Trump Says He Has Not Considered Firing Mueller, Contradicting Himself

Trump Says He Has Not Considered Firing Mueller, Contradicting Himself

On Thursday, Mr Manafort dropped a law firm representing him in the Mueller-led investigation, switching to one with expertise in global tax cases - indicating that Mr Manafort expects Mr Mueller to focus on his foreign financial entanglements.

Long-time political consultant and lobbyist Paul Manafort is being investigated for money laundering and has been targeted as someone who might testify against former colleagues, said two people familiar with the work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe.

A firing of Mueller should lead to the creation of a modern-day analogue of the Senate Select Watergate Committee to investigate all matters involved in the Russian Federation scandals and Trump's obstruction of the investigation.

"I have not, but to do that early in the morning, whether or not it was appropriate you'd have to ask them", Trump said.

Whether Manafort, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn or anyone else decides to strike a deal with the government is being closely watched by people in and outside the probe.

The documents "would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump". "I'm very proud of what we've done at the border", Mr Trump said, likely referring to Mr Sessions' crackdown on illegal immigration.

She said that she would present all evidence if summoned by the parliamentary committee, formed to probe allegations by her against the PTI chairman.

Lawyers said the special counsel may have been motivated to use a search warrant over concerns that evidence might be concealed or destroyed, which sometimes happens in terrorism and drug trafficking cases.

FBI agents showed up at the residence without prior notice before dawn on July 26 searching for assorted documents that might have a bearing on the Russian Federation investigation, the daily said, adding that they did take away certain written materials they found there.

Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni says Federal Bureau of Investigation agents obtained a warrant and searched one of Manafort's homes.

Manafort is a central figure in Mueller's expanding investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential campaign.

While Trump says he has no ties to Russia, Mueller may invite the president's son Eric to meet with a grand jury he empaneled to discuss what he reportedly told golf writer James Dodson. 'Russia had nothing to do with me winning, ' he said.

Recent media reports suggested that investigators have reached out to Manafort's son-in-law, with whom he'd entered into some real estate dealings. Gates also worked on the Trump campaign, transition and for a pro-Trump group.
