Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances, Washington Post reports

Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about the ongoing Russian Federation controversy as he departed the White House Friday for Miami.

President Donald Trump confirmed Friday he was under investigation and appeared to take aim at a senior Justice Department official, in a tweet that seemed to encapsulate his frustration with the ongoing focus on Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

The department would not comment on the record on whether Trump, who has repeatedly complained about leaks on the case, requested the statement. He was also given the authority to investigate obstruction.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is leading an investigation into collusion between Trump associates and Moscow.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein warned against trusting anonymous sources late Thursday night, shortly before The Washington Post published a damaging story about White House adviser Jared Kushner that relied on unnamed USA officials as sources.

Rosenstein did not explain why he issued the statement.

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday hired his own lawyer to represent him in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

While this one won't be vastly more powerful than a normal Pokemon, raid bosses will tend to be rare and powerful Pokemon types. Raid events will also occur at gyms, temporarily superseding usual gym shenanigans and sending Pokemon back to their trainers.

In another tweet earlier Friday, Trump writes, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof".

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, the federal government's chief prosecutor in Manhattan before Trump fired him in March, tweeted a warning of his own. Trump cited the memo in firing Comey. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

The White House has directed questions for details to outside legal counsel, which has not responded.

An aide to Vice President Mike Pence revealed on Thursday that he was hiring Richard Cullen-a veteran of the Iran-Contra investigation, Watergate and the 2000 vote recount in Florida-as a private lawyer. Mr. Mueller inherited the criminal investigations into Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions' job in the Trump administration is to protect Donald Trump, but with the news that the Attorney General may have perjured himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee, the problems are piling up quickly.

On Wednesday, The Post reported that Mueller is looking at whether the President attempted to obstruct justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey last month. Cohen has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign.
