'Real Possibility' That 'Secret Society' Text Was Joke Between FBI Lovers, Sen. Johnson Says

As Axios recently reported, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has also been "pressuring" FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire McCabe on Trump's behest.

The news about Trump's alleged discrediting campaign comes day nearly a day after the New York Times revealed the president ordered Mueller's firing last June but backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than follow his directions. He clarified he sees no evidence Trump wants to fire Mueller now.

A former Department of Justice appointee under former President Barack Obama said special counsel Robert Mueller "almost certainly won't indict" President Donald Trump at the conclusion of his investigation.

Collins told CNN's "State of the Union" that it would "not hurt" for Congress to approve added protections for Mueller, but she didn't offer a timeline. And I think ideas will be funneled to them, and we'll see what they come up with.

Nunes, who drafted the memo along with the help of his staff, denied Burr's staff request for a copy of the document, CNN reported Wednesday, citing three sources familiar with the matter.

Turkey's Syrian Offensive Risks Direct Confrontation with US
In Washington, the Pentagon said that it carefully tracked weapons provided to the YPG and would continue discussions with Turkey. In 2016, Turkey launched a cross-border operation with Syrian opposition forces into Jarablus.

The rare bipartisan move brings the focus, at least momentarily, back to the initial subject of several different congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and whether Trump's campaign was involved.

Collins said likewise that firing Rosenstein would be a "terrible mistake" and would recall the "Saturday Night Massacre", where then-President Richard Nixon sought to remove the special prosecutor investigating him, prompting leaders of the Justice Department to resign rather than quash the probe.

Despite no new indictments having come since that of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, the Russian Federation investigation has been accelerating at a rapid pace, with more and more names regularly being added to the list of those who've already been questioned.

The first few stories that alleged President Trump was planning to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller involved a few equivocations.

Nunes has reportedly denied Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr's (R-N.C.) staff access to a classified memo detailing allegations of government surveillance abuse that is tied to the ongoing Russian Federation election meddling investigation, TheHill.com reported Wednesday.

Gerry Adams has been the president of the party since 1983 but in 2017, announced he would be resigning from his post. She also said: "I believe we are capable of achieving anything that we set our minds to".

"Probably the reason this leaked is because people in the White House wanted to give the president some taste of what the public reaction would be if he fired Mueller to discourage him from doing that", Seidman explained.

'We know that if he tried to, it would be the end of his presidency, ' Graham said.

Trump has fumed about the missing messages, saying on Twitter that they represent "one of the biggest stories in a long time".

President Trump walks away after answering a reporter's question as he returns to the White House on January 26 in Washington, DC. I believe it's something that Mueller should look at. Ted Cruz's "New York values" slight against Trump during the Republican presidential primary.

McCarthy expressed concern that texts between Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who were having an extramarital affair, showed a political bias against Trump. Instead, Trump's lawyers have suggested that they provide Trump's written answers to the special counsel's questions.
