Trump, who has called the investigations a hoax and witch hunt, is inclined to release it, CNN has reported. Dowd did not name the people nor provide a breakdown of how many were interviewed only by Mueller's team.
She said other Trump proposals for immigration change, including a crackdown on illegal immigrants and legal immigration for extended family members, are too complicated to tackle at this point. Susan Collins of ME shifting toward supporting a bill to protect the Special Counsel shows that Trump area of concern is with the middle. Those will include the president's elder son.
"I see no evidence that President Trump wants to fire Mr. Mueller now", Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday on ABC News' "This Week". A decision that many of them will have to take now is if the legislation preventing Mueller from being fired by the president - previously sitting around in draft form - now needs to be acted upon. "And that was seven months ago and the White House counsel is still on the job, and Mr. Mueller is still aggressively investigating, and that's as it should be".
White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who is representing the presidency in the Mueller probe, declined comment, citing respect for special counsel. They say it's part of a broader GOP campaign to undermine the bureau and, by extension, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
McCarthy expressed concern that texts between Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an extramarital affair, showed a political bias against Trump. "But if they agree, I have a feeling that that will be a bill that can go all the way to the president's desk, and that's our goal", said Collins.
"Typical New York Times", he added. Cornyn are the leads in the Senate, but they've been very open to input. Senate Judiciary is one of those panels, and late Thursday, Grassley revealed additional texts in a letter he sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Here's a look at all the times Republican lawmakers tried to undermine the Russian Federation investigation.
"People say all sorts of things that they're going to do, and then they calm down and they think better of it and they get talked out of it", he said. Schumer singled out a classified memo that the House intelligence committee has produced and may move to make public.
President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr., said he is betting that the Democratic response to the House intelligence memo will leak to the media before the actual memo is made public.
Likewise for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who said "the independent investigation must continue without interference from the White House or Congress".
Republican senators have been mostly silent on the memo as House Republicans have hinted at its eventual release.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes continued to be a powerful force in the House's Russian Federation investigation, despite his promise that he stepped aside as the head of the probe as he came under scrutiny himself from the House Ethics Committee.
