White House officials: Russian election meddling is happening again

US President Donald Trump yesterday said Attorney General Jeff Sessions should terminate the investigation into Russian election interference "right now" and called the prosecution of his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort "a hoax".

This is a awful situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further.

Trump also tweeted Wednesday that Sessions needs to stop the "Rigged Witch Hunt" against him.

It's Trump's biggest public ultimatum yet to Sessions, who infuriated Trump by recusing himself from any probes involving the 2016 election due to his public support of Trump at the time... and after he came under fire for not revealing meetings he had with the Russian ambassador. Sessions cited his role as a senior adviser to Trump's presidential campaign and appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to oversee the investigation.

The joint appearance by Coats, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, national security advisor John Bolton, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone comes as the administration faces criticism over its efforts to deal with election interference and continuing questions over how seriously President Trump takes the threat. "This is an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight".

"Who is the president who said we are going to drive down the cost of energy and make the United States the most efficient oil exporter in the world...?"

Trump said the charges against Manafort "have nothing to do with Collusion". "Now, if only it was actually backed up by anything the president has said or done on Russian Federation".

Meyer's extension has a Title IX clause that requires him to report violations of Ohio State's sexual misconduct policy. The first impact that comes to mind is the non-conference game between Ohio State and the TCU Horned Frogs.

News accounts a year ago, however, said that Sessions had rebuffed Trump's earlier demands to retake control of the investigation. "We know there are others who have the capability and may be considering influence activities".

Mr Manafort's charges stem from his consulting work in the Ukraine, in which he allegedly received millions of dollars that he failed to report to the USA government.

Pastor Darrell Scott of Cleveland, co-founder of Mr. Trump's National Diversity Coalition, is one of several dozen inner-city faith leaders working with the White House on prison reform and other initiatives to help urban America.

Although scant on details, the collective warning runs counter to Trump's repeated downplaying of Russian interference in his election victory. Trump tweets that Manafort "He worked for me for a very short time".

"These old charges have nothing to do with Collusion - a Hoax!"

"It would be far better if the President refrained from commenting and for Mr. Mueller to continue his investigation, which so far already has 30 indictments, including Russian nationalists", she said on Capitol Hill.

The American firebrand claimed there has been no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation and therefore contradicted his own intelligence agencies.
