Buried in tonight's Postreport is this important revelation: FBI General Counsel James A. Baker did not want now-former FBI Director Jim Comey to "assure then-President-elect Trump that the FBI was not investigating him personally".
Special counsel Robert Mueller has brought 13 lawyers on board to handle the Russian Federation investigation, with plans to hire more, according to his spokesman Peter Carr. In a statement, Gorelick says that after the appointment of the special counsel, she advised Kushner "to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us". "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry".
The investigation is still in the early stages, CNNreported, and not yet any indication that Jared Kushner or others involved in the probe could face criminal charges.
It's not entirely clear why Kushner met with Gorkov. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet.
Kovind quits as Bihar Governor
President Pranab Mukherjee has accepted the resignation, a communiqué issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan said on June 20. Ram Nath Kovind , who was nominated as NDA's presidential candidate on Monday, has resigned as the Governor of Bihar .
Comey testified last week that he also felt pressured to drop the Flynn probe. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last month, citing the Russian Federation investigation as the reason. So I do think that - I caution the special counsel to stop with these leaks, conduct the investigation, and to allow Americans to believe what he's doing is ethical and above board.
The decision to hire Cullen has been in the works for weeks, aides to the vice president said. "And so that was his view throughout", Comey said. "And in fact, when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself - I said, you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".
Mueller's plans emerged just a week after Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Trump pressed him in February to ease up on an investigation into Flynn.
The newspaper noted Mueller had requested interviews with CIA Director Dan Coats, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.
Trump spoke to Coats and Rogers about the Russian Federation investigation, according to officials.
