Trump tweet on Muller probe opinion not order: White House

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is among the administration officials set to visit an Arkansas school that trains

The tweet was one in a series of messages in a thread started by the president in which he quoted lawyer and legal commentator Alan Dershowitz, a vocal critic of Mueller's investigation. Trump tweeted at Sessions hours after being updated by his legal team.

Taking to Twitter to complain about the federal Russian Federation investigation, which focuses on the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr Trump said Mr Sessions "should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further".

Taking to Twitter to complain about the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, Trump said Sessions "should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further".

For one, he argued, it's "an expression of an opinion" like the White House said. Trump has been more frustrated since headlines about his former attorney Michael Cohen emerged last week.

Bolton said Thursday that Trump is "leading unprecedented action to punish Russia" for its efforts to disrupt USA elections.

So it's obvious that not only is Trump's new claim false, but Trump knows it's false even when he says it.

Of course, only the lie itself is new - not the outright and brazen deception from the commander-in-chief, which we've come to expect from Trump. The Justice Department declined to comment Wednesday. From left, also listening, were White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, national security adviser John Bolton, Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and National Security Agency Director Gen. Paul Nakasone.

She added, "The President is not obstructing".

Emin is mentioned multiple times in an email exchange between Goldstone and Trump Jr. during the spring 2016 ahead of the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting that took place on June 9, 2016 with Trump Jr., a Russian lawyer and others. Since Sessions announced his recusal in March 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has been tasked with overseeing Mueller's investigation.

The suspects could face additional federal charges because of permits required to possess exotic animals, police said. Officers discovered other marine animals in the man's home as well, San Antonio Police Lt.

This was Trump's most direct demand yet that Sessions, who infuriated the president by recusing himself from the investigation, intervene to end the probe.

So, is Trump off the hook in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation?

"I think our decisions will get made in the next week to 10 days", the former New York City mayor said.

But early on Wednesday morning, Trump committed "an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight", according to California Representative Adam Schiff, 58, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and a former federal prosecutor who in 1990, as The Los Angeles Times reported, successfully prosecuted Richard Miller, the first FBI agent ever charged with espionage for passing secret information to Russian Federation, then part of the Soviet Union.

United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "This is an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight. America must never accept it".

Utah's Republican Senator Orrin Hatch told journalists that many "wish the Mueller investigation would go away", but added, "that's not going to happen".

Some US lawmakers said shutting down the investigation early would be a mistake.

Tuesday was the first day of his former campaign head Paul Manafort's trial on charges of tax evasion and bank fraud which were brought by Mueller's team.
