Strzok, a former deputy to the assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI, oversaw the bureau's interviews with ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, changed former FBI Director James Comey's early draft language about Hillary Clinton's actions regarding her private email server from "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless" and reportedly helped push the largely unverified dossier on Trump that was initially prepared by Fusion GPS for the Clinton campaign's opposition research.

In the few days that Gen. Flynn did act as President Trumps security advisor, before Trumps inauguration, any contact Flynn had with any foreign country, Russia included, was totally necessary and lawful. If Trump is found to have maintained unethical and potentially illegal ties to Russia, and lied about it, this could be about obstruction of justice or/and the high crime of treason. He added, "Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!" That's nearly as bad as Benghazi and Hillary's plotted overthrow of Gadaffie that left Libya in ISIS hands; or, the smuggling of arms to ISIS in Iraq and the "rules of engagement" that all but neutralized our troops on the battlefield. They followed the President's attacks on the FBI and his raising of doubts that justice would be served by the Mueller investigation at the weekend.

Trump tweeted Sunday: "Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI 'agent's role in Clinton probe under review.' Led Clinton Email probe".

Even before the latest bombshell, former US attorney Andrew McCarthy was already warning about the credibility of Mueller's investigation, which he said "started out as a fishing expedition". "You tweet and comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril. The FBI's reputation is not in 'tatters, '" Holder wrote on Twitter. "There was nothing to hide!"

Several Democrats noted that during the GOP impeachment of President Bill Clinton, a number of Senate Republicans, including Trump's attorney general Jeff Sessions - then a senator from Alabama - voted to remove Clinton from office for obstruction of justice.

Until Monday, we knew a change had been made but we didn't know who had actually suggested it, given that such drafts are team efforts and get input from a lot of people. The combined health entity of CVS and Aetna also plans to offer text alerts when a patient's glucose level goes out of range; counseling on medication adherence; weight-loss counseling; nutritional counseling to reverse diabetes naturally and more. 4.

"Keep calm and tackle hard", the email concluded, according to The Times.

"The FBI is in 'tatters'?" What's the price of their silence? To be clear, this story constitutes a major image crisis for the FBI. The non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation projected it would add $US1 trillion to the deficit over a decade, disputing the insistence by Republicans that it would pay for itself through economic growth.

11, he quoted a sermon from the late English Baptist preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon about the difference between a truth and a lie, hours after President Donald Trump called Comey a proven "liar" and "leaker". Mueller confirmed that the FBI uses drones for domestic surveillance during the hearing on FBI oversight. I'd be careful if I were you, Mr. President.

Colbert said that Trump denying being on the bus was "the dumbest thing he could have done", because "no one would have printed" Bush's op-ed and "I couldn't show this footage of the bus unless he denied it again, too".
