The problem with this thinking is that it would mean Pence had to avoid not just controversy, but also criminal behavior. But it seems it hasn’t worked out that way.
According to the Washington Post, President Donald Trump is now “a major subject of interest” in the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.
As a “subject of the investigation,” Trump now has his own legal code name: “Individual 1.”
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, has reached a new plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Cohen is expected to plead guilty to lying to congressional committees.
Sometimes it’s easy to lose track of just how many different criminal investigations there are looking at Donald Trump, the Trump Organization, and the Trump family.
We know there’s the Mueller probe, and the Southern District of New York investigation that got Michael Cohen to plead guilty to numerous felonies. There is also the New York Attorney General’s office, and the New York State Revenue Department looking into Trump, his business, his foundation, and his children for various alleged crimes.
Schiff is the current ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee which means that in January he will replace Devin Nunes as chairman of the powerful committee. On Sunday Schiff complained that the new acting attorney general at the Justice Department is not being transparent, and he has a big problem with that.
Last week Robert Mueller won a big court victory. The court decision was widely reported, but its significance may not have been fully seen at the time. Because of this court victory it is likely now that Mueller will be able to prove that criminal collusion took place between Russia and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
President Donald Trump on Thursday tore into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, saying that investigators have “gone absolutely nuts” and that they are “a disgrace” to the country.
CBS News is reporting this morning that special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to soon issue new indictments in the ongoing probe of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. They said that the new indictments may be issued as early as today.
The possibility of President Donald Trump thwarting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has hung over the probe since the beginning. Countless articles have been written about Trump’s ability (or lack of ability) to fire Mueller, or his boss Rod Rosenstein, or HIS boss Jeff Sessions.
CNN has reported that New York state prosecutors have asked to meet with Michael Cohen’s attorney. This shows that the State of New York is not waiting for Bob Mueller or other federal law enforcement authorities to pursue criminal investigations against Donald Trump or his children.
The Daily Caller is a bizarre right-wing website that supports Donald Trump along with many conspiracy theories. Therefore it is only fitting that when the president allowed employees from the Daily Caller into the Oval Office and granted them an exclusive interview, the results would also be bizarre.
Many theories have been tossed around, but nobody knows for sure why there is no cooperation agreement between Manafort and federal prosecutors. It may be that he doesn’t have enough to offer, so Mueller is not interested in making a deal with him. It may be that he does have enough to offer, and wants to make a deal, but he is not happy with the deal the prosecutors are offering to him. Or it may be that he has all the information that Mueller wants concerning ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, but he is unwilling to give it up.
President Trump was on Twitter early Sunday attacking one of his favorite targets, the “failing” New York Times. He called Richard Nixon’s White House Counsel John Dean “a rat” and said “I have nothing to hide.” He also called the Mueller probe “McCarthyism at its WORST” and said the special counsel was investigating the wrong targets.
Former CIA Director John Brennan hit back at President Donald Trump in a scathing New York Times opinion piece after the president revoked his security clearance on Wednesday.
“In an op-ed, former CIA Director Brennan says President Trump revoked his security clearance to “scare into silence” critics”
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro introduced a totally crazy new theory about special prosecutor Bob Mueller during her Saturday night show. She said that the highly respected special counsel and former FBI Director is actually a criminal who will soon need his own attorney. She accused the straight-laced Mueller of taking money from a Russian billionaire, apparently in exchange for his investigation of President Donald Trump.
The comments made by California Rep. Devin Nunes provide proof that the Republican Party is corrupt and Nunes is a traitor to his country. And they also may prove something else that is even more shocking and important: that Donald Trump is doomed and is going down because of the Mueller investigation.
