Lawyer: Ex-FBI official McCabe still facing investigation

Share

In a report published Wednesday, the 168-year-old prestigious daily with a circulation of over 571,000, stated, "An examination by The New York Times reveals the extent of an even more sustained, more secretive assault by Mr Trump on the machinery of federal law enforcement".

The publisher of The New York Times excoriated President Donald Trump Wednesday after the commander in chief declared the newspaper the "true enemy of the people" in light of a report - filled with unknown anonymous sources - about his alleged attempts to interfere in ongoing criminal investigations.

He wrote: "The New York Times reporting is false". NY prosecutors also are looking into Trump's inaugural fund. "That is the true meaning of journalism".

Mr. Whitaker said the president never pressured him over the investigations.

If you missed this crack investigative report of investigatory crackedness, it is still available to read at the bottom of a birdcage in my living room, assuming you can make out the words underneath the canary crap. He also says Cohen lied to get a lighter sentence in NY. While some of the information has been made public before, its narrative account gives new life to both familiar and previously unknown facts that may one day provide the basis for an obstruction of justice charge against the president.

And the overwhelming majority of respondents - 93 percent - believed the Times was more credible.

According to the NYT report, Trump humiliated his former attorney general Jeff Sessions at every turn. Sulzberger is hitting back at President Donald Trump for attacking the paper as the "enemy of the people". The former acting FBI director has been making headlines over the promotion of his tell-all memoir The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump.

He suggested key officials involved in the Russian Federation probe were engaged in "treasonous" behaviour.

That investigation resulted in Cohen pleading guilty to bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance violations.

Nadler, a New York Democrat, sent a letter to Whitaker last week asking him to clear up some of his answers, saying that committee members found his testimony "unsatisfactory, incomplete, or contradicted by other evidence".

McCabe played pivotal roles in the two investigations that swirled around the 2016 presidential campaign: the much-discussed investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of personal email while she was secretary of state, and the then-secretive investigation into the Trump campaign's potential involvement in Russian interference in the 2016 election.
