Trump takes a lap of honour, hammers Democrats for the persecution of the Russian-fixing investigation; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.
To check with President Trump, in the “counter-punch” phase of the Russia-investigation, allies urge him to investigate two ways-each with its own potential payoffs and pitfalls –, the origins of the probe and hold top justice Department officials responsible for the alleged misconduct.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced the completion of its investigation last week, the transfer of its more than 300-page report to the Ministry of justice for review. Attorney General Bill Barr published a four-page summary of the Mueller report, Sunday, stating the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign, and Russia, while the 2016 presidential elections, despite numerous offers of the Kremlin-linked persons.
MORE THAN HALF OF AMERICANS BELIEVE MUELLER PROBE WAS FAIR, ARE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS: SURVEY
This week, trump allies are seizing on the results of the almost two-year-long investigation and presentation of options for the President to pivot to uncover alleged wrongdoing at the start of the probe.
Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., announced a far-reaching investigation “the other side”, focusing on alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of abuse and the diffuse origins of the Russia-investigation to the FBI. He requested them to appoint for Barr to review a new special counsel the problems.
“I would like to find someone like a Mr. Miller, that you can see what is going on tickets with the FISA option, the counter-espionage investigation,” Graham said on Monday. “There are some people that are never going to accept the Müller report, but by any reasonable standard, Mueller thoroughly investigated, the Trump campaign. You can’t say that about the other side of the story.”
Graham added that “due to the emotional nature of this,” he hoped that the attorney General would “appoint someone outside of the current system to look at these allegations, someone we all trust, and let them do what is done to Müller,” he said, already calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate since 2017, “whether or not a counterintelligence investigation was opened as a back door to spy on the Trump campaign.”
Graham said he wants answers to, how much money the Democrats paid research company, Fusion GPS Commission the dossier, or if the content of the dossier, which ever have been checked. The Republicans have also examined long, the decision to monitor the former trump adviser to Carter’s side in 2016, based on a dossier of allegations. Page, although they are monitored by the FBI and investigated, while Mueller to investigate, has never been accused of a crime.
Sources told Fox News this week, during a lunch with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill this week, the President was enthusiastic about the idea of the appointment of the new special counsel, and seemed to be excited about Graham’s “deep-dive” investigation.
The former senior Ministry of justice official, James-Loyal, but, told Fox News that, while these activities earn “a hard second look,” they “should not be criminal necessarily generate recommendations.”
“If we don’t want to be a politicized FBI and Department of justice, then someone, whether it’s Loyal to the Secretary-General or the inspector General or the Congress, or anyone else, should try to hard on some of these things disturbing,” now with Ifrah Law, told Fox News. “I didn’t make up the complete faith in the inspector general’s office, the kinds of decisions that may need to be made, but I’m not fond of the idea, with endless special, the examination of the last special counsel advises.”
TRUMP RECEPTIVE TO GRAHAM’S CALL FOR THE 2. TO CHECK THE SPECIAL COUNSEL, RUSSIA PROBE THE ORIGIN, THE SOURCE SAYS
But the appointment of a second special counsel is present only one avenue Republicans.
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who, while the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee during the last Congress probed the alleged FISA abuse, said this week that he is considering the issue of criminal-recommendations for top justice Department and FBI officials involved, the origins of the Russia-investigation “by the end of next week.”
Nunes, Trump said recently, perhaps one day be praised as a “great American hero” for his work on the Intelligence Committee, said that he would go after “the people, the Congress, perjury, criminal conspiracy, lied to,” and hoped “as much publicity as possible.”
“The FBI and DOJ, you should not use be able to, counter-intelligence functions, which are used to target terrorists and other bad guys around the globe against the political parties,” Nunes said this week on “The story”. “Republicans and Democrats agree on political opposition should be should be to research for a candidate not to be used to the nation’s top spy-in functions used in violation of the political parties.”

Justice Department inspector General Michael Horowitz is currently investigating alleged misconduct with respect to FISA warrants delivered by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The status of the investigation, or a timeline of when the assessment will be completed is unclear.
In The Meantime, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is also pushing for transparency in the matter. This week, Paul, a change that would show what role, if any, former President Barack Obama played in the origin of the Trump-Russia-investigation.
To discover “what we need, and we do not know, nor was President Obama involved? This was done for party political purposes? This was done in order to try for the election of Hillary Clinton?” Paul asked in the Senate this week.
