Mueller's investigators to speak to intel officials

That report makes clear that three senior intelligence officers - Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and and former NSA deputy director Richard Ledgett - are being interviewed this week by special counsel Bob Mueller as he looks into whether Trump obstructed justice in the Russian Federation case.

The Washington Post, citing unidentified officials, on Wednesday reported that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice.

Until now, Mueller had drawn widespread praise from Republicans and Democrats alike.

A White House spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a comment request from the Journal.

After Queen Elizabeth II finishes her speech, lawmakers must vote on whether to approve it in the House of Commons . The DUP , Sinn Féin, the UUP, the SDLP and Alliance are to hold separate discussions with Mrs May.

The interviews are some of the first indications of the efforts of Mueller's newly assembled team.

Chairman Chuck Grassley has emerged as an aggressive force, pressing for Comey's written notes of his conversations with Trump and leaving the door open Tuesday to a possible obstruction of justice probe. He said Trump had called him Monday night and the two discussed Gingrich's concerns about the probe.

Those questions were prompted after a friend of President Donald Trump said the White House was considering firing Mueller.

Just a few weeks ago, Gingrich was praising Mueller as a man of integrity. But the Post reports that the focus is also shifting to Trump himself.

Trump, according to The Times, has brought up the legal and political implications of firing Mueller, whom he reportedly thinks is "incapable of an impartial investigation".

Sessions, a close Trump adviser during the battle for the presidency, said in his opening statement that it was a "detestable and appalling lie" to suggest he was aware of or participated in any collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Trump caused an uproar when he fired Comey on 9 May. Gingrich told The Associated Press in an interview this week that his feelings about him began to change after Comey testified to a Senate panel that he had leaked his personal memos in order to trigger the appointment of a special counsel.

Trump was apparently bothered by reports from conservative outlets like Breitbart News linking Mueller to Comey.

Despite that, Trump is stewing over the Mueller-led investigation in the same way he did with Comey.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions' testimony on Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee was highly contentious, as the Justice Department chief refused to answer numerous questions about conversations with President Trump and frequently stated that he did not recall alleged meetings with Russian officials.

The president has denied asking Comey to drop the Flynn matter. "So I would push back on that", Sessions said. So it didn't sound as if Trump was trying to stop the Russian Federation investigation at that point.
