Trump said a lot in Tampa but nothing about a 'witch hunt'

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives at a Make America Great Again Rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa Florida

Aras Agalarov had told an intermediary, Rob Goldstone, that Veselnitskaya had "information that would incriminate" Hillary Clinton, Goldstone wrote in an email to Trump Jr. on June 3, 2016.

Last week, members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee grilled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the lack of clarity surrounding the summit.

Emin Agalarov, an Azerbaijan-born pop star, found himself at the center of questions about the Trump campaign's potential ties to Russia when it became public a year ago that his publicist, Rob Goldstone, had reached out to Donald Trump Jr. about meeting with a Russian lawyer for dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Coats is addressing reporters Thursday during a White House briefing on the Trump Administration's efforts to prevent future foreign and outside interference in USA elections.

"It's not an order".

Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said that in his tweet Trump was expressing an opinion long espoused by his team. "He's fighting back", she said.

Sanders maintained, though, that the White House wants the investigation to "be completed", and said this should happen "sooner rather than later". Last week, the president's lawyers submitted a counteroffer to Mueller with specific conditions for an interview with Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Trump echoed his lawyer's argument on Twitter.

His remarks are notable because he himself has previously acknowledged the US Department of Justice should be free from political interference.

Trump has steadily attacked Sessions for recusing himself.

Rosenstein in turn appointed Mueller and is the person with the authority to fire him. Reaction from Democrats to the president's tweet was swift.

USA states to sue Trump administration over freezing fuel efficiency requirements
A drawn-out legal battle over the standards could hurt the auto industry as it tries to plan for coming model years. Some Republican lawmakers supported the mileage freeze, but environmental groups and many states assailed it.

Apple becomes first U.S. company worth $1 trillion
The company's fortunes were turbocharged by the launch of personal gadgets such as the iPod in 2001 and the iPhone in 2007. Virtual assistant Siri is built into Apple devices, and the company boasts the most popular smart watch on the market.

Assam NRC: Amit Shah asks opposition whether Indians have no rights
She said she would speak to the Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh. "Not guts but greed for power, driving them to polarise India over NRC".

"They ought to let them conclude their work", Thune said.

"There's a reason that the president's angry and, frankly, most of America is angry as well, and there's no reason he shouldn't be able to voice that opinion", Sanders said in response to a question.

Senator Orrin Hatch said he did not think Sessions had the power to end the probe and it would be unwise to do so.

Mueller already is interested in some of Trump's tweets to the extent they raise obstruction of justice concerns.

So it's obvious that not only is Trump's new claim false, but Trump knows it's false even when he says it.

"No collusion" - it's a defense President Trump has used against allegations that his campaign worked with Russian Federation to win the 2016 presidential election.

Seeking to distance himself from his ex-campaign chairman, Trump said, "He worked for me for a very short time". Prosecutors say between 2010 and 2014, Manafort made $60 million working for the Ukrainian government, hiding millions in foreign accounts so he didn't have to report his earnings to the IRS, and in 2015, Manafort's major client, former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, left for Russian Federation amid protests against the governor.

"It is a piece of evidence".

"The President did not issue an order or directive to the Department of Justice", Sekulow said in a statement to Fox News.

The tweets come at a particularly sensitive time in the investigation, as a federal jury in Virginia is hearing evidence in Manafort's trial on tax evasion and fraud charges.
