Caso Rusia, 'inédita cacería de brujas', dice Trump


Michael Flynn y otros asesores de la campaña de Donald Trump tuvieron contacto con funcionarios rusos y otros ligados al Kremlin en al menos 18 llamadas y correos electrónicos en los últimos siete meses de la carrera presidencial del 2016, dijeron a Reuters funcionarios estadounidenses familiarizados con los intercambios.

Los legisladores demócratas han estado pidiendo al Departamento de Justicia que nombre a un fiscal especial tras los informes del martes de que Comey escribió un memorando que documenta la solicitud de Trump de "dejar" la investigación sobre Flynn.

El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, negó con un tono desafiante el jueves haberse coludido con Rusia durante su campaña a la Casa Blanca o haberle pedido al destituido director del FBI James Comey que pusiera fin a una investigación sobre su exasesor de seguridad nacional.

Trump, quien hace más de una semana se ve envuelto en continuos escándalos tras despedir al exdirector del Buró Federal de Investigación (FBI) James Comey, expresó su deseo de que el asunto concluya rápidamente.

Además se ha desempeñado como director de la división criminal del Departamento de Justicia, así como procurador de San Francisco.

Previamente en declaraciones a un grupo de periodistas, el presidente había dicho que la designación del Consejo Especial "duele terriblemente a nuestro país, porque demuestra que somos un país dividido, revuelto, no unificado (...) Creo que es una cosa muy, muy negativa".

Tanto republicanos como demócratas aplaudieron el nombramiento de Mueller como fiscal especial del caso dada su probada independencia.

"Está claro que [los medios de EEUU] podrían haber solicitado esta información [sobre la conversación con Lavrov] a la Administración Trump". El muro fronterizo con México ha sido una de sus principales promesas durante su campaña electoral, pero ha encontrado notable oposición en el Congreso a la hora adjudicar fondos para su construcción.

El presidente Trump felicitó ayer a su homólogo colombiano, Juan Manuel Santos, por su "magnífico trabajo" en el acuerdo de paz con las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) y el Premio Nobel que ganó por ese motivo, al asegurar que esa labor no era "fácil".

"No hay nada más difícil que la paz".

Trump despidió sorpresivamente a Comey la semana pasada, lo que aumentó las críticas en su contra.

En la conferencia de prensa, Trump también rechazó las insinuaciones sobre cargos penales o un juicio político.
