Interested in Russia Investigation?

"I believe that our department and our office have been appropriately managing that investigation", Rosenstein told The Journal.

The reports are coming.

During the trial, Ellis regularly pushed prosecutors to "expedite" their case, to drop items he thought irrelevant, and to dramatically curtail the use of pictures and exhibits illustrating Manafort's lavish lifestyle, telling jurors, "We don't prosecute people because they have a lot of money and throw it around".

Both cases against Manafort involved his political consulting for the Russian-backed government of Ukraine and its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, well before Manafort served briefly as Trump's campaign chairman.

For months now, Republicans have issued subpoenas and sought documents in connection with the investigation.

Lawmakers who have been conducting an examination of investigative decisions made during the 2016 election by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department have been calling on Goddlatte to subpoena Rosenstein, and force him to answer questions.

Trump also often gripes about Attorney General Jeff Sessions' decision to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation previous year, after it emerged that he had not been forthcoming during his confirmation hearing about his contacts with Russians during the campaign.

The top lawmakers on two House committees will interview Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein next week about reports that he had discussed secretly recording U.S. President Donald Trump.

"Based on additional information we've learned over the last week, it is clear Rod Rosenstein should resign immediately", Meadows wrote on Twitter, noting, without being specific, that Rosenstein "has not cooperated with Congress, failed to be transparent about his actions, and shown a lack of candor in the way he's characterized a number of events".

Things between Trump and Rosenstein seemed to simmer down a bit after they met aboard Air Force One last week. "So, that to me is the most frustrating part". "You serve at the pleasure of the president, and there's never been any ambiguity about that in my mind". The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the dossier, which was then used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a pretext to spy on former Trump-campaign volunteer Carter Page.
