Trump Calls John Kelly 'Chief'

Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort tipped off authorities to a meeting between between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer during the presidential campaign.

Manafort was forced to quit the campaign in August after the publication of investigative reports about his consulting work for a Ukrainian political party with ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The DOJ and several congressional committees are investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Committee officials also told CNN that Grassley, the chairman of the committee, and Feinstein, the top Democrat on the panel, were able to review the memos that Comey wrote after his interactions with Trump, including his allegations that Trump urged him to back away from investigating Flynn and sought loyalty from the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Mr Manafort's spokesman Jason Maloni confirmed on Wednesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at one of Mr Manafort's homes.

"I thought it was a very, very strong signal, or whatever".

"I haven't given it any thought", Mr Trump told reporters.

But the Frenchman says that the 23-year-old will play for Arsenal next season as he is part of his plans. The Blues have launched a £35m bid to get him, and Oxlade-Chamberlain is interested in making the move.

For someone who claims innocence, President Trump is sure acting guilty. "I did not want to make her relive this moment over and over again", Andrea Swift said. I think that's pretty tough stuff, ' Trump said. The "Red Wedding" is a scene in the TV show where a bloody-spattering massacre takes place - which is similar to the axing of former White House staffers, according to Gore.

Kevin Downing, a former official in the Department of Justice known for representing clients and firms facing complex financial investigations, will be Manafort's new principal attorney, Politico reported on Thursday.

Manafort has been a subject of a longstanding FBI investigation into his foreign dealings.

The special counsel investigation had something of a head start in investigating Manafort, as Mueller assumed control of several pre-existing probes into the former campaign chairman's business activities and record-keeping.

"I have not, but to do that early in the morning, whether or not it was appropriate you'd have to ask them", he said.

The request for documents, which was described to CNN, was returned with thousands of pages relating to Flynn and his consulting firm. In addition to ratting out Trump Jr., and by extension, Trump adviser-in-law Jared Kushner, Manafort turned over relevant 300 documents.
