Trump is not the only one who needs to be investigated

Ms. Shiflett's president should clearly be investigated for obstruction of justice. Only an attorney working for Trump can give the president unvarnished, unconflicted advice without fear it will become public.

Lawyers said the president needs his own counsel regardless of whether he is facing potential criminal liability for his responses to the Russian Federation investigation.

Congressional Republicans are saying investigations into President Trump's alleged actions with regard to the FBI should be given the time and space they require.

Reuters independently confirmed the Times account.

We are writing to request that the Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee launch an immediate joint investigation into whether President Donald Trump and his top officials are engaged in an ongoing conspiracy to obstruct the criminal, counter-intelligence, and oversight investigations now being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and Congress into members of his presidential campaign and their contacts with Russian officials.

As the controversy swirled, Trump said in a speech to US Coast Guard Academy graduates in CT he did not get elected "to serve the Washington media or special interests".

Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Trump's meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed.

She eventually finds Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, at a New Jersey golf course. "Sean, come on, I would never do that", says "Trump".

Moreover, said Wright and other lawyers, the president can't be sure advice he receives from White House lawyers will remain confidential. "The Office of the President is a part of the federal government", the appeals court said. That is not just an impeachable offense, it is a criminal offense.

"As a practical matter, Trump won't get the benefit of privilege if this ever goes to a grand jury", said Wright.

Of course, President Trump will only benefit from a private lawyer if he listens to that lawyer's advice.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded that the Justice Department name a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian Federation matter. She cited Trump's out-of-court comments about the judge overseeing the Trump University fraud litigation as an example. One who spoke on background said president may be weighing the political downside of hiring his own lawyer. During the campaign a year ago, Trump praised Putin and voiced hope that badly strained Russia-U.S. relations would improve, but there have been few signs of closer cooperation against terrorism.

Asked by reporters whether he thought the allegations against Trump were grounds for impeachment, Republican Representative Justin Amash said, "If the allegations are true, yes". Neither responded to my emails.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's Republican chairman and Democratic vice chairman sent a letter to Comey "seeking his appearance before the [committee] in both open and closed sessions", the panel said in a statement on Wednesday. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., who told the press: "I've asked Comey to come before the Judiciary Committee to tell his side of the story".
