President trump’s attorney general nominee William Barr says tonight it’s important to let Robert Mueller complete his work adding, the country needs a credible resolution of these issues. Barr is also sure to get questions tomorrow about the revelation that the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation of president trump in 2017 after he fired FBI director James Comey to see if the president was secretly working with russia. One factor was his comment to Russian officials the next day that the firing took away great pressure because of Russia. Another is what he told Lester about firing Comey. "When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story."
The FBI's action followed internal debate but overlaps with the possible obstruction of justice. Whether it’s a criminal investigation or a counterintelligence investigation, the FBI is going to be asking the same questions and seeking the same answers. Mueller took over the investigation several days later and nothing made public has ever said the president took direction from the russians. Today he said the investigation was started by FBI people who have been fired and were out to get him. The people doing that investigation were people that have been caught that are known scoundrels -- I guess you could say they’re dirty cops. As for barr, he says it’s important that congress and the public are informed of the results of mueller's investigation.
For there is only one thing that people can't take away from you, and that is your wisdom.
One Republican senator who was opposed to impeachment kept us informed of what was going on among his colleagues.
