In Rambling Response, Trump Says It's 'Unlikely' He'd Sit For Mueller Interview

In Rambling Response, Trump Says It's 'Unlikely' He'd Sit For Mueller Interview

Republicans who spent the early months of 2017 working with Democrats on investigations into Russian interference in USA elections have pivoted as the new year begins and midterm elections loom, leaving the conclusions of those congressional probes in doubt.

A new poll reveals 48 percent of American voters believe it's "very or somewhat likely" President Donald Trump will be cleared in the investigation into alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Asked whether he would be willing to meet special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump deflected the question by repeatedly denying that investigators had found any evidence of collusion between his campaign team and Russian Federation. Russian Federation & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. "For them, the criminal referral of [Christopher] Steele-who approached the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2016 over concerns Trump could be blackmailed or compromised, Simpson told the committee-was 'a breaking point, ' according to one congressional aide". Grassley said he was "confounded" by the move.

The partisan fighting is a breakdown from last March, when Nunes and Schiff together established parameters for the investigation and each said it would be bipartisan.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Simpson requested that the transcript of his testimony be released to the public and said that the American people deserved the chance to see his words and judge for themselves.

Other bipartisan efforts have stalled, as well. Cries of law-enforcement corruption and conspiracy are common in criminal cases in which the defendants know that they're in danger and want to distract attention from the case itself.

"There could be all kinds of limitations they can put on, and so I suspect that is what they'll do", Driscoll said. Richard Burr. Neither senator would comment on the meeting's objective. Mark Warner, D-Va., have worked closely together as panel staff has quietly interviewed more than 100 witnesses.

Trump was recently questioned about whether he asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself on matters related to Russian Federation earlier this year.

"Without getting complete phone records. we will not get a full picture of what conversations may have taken place between the president and his son contemporaneous with the Trump Tower meeting", Schiff said.

The FBI director's ouster ignited an immediate firestorm in Washington, with both Democrats and Republicans raising questions about whether the president had fired Comey to stymie an investigation into his and his associates' potential wrongdoings. "And we are not going to let that happen", he said.

Before and since the tweet, Trump and his lawyers have said the President is not under investigation.

If Mueller is allowed to continue his quiet, methodical, investigation, where might his next lightning bolt strike?

A conservative website had earlier sought information about Trump via Fusion GPS but stopped its investigation of the then-Republican candidate once it became apparent that he would be his party's nominee.
