Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chief, drops legal team

Donald Trump I’m Not Firing Robert Mueller No Collusion With Russia					by Charlie Spiering10 Aug 20170		10 Aug 2017		10 Aug 2017

I thought it was a very - you know - they do that very seldom. "It's been a very complicated issue for the military, it's been a very confusing issue for the military, and I think I'm doing the military a great favor".

Trump was asked about the Manafort search during a question-and-answer session with reporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf course. "I've been reading about it from you people".

Trump told The New York Times in July that had he known Sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation he wouldn't have hired him.

Trump said August 10 that there was no bad blood between him and his attorney general, saying of his relationship with Sessions, "is what it is".

For weeks, Washington political circles have been on high alert for the possibility Trump would remove Mueller or otherwise try to assert greater control of the ongoing federal Russian Federation probe. "But I also want the Senate and House to come out with their findings". Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein, also have reviewed the contents of memos written by fired FBI Director James Comey and his interactions with President Donald Trump as the committee reviews whether there was any improper interference with the FBI investigation to Trump associates. Rosenstein appointed former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller to the role, and Mueller left his partnership at WilmerHale to take on the job.

Asked if "Mueller should be able to investigate whether Donald Trump had any financial dealings with Russia,"70 percent of Americans said he should be able to, while only 25 percent agreed with Trump that his finances should be out of bounds".

North Korea and the Trump Administration's Foreign Policy Dysfunction
The U.S. shouldn't make threats that it isn't prepared to carry out, but threatening to attack North Korea is a deranged thing to do in any case, so there is no excuse for what Trump did.

Trump, who had criticized Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation, said Thursday that their relationship is "is what it is".

"I've always found Paul Manafort to be a very decent man. Probably makes consultant fees from all over the place, who knows".

Mueller's investigators have sent subpoenas to global banks for information on financial transactions involving Manafort.

Manafort showed up in a mysterious Ukrainian "black ledger" that showed him as having gotten millions in off-the-books payments, then got let go as campaign chief after reports about his connections to a pro-Moscow Ukrainian political party. He said he took the action because "our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

Trump, however, appeared to suggest that others drawing investigative interest may have merely overlooked requirements to document their work as foreign agents, as required by the government.
