Mueller reportedly seeks to interview Trump over obstruction of justice issue

Trump Calls for Sessions to End Russia Probe

But in an interview yesterday, two of Trump's lawyers said Trump was not ordering Sessions to take any specific action.

White House officials and Trump have long said it is time for Mueller to end his probe, present his findings to Congress and return to private life.

Giuliani told Politico on Thursday that Trump's legal team was still haggling with the special counsel's office over whether Mueller would be allowed to ask the president questions related to possible obstruction of justice, but that he expects a decision to be made soon.

Trump, in a series of tweets blasting the investigation, said Sessions should "stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further". He also called it a "a disgrace to USA".

Sessions, however, already recused himself a year ago - handing off oversight to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "It's the president's opinion", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a news briefing.

But Mr. Mueller remains interested in key areas that Mr. Trump's lawyers worry will prove problematic for him, particularly whether he obstructed justice when he fired James Comey as the FBI Director.

Writing on Twitter, Trump dismissed the case against Manafort, saying its "old charges have nothing to do with Collusion", and questioned why the government did not tell him that Manafort was under investigation before he hired him to be part of his 2016 campaign.

Trump has repeatedly termed the probe as "a hoax".

He added: "There are two things specifically that are worrying Donald Trump at the moment". But Trump, flustered by the probe, is reportedly pushing his team to keep negotiating under the belief he can clear himself of wrongdoing in an interview.

Trump says he would 'certainly meet' Iranian president
Good for the country. 'Good for the country, good for them, good for us and good for the world. Trump withdrew from the landmark nuclear accord in May, saying it was too generous to Iran.


US intelligence officials are anxious Russian Federation and perhaps other foreign actors look to interfere in November's elections, just as Moscow did in 2016, members of President Donald Trump's national security team said Thursday.

Trump raised his own concerns about Russian meddlers this fall but claimed they would seek to help Democrats trying to win control of the House and Senate.

"To be honest, this is probably going to be the, and I'm going to say this at this table, is the most pro-black president that we've had in our lifetime", stated Scott.

In his email, Goldstone said that the "Crown prosecutor of Russia" offered to provide the information on Clinton to the Trump campaign in a meeting with Aras Agalarov.

"Just because @realDonaldTrump obstructs justice in full public view by calling on Sessions to interfere in Mueller investigation doesn't mean it's not obstruction of justice".

Nielsen, Wray and Nakasone had all gathered earlier this week in New York City with leaders of top finance, energy and telecommunications companies for a cybersecurity summit, where they spoke of the urgent need for a collective, collaborative approach to security. That, like the prosecution of former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn for lying about phone calls with the Russians during the transition, has been something Trump has tried frantically to avoid.

Similarly, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tx.) implied that Trump's tweets were because the investigation was "leading closer" to the president.

In view of the tweet, "I think it would be helpful to have the debate on that bill", Collins said.
