The lawyer, Neal Katyal, who is now an MSNBC legal analyst, expressed his opinion after reading Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the findings of Robert Mueller’s investigation.
60 Minutes host Scott Pelley appeared on “CBS This Morning,” today and said that McCabe told him in his 60 Minutes interview (to be aired Sunday) that the DOJ had meetings in May of 2017 to discuss whether Donald Trump’s cabinet could be rallied to oust him from power.
In the book, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe writes that Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, did not want to write the memo and strongly resisted doing so.
In a new report by a respected investigative journalist, the New York Review of Books is claiming that special counsel Robert Mueller has in his possession pieces of highly incriminating documentary evidence that will clearly implicate President Donald Trump in criminal obstruction of justice.
Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.
Comey posted a tweet urging Americans to turn away from Republican candidates this November.
President Donald Trump has often said over the past year that he fired former FBI Director James Comey because of the Russia investigation, but in a tweet today he now claims that is not true.
Seemingly out of the blue Trump tweeted:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is focused on Trump's potential obstruction of justice as former Press Secretary Sean Spicer was grilled about the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
House Democrats came out their briefing from Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein frustrated and convinced that they couldn't trust anything that the Trump administration says. One Democratic congressman referred to the briefing as "useless."
In a letter to Trump's White House counsel, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested that all tapes and correspondence between Trump and former FBI Director James Comey be turned over to congressional investigators.
Trump's comments about and handling of James Comey's firing has left the former director simmering as the FBI itself has resolved to get to the bottom of the Russia scandal.
A new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll shows that by nearly a 2 to 1 margin Americans believe that Trump fired Comey over Russia and not for any other reason.
