He has brought to the White House the values of a failed Atlantic City casino owner turned reality-TV star.

Russia's cyberattack on the USA electoral system before Donald Trump's election was far more widespread than has been publicly revealed, including incursions into voter databases and software systems in nearly twice as many states as previously reported.

Trump creates his own version of normal. In one memo, Comey said Trump tried to direct him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Mark Warner, who is the committee's top Democrat. Trump decided he had to fire Flynn on February 13, saying even as he did so that Flynn had done nothing wrong and shouldn't be punished.

"I don't know who you're talking to because I've had great with the president through many years", Ruddy said. Comey was sacked May 9. Truly, we don't know. She said the counsel was now pointless, as it's become clear Trump wasn't an initial target of the Russian Federation investigation anyway.

Trump's behavior in office has been disruptive, to put it mildly. He told the panel that he and others, including Trump, concluded months before Comey's termination that it was time for a "fresh start" at the bureau, adding concerns about Comey's performance were never discussed with the then-FBI chief.

This apparent effort to lay the groundwork for Mueller's firing raises a key question: Could the president do it? If so, this crippling scandal could veer into a much more unsafe phase of presidential lawlessness.

Any incriminating charges against Trump would have to face the Justice department, who are strongly against indicting a sitting President.

As Rachel noted on the show last night, one of Trump's confidants said publicly that the move is a possibility. The FBI's "Prepublication Review Guide" does raise some questions about Comey's actions, but not Mueller's.

If DOJ officials refused and/or resigned, the president could simply work his way down the department's hierarchy until he found someone willing to follow his orders. "I personally think it would be a very significant mistake".

This gets to the heart of the matter. His investigators are set to speak with senior intelligence officials.

Trump has made no decision to act against Mueller and insists that he knows the risks of doing so "but people close to the president say Trump is so volatile they can not be sure that he will not change his mind if he finds out anything to lead him to believe the investigation has been compromised", The New York Times said.
