Trump Called for Acting FBI Director's Firing Hours After Manafort FBI Raid

After successfully irritating President Trump earlier this week, CT senator Richard Blumenthal is now taking aim at Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

The former campaign manager for President Trump is a central figure in Robert Mueller's investigation over claims that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

Donald Trump Jr. has turned over 250 pages of records to a Senate panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Given his shadowy business and political dealings with pro-Russia elements coupled with his proximity to Trump during the campaign, the fact that he's under investigation is unsurprising. That the investigation isn't a "Witch Hunt" and that Trump and the survival of his presidency are in serious legal jeopardy. That's what sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni declined to comment on this story and an earlier Politico report Thursday that first discussed Yohai being approached about cooperation.

"I haven't given it any thought.I've been reading about it from you people".

In an email sent to a Wall Street Journal reporter, Trump's lead defense lawyer, John Dowd, slammed the raid as a "gross abuse" conducted only for "shock value".

"It is what it is", Trump said of his relationship with Sessions.

"I call it 'climbing the ladder, ' " Jeffress said. "I have not heard any statement from Mueller's team to the media that those actions had any relation to my meeting with the son of the one of several then-[US presidential] Republican candidates", Veselnitskaya said. "I was very, very surprised to see it", Trump said in remarks from Bedminster, N.J., where he is vacationing.

While following the money trail can uncover critical clues in any white-collar crime investigation, Trump recently warned that any digging into his finances would be a violation of Mueller's mandate.

"If you want to get to the roots of collusion, to the roots of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation, they don't start with Putin, and certainly don't start with the 2016 campaign", Gunitsky said. The "Red Wedding" is a scene in the TV show where a bloody-spattering massacre takes place - which is similar to the axing of former White House staffers, according to Gore.

The request for documents, which was described to CNN, was returned with thousands of pages relating to Flynn and his consulting firm. Manafort has already given about 300 documents to Congress.
