Trump: 'I feel very badly for General Flynn'

Trump: 'I feel very badly for General Flynn'”

The Kremlin on Monday issued several sharp, successive denials to questions of whether a senior aide to then president-elect Donald Trump convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin not to retaliate to sanctions issued by then President Barack Obama.

The fact that Mueller removed top FBI agent Peter Strzok from his team in August - while news of his anti-Trump texts only surfaced last weekend - has led many to wonder why this tidbit was kept hidden until now.

Dowd told the Washington Post that the tweet was sloppily worded and that it's inaccurate to say the president knew that Flynn had lied to the FBI. And one of the advisers, who speaks to Trump regularly, said the president had not discussed with him the possibility of issuing any pardons.

Mueller's Russia probe is causing anxiety, paranoia in the White House where 'everyone thinks they're being recorded.' President Trump flies to Utah today with an announcement on national monuments cuts. The move was taken in response to allegations backed by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia-backed hackers stole information from the Democratic National Committee's e-mail servers and sought to swing the election for Trump.

CNN justice correspondent Shimon Prokupecz acknowledged Monday it has not been firmly established that Trump knew the FBI concluded Flynn had lied and that Yates "wouldn't specifically get into what was said" during the agents' interview with Flynn. With Nixon, hush money paid, telling people to lie, destroying evidence. He said it is important that Yates refused to elaborate on the interview.

CVS will buy Aetna, one of the country's largest health insurers, for $69 billion, the companies announced Sunday.

FBI Director James Comey, in his testimony to the House Oversight Committee in July 2016, said, "We have no basis to conclude that she lied to the FBI". And all who purport to care about American credibility must stop pooh-poohing the underlying behavior here at issue.

In one conversation with Kislyak, Flynn asked Russia to delay or prevent a vote on a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlements. It's composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job.

He added: "We who teach and study legal ethics must resist becoming advocates and letting Trump's perversion of norms distort our own judgment".

Then-White House spokesman Sean Spicer said after Flynn's firing that it was the result of a "trust issue" and the White House counsel's office had determined there was not a legal issue. The FBI is strong.

"Clinton lied many times to the FBI, nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life".

President Donald Trump's personal attorney John Dowd believes Trump cannot be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.

Let's put aside the serious constitutional (and practical) issue of whether a president may be prosecuted in a judicial proceeding for obstruction.

"This is part of a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee's oversight work, particularly oversight of their use of the Steele dossier", Nunes said in a statement. The special counsel is supposed to be objective and nonpartisan, but it appears Robert Mueller's team is anything but.

The fight over the highly contested Senate seat, which became vacant when Trump tapped Jeff Sessions to be his attorney general, comes at a time when sexual misconduct has become a national discussion.

Pence, who served as head of Trump's transition, has not publicly commented on Flynn's plea.
