Deputy AG Rosenstein 'frustratingly cautious' in House briefing


"I respect the decision, " the president said, "but this entire thing has been a witch hunt".

The US Justice Department has appointed Robert Mueller to lead the investigation into connections between Trump's election campaign and the Russian government.

The memo, on the heels of Trump's abrupt firing of Comey last week, fueled accusations by lawmakers of possible obstruction of justice and calls for an independent prosecutor to oversee the FBI's ongoing counterintelligence probe into possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation during the presidential campaign. Republicans on Capitol Hill hoped the same, reasoning that the appointment of a special counsel could free them to work on a major tax overhaul - and other matters - without constant distractions.

Hurd also disagreed with the President's comments on Thursday that the appointment of a special counsel "hurts our country". Trump wrote in Twitter postings on Thursday morning.

He did not offer any evidence of such acts in his reference to former Democratic President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump fired off a tweet on Thursday criticizing the appointment of a special counsel to investigate allegations his campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election, tweeting: "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special "councel" appointed!"

Kushner called Lockheed CEO about $100B Saudi arms deal
Trump has tasked Kushner with brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. Meanwhile, Trump is set to leave Friday for his first foreign trip since assuming office.

"This is a truth hunt", said Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar. However the White House said at midday that there would be no announcement Friday.

Q. Could Trump fire Mueller?

"Director Comey was very unpopular with most people, " Trump said during a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manual Santos.

Rosenstein fielded questions in the closed session for more than an hour, but many senators left the briefing unsatisfied.

In closed-door meetings with lawmakers on Thursday and Friday, Rosenstein said he wrote the memo after Trump told him one day before the May 9 firing that he wanted to dismiss Comey.

Rosenstein apparently did not address reports that Trump had tried to interfere in the case by asking then-FBI Director James Comey to shut down the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. He has already put a hold on Trump's nomination of Sigal Mandelker to the position of under secretary of the Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence until Treasury hands over all documents related to financial dealings between Russia, Trump and Trump associates.

GST Council meet: No decision on tax on gold
Over the next two days, the council will fit most of the goods and services in either 5, 12, 18 or 28 per cent tax bracket. On April 6, Parliament passed four legislations, paving the way for the rollout of the GST from July.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told Congress Friday he stands by a memo he wrote bluntly criticizing Comey.

Asked if Mueller's appointment would preempt his own request for Comey information, the Iowa Republican replied, "I don't know".

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said Mueller was a "straight shooter" who will "bring some normalcy to this process". However, Democrats have said the dismissal was because Comey was leading the probe into Russia's alleged election meddling, and have called for an independent investigation.

Host Anderson Cooper and Dershowitz's fellow panelists Jeffrey Toobin and Carl Bernstein argued the investigation should proceed, but Dershowitz insisted there wasn't a criminal statute about what Trump and his campaign have been accused.

"He (Rosenstein) knew the day before, " said Sen.

Asked about possible obstruction of justice, Republican House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters the special counsel would "follow the facts where ever they may lead" and that "it is premature to prejudge anything at this point".
