Trump keeps up attacks on Mueller, McCabe, Comey

Trump Assails Special Counsel Mueller as Politically Biased in Russia Probe

Trump also took aim Sunday at McCabe and Comey.

The president has always been torn over how to approach the Mueller probe.

Those memos could be fodder for Mueller's probe if he is pursuing potential obstruction of justice by the president.

Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a Trump ally, told the same program that firing Mueller "would be inappropriate", and he doesn't believe it will happen. Any dismissal of Mueller would have to be carried out by Rosenstein, who has publicly expressed his support for Mueller. Trump has promoted a flawed theory that Democratic groups allied with Hillary Clinton poured money into the state senate campaign of McCabe's wife while the FBI was investigating Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state, thus buying improperly soft treatment from the bureau.

I think the White House has said 10 times, maybe more that they are not going to fire Robert Mueller. "And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!" - tweet Sunday. Maybe. Is it possible the agents and analysts working the case would have allowed him to politicize their investigation if he made leadership decisions inconsistent with the facts they unearthed?

"When he says it's a political witch hunt, I think he's right", said Christopher Ruddy, CEO of the conservative news website Newsmax and a longtime Trump friend.

Russians vote in presidential election across 11 time zones
Putin's victory will extend his total time in office to almost a quarter of a century, until 2024, by which time he will be 71. Voting fraud was widespread in Russia's 2011 parliamentary vote, triggering massive protests in Moscow against Putin's rule.

Marc Short, Mr Trump's congressional liaison, said the president's frustration is "well-warranted" because "there has been no evidence whatsoever of collusion". Trump continued his attacks on Comey in a series of scathing tweets over the weekend, alleging he was aware of wrongdoings ex-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe committed before being fired from the agency on Friday. Mr Trump sought to cast doubt on their accuracy.

A lawyer for dismissed former deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation director Andrew McCabe has blasted tweets by President Donald Trump as "childish" and stated there would be no response to individual tweets from POTUS.

As Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt point out in their book, "How Democracies Die", modern authoritarian leaders do not consolidate power by coming after wholly innocent people: They exploit the fact that nearly every person with a long public career - those who could be a check on the leader's power - has done something wrong, or something that can be cast as wrong, if scrutinized in a certain way.

TRUMP: "The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired".

Trump referred to him as "lying James Comey" in one tweet and "Sanctimonious James Comey" in another, adding that he "made McCabe look like a choirboy".

It wouldn't be unusual for a senior official to make notes soon after meeting with the president. With so many unanswered questions, it is unrealistic to expect the American people to accept the firing as fair when they have no factual basis on which to inform their thoughts.

2 shot, 1 killed at UAB, shooter dead
When staff was led to UAB Police headquarters, a woman was said to have had a panic attack and needed to be examined by medics. Two people are dead, including the suspect, and a third is recovering at the hospital following the active shooter situation.

The tweets, which also denounced Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation against him, provided the ideal opportunity for Comey to tease his book, which he took full advantage of.

The Big A: The manner in with US AG Sessions sacked Mr. McCabe, leaves the path clear for his incitement for lying to the FBI investigators investigating his questionable activities.

Other Democrats also chipped in their own offers for McCabe, a lifelong Republican, to work in various capacities to finish his term of service. Mr. Trump's personal lawyer John Dowd called for Rosenstein to "bring an end" to the Russian Federation investigation Saturday, adding to the tension.

In response, Rep Trey Gowdy, said: "If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it".

Trump's criticism of Mueller, a Republican, also came a day after his personal lawyer, John Dowd, called for an end to the special counsel's probe.

He quickly clarified that he was speaking for himself, not for the President. If Trump had left the investigation to the professionals in his Justice Department he wouldn't have this problem.
