FBI Reportedly Investigated Whether Trump Was Working For Russia

Mr. Whitaker took over supervision of Mr. Mueller's investigation on 7 November after President Trump appointed him as the chief United States law enforcement official to replace Jeff Sessions, who the president ousted.

It was a tense time.

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said the legal team of President Donald Trump has the right to vet any final report from special counsel Robert Mueller.

The sources noted that Trump's own admission that he fired Comey in May 2017 over his refusal to end the investigation into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation was one of the motivations for the probe into the president's personal ties to Moscow.

"Campaigns leak polling data all the time", Giuliani said, before decrying the focus on the investigation as a "joke" and "total mockery" that "only happens because 75 percent of the press hates Trump".

They were also motivated by his reported statements during a May White House meeting with visiting Russian officials that he had fired Comey because "he was insane, a real nut job".

"Mueller's team met with pollster Tony Fabrizio in February 2018, an interview that has not been previously reported and takes on new significance after Manafort's attorneys revealed Tuesday that Mueller's team is still interested in how Manafort shared polling data with his Russian intelligence-linked colleague".

Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president's own actions constituted a possible threat to national security.

"The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has always been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice".

Special counsel Robert Mueller took over the inquiry into Trump when he was appointed, days after Federal Bureau of Investigation officials opened it. Trump also plays a central role in a separate case in NY, where prosecutors have implicated him in a crime.

The newspaper said it's not clear whether Mueller is still looking into that matter.

When Mueller ends his investigation, he will send a report on his findings to the Justice Department.

Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general under President Obama, wrote that any Trump attempts to hide parts of the report from the public would be defeated in court.

The bill's Republican sponsors don't believe that Trump will try to fire the special counsel.
