Trump Attacks the Russia Investigation in CPAC Speech

In a wide-ranging speech on Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland, he mocked Democrats for their framework to combat climate change and said House lawmakers pushing to expand their investigations of him are "sick".

As Nadler explained, "Tomorrow we will be issuing document requests from over 60 different people from the White House, to the Department of Justice, Donald Trump Jr., Allen Weisselberg to begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power". Schiff said the investigation will include "the scope and scale" of Russian intervention in the 2016 presidential election, the "extent of any links and/or coordination" between Russians and Trump's associates, whether foreign actors have sought to hold leverage over Trump or his family and associates, and whether anyone has sought to obstruct any of the relevant investigations.

US President Donald Trump has launched a furious attack on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and on his critics at a conservative summit.

"I am an innocent man being persecuted by some very bad, conflicted people in a Witch Hunt that is illegal & should never have been allowed to start", he added.

Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen called him a "racist", "conman" and a "cheat" in a congressional hearing.

Trump also touched on various other topics, from Robert Mueller's investigation to America's recent economic successes, the border wall situation, and trade negotiations with China.

McCarthy's comments follow dozens of document requests from the House Judiciary Committee, which Nadler now chairs, to persons connected to the White House. "If we went through every person who had this authority before, I'll guarantee you other people had concerns raised with them".

Trump also argued that Mueller was compromised due to his prior interest in being Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director after Trump fired James Comey, and reiterated an allegation that Mueller and Comey are "best friends". "My job", Nadler said, "is to protect the rule of law".

In addition to accepting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition of anti-Semitism , which the U.S. They've also used Omar's comments and views on Israel to paint the entire Democratic party as extreme.

Trump's comment is often cited by his critics as an instance in which his campaign colluded in plain sight with the Russian election meddling effort.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May 2017 to take over the Russian Federation investigation after Trump fired Comey, whose agency had led the probe initially.

Chairmen of the House Oversight, Foreign Affairs and intelligence committees said that in addition to the translators, they want to talk with anyone who was briefed - orally or in writing - about Trump-Putin meetings, and they also demanded to see all documents stemming from the talks.

Sixty-four percent of USA voters say they believe Donald Trump did something illegal before he was elected president, while 24 percent believe he did not, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. "The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the president".

Trump clearly delighted in the passion of the conservative audience, pointing to onlookers and applauding as Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." blared on the speakers.

"The whole thing's ridiculous", Ernstmeyer said.

Mueller's report could be turned over to Attorney General William Barr in the coming days, but how much of it will be made public is uncertain.

Meanwhile in Vietnam, a high-stakes second summit between Trump and Kim broke up in disarray Thursday, without even a joint statement, after the pair failed to reach an agreement on walking back Pyongyang's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
