Trump refused to answer any of Mueller’s questions about obstruction of justice

Published

While many of the questions special counsel Robert Mueller submitted to President Donald Trump focused on obstruction of justice by the president, others had to do with the president’s relationship with Russia.

The New York Times reported Sunday that many administration officials sought specifics about the meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, one senior official said. The president refused, leaving even the top State Department aides confused. It has become one of many concerns investigators have looked into as the probe continues.

According to the Times, Mueller asked Trump if he had discussions with Putin at any point during the campaign or if he spoke about sanctions to anyone. Trump didn’t answer any of the questions about obstruction but when it came to questions about Putin, Trump did answer.

Since it was revealed the FBI began investigating whether Trump was a Russian asset, the president’s defenders have defended him over the top law enforcement.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News he intends to ask FBI director Christopher Wray if the investigation is real or “fake news.”

Graham decided there should be greater checks and balances to prevent any investigation like the ones described in the Times and Post. Yet, that’s exactly what the top law enforcement agency is tasked with doing.

“I find it astonishing, and to me, it tells me a lot about the people running the FBI,” Graham said. “I don’t trust them as far as I throw them.”

Published

Yesterday, a judge paused Mary Trump's tell-all book on President Donald Trump and his family, but Wednesday evening, a New York appellate judge ruled that Simon & Schuster could move forward with releasing the book.

According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.

"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was so incensed that the media learned of his staffers who caught COVID-19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he had a kind of inquisition for healthcare workers to investigate if they linked the story.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that those familiar to his reaction said that outside of the BOK center, Trump campaign staff were being tested before the event. When the information was released, they scrambled, quizzing who leaked the information about the positive cases.

Healthcare workers were "then given a different list of people to test, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events who, like others in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," said the Post.
