Trump transition team ordered to save materials on Russia, Ukraine

President Trump is on his way to Miami, where he plans to announce changes to US policy toward Cuba.

Lawmakers and others have raised questions about whether it is appropriate for Rosenstein to oversee the special counsel as it now explores whether the president obstructed justice.

Starr, whose investigation into former President Bill Clinton began with a look into the Whitewater real estate deal but eventually grew to cover the Monica Lewinsky scandal, wrote of the importance of having an "outside investigation" that can skirt potential conflict of interest concerns when investigating matters on the executive branch - no matter whether suspicion of the President falls "rightly or wrongly".

President Donald Trump has lashed out at the investigators driving the Russian Federation investigation as "very bad and conflicted people", responding angrily to reports that the special counsel is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump himself took aim Friday at the senior Justice Department official responsible for appointing Mueller, accusing him on Twitter of leading a "Witch Hunt".

Also Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said his panel will investigate the removal of former FBI Director James Comey and "any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations".

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking. While the Trump administration initially said that letter was the reason the president fired Comey on May 9, Trump later said he did so because of the "Russia thing".

"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" Who would that be?

The focus on Rosenstein sharpened Friday because the President attacked the deputy attorney general in a tweet, blaming him for what he terms a "witch hunt".

Ultimately, it would be up to Mueller to decide whether there is enough evidence to recommend pursuing charges on any part of the investigation. They both happened to be there for the formal investiture ceremony for Neil Gorsuch, the new.

79 people presumed dead in London tower block fire
Residents who survived said they warned the building's manager about fire hazards for years but were ignored, Vigliotti reported . British Prime Minister Theresa May herself had come in for a barrage of criticism over her own response to the disaster.

Trump is the 45th President of the United States. I happened to be there for that ceremony. They are: Flynn; Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager; Rick Gates, Manafort's business partner; Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser; and Roger J. Stone Jr., an informal adviser to Mr. Trump.

As Mueller assembles his investigative team, statements by Trump's friend Christopher Ruddy this week set off new questions.

HORSLEY: It's a - it was a very unusual statement from the deputy attorney general. "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", he said. Like, don't believe the leakers essentially is what he's suggesting.

When President Barack Obama entered office, Rosenstein was asked to stay on and served for all eight years of the president's term.

"I appointed him; I stand by that decision, " he said.

The first time he told Trump was in his first meeting with the then-president-elect before the inauguration, on January 6. And he makes no apologies for that.

"The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people!"

HORSLEY: Good to be with you, Steve.
