Robert Mueller hires 13 lawyers to handle Russia investigation

Mr Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters.

The Post noted that Mueller’s probe into Russia’s attempts to meddle in the election and potential ties between Trump campaign staff and the Kremlin is still in its early stages.

The idea that this is a witch hunt, as Trump childishly tweeted this morning, is getting more and more laughable as each passing day brings about another questionable tie or secret dealing with Russian Federation taken by this president or those in his orbit.

Gorkov’s state-owned bank Vnesheconombank (VEB) has been under USA sanctions since 2014.

“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story”.

Kushner’s attorney said any scrutiny on his financial dealings would be a standard part of the investigation.

He is, however, the only one of those people who remains close to Trump.

The 36-year-old is reported to have been bothered by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s decision to appoint Mueller as the special counsel.

The newspaper said the information came from officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

As the Mueller investigation grinds on, now just one month into its inquiry, the president of the United States spent Thursday having a cyber-conniption on Twitter.

Kenneth Starr, former independent counsel, expressed confidence that the caliber of lawyers in Mueller’s team would do a thorough job.

Trump, however, referred to the Post’s reporting as a “phony” story in a tweet Thursday. Last month, Kushner came under scrutiny after reports said the Federal Bureau of Investigation diverted its attention to the White House senior adviser in its Russian Federation probe. Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the president’s requests, officials said..

The Senate’s intelligence committee already has interviewed Johnson about the matter.

Trump spoke to Coats and Rogers about the Russian Federation investigation, according to officials.

“Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it”, Trump told Lester Holt of NBC News in an interview broadcast May 11.

Comey said he believed Trump was trying to get him to drop an investigation of the president’s former national security adviser, and that White House officials spread “lies, plain and simple” to cover up the reason for his dismissal.
