Pence Says He's `Fully Cooperating' With Mueller's Russia Probe

Share

A House Republican who has repeatedly characterized the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation - and the FBI more broadly - as biased and politically motivated indicated on Wednesday that he had spoken with the White House about it.

The most vocal criticisms came last week from some Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee who seized on Mueller's dismissal of senior Federal Bureau of Investigation counter-intelligence agent Peter Strzok earlier this summer for variously describing the president as an "idiot" in pre-election communications with colleague Lisa Page.

Trump has said he's not seeking Mueller's ouster.

Sen. Mark Warner, Senate Intelligence Committee ranking member, speaks to the media about a September 28 committee staff members meeting with two Twitter officials in Washington, DC.

Storm in southern Philippines leaves at least 50 dead
In 2013, super typhoon Haiyan killed almost 8,000 people and left 200,000 families homeless. Last week, 46 people were killed in the central Philippines when a typhoon hit.

If there was nothing to be afraid of, you can be sure the investigation would be cheered on by Trump, who would be looking forward to broadcasting a clean bill of health to the public.

During a CNN interview on Wednesday evening, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) admitted that he's discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign with the White House.

When asked if crossing his red line was an impeachable offense, Warner said: "My hope is that other members will echo the call I made on both sides of the aisle, and I hope that the President will adhere to what he's said recently that he has no intentions". "It also has the potential to provoke a constitutional crisis".

'Any attempt by this President to remove special counsel Mueller from his position or to pardon key witnesses in any effort to shield them from accountability or shut down the investigation would be a gross abuse of power and a flagrant violation of executive branch responsibilities and authorities, ' Warner told 'These truly are red lines and simply can not allow them to be crossed'.

MS Dhoni's bullet shot has KL Rahul down on all four
Determined to start the T20I series on a positive note, India opted to entrust the responsibility on the experienced players. But Dhoni and Pandey finished off the innings with a flurry of fours and sixes as India got 66 runs in the last five overs.

Warner called for Congress to make clear to the president that firing Mueller would have 'immediate and significant consequences'.

Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell told Business Insider earlier this year that Nunes' shadow investigations risked compromising the House panel's probe. Russian Federation denies meddling in the 2016 USA election and Trump has denied any collusion. "If that's true, why then did he come out, again, and open up the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, and never even tell us before the election about the investigation into alleged Trump collusion?"

Warner cited a recent Fox News report that featured senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway saying the "fix was in" against Trump and that included an on-screen graphic that said "Coup in America?"
