FBI investigated how Trump's actions seemed to benefit Russian Federation

The president's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign had aroused suspicions among agents and senior Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, who were unsure how to proceed with such a sensitive inquiry and thus chose to hesitate.

President Donald said in a TV interview Sunday he would not intervene if Matthew Whitaker, his acting US AG, moved to curtail Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. We did already know all of that!

The investigation has not concluded and the public has not been notified of the final results.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that White House counsel Pat Cipollone is gearing up by hiring 17 new lawyers to the team to prepare to "prevent President Trump's confidential discussions with top advisers from being disclosed to House Democratic investigators and revealed in the special counsel's long-awaited report".

One aspect of that investigation - whether Trump's firing of Comey represented obstruction of justice - has been previously reported.

Trump has disputed the allegations from the dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.

But even Fox News analysts have agreed that Manafort's reputed sharing of internal campaign data with a Russian intelligence-linked operative was the surest evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Kremlin yet.

President Trump said he was unaware of Mr. Whitaker's past statements about Mr. Mueller's probe and that he would "not get involved" if Mr. Whitaker moved to curtail it. Prosecutors claim that, in a money-laundering case involving NY real estate, Veselnitskaya lied about her links to Russian intelligence.

It's not clear whether the report will ever be released publicly.

Since at least last summer, Trump's legal team has been drafting a rebuttal in preparation for Mueller's report.

The lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison for multiple crimes, including felony violations of campaign finance laws he undertook, prosecutors alleged, under Trump's direction.

"We have a memo from a number of campaign finance experts that paying what they call hush money, since it has a personal objective, is not considered a campaign contribution", Giuliani said. Until then, the professional attorney can only wait amidst his doubts to see if Mueller "puts up or shuts up".
