Ex-FBI official offers fascinating theory that Mueller grand jury wanted to subpoena Trump

Published

on

The former assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI presented a fascinating theory on one particular section of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Frank Figliuzzi, an analyst for MSNBC, was interviewed by anchor Brian Williams during the network’s special coverage of the report’s release.

Reading through the report, Figliuzzi said, “I’m finding evidence of the mind of Mueller and even, perhaps, the mind of the grand jury sitting in this case.”

Figliuzzi drew attention to Appendix C of the report.

“So that appendix begins explaining that for over a year, Mueller sought and sought and fought for a personal sit-down with the president and of course, that was declined,” he explained. “And he discusses the insufficiency of written responses and why he needs to talk to the president, but then we see a redaction.”

“Now, I don’t know how to have x-ray vision…I can’t see through black ink very well, but I’m going to make an educated guess here based on the context of what comes before this blacked-out redaction and what comes immediately after it,” he said.

“But what is behind that redacted portion of the grand jury material? I think it is the grand jury saying we want the president in front of this grand jury, we need to know why he is not being interviewed personally,” Figliuzzi explained. “And that is the context I see this Appendix C giving us.”

Trump angrily demands newspaper reveal unnamed sources behind bombshell report on his Russia policy

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

In a tweet Monday night, the president lashed out at the network over its polling and called it “fake news’ — an epithet he usually reserves for mainstream outlets:

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.
