The U.S. special counsel in the Russian Federation probe has evidence that President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen travelled to Prague in 2016, refuting Cohen's claim that he never visited the Czech capital and bolstering an intelligence dossier that first described the trip, McClatchy reported on Friday.
Trump has been told previously that he is not a target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
"There is a belief that President Trump will soon move to fire Special Prosecutor Mueller", Joseph's email continued. President Donald Trump called the raid and investigation of Cohen, his personal lawyer, a "disgraceful situation" and "a total witch hunt". Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said: "In this case, we have not assessed the credibility of the potential for disturbances, and we do not have any knowledge of the president's decision-making process".
It is then up to Rosenstein whether or not to include the information in the special counsel's probe or refer it elsewhere. Trump has publicly criticized Mueller, who is investigating potential ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign and possible obstruction of justice.
As of February, more than 220,000 people in all 50 states had signed on through MoveOn.org to protest if Trump fires the special counsel. "However, through an abundance of caution, we attempt to adequately prepare for an appropriate response". "I would rather say, I'm going to take the president at his word. Many people have said, 'You should fire [Mueller]'".

One action Barbara Bush took as she left her role as first lady echoes the sentiments she previously expressed on gay rights. In 2013, she attended the same-sex wedding in Kennebunkport, Maine, of her friends Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen.
The shift gives some breathing room for Mueller, as well as Rosenstein, who has been criticized strongly by House Republicans for being slow to comply with requests for classified documents.
Could it be one reason McConnell is so determined to help Trump keep his job because he wants his wife, Elaine Chao, the secretary of transportation, to keep hers? It seems to temper the conclusion that Trump would be firing Rosenstein or Mueller exclusively for his own purposes.
However, on Wednesday, Trump seemed to take a different tack, responding to a reporter's question about the fate of the three officials by saying "they're still here". "We have to get back to business".
Many of President Trump's friends are said to be anxious that his personal attorney-fixer-bagman Michael Cohen will turn on him and cooperate with the feds in order to avoid jail time. And in that same speech, he made light of the Trump-prostitute allegation, saying Trump had met the most attractive women in the world and so had no need for Moscow prostitutes, adding that "they are also the best in the world".
