The Russia investigation ramps up

In West Virginia, Trump concluded a five-minute riff on Russian Federation with a caustic jab at Democrats who allege that he had an unfair leg up - from a USA enemy - to defeat Clinton in last year's presidential election.

He imitated the president, joking, "So handsome, not like one of those dump juries". It will look into links between the Trump team and Russian Federation to influence the White House election and whether there has been any subsequent attempt to obstruct justice.

"They can't beat us at the voting booths so they are trying to cheat you out of the future and the future that you want", the President told the crowd, during a vintage performance in the heart of Trump country, Huntington, West Virginia.

Before Mr. Mueller was appointed to oversee the Russian Federation probe, a grand jury was assembled in Alexandria, Virginia to consider evidence against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Members of Congress from both parties have expressed concern that Trump might dismiss Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to determine whether there was collusion between his 2016 presidential campaign and Moscow.

Step back and what's clear is that no one - not Kelly, not Trump lawyer Ty Cobb, not anyone - is going to convince the president to lay off the Russian Federation rhetoric.

The NBC5 story and interview with the couple aired January 2015 , at the start of Polito's primary booking season. But when she contacted them days later she found out they had already called several news organisations.

Ty Cobb, special counsel to Trump, said he was not aware that Mueller had started using a new grand jury.

The president, who remains agitated over the investigation into allegations of coordination between his campaign associates and Russian government officials, said Democrats have a decision to make.

While the impaneling of a grand jury does not necessarily mean that Mueller will ultimately seek any indictments, it does allow prosecutors to issue subpoenas for important documents and evidence from President Donald Trump and his team.

Congressman Jimmy Gomez said the reports of Mueller impanelling a grand jury demonstrates that there are serious questions about foreign adversaries trying to gain influence through the financial interests of the United States president, his family members, and other associates. He said prosecutors should instead focus on finding Hillary Clinton's deleted emails. "It can't be used for a fishing expedition", Matt Olsen, a former federal prosecutor, said.

Trump in May abruptly fired Comey, who in subsequent testimony, alleged that the president tried to get him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was sacked in February after revelations he lied to administration officials about his contacts with Russian officials. Witnesses have to leave the court to consult with lawyers sitting outside and grand juries are characterised by the time-consuming act of witnesses going in and out. In response, Congress is now considering bills that would make it harder for Trump to fire Mueller. "The White House favours anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly" and "is committed to fully cooperating with Mr Mueller".

"You don't impanel a grand jury if you only have smoke". "I just hope that if the police ever do arrest him they protect his head when they put him in the auto". As witnesses begin to appear and the media coverage intensifies, he will undoubtedly lash out more harshly, the way he did last night in West Virginia.
