Trump Says 'I Fight Back' In Russia Probe

Trump Says 'I Fight Back' In Russia Probe

The tempests that have separately buffeted the White House for months merged into a maelstrom this week and threatened to engulf President Donald Trump, who Wednesday railed against members of the Justice Department by name and took to Twitter to threaten military strikes in Syria and taunt a nuclear-armed power.

US President Donald Trump says the United States has "launched precision strikes" on targets associated with Syrian chemical weapons program.

"The president has not laid out a timetable and is still leaving a number of options on that front", she said.

Mattis' remarks at a House Armed Services Committee hearing followed a series of Trump tweets this week that initially indicated he was committed to bombing Syria but later suggested he was awaiting further advice and assessment.

"At the same time, [the Russian Federation probe] hampered the ability to do so, as well as the bad actions that Russian Federation has taken including meddling in the election among other things, but tying the president to that has created a lot of unnecessary problems", she said.

Pentagon on Syria strikes: 'We successfully hit every target'
Its foreign ministry said: "We welcome this operation which has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma". Haley said the USA was prepared to sustain the pressure if the Syrian regime was "foolish enough to test our will".

The Trump administration says the order applies to a relatively small pot of money that already requires compliance with immigration law. Syrian activists, rescuers along with medics claimed the attack from Douma killed at least forty people, with families discovered suffocated in households and lands.

Given the disengagement and Roman sessions, Rosenstein was probably the person who asked judges to allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct a search in the NY office of private counsel to trump Michael Cohen's office and his hotel room. Trump tweets: "It was my great honor to fire him". Cohen has steadfastly denied wrongdoing in his $130,000 payment to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and has publicly defended Trump, but he has confided in associates that he is fearful of being a fall guy, according to a person familiar with his thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private discussions.

"A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!" he blasted on Twitter amid news that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had seized documents pertaining to Trump's dealings.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided and seized financial documents and other materials that might be associated with the contacts of trump with his personal lawyer, who allegedly paid money Stormy Daniels, actress who starred in movies for adults, Karen Mcdougal, model, Playboy magazine, as payment for silence before presidential elections in 2016. "The investigation is critical to the health of our democracy, and must be allowed to continue".

Meanwhile, the West Wing was rocked by another resignation of a senior Trump aide - Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert. "Feels great to have Bolton & Larry K on board" Trump said.
