USA says Russian Federation meddling not 'robust' as 2016

USA says Russian Federation meddling not 'robust' as 2016

Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told reporters Wednesday that the President's legal team has received a response from Mueller's team regarding their counter-proposal for a potential interview with the President. Giuliani has repeatedly warned that such an interview would expose Trump to legal danger, saying that if Trump made any misstep or if Mueller later determined that other witnesses were more credible than Trump about what he had said and done, the president could face accusations of perjury. Mueller's team is accountable to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Referring to an investigation that is examining his own actions, Trump called Mueller's probe "a bad situation" that should be stopped "before it continues to stain our country any further". He also called it a "a disgrace to USA".

"Glad to see the White House finally do something about election security - even if it's only a press conference", Warner tweeted. From left, also listening, were White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, national security adviser John Bolton, Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and National Security Agency Director Gen. Paul Nakasone. She insisted the president's tweets are an "opinion" - but not an order.

The special counsel's office did not respond immediately to Politico's request for comment. His lawyers have previously sought to bar any questions about actions Trump has taken as president, the Post reports. Investigators still want to have the ability to ask some follow-up questions in person, but Trump's team doesn't want to allow it.

Giuliani said he "is not going to give a lot of hope" that an interview happens, and said he is opposed to the idea, even though he said Trump wants to do one. 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's call for an end to the Mueller probe came on the second day of his former campaign manager's trial in Alexandria, Virginia.

"I've said all along I see no evidence of collusion".

"Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, one of the most successful in history, is a TOTAL HOAX", the president said Wednesday.

Seeking to distance himself from his ex-campaign chairman, Mr Trump tweeted: "He worked for me for a very short time". Earlier this summer, Parscale tweeted that Trump should fire Sessions in order to bring the Mueller probe to an end.

"The president is not obstructing; he's fighting back".

That includes trumped-up charges against his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and distorting the outcome of the Helsinki summit to make it appear he was beholden to Russian Federation, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak about private conversations.

In a further tweet, Trump suggested Manafort has been harshly mistreated.

A senior US official said the Russian meddling campaign had accelerated and grown more sophisticated since the 2016 election and was not directed at boosting one political party over another. "There is now highly credible evidence that the president of the United States is committing obstruction of justice in real time, right before our eyes".

Speaking to Democracy Now on July 30, MIT emeritus professor Noam Chomsky referred to the media's obsession with Russian collusion as "marginalia".

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said that the president was obstructing justice in "full public view".
