Ken Starr to Mueller: Don't Make Russia Probe a 'Fishing Expedition'

Subpoenas have reportedly been issued in relation to a 2016 Trump Tower meeting that included Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer who promised to disclose – but never delivered – dirt on Hillary Clinton

Senate blocks Trump's ability to make recess appointments

This is where the president's lack of a poker face hurts him. "The President weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had".

After losing a key vote on health care and then having his hands tied on dealing with Russian Federation by a vote on sanctions that he has tried to disown, Trump has become openly critical of Congress - even though his Republican party has a majority in both houses.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended President Donald Trump's decision to craft a letter defending his son's meeting with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

"It needs to go up", she said. (Grand juries date back to the Magna Carta.) Just as Trump contends that in America only whites suffer from discrimination, so too-it stands to reason-do whites invariably lose whenever minorities are allowed to sit in judgment. He later insisted that his support "will never change!" That's down from the two-thirds of Republicans who strongly approved of the president's performance in June. Just 43 percent of that demographic approve, while 50 percent disapprove.

The president's struggles already have prompted public speculation about his political future. The intriguing question is what the new White House chief of staff, John Kelly, will do if Trump can not stand it any more and impulsively tries to fire Mueller. Pence called the report "disgraceful". While Trump regularly says that he has no investments in Russia, Russia certainly has investments in him - at least a rotating cast of oligarchs and mobsters do. "Don't worry about a Congress that isn't supporting legislation to get big ticket items done".

"The White House is obviously going to be anxious about this". It's a case with multiple potential targets and lines of inquiry, including Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, Jared Kushner, The Donald, The Donald Jr., collusion, obstruction, campaign law violations, bribery and money laundering, among others. Trump, however, insisted the Russian story - despite what the emails stated - is a total fabrication.

Immigration is expected to continue being a focus for Trump in the coming weeks, including a push for the border wall. But of course the White House isn't located in the heart of Trump country. He also promised that he would attempt the impossible and unite the scattershot efforts of Trump's communications strategy.

"If Trump was flip-flopping on this topic, I think this disqualify them in the eyes of his supporters, "she said". Together, his team has more than a century of legal experience. He also declared in a tweet that the ban on transgender people in the army. The policy is now being crafted.

Those who hold a "strongly favorable" view of the president fell from 35.3 percent in April to 28.6 percent at the beginning of August, the poll found. "The Senate should remove even the possibility of it coming about", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday, while making the case for pro forma sessions. "Yes, I do. He has a good time sometimes, but I think on important issues he's very honest". But if they're sniffing around in unrelated areas in search of a crime, using malfeasance discovered well beyond the purview of Russia, Russia Russia to nail Trump, will been seen by many Americans as targeted, political, and illegitimate. Their suspicions against Mueller have been heightened by his personal and professional closeness with fired FBI Director James Comey, his decision to hire numerous Democratic donors onto his growing team, and various reports suggesting that he may be peering at evidence that arguably goes beyond the Russian Federation matter.
