Trump-Mueller report – President rages over ‘people who take notes’ as impeachment resolution gathers pace after obstruction revelations


Donald Trump has lashed out at a number of perceived enemies after the publication of the long-awaited Mueller report, which painted a damning portrait of the president’s conduct since taking office. 


The 72-year-old attacked overnight the media, a federal investigator and former FBI official, all while falsely claiming there “wasn’t any evidence” he committed a crime. 

The 450-page document, released in redacted form on Thursday, in fact, outlined a dozen instances in which Mr Trump tried to obstruct the investigation; potential crimes Mr Mueller declined to reach conclusions on.

US President Donald Trump on Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People’ List — Alongside Some of His Critics

In his third year as the United States president, President Donald Trump finds himself placed on the Time’s “100 most influential people” list.

Trump vetoes bill passed by U.S. Senate to end border emergency

President Donald Trump on Friday vetoed a congressional measure that would have blocked his attempt to use a national emergency declaration to obtain funds to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

The president’s action kicked the measure back to Congress, where the House of Representatives is expected to take it up again, likely on March 26, in an effort to override Trump’s veto, a House Democratic leadership aide said on Thursday.

TRUMP declares Illegal immigration “an invasion of our country”; announces a national emergency to fund wall for US-Mexico border

Battling with one branch of government and opening a new confrontation with another, President Donald Trump announced overnight he was declaring a national emergency to fulfill his pledge to construct a wall along the US-Mexico border.

Bypassing Congress, which approved far less money for his proposed wall than he had sought, Trump said he would use executive action to siphon billions of dollars from federal military construction and counterdrug efforts for the wall, aides said.

The move is already drawing bipartisan criticism on Capitol Hill and expected to face rounds of legal challenges. Continue reading TRUMP declares Illegal immigration “an invasion of our country”; announces a national emergency to fund wall for US-Mexico border
