President Donald Trump has reportedly had conversations with two witnesses who have testified before special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigators about the Russia election meddling probe. Mueller´s team are aware that Trump asked White House counsel Don McGahn and former chief of staff Reince Priebus about matters discussed with investigators, the New York Times reports. In one instance, Trump told an aide that McGahn should issue a statement denying a New York Times article in January that said the White House counsel told investigators the president had once asked him to fire Mueller. McGahn did not issue an statement. Sources told the NYT that

I heard from a guy who heard from another guy who spoke with a source close to the President that Mr Trump asked for his McDonalds order be supersized.

We are attempting to confirm this story with the person who took the order, but all attempts at the drive-up station result in the response "Do you want fries with that BigMac?"

We will continue to follow this developing story.

This is the cost of the Mueller investigation, there are people the President of the United States is not allowed to talk to until Mueller says. Is this useful for the country? I think not. hey thank you sessions. do your job. defend him even though you obviously do not care.

Trump “also asked Priebus how his interview with the special counsel investigators had gone and whether they had been ´nice´ .”

If that doesn’t prove collusion with Russia, nothing does. Just asking if his chief of staff was treated “nice” is straight out of the Putin playbook, and Mueller should demand that Trump turn himself into authoriities on Thursday morning,

I am so frustrated with this whole ordeal that I could spit nails. I don’t believe that firing Mueller would produce the result we want though. It would only cause more problems. Let him continue to enrage the American taxpayer with his endless witch hunt costing millions that produce nothing. Hopefully, the IG Report will serve as a catalyst to shut this fiasco down. If not, then the American people must demand an end to the wasteful spending on such a partisan travesty of justice. The perfect opportunity to do so will be the 2018 Mid-terms and then the 2020 Presidential Election.

Fire Rosenstein, fire Mueller and his team. They haven´t come up with any evidence of the charge of Trump / Russia collusion for which they were originally formed after over a year of investigations. So far all they have is a couple of entrapment cases where people supposedly lied to FBI political hacks, and supposedly a few Russian hackers which will never be extradited to the US. This whole investigation has been an embarrassment where the only positive outcome is now the American people know just how bad corruption within the DOJ and the FBI has become. I say fire the bunch of them. It´s not like the fake news media or the dumbocrats could possible be any more outraged and insane than they already are.

Well if Mueller admonished those “key” witnesses not to talk about their interviews with his staff, and the “key” witnesses did, some time later, talk about their interviews, it seems the problem, if there is one, would be between Mueller and the “key” witnesses. As those “key” witnesses could have easily told President Trump, or anyone else who asked, that they were prohibited by Mueller from talking about their interviews with Mueller or his staff.

Muleface is a menace for our great president and America. The Marxist Democrat forces are invested in him. They defeated Dubya with the mantra of Bush bad, Bush bad and are going for this strategy again. But Donaldus Magnus is having successes where Hussin Obama failed: 3% growth, tax cuts, ANWAR, Paris Agreement, mandate, Islamic State, military buildup, capital repatriation, Keystone and Dakota, Bear Ears, coal, steel, aluminum, LNG, 10 million barrels of American oil a day, lowest unemployment rates since 1969.

MOSCOW - Russia’s foreign ministry summoned Britain’s ambassador to the country, Laurie Bristow, for a meeting on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported, citing an unidentified ministry source. Russia is expected to expel British diplomats in retaliation for Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to kick out 23 Russians, as relations between the two countries crash to a post-Cold War low over an attack involving a military-grade nerve agent on English soil. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday Moscow had already decided on retaliatory measures, which she said Britain would be informed of in the near future.

A federal appeals court on Thursday voided the U.S. Department of Labor’s “fiduciary rule,” which had been adopted in 2016 under the Obama administration to curb conflicts of interest among providers of financial advice to Americans planning for retirement. The 2-1 decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is a major victory for business and financial services industry groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They had argued that the rule was too burdensome, and could make providing retirement advice too costly, with particular harm to lower-income people. The rule requires brokers to put their clients’ best interests first when

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project.
