Trump Lawyers Clash Over How Much to Cooperate With Russia Inquiry-

 

"WASHINGTON — President Trump’s legal team is wrestling with how much to cooperate with the special counsel looking into Russian election interference, an internal debate that led to an angry confrontation last week between two White House lawyers and that could shape the course of the investigation.

 

At the heart of the clash is an issue that has challenged multiple presidents during high-stakes Washington investigations: how to handle the demands of investigators without surrendering the institutional prerogatives of the office of the presidency.

Similar conflicts during the Watergate and Monica S. Lewinsky scandals resulted in court rulings that limited a president’s right to confidentiality.

 

The debate in Mr. Trump’s West Wing has pitted Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel, against Ty Cobb, a lawyer brought in to manage the response to the investigation.

Mr. Cobb has argued for turning over as many of the emails and documents requested by the special counsel as possible in hopes of quickly ending the investigation — or at least its focus on Mr. Trump....

Here's just a few things that should be "fireable offenses" in the White House.

You wish. The President is above most laws - and most of the above are not laws to begin with - and those that might be haven't been broken in a provable way.

 

If there were laws against being an a-hole, most of us would be in the *****er some time or other.

http://politi.co/2xuXMSD


And Trump's lawyers had warned him that Kushner should be fired due to his Russian connections. That aides could be subpoenaed if they overheard Jared, and that Trump shouldn't meet with Jared without a lawyer. Of course Trump only makes things worse for himself by not listening to his lawyers.

Right. Only Clinton people have the protection to lie.

 

And they'd damn well better if they want to stay healthy.

Good advice.  Trump isn't going to be loyal to them, why should they cover for him?  They would

 be smart to look after their own self interest.

Trump’s Congressional Allies Are Trying to Manipulate the Steele Dossier to Undercut the Russia Investigation -   Rep. Devin Nunes’ renewed role is troubling,

 

 

"....It may seem odd that Republicans believe going after the Steele memos, which included salacious allegations about Trump, is a way to help the president. But they appear to have two goals: to suggest the Steele memos were actually cooked up by the Russian government—and thus are proof that Moscow did not favor Trump in 2016—and to undercut the FBI’s Russia investigation by linking its origins to the Steele memos. ....

 

...Democrats see an effort to gin up controversy over of the Steele memos to protect Trump. “They tried to conflate two things so that they could create the false narrative that the Russians were meddling on both sides,”.....

FBI Director Wray: No 'whiff of interference' with Mueller investigation

 

Wray said he has "enormous respect" for Mueller and confidence in the team Mueller has assembled.
 
"He's really running that investigation," Wray said of Mueller. "The FBI have dedicated agents to it and other support to it. So there's a great group of people working on it."

Trump loses leverage as Russia scandal investigation intensifies-

 

 

 


"Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on its investigation into Paul Manafort and his financial transactions, according to several people familiar with the matter.

 

 

The cooperation is the latest indication that the federal probe into President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman is intensifying. It also could potentially provide Mueller with additional leverage to get Manafort to cooperate in the larger investigation into Trump’s campaign, as

Trump does not have pardon power over state crimes....

 

If Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman who insists he’s done nothing wrong, believes a presidential pardon is his get-out-of-jail-free card, so he has no incentive to cooperate with investigators, Mueller’s work with Schneiderman reapplies pressure.

Since a president can’t pardon a defendant in a state case, the trump card, so to speak, has effectively been taken away.

And as it turns out, that’s not the only development of note in the Trump-Russia scandal:....
