New York Times sues FBI to get notes of Comey-Trump talks

Mueller, a former FBI director who was named special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation after Comey was sacked, is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Kremlin officials in a bid to tilt the 2016 election in his favour.
But Trump is likely to be disappointed if he is ultimately seeking to stop the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director, according to Cramer and members of Congress. He then circled back again Friday morning to blame Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for his own predicament.
Mueller is overseeing a host of investigations involving people who are or were in Trump's orbit, people familiar with the probe were quoted as saying.
However, it could also be read to say that he had learned he was under investigation and was expressing frustration over that fact.
Trump's tweet Friday reflected the first official confirmation that he is being investigated by the special counsel for the reasons he fired Comey last month.
Trump's tweet could force Rosenstein's recusal in the Mueller investigation, according to a Bloomberg View article by Harvard law professor Noah Feldman.
The order by the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.
Other presidents have managed to compartmentalize investigations and go about the business of governing, but Trump seems consumed by the Mueller probe.
Richard Cullen is a former Virginia attorney general and a former United States attorney for the eastern district of Virginia.
No proof on collusion with Russians, tweets Donald Trump Rosenstein, who would be responsible for actually dismissing Mueller , told U.S. lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause. The president complained the probe is unfair and wondered why his defeated Democratic opponent wasn't getting the same scrutiny.
A Justice Department spokesman said: "If there comes a point when he needs to recuse, he will".
As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the USA intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy.
Boente, however, was nominated by former President Barack Obama and his USA attorney's office has already been leading parts of the federal investigation.
In the interview Trump did with NBC's Lester Holt shortly after firing FBI Director James Comey, Trump described Rosenstein's involvement in the firing. Trump has expressed increasing dissatisfaction with the Justice Department since Mueller's appointment.
Also unclear was whether the president's comment confirming he was under investigation was based on direct knowledge or media reports that Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey last month.
