Democrats want to interview Ivanka Trump in Russian Federation investigation

As discussions continue about whether President Donald Trump will sit down for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, FBI investigators have yet to request an interview with Vice President Mike Pence, a person familiar with the situation told NBC News.

Later, top Obama officials got intelligence reporting about contacts between retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Trump's top national security aide, and Russia's then-ambassador to the U.S. As Flynn later admitted in court documents when he pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he and the ambassador discussed Flynn's request for Moscow not to retaliate against the punitive measures that President Barack Obama imposed in retaliation for the election interference.

WaPo: "Democrats are striking out on their own this week over all but one of the congressional investigations into Russian meddling, independently releasing reports and transcripts, and attacking Republicans they accuse of intentionally undermining active probes in deference to President Trump".

Later on Wednesday, a Fox News reporter asked if Trump be willing to meet with special counsel Robert Mueller, who will reportedly seek an interview. "I mean certainly we'll see what happens - when they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".

Several Republican members of the House Intelligence panel have said in recent weeks they are eager to end the Russian Federation investigation and issue a report, claiming they have almost exhausted the roster of individuals they could interview.

Mr Trump's words differed from what he said at a news conference in June, shortly after fired FBI Director James Comey had told Congress that Mr Trump asked him for a pledge of loyalty.

"You can't say things that are false, knowingly false, and be able to smile as money pours into your bank account", Trump said.

That has angered Democrats, who say those probes are distractions from the Russian Federation investigations.

But the president's allies on Capitol Hill, along with supporters ranging from lawyers on the Trump team to friends, are urging Trump to avoid potential political and legal jeopardy by sitting down for an interview, CNN reported.


Schiff noted that the choice of witnesses is determined by panel Republicans - who control the committee - some of whom he accused of trying to stall, or possibly shut down, the investigation, possibly to distract from the investigation of Trump. She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen.

"It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election", Trump commented, adding: "I'll speak to attorneys".

One can't conjure up a scenario whereby Mueller misses the opportunity to ask President Trump questions.

The Point: Trump is obsessed and irritated by the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and the questions he continues to get about them.

Whether Trump will have to answer those questions in front of a grand jury, during a video deposition at the White House, or in a written format, and whether a subpoena will be required to compel cooperation, will be negotiated between Mueller's team and Trump's lawyers.

In fact, Simpson told the Judiciary Committee that when Steele was interviewed by FBI officials in Rome in September 2016, the bureau signaled they had obtained some of the information he had collected prior to him even writing the first memo in his dossier. "We haven't closed any doors", the source said.

Feinstein faces a primary from California state Senate leader Kevin de Leon. I can only say this: There was absolutely no collusion.

Two Trump campaign aides - including campaign manager Paul Manafort - have been indicted in the investigation.

Bannon was also the recipient of an email Donald Trump Jr. sent to a group of senior Trump campaign officials notifying them that WikiLeaks had reached out, according to The Atlantic.
