Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham is conducting his own probe into how the Russia investigations were initiated.
WASHINGTON — Paul Manafort’s indictment on Monday widened a partisan split, with Democrats, including Sen. Richard Blumenthal, calling for an increased pace of investigation and added protections for special counsel Robert Mueller and Republicans demanding equal effort be spent on a probe of ties between Democrats and the Russians.
Wray, 50, told senators on the Judiciary panel that he would quit if Trump asked him to do anything illegal. He also said he did not consider special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether there were Russian ties to the Trump campaign “a witch hunt.”
WASHINGTON – Rep. Jim Himes’ job as a minority member of the House Intelligence Committee usually wasn’t a path to the political spotlight – but all that changed with the election of Donald Trump and allegations his campaign may have colluded with the Russians to influence U.S. elections.
Blumenthal said Trump’s angry tweets were an attempt to intimidate a newly appointed prosecutor who will investigate whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia’s attempt to influence the U.S. elections.
