  • McConnell Thinks Congratulating Putin Isn't A Great Idea

Graham said that while he has seen no evidence of collusion between Trump associates and Russians, "to stop investigation without cause, I think, would be a constitutional crisis".

"Absolutely. I am confident that he'll be able to do that".

"What the president ought to do is quit tweeting about Mueller", Gingrich said. "I've received assurances that his firing is not even under consideration", Ryan said after a round of attacks on Mueller from President Trump prompted concerns from GOP lawmakers that Trump may be considering firing Justice Department officials until he gets to one who will fire Mueller. "And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!" he followed up on Sunday, adding Monday, "A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!"

There's been an important shift over the last few days in President Donald Trump's approach to the ongoing special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election as his rhetoric and his legal team have begun to reflect an increased focus on winning the fight for public opinion rather than cooperating with the actual probe.

After the incident, buses took students to Leonardtown High School , about eight miles away, where parents could pick them up. During the shooting, an armed school resources officer reacted and exchanged shots with the shooter, Sheriff Cameron added.

So as the President slips political constraints by shuffling his White House and foreign policy team and rages against convention, Mueller and his investigators have Trump penned in with no easy means of escape.

A late attempt to help young "Dreamers", who were brought illegally into the United States by their parents, failed, however, as a White House proposal was "off the table as soon as they offered it because it was so biased", said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.

Though it has grossed $96 million in two weeks of release in China, Black Panther slid steeply in its second weekend. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

McConnell's remarks came after a weekend that left many anxious that the White House was preparing to fire Mueller in an effort to stifle the ongoing investigation. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, said: "I don't think that's going to happen so I just think it's not necessary, and obviously legislation requires a presidential signature". "I can't see it being anything other than a corrupt goal".

Everything Trump has done in the last 96 hours suggests that he believes the idea of keeping the gloves off Mueller hasn't had any effect. Get rid of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller for incompetence.

Trump this week added a new lawyer, Joseph diGenova, a former USA attorney for the District of Columbia, to his legal team.

In an apparent effort to bolster its star power, the Trump legal had also reached out to high-profile Washington attorney Ted Olson from the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP about joining the group.
