Trump questions impartiality of Russia investigation chief Robert Mueller

Trump says Mueller, a former FBI director, is ‘good friends’ with James Comey and that his Russia investigation staff ‘are all Hillary Clinton supporters’

Donald Trump has questioned the impartiality of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the US election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

In an interview with Fox News aired Friday morning, Trump argued that Mueller, a former FBI director, is “good friends” with James Comey, Mueller’s successor at the spy agency whom Trump fired on 9 May. Trump later acknowledged he took this step with the Russia investigation in mind.

When George W Bush was president, Mueller and Comey worked together – Mueller as FBI director and Comey as deputy attorney general.

Trump also said that some of the staffers that Mueller has hired for his investigation “are all Hillary Clinton supporters”. US news reports say some of these staffers have made campaign contributions to Democratic candidates.".

Trump is so full of lies I don't think he would know the truth if it slapped him in his ugly face.
“Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest—and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure. It’s not your fault.” -According to Trump that is.

Donald Trump Jr. was told campaign meeting would be with ‘Russian government attorney,’ according to emails

"For months, President Trump and his aides have forcefully rejected any suggestion that they sought or received help from Russia to win last year’s election.

But the release Tuesday of a 2016 email exchange in which the president’s eldest son welcomed the assistance of a “Russian government attorney” offered the clearest contradiction of the White House’s denials — marking an escalation in the controversy that has engulfed the Trump presidency.

The email exchange was aimed at setting up a June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-connected lawyer who was said to have damaging information about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The meeting at Trump Tower was also attended by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

During the email exchange, Trump Jr. was told by an intermediary that the “high level” information he would be offered about Clinton was “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump” and would be “highly useful for your father.”

The younger Trump appeared to relish the opportunity. “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer,” he wrote back.".
