Trump amplifies his attacks on Russia investigators

Trump amplifies his attacks on Russia investigators

After Judicial Watch first made their request for records regarding the scope of the Mueller probe, the Justice Department refused to acknowledge whether any such memo existed.

President Donald Trump calls them his "warriors": a band of four House Republicans defending Trump with a relentless counterattack against the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation that thrills the president even as it unsettles some House GOP colleagues who think they're going too far.

Mueller could not have barred them from serving on the team based exclusively on their political contributions.

Trump criticized the leak of the questions.

Since Donald Trump continues to waver about his intention to give Robert Mueller an interview, his staff is simultaneously preparing the president to answer Mueller's questions while making the case that he couldn't possibly be asked to do something so demanding.

"Is this Phony Witch Hunt going to go on even longer so it wrongfully impacts the Mid-Term Elections, which is what the Democrats always intended?"

Although significant portions of the released memo were redacted, one broad aspect of Mueller's scope included investigating whether Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, "committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials" or "committed a crime or crimes arising out of payments he received from the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych". Some members of his team made political contributions to Democrats, including Clinton. Federal regulations and Justice Department policy prohibit the consideration of political affiliation in hiring and other personnel actions involving career attorneys. Trump wrote on Twitter. Strzok's texts using Lisa Page, " an previous Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney who resigned last week, became fodder for conservatives who believed they showed bias in the agency. What a total mess.

Text messages between Page and Strzok, who was assigned to Mueller's investigation, show them expressing negative views about Trump and referring to him in derogatory ways. So far, the special counsel's office has charged 19 people - including four Trump campaign advisers - and three Russian companies.

In an op-ed published Monday, Dershowitz says he agrees with the judge's interpretation of the Mueller's team mode of operation.

"We are pleased, especially after Judge Ellis's hearing, that our lawsuit is causing the Justice Department to rethink its cover-up of the "scope memo" for Mueller", Fitton said in a statement. Mueller revealed that the original appointment order was left vague to protect sensitive information, and that the memo was used to address the specifics of the investigation.
