Deputy AG Rosenstein set for budget hearing Tuesday

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow hinted to George Stephanopoulos that he found some of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's behavior troublesome

Investigators are also considering the conversations Comey and the president had leading up to that point.

Donald Trump derided claims of collusion between Moscow and his associates as "phony" Thursday after reports the head of a probe into Russia's alleged election meddling is investigating him for obstructing justice.

The Washington Post previously reported that Trump also asked Rogers and Coats to push back against the FBI's investigation.

Earlier this week, reports emerged that Mueller had hired attorneys for his investigative team who had donated to Hillary Clinton in the past, and one in particular who had represented the Clinton Foundation in its effort to block Freedom of Information Act requests for e-mails on Clinton's private server.

"Did the president at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections?"

A tweet from Cyphert on Wednesday appeared to indicate he planned to sign a professional contract rather than attend UA. It's the second time Hayes has been drafted as Kansas City made him a 28th round pick in 2015.

During the Watergate investigation President Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was investigating a campaign of political spying and sabotage launched by a Nixon re-election committee. Brian Schatz about the scope of Sessions' recusal, Rosenstein said Sessions "actually does not know what we're investigating, and I'm not going to be talking about it publicly". Ruddy said Tuesday that he stands by his comments.

Under current Justice Department regulations, firing Mueller would have to be done by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, not the president- though those regulations could theoretically be set aside.

"I think he's weighing that option, " Ruddy said in an interview with the PBS NewsHour.

Mr Ruddy was at the White House on Monday to meet government aides, but did not speak to the president, Mr Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer said.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified last week that the president was not personally under investigation at the time of his firing on May 9.

Bank of England vote to hold interest rates, despite MPC split
The Committee voted unanimously to maintain government bond purchases at £435bn and corporate bond purchases at £10bn. Ian McCafferty, Michael Saunders and Kristin Forbes all voted to hike the interest rate by 25 basis points to 0.50%.

While he was strongly critical of some of Comey's testimony to a Senate panel, the president said last week that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief had vindicated him when he said that while he was at the agency, Trump was not the subject of the FBI's Russian Federation probe. "It is often erased in moments of anger, when simmering grievance boils over into rash action, exemplified by the firing of Mr. Comey after a weekend of brooding at his resort in Bedminster, N.J".

"I said that the President was indeed considering that".

A few days after the March 22 meeting, Trump spoke separately with Coats and Rogers and asked them to issue public statements to the effect that there was no evidence of coordination between his campaign and Russian Federation.

"I never said I spoke to the President", he added. He declined further comment.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said via email, "Chris speaks for himself".
