Trump to Address Nation from the White House

Trump to Address Nation from the White House

In Washington, Trump said earlier today that a decision would come "fairly soon", though he equivocated in his tweets on the timing of any military strikes.

In the forthcoming book, Comey compares Trump to a mafia don and calls his leadership of the country "ego driven and about personal loyalty".

"He certainly believes that he has the power to do so", she said at Tuesday's press briefing.

At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing".

On Capitol Hill, a bipartisan group of four senators moved to protect Mueller's job. Chris Coons of DE and Cory Booker of New Jersey planned to introduce legislation Wednesday that would give any special counsel a 10-day window in which he or she could seek expedited judicial review of a firing, according to two people familiar with the legislation.

Trump spent Monday evening calling associates to vent and gauge their reaction to the news.

That attack, White says, hit a Syrian military air base and was meant to focus on Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons. Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons.

Five people familiar with the president's views say the raid of attorney Michael Cohen's records left the president more angry than advisers had seen him in weeks.

Meanwhile, Axios' Jonathan Swan reports that several people around Trump have described him as being at a "breaking point" in regard to the Mueller investigation, who the people worry Trump will fire.

"We are still working on this", said Mattis on Wednesday at Pentagon when asked by reporters if there was enough evidence to blame the Syrian government for the deadly attack. Trump continues to admit that it feels "great to have Bolton & Larry K on board".

The trip, set to begin Friday, would have been the president's first to Latin America. "No final decision has been made", Sanders said. "I think there's a better way of doing this". Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told NBC News on Thursday the administration has "enough proof" of the chemical attack but was still considering its response.

US officials have refused to rule out direct military engagement with Russian Federation, with the White House saying "all options are on the table".

Rosenstein authored a memo criticizing James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and the note was later cited as justification for firing the FBI director.
