Arrest expected over claim Russian Federation helped Donald Trump win United States election

Arrest expected over claim Russian Federation helped Donald Trump win United States election

President Donald Trump expressed his feelings about Obamacare, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, the Fusion GPS dossier, tax cuts and most notably the Mueller investigation in a wide-ranging Sunday morning tweet storm.

The President fired off a series of furious tweets on Sunday, insisting the real story was alleged links between Russian Federation and Mrs Clinton, tweeting to his 41 million followers that the "facts are pouring out".

That definition - "coordination" - would seem to make the Democrats ripe for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate, ex-Trump aides say.

Republicans in Congress also are investigating whether officials in former President Barack Obama's administration spied on Trump's campaign and whether Russians helped pay for a dossier on Trump commissioned by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm. "There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

And in an almost-Halloween-themed tweet, Trump claimed that the investigation only focused on collusion allegations between Trump and Russian Federation because Democrats were using "this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics". The president complained late last week that the news media have ignored the uranium deal while focusing on whether any of his campaign aides colluded with Russian Federation.

"We ought to instead focus on the outrage that the Russians meddled in our elections", said Portman, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

All the new investigations address longstanding Trump grievances. Fusion had hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to conduct the research.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC may have violated campaign finance laws in funding the Russian Federation dossier, according to an FEC complaint filed on October 25 by Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan nonprofit on election laws.

Markelle Fultz Out Indefinitely
There has been confusion as to whether Fultz's shooting tweak caused the injury or began because of the injury. Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely with soreness in his right shoulder.

Switch Update Adds Video Capture
Lastly, the News channel has been a new look and a new feature that will add or remove a particular channel's content instantly. With firmware 4.0.0, the ability for (limited) video capture and transferring data to another Switch console is now possible.

Boy, 10, leads mum, police on wild 160km/h pursuit in family auto
Dash camera footage from the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows the Cleveland boy drive into the opposing lane of the Ohio Turnpike. Police said he only stopped during that incident because the vehicle got three flat tires. "He's a good driver".

He said: "Contrary to what many have suggested, the President's comments today are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate".

Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., the ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday that "a lot" of the information in the dossier has been corroborated.

And he was returning to questions about Clinton's use of a private email server and how former FBI Director James Comey handled an investigation into the matter, which was closed with no charges being filed.

Levy also alleges that when Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch and executive Thomas Catan appeared before the Committee last week, the fact that they had pleaded the Fifth Amendment to every question was leaked to outlets including Fox News-and the information could only have come from committee members or staff.

On the other hand, it has emerged that the Clinton Foundation made millions from the Russian acquisition of the Uranium One company, which holds rights to 20 percent of US uranium, while Russia was running a campaign of bribery and extortion around the deal; and that several major figures in the Obama administration may have played a role in either supporting it or concealing it from the public.

Democratic lawmakers mostly stayed out of the Sunday fray after a week in which Clinton's 2016 campaign came under fresh scrutiny.

Marc Elias, a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, hired the research firm in the spring of 2016. The New York Times has not confirmed that charges have been approved.
