns that Trump could try to have Mueller removed, which critics have said would amount to interference in the investigation.

News of the December incident comes as it has been revealed that Trump believes he has the legal authority to fire Mueller. Trump called the probe a "witch hunt", suggesting it was a distraction from serious issues, like the consideration of a military response to Syria's apparent use of a chemical weapon on civilians over the weekend - which was a subject of his Monday evening meeting with the defense secretary, the joint chiefs of staff and US combatant commanders. He says: "I think he will be allowed to finish the job".

A half-dozen conditions need to be met for such searches to happen.

"The decision by the U.S. attorney's office in NY to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary".

Trump lashed out against the raid on Cohen and the Mueller probe on Monday and Tuesday, telling reporters it was "disgraceful" and tweeting it was a "witch hunt".

Such a search is never done lightly, Rocah said.

Grassley's comments were echoed by Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.), who said that he supports Congress taking action to protect the Mueller investigation. AMI has said she was paid to become a fitness columnist. "I believe that there may be, but I know we are working with them".
