Top Democrats Vow to Intensify Trump Probes

Top Democrats Vow to Intensify Trump Probes

DONALD TRUMP rallied conservatives with a two-hour speech, claiming that Democrats wanted to create a "socialist nightmare" and accusing special counsel Robert Mueller of being out to get him.

Trump made his remarks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference after bringing to the stage Hayden Williams, a conservative activist who was punched at the University of California, Berkeley, last month while recruiting students for a conservative group.

Mr Mueller has not yet brought any public charges alleging a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and Russian Federation, and the investigation continues.

With the Mueller investigation reportedly coming to an end, Trump criticized the probe as a "collusion delusion" and said that political foes were trying to take him out with "bullshit".

Also asked whether it was a violation of the emoluments clause in the Constitution for Trump to take to Twitter on Saturday to promote one of his money-losing Scottish golf courses, Nadler replied, "it certainly seems to be".

"He's been talking for nearly two hours, one of the longest speeches I've ever heard the president make, certainly longer than the rallies I have been to", Gallacher said.

Mr. Nadler, meanwhile, said his goal with the 81 document requests is to create a public record on obstruction of justice, corruption and "abuses of power" on the part of the president and his team. After his Meeting with the Russian President in Helsinki last July, he even took away the interpreter of the USA foreign your notes. "We don't have the facts yet, but we're going to initiate proper investigations".

In January, when he became chairman of the powerful Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, he put the billionaire president back in his sights. But the evidence so far shows that a broad range of Trump associates had Russia-related contacts during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition period, and several lied about the communications. "If you look at that first speech, that was very innocent compared to what's happening", Trump said.

Because computer hacking is clearly a federal crime, any Trump campaign official who assented to and encouraged the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers in 2016 could be liable for the crime of conspiracy.

"These people are sick!"

Inside the Touchdown Tavern in the presidential battleground state of Wisconsin, voter Aric Nowicki worries over how the impending release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation could affect the 2020 election for president.

"I love Otto", Trump said, but added he was trying to maintain "a delicate balance" with the DPRK as he attempts to coax them into giving up their nuclear program. Mr. Trump has repeatedly slammed the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and insisted there was "NO COLLUSION" with Russian Federation.

"I said, 'Melania, I'm doing something today, I'm doing it because it really has to be done. he's a bad, bad guy", Trump said, arguing that he thought Democrats would welcome the move given their anger at Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation. Nadler has helped lead the charge to pressure the Justice Department to release the full report to the public. "Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee".

The Brooklyn native, at 71 - one year younger than his White House nemesis - went into battle in the 1980s against Trump's NY real estate projects as a state assemblyman, and since then the two have never made up.
