Trump aide communicated with ex-Russian intelligence officer during 2016 election

Trump aide communicated with ex-Russian intelligence officer during 2016 election

Based on his tweets and public comments about both entities, the Russian Federation investigation and Mueller's team, those people include the president.

The White House has denied a report claiming that a lawyer for President Trump raised the prospect of pardoning former advisers Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort as the Federal Bureau of Investigation special counsel was building cases against them.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied Wednesday that President Donald Trump's former lead attorney had raised the issue of pardons for former aides in the Russian Federation probe, as was reported by The New York Times.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders referred to Cobb's statement when asked about the Times' report at a briefing Wednesday, later adding that pardons are "not currently" under consideration.

Dowd reportedly broached the subject of a possible pardon with Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner, last summer. In December, Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI over the course of the investigation.

The special counsel's filing also noted van der Zwaan "lied regarding topics at the center of a significant investigation into the criminal conduct of [former Trump campaign chairman] Paul J. Manafort, Jr., and Richard W. Gates III". We will not likely get an answer to that question any time soon, but the contacts between Kilimnik and Gates in September and October of 2016 while Gates was still working on the campaign are undeniably curious, at the very least.

Yonkers students to participate in March For Our Lives
On February 14, 2018, a gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School . "Parkland was more of a call to action for me". The March for Our Lives is expected to set off from Central Park West and 72 Street at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 24.

The filing Tuesday, however, related to a separate case involving attorney Alexander van der Zwaan, who pleaded guilty to lying to investigators in relation to a 2012 project connected with Ukraine.

Dowd insisted Wednesday that he did not raise the idea of pardons with lawyers representing the two men.

The newspaper says that then-Trump attorney, John Dowd, raised the idea with attorneys for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"I don't want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet", he told a reporter.

Last year, The Washington Post reported that Trump had asked the White House Counsel's Office about his authority to grant pardons, including whether he could issue one for himself.

The revelation that Gates knew Kilimnik had been a Russian intelligence officer could prove to be the most significant turn in Mueller's investigation to date, said a person familiar with the probe into whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. "This is all my personal opinion, and I stand by it".
