Trump pushed for Clinton, Comey probe

NY Times: Trump Wanted to Order Federal Prosecutions of Clinton, Comey

Dean-who was sacked by Nixon during the Watergate scandal, plead guilty to obstruction of justice over his involvement and later become a key witness for the prosecution-told Berman: "If I had to channel a little of Richard Nixon, I think he'd tell this president he's going too far".

US President Donald Trump told his top White House lawyer in spring 2018 that he wanted to prosecute former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and ex-FBI Director James Comey, US media reported.

Dean said that while Nixon broke the law by his involvement in the Watergate scandal, resulting in the president's resignation in 1974, the idea that Trump would try to get Clinton and Comey prosecuted, as the New York Times reported late Tuesday, amounts to "really very, very heavy sledding".

"I think he would", Dean answered.

Comey also released a book in April, 'A Higher Loyalty, ' in which he excoriated Trump as a corrupt authoritarian leader who should never have been given the reins of power. "I've listened to all the tapes that are relevant".

It remains unclear which accusations Trump wanted United States prosecutors to pursue, the newspaper added.

'ABSURD RULING': Trump Admin Responds to Judge's Decision to BLOCK Asylum Ban
US Customs and Border Protection said on Monday it closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the San Ysidro crossing. Immigrant rights groups praised the ruling.

Trump has continued to privately discuss the matter of prosecuting his longtime adversaries, including talk of a new special counsel to investigate both Clinton and Comey, the newspaper said, citing two people who had spoken to Trump about the matter.

Tuesday's revelations raise further concerns about Trump's apparent political use of the DOJ, which the president appears to consider a partisan tool to support his administration and harass his critics.

Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sent a letter to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly demanding information on Ivanka Trump's reported use of personal email.

"More importantly", wrote Lederman, Trump's influence presumably is now stronger, with [acting attorney general Matt] Whitaker in place".

On the campaign trail and in campaign-style rallies since his election, Trump has led the call against his former presidential opponent to "lock her up".
