Most Americans Want A Special Prosecutor For Trump-Russia Investigation

Most Americans Want A Special Prosecutor For Trump-Russia Investigation

The nation's capital has been aflame with one of those scandals that may be forgotten by next year or remembered for decades to come.

The questions about the Trump campaign's Russian ties arose early in the election and have continued to dog the Trump administration in the six weeks since he took office.

The spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin is distancing the Kremlin from President Donald Trump's claim that Barack Obama tapped his phones during the election campaign.

It's kind of insane how no one in the Trump camp, including Sessions, former DHS Michael Flynn, adviser Jared Kushner, and now Gordon, can remember meeting Kislyak until months after the fact. Given the times and Clinton's deeply flawed campaign, Trump probably would have won the election without their help - but Russia's efforts didn't hurt.

As Mr Kislyak himself said in November, taking questions at a Stanford University dinner: "I personally have been working in the United States for so long that I know nearly everybody". What Pelosi meant and failed to make clear is that she had never met with Kislyak privately.

Journalists Should Not Be Allowed To Use Anonymous Sources
He was then escorted out of the building and his pass was revoked, but, again, this guy loves attention. AUDIENCE MEMBER: You can do it! "Remember the lie? You can keep your doctor", Trump said.


Sessions is under fire for, depending on your perspective, either lying about or forgetting he had met with a Russian ambassador during his confirmation hearing. That was the right move, though we believe he still should, under oath, give the Judiciary Committee a full account of his encounters with Kislyak, and his staffers at the second meeting should do the same. That, actually, would have got him a laugh in the Senate committee. Hicks was responding to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov's assertion that "there were contacts" between Russians and Trump-whisperers. Evidence of a legal wiretap would mean a federal judge found probable cause to merit surveillance on campaign ties to Russian Federation.

Republicans rolled out their replacement plan Tuesday for what Trump has called the "complete and total disaster" of Obamacare, however it was met with widespread disapproval from both Democrats and Republicans. For instance, when the New York Times reported that he said he favored Japan and Saudi Arabia acquiring nuclear weapons, he tweeted, "How dishonest are they".

Actually, often as not, it's historically the wrong way to deal with something like this. If President Trump has proof of or knows for a fact that there was a wiretapping on Trump Tower that Obama was responsible for ordering, why would an investigation need to be launched?

Fifty-seven percent of respondents (including 76 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of independents) said they strongly or somewhat support Congress or the Justice Department assigning an outside investigator to probe communications between Trump associates and the Russian government.

Well into the second half of his nearly two-hour program Sunday night on the state-controlled Rossiya channel, commentator Dmitry Kiselyov blamed the mainstream US media for not allowing Trump even to talk about improving ties with Russian Federation.
