Trump Legal Team Should Be Allowed to Correct Mueller's Final Report - Giuliani

On May 11, 2017, Trump told NBC, "when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".

Rather than call the Times report "fake news", as he has with so many other anonymously sourced Times reports, Trump used it to again claim that he was justified in getting rid of Comey.

Law enforcement officials have previously confirmed that after the firing the FBI opened an investigation into whether the action constituted obstruction of justice.

Trump went on to insist he has been "FAR tougher on Russia" than his last three White House predecessors-"maybe tougher than any other president".

"The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has always been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice".

Mr Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told the Times that he had no knowledge of the inquiry. Ultimately, then-acting FBI Director McCabe took the extraordinary step of opening an obstruction of justice investigation even before Mueller was appointed, sources told CNN. Trump accused Federal Bureau of Investigation special counsel Bob Mueller and the Democrats of having "NO interest in going after the Real Collusion (and much more) by Crooked Hillary Clinton, her Campaign, and the Democratic National Committee".

Trump's detractors have taken this statement as proof that he fired Comey out of anger over the Russian Federation investigation.

The move follows plans announced a year ago to reduce white-collar jobs across the company's global business. Ford posted a loss of €245 million loss before interest and taxes in the third quarter.

The Times says it is unclear whether Mr Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and views it as a stain on the legitimacy of his presidency.

According to Trump, "the FBI was in complete turmoil ... because of Comey's poor leadership" and the way he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server to send some government emails.

Giuliani, a lawyer for the president, was quoted by the Times as saying that the investigation seems to have gone nowhere.

President Donald Trump leads a roundtable discussion on border security with local leaders on Friday in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington.

"A national security threat", he repeated for emphasis. The Times previously reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr. Mueller rather than keeping the Russian Federation probe in-house, talked of wearing a wire when he met with the president.

The context was this: two weeks after Mr. Strzok opened an investigation on July 31, 2016, into the Trump campaign on suspicion of colluding with Moscow, he messaged Ms. Page that, "there is no way he gets electedbut I'm afraid we can't take that risk".
