Trump on firing Mueller or Rosenstein: 'They're still here'
Senate leader appears to kill special counsel protection bill's chances

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Trump last week that the president is not a target in the Michael Cohen investigation, and that the investigation is focused exclusively on Cohen, the president's personal attorney, a source familiar with the probe told Fox News on Thursday.

The source also said the Cohen investigation, together with the abrupt departure of John Dowd from Trump's legal team, slowed, but did not halt talks about Trump sitting down for an interview with Mueller. The information that led to these raids stemmed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who reportedly came across it and forwarded it to federal authorities, as it did not pertain to his probe into whether there was collusion between the Trump camp and the Russians in 2016.

'And we have to get back to business with negotiating with this gentleman and plenty of others, ' Trump added, nodding toward Abe, who was sharing the stage.

What came next was a word salad that amounted to a on-the-fly mashup of Trump's greatest hits when it comes to the ongoing Russian Federation probe.

Pittsburgh Bureau of Police has ordered its plainclothes detectives to bring full uniform and riot gear to work starting Thursday, "until further notice". "This would result in a large protest within 24 hours of the firing", the emails states.

His boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, recused himself from investigating matters related to the presidential campaign. "We may be needed to assist in the event that there is a large-scale protest", an internal e-mail warned.

Dreeben on Thursday defended that language in the original appointment order, saying it was meant "to reflect the fact that investigations are naturally going to move forward".

Two prominent House Republicans met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein this week over the pace of DOJ document production to Congress, the latest example of friction between congressional Republicans and senior Justice Department officials.

Mueller is investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

After months of negotiations over a possible bill to protect Mueller from getting fired by Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday that such legislation is "unnecessary". "So we want to get the investigation over with, done with".

"It's not to say that James Comey is a saint or that Rod Rosenstein has never made a mistake in his life, it's to say that I don't think anyone can dispute that these men are people who have devoted their lives and their careers to upholding the law".
