Trump's Personal Lawyer Is Now Calling For End To Russia Probe

Trump Is Taking Out His Enemies And Turning Toward Robert Mueller

Critics cite a pattern of behavior such as reports of the President asking Comey for a loyalty pledge and asking the ex-director to stop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who is now indicted for making false statements to the FBI and is allegedly working with Robert Mueller on the Russia Probe.

He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department's senior career official, "I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately".

McCabe said in his statement that the inspector general's report was fast-tracked after he told the House Intelligence Committee he would corroborate Comey's accounts of conversations he had with the president. However, when reached later by the Washington Post, Dowd said that he was merely speaking for himself, walking back the implication that the president wanted the investigation to come to an end.

Sessions late Friday night fired McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire - a move that McCabe alleged was an attempt to "slander" him and undermine the ongoing special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign.

"Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy". At the time the investigation was launched in July 2015, Mr. McCabe was running the FBI's Washington, D.C., field office, which provided personnel and resources to the Clinton email probe.

Juan Martin del Potro , a runner-up in Indian Wells in 2013, battled a bad back to outlast Leonardo Mayer 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-3. Chung dropped to 15-6 on the season as he was appearing in his fifth quarter-final in six tournaments this year.

The watchdog office has concluded that Mr McCabe authorised Federal Bureau of Investigation officials to speak to a Wall Street Journal reporter for that story and that Mr McCabe had not been forthcoming with investigators.

McCabe has said he believed his firing was because he corroborated former FBI Director James Comey's claim that Trump tried to pressure him into killing a probe into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

The revelation came as one of the commander-in-chief's top attorneys John Dowd used McCabe's dismissal to call for the end to Mueller's criminal probe. "Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel's work".

President Trump later tweeted, "As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump Campaign", but said there was "tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State".

Hours after his firing, it was revealed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has detailed memos of his interactions with the President.

Mueller is investigating whether Trump's actions, including Comey's ouster, constitute obstruction of justice.

Trump applauded Sessions' decision early Saturday, calling it "a great day for democracy".

The firing threw new fuel on the fire raging over the investigation, with critics saying Trump might be planning to engineer Mueller's dismissal, potentially sparking a constitutional crisis.

McCabe says Sessions fired him as part of the Trump administration's "war on the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The story ultimately presented McCabe as a somewhat complicated figure - one who some FBI officials thought was standing in the way of the Clinton Foundation investigation, but who also seemed to be pushing back against Justice Department officials who did not believe there was a case to be made.

Dowd claims the ongoing investigation - which has already led to 22 indictments, including four former Trump campaign officials, and five plea deals - was "manufactured" by Comey, who ripped into Trump on Saturday for celebrating McCabe's firing.

After McCabe was questioned by investigators, he said he realized he needed to clarify some of his responses, so he "proactively reached out to those people to ensure that they clearly understood what my position was".
