|Trump-Mueller report: 'Breakdown-level anxiety' among White House aides concerned release will out them to president ||He's Kevin Durant, and you're not |
White House officials are reportedly suffering âbreakdown-levelâ anxiety over whether the Mueller report will expose them as a source of damaging information about Donald Trump. More than a dozen current and former administration personnel cooperated with special counsel Robert Muellerâs investigation into whether the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia, according to NBC News. The report is expected to be made public in redacted form by attorney general William Barr on Thursday, following pressure from Congress to release the findings in full. Some officials and their lawyers have allegedly asked the Justice Department to clarify if the report will make their identities obvious out of fear over Mr Trump or his alliesâ reaction if it reveals they criticised the president or revealed negative information about him.âThey got asked questions and told the truth, and now theyâre worried the wrath will follow,â a former Trump official told NBC. One person close to the White House told NBC News there was âbreakdown-level anxietyâ among current and former officials who spoke with Mr Muellerâs office at the direction of the presidentâs legal team. The Justice Department has not specified a time and provided no insight into how much of Mr Muellerâs report will be redacted upon release on 18 April, but the president is already ramping up his attacks on those involved in the probe. âThe Mueller Report, which was written by 18 Angry Democrats who also happen to be Trump Haters (and Clinton Supporters), should have focused on the people who SPIED on my 2016 Campaign, and others who fabricated the whole Russia Hoax,â Mr Trump falsely tweeted on Monday. In fact, Mr Mueller is a registered Republican and there is no suggestion his team engaged in a partisan investigation. Mr Trump on Wednesday doubled down on this claims, wrongly claiming the Russia probe was initiated by âdirty copsâ and Hillary Clinton. Mr Barr, in a four-page summary to Congress last month, reported Mr Mueller had cleared Mr Trump and his campaign of colluding with Russia, but said the former FBI director had steered clear of ruling on whether the president obstructed justice. Mr Trump claimed the investigation exonerated him on both counts, something that was not true. He also pressed Mr Barr to launch an investigation into why the FBI began its probe of members of his campaign team, claiming he was the victim of an âattempted coupâ.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
