Trump and the Mexico, Australia Phone Call Dump

Trump says ties with Russia at 'all-time low,' blames Congress

Legal experts said the use of a grand jury shows that the federal Russia probe has now gone far beyond the investigation of Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, who misled colleagues about his discussions with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, before Trump's inauguration.

Two must-do items will dominate the agenda: increasing the government's debt limit to prevent a catastrophic default on USA obligations like interest payments and Social Security checks; and passing a temporary spending bill to keep government agencies up and running. A subpoena related to Manafort also was issued from Alexandria.

He said they were in discussions with the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the hope they would take up the bill, a step toward a vote in the full Senate.

"It could be anybody that's on the grand jury", Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. But DOJ rules specify that there are only certain specific reasons that a special counsel could be fired. By that time, unusual communications between the Trump campaign and Russian officials had pinged on US intelligence agencies' radar.

"While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russian Federation, this legislation is significantly flawed", Trump said in a message to lawmakers known as a signing statement.

"President's outside counsel has not received any requests for documentation or information about this".

What is a grand jury? . The White House has every interest in bringing this to a prompt and fair conclusion. "The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller".

Lawyers for Trump Jr. and Kushner did not immediately respond to requests for comment. He has also suggested that he might attempt to fire Mueller, a former FBI director whose investigation falls under the purview of the Department of Justice.

Republicans also have defended Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the former Alabama GOP senator, against Trump criticism and threats of firing him and are mulling bipartisan legislation that would protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from being dismissed by Trump.

Sekulow denied that was Trump's plan.

"I pray many times a day and read the Bible every single night before I go to bed", he said.

To Australia's prime minister, Trump complains that a deal on asylum seekers makes him look bad and says he had a more pleasant conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The sooner that Bob Mueller and his team are able to get the facts out about Russian involvement and answer the question of whether or not there is any criminal wrongdoing or collusion between the Russians and members of President Trump's campaign team, the better off we all are".

Trump's defiant yet calibrated message followed significant breaking news on Thursday over Mueller's probe into allegations of collusion between Trump campaign aides and Moscow, that once again electrified Washington.
