|It just got more interesting. Former FBI director Robert Mueller is now spearheading a special investigation into Russia meddling in the election and Donald J. Trump gave the green light to it.|
MICHAEL FLYNN DID ACKNOWLEDGE HE WAS UNDER FEDERAL WATCH AND DONALD J. TRUMP AND THE TRANSITION TEAM IGNORED IT. FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND FORMER DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL SALLY YATES WARNED TRUMP BEFORE HE TOOK OFFICE.
There's talk about impeachment. There is serious concern within Donald J. Trump's camp.
The Deputy Attorney General of the United States appoints a special counsel to investigate.
Former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed to be a special prosecutor to investigate the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed the former director to serve as a special prosecutor to oversee the Russian influence of the 2016 presidential election.
Trump was stunned by the announcement of a special prosecutor. Trump was at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to speak to the graduating class. He complained about how the junk food media and Democrats are trying to destroy him.
"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know --- there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity. I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country."
The Republicans may order Mueller's predecessor James Comey, a former FBI director to testify about the memo. That memo was written by Comey.
Comey claimed that Trump wanted him to drop an investigation between Michael Flynn, the disgraced former National Security Adviser who was considered an issue.
Reports of conflict between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak first broke in January, before Trump got into office.
This month, Trump fired James Comey, hosted an Oval Office meeting with Russian officials without the junk food media allowed and leaked classified information to the public. This Comey memo has become a major scandal in Washington.
