Christie says Mueller is being 'responsible' in Russian Federation inquiry

08 August 2017

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a supporter and friend of President Donald Trump, said Sunday that Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of past year was a bad idea, but everyone would be best served to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller's findings on the matter.

"Why are we engaging in hypotheticals?" asked Ms. Conway.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said during the weekend that the Trump administration has made clear it will cooperate with Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"The White House and the president's lawyer said he wasn't involved at all", Stephanopoulos explained. The president has called it a fiction, a total fabrication to excuse the colossal and unexpected, unwanted defeat of Hillary Clinton. Since then, concerns have grown that Trump would force out Mueller.

"He plans on being a two-term president", Conway said, adding: "Republican consultants and people trying to play the parlor game".

A Trump friend said in June that he was considering doing so, and the president admitted he fired former FBI Director James Comey in part based on his dissatisfaction with the investigation.

His concern, however, was not North Korea but fear that China would close the technology gap between the USA and Chinese militaries.

Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday defended President Donald Trump amid reports that a special investigator has convened a federal grand jury to probe possible ties between Trump's campaign and Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 election.

Kellyanne Conway desperately invoked the Benghazi attacks and the Obama administration's rhetoric over health care reform to try to change the subject from the Trump administration's bald-faced lying regarding the Russian Federation investigation.

On ABC's "This Week," Tillis said that the legislation should not indicate that lawmakers believe Trump is moving toward dismissing Mueller.

Mr. Tillis said the bill is needed to "improve the reputation of independence for the Justice Department" by taking "any sort of precipitous removal" off the table while insisting that "we don't have any specific evidence to suggest that the president is going to do that". "This is policy that lives beyond this administration incidentally, and it's important policy, I think, going forward".

STEPHANOPOULOS: But will he commit not to fire him? Sekulow, formerly one of the more vocal members of the legal team, told Axios that there wasn't particularly a "message change", but more of an acknowledgement of the situation: "It's just as issues develop, we respond to them within the context of what you can discuss and what you can't".

"Let's talk about telling the truth", Conway snapped.
