  • One Way or Another, Donald Trump Will Have to Testify About Russia

On Jan. 5, Rosenstein traveled to Florida to speak to the Palm Beach Forum Club about the rule of law. Below, we offer a breakdown of the major players. He also served on Donald Trump's transition team. Trump has consistently denied any such sollusion. ("The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee refused to answer when a colleague asked him if he had coordinated his incendiary surveillance memo with the White House, The Daily Beast has learned.") This would be such a ludicrous, ham-handed effort to interfere clumsily and blatantly with the investigation that it might actually be true.

Sessions went off-script at the event to praise Rosenstein, saying he represents "the kind of quality and leadership that we want" at the Justice Department.

Most Americans trust the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and few people want to see special counsel Robert Mueller fired, according to new HuffPost/YouGov polling.

"I'm very concerned about it", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, said Friday on CNN's "The Situation Room".

Page is a key part - and possibly the entire point of - the memo.

United States plans new, smaller atomic bombs to keep Russian Federation in check
This is the first time since 2010 that the U.S. military has outlined its perception of future nuclear threats, the BBC reported. The U.S. now has roughly 1,400 nuclear weapons, down from a high of more than 12,000 during the 1980s.

The memo alleges that Rosenstein approved at least one FISA warrant of a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. Because the dossier was funded by Trump opponents.

But on "Fox and Friends", White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said Rosenstein's "mistake" should not lead to his firing.

Before the memo's release, Sen.

Christopher Wray waits in a hallway prior to a meeting on Capitol Hill on July 13, 2017.

If Trump fired Rosenstein, he would be able to appoint a new deputy AG who could fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and therefore bring the FBI's Russian Federation investigation to a close. Whatever happens with the memo, it's all the more clear that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 race must continue.

The chain started off from the Padman himself Arunachalam Muruganantham, the maker of low-priced sanitary napkins for rural women. With the picture, Akshay Kumar tweeted: "Yes, that's a Pad in my hand & there's nothing to be ashamed about".

Rosenstein, who had been confirmed by the Senate 94 to 6 and was known as an independent and apolitical prosecutor, was harshly attacked for his role in the Comey firing. "If the president uses this fake, frightful release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [deputy attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis". And there's no sense that Rachel Brand, the current No. 3 at the Justice Department, would be viewed any more favorably by Trump. The suspect memo is his latest trick.

"This lawsuit plainly seeks to interfere with Manafort's ongoing criminal prosecution", Justice Department attorneys wrote to Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday.
