Mueller probing Trump's Sessions request

Posted June 01, 2018

Gowdy told MacCallum, "I am even more convinced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got".

"There are lots of really good lawyers in this country", he added.

Gowdy, did, however, express support for Trump's "frustration" with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself in May 2017 from the Russian Federation probe based on possible conflict of interest.

The South Carolina Republican said the president is frustrated with Sessions because the attorney general did not tell him he would recuse himself from the Justice Department's election meddling probe.

It will be James' 8th consecutive trip to the Finals , and the 4th consecutive Finals matchup between the Cavs and the Warriors . That is a tall order considering the defending champions have scored at least 100 points in 13 of their 17 playoff games.

Sessions recused himself in March 2017 from any investigation related to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

"I don't think the president should do it and I've told him so", said Giuliani.

On Sunday Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said the investigation could ultimately result in an impeachment effort in Congress over alleged obstruction by the president.

Trump wanted Sessions to take control of the Russian Federation matter, the Times reported, in order to protect him - he evidently felt he could exercise more control over Sessions than over Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who eventually appointed special counsel Robert Mueller.

US decision to disinvite China from RIMPAC very unconstructive: Chinese Councilor Wang
Woody Island is the largest of the Paracel Islands in South China Sea, and is also claimed by Taiwan and by Vietnam. Nonetheless, it appears that China is entrenched to the point that it can not be forced out of the South China Sea.

Giuliani told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Mr. Trump has asked him multiple times, before and after the former NY mayor joined the president's legal team last month, about whether Sessions should have been fired. He added that Gowdy's statements were not only "completely out of line", but also "factually incorrect". "Asking Sessions to "unrecuse" himself despite his conflict of interest, in palpable violation of the Department of Justice recusal rules, can only have one goal: the corrupt obstruction of justice", says constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe. The congressman appeared on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday where he sympathized with Trump's frustration with the attorney general. "That's how I read that", Gowdy said.

Lawmakers demanded the briefing following reports that a government informant approached Trump campaign officials.

"They don't like him, they don't think he should be in the office, and they think they know better than you and me - we that voted for him", Nunberg insisted. But Wednesday's tweets "show that the subject is still very much on his mind, rekindling fears that he might choose to fire Sessions and derail Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe".
