The special counsel leading the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election is now expanding the scope of its investigation to examine whether President Trump obstructed justice, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is demanding that Daniel Richman, a Columbia Law School professor and friend of former FBI Director James Comey, turn over copies of official memos he leaked the to press last month.
The country watched as former-FBI Director James B. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his interactions with President Trump and whether or not the president attempted to impede or end the investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 election.
In his testimony, Comey called Trump a liar and said he started writing detailed memos about his interactions with the president because he did not believe Mr. Trump would be honest.
The FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State dogged her presidential campaign since the very beginning. President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch promised there would be no intervention in regards to the FBI’s decision on whether to recommend charges.
A majority of Americans say they disapprove of the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information in emails while she was secretary of State, according to a new poll.
