Pittsburgh police readying for 'large scale protest' if Trump fires Mueller

On Thursday, Manafort's attorney Kevin Downing is expected to tell U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson during a hearing in Washington that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's order in May 2017 appointing Mueller was overly broad, and that Mueller's case falls outside the boundaries of what he was permitted to investigate.

The revelations to Trump helped tamp down the president's desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller.

This is a developing story; check back for updates. He called the raid "an attack on our country".

Trump's most peculiar recent personnel move-part of an ever-growing list of dismissals-was to fire David Shulkin as head of the Veterans Administration, a Leviathan of an agency, and nominate his personal physician for the job.

While Rosenstein and Mueller's communication about the Russian Federation probe may help the special counsel's office defend its criminal case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Mueller's team is also indirectly pushing back against the President and Republicans' assertions that the investigation is rogue and corrupt.

Speculation surrounding a potential firing of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is swirling in Pittsburgh this week, following a leaked email from Pittsburgh Police's Major Crimes Commander Victor Joseph to his detectives. A spokesperson for Manafort declined to comment. It doesn't claim to know what the President will do. It doesn't say people can't lawfully assemble ...

Earlier Thursday, Bloomberg reported that Rosenstein told Trump that he was not being targeted in the wider Mueller probe. All of Colorado's representatives should also publicly affirm that, should President Trump interfere with the investigation, they will continue to support the investigation by reinstating Mueller or continuing the investigation in Congress. "Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter)".

At week's end, a memoir by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, whose firing by Trump led to Mueller's appointment, began to leak, also arousing Trump's ire.

"It's not to say that James Comey is a saint or that Rod Rosenstein has never made a mistake in his life, it's to say that I don't think anyone can dispute that these men are people who have devoted their lives and their careers to upholding the law". "That's my responsibility as the majority leader". So we want to get the investigation over with, done with.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is being investigated as a suspected "back channel" between the campaign and Russian Federation, a Justice Department lawyer told a judge on Thursday.

"They've been saying I'm going to get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months, and they're still here".
