Former FBI Director James Comey, the man at the center of frequent rants by President Donald Trump concerning the Russian Federation probe, said he does not want special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation leads to the president's impeachment.
"Let it come out, let people see it", Trump told reporters on his way to leave the While House for OH on March 20.
Russian Federation has repeatedly denied interfering in the election, saying the allegations were made up to excuse the defeat of Trump's campaign opponent as well as deflect public attention from actual instances of electoral fraud and corruption.
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, recently testified before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Comey wrote that despite his belief Trump is "morally unfit" for the presidency, he is "not rooting" for Mueller to demonstrate criminality by Trump. But during his confirmation hearing last month, Barr said he ultimately will decide what the public sees, and that any report will be in his words, not Mueller's.
The messaging could carry the President through the critical final stages of the Mueller investigation, and also frame a pillar of his re-election argument as he heads out onto the campaign trail ahead of the 2020 campaign. After having won "one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country", Trump said, some "man out of the blue" who "never got a vote" has been given authority to a write a partisan report.

However, she added: "President Trump likes Chairman Kim [Jong-un] and he doesn't think these sanctions will be necessary". President Trump's unusual move comes after his second summit with Kim, held last month in Hanoi, Vietnam .

Former Vice President Joe Biden threatens to eclipse both of them if he runs, with his Pennsylvania roots and blue-collar backing. Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg also announced this week that he would not seek the Democratic nomination.
Of course no one knows when the investigation will be wrapped up, but when it is over, Mueller's findings should be released to everyone.
Flood and his team have gamed out the outlines of how the White House would react to different scenarios, based on the extent of Attorney General Bill Barr's disclosure to Congress and whether the findings are exculpatory or damaging to the President.
"That's why this whole debate about whether Rod Rosenstein was joking when he said "I'll wire up against the president" or not sort of rung in my ear a little bit".
Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was appointed in May 2017 with widespread bipartisan backing in Congress, four months into Trump's turbulent presidency. But the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said Democrats should push for something far more productive, such as taking back the White House in 2020. I don't-I don't think people get it. "I think it's ridiculous". "Now somebody's going to write a report, who never got a vote".
His line of attack helps explain the strategy adopted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when faced with demands from the Democratic grassroots for the impeachment of the President even before Mueller's report.
The CNN poll suggests that Pelosi may have convinced some Democrats.
