To make it more hard, Trump's statements threaten to undercut their work.
Gorelick is a partner at the WilmerHale law firm. Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and has expansive powers to probe any matters that develop from his initial investigation.
Adding to questions surrounding the special counsel investigation is the fact that Rosenstein, as the current deputy attorney general, is the official who is in charge of the special counsel's activities.
Himes says interviews are still being scheduled and documents being reviewed. Congressman Ted Lieu of California said the House would immediately start the impeachment process if Donald Trump moved to fire Mueller.
"And that's what's going to happen, I believe", he said.
President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser may be getting new legal representation as the special counsel investigation into Russia's election meddling heats up.
Comey also told the Senate that he intentionally leaked his contemporaneous memos detailing his conversations with Trump in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel. Kushner has been discussing the matter with Abbe Lowell, a prominent trial lawyer.
"Witch hunt' is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia's election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates".
According to 18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361, if at the time Mr. Comey believed the comment constituted obstruction of justice, he was legally required to report it.
Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation. "Witch Hunt." It was the first time Trump had publicly acknowledged that he's under investigation.
Ledgett wrote a memo, according to the source, documenting a conversation in which the president allegedly urged Rogers to help get the FBI to lift the cloud of the Russian Federation investigation.
President Donald Trump recently announced over Twitter that he was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of a widening probe into alleged Russian meddling in last year's US presidential race and possible collusion by his campaign - an inquiry that has cast a shadow over his five months in office.
The debate over whether Trump is under investigation is silly at this point.
Why he's representing Trump: "If the president of the United States asks you for legal advice and you're a lawyer and you're serving your country and the Constitution, you do it", Sekulow said on his radio show earlier this month.
Also on Sunday, Sekulow appeared on CNN's Face The Nation and apparently confused host Jake Tapper so much that BuzzFeed wrote a story based on nine screenshots of Tapper looking perplexed during the interview.
