Trump 'pressured senior aides to give Ivanka a security clearance'

Trump implied on Monday that he would work with the panel: "I cooperate all the time with everybody", he told a reporter who asked whether he would help Nadler. While Cobb clearly does not agree with Trump's characterizations of the investigation, he said that he thinks his onetime boss will be exonerated - at least when it comes to Russian collusion. "I don't have a timeline".

Last week before three House committees, he testified Trump directed him to lie about hush money payments to an adult film actress and implicated the president's oldest son in the arrangement of those payments.

"Now that they realize the only Collusion with Russian Federation was done by Crooked Hillary Clinton & the Democrats, Nadler, Schiff and the Dem heads of the Committees have gone stone cold CRAZY", Mr Trump wrote, referring to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, and House Intelligence chairman Adam Schiff.

Aiming to appeal to the public's sympathies, Trump said that instead of working together on legislation on issues like health care and infrastructure, Democrats "want to play games".

Robert Ray, who succeeded Starr as independent counsel in 1999, said that he saw the joint prosecutions as a way for Mueller to return matters needing further inquiry to the Justice Department and a sign that he is closing up shop.

The House Oversight Committee and the White House are in a standoff over viewing security documents just a day after the administration ignored a deadline to turn over information related to what the committee alleges are "security clearance abuses".

House Oversight, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committee Chairmen Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler have already announced investigations into the president's personal finances, potential ties to foreign countries, and alleged obstruction of justice.

Asked for comment, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "We don't comment on security clearances". He pledged to move quickly. "And if the president's reelected, it'll go beyond that". ABC's commentators are skeptical about this, claiming that Trump tweeted about pardons, but only very generally and nothing in direct or even indirect reference to the Mueller probe.

The list of document requests also includes the National Rifle Association and Trump's embattled charitable foundation, which he is shutting down after agreeing to a court-supervised process.

Comey was leading an investigation into Russian Federation activities in the 2016 USA presidential election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign when the president fired him in May 2017.

The committee is investigation reports that President Donald Trump possibly interfered in order to assure that his daughter Ivanka Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner received security clearances that they may not have qualified for otherwise.

Couple the muddled special counsel regulations with DoJ guidance suggesting that indictment of a sitting president would be unconstitutional, and we get the flawless storm: a president above the law by virtue of "rules" laid down by people within the president's own chain of command-i.e., DoJ lawyers. If you can't win, what do you do? "Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American people that it ought to happen". I've known him for 30 years as a prosecutor and a friend. "How do they win an election?"
