The House Trump-Russia Investigation Is Collapsing

On a day when the House Intelligence Committee was supposed to be questioning former Obama administration officials about Russian interference in the 2016 election, partisan warfare instead consumed the panel and intensified doubts about its ability to investigate the Kremlin campaign.

The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee says White House meddling in Congress' Russia investigations is not helping to lift the cloud of suspicion that hangs over the Trump administration.

We're still a long way from Republicans abandoning Trump on the Russian Federation scandal, and it may take a shocking development or two to get us from here to there.

Nunes would not name the source of the information, and his office said he did not intend to share it with other members of the committee.

Donald Trump's son-in-law and top aide Jared Kushner will appear before a Senate panel investigating Russian interference in the USA election, the White House said Monday.

His voice rising, Spicer told Ryan, "At some point you're going to have to report the facts".

Trump suggested late Monday that the House panel should investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton's dealings with Russian Federation.

The Post story alleges that the Trump administration blocked Yates from testifying, likely because of what she planned to say about Michael Flynn, the former Trump national security advisor who misled Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russia's ambassador.

This sets the stage for a showdown that will certainly contribute to the sense that the White House is engaging in a coverup, and may end with dramatic testimony from Yates.

Swalwell made the comment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday while discussing reports that Nunes was on White House grounds the day before he announced he had seen intelligence that showed members of President Trump's transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations.

"It wouldn't surprise me at all if there was a vigorous pushback on having her testify, among other things, about how long did [Trump] know Flynn had lied before he was willing to do anything about it?"

Fed minutes reveal debate over inflation and Trump

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee is asking whether an open congressional hearing on the Russian Federation probe was canceled because the White House did not want former acting Attorney General Sally Yates to testify and assert executive privilege. He pointed to a March 24 letter from Yates' attorney, in which the attorney says that if the White House does not respond by a deadline, Yates will consider that to mean that the White House is not trying to invoke executive privilege, which would limit what she could disclose.

Yates, an Obama appointee who was sacked in late January, also reportedly believed that the White House has made inaccurate statements about how it handled Flynn's firing. In an exchange with Yates's lawyer, Justice Department officials claimed that her work on behalf of the department may be protected by executive privilege, the broad legal protection against the disclosure of internal White House deliberations.

President Donald Trump fired Yates in January after she ordered Justice Department lawyers not to defend his first immigration order temporarily banning entry to United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world.

"It's irregular, to be benign about it, to have a lead investigator kibitzing with the people being investigated", said Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn. Should he recuse himself?
