But many of Washington’s best criminal defense lawyers have appeared reluctant to work for a president known to ignore legal counsel and a family that has repeatedly failed to fully disclose contacts with people linked to Russian Federation. Renowned First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams explains why the litigants who sued President Trump for blocking their Twitter accounts might just have a shot when it comes to winning their case.
President Trump has hired a former federal prosecutor to assist in how the White House handles its response to the expanding Russian Federation probes.
“This week the Trump administration will honor the unbelievable American workers and companies who have products that are made in America”, White House Director of Media Affairs Helen Ferre told reported July 16.
Still, it’s tough to imagine anyone, even hardcore opponents, having an issue with the president’s announcement on Sunday that the White House will run a three-week “Made In America” campaign.
Asked at Sunday’s briefing whether “Made in America” week would include a commitment from the Trump Organization or Ivanka Trump’s company to make more of their products in the United States, Ferre told reporters, “We’ll get back to you on that”. Former FBI Director Bob Mueller, who is overseeing the Justice Department’s Russian Federation probe, was a partner with Gorelick.
A January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership preferred presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, and that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an “influence campaign” to harm Clinton’s electoral chances and “undermine public faith in the USA democratic process”.
On a professional level, Gorelick faced questions over whether her work for Kushner in the Russian Federation matter would conflict with Mueller’s work at the Justice Department.
The administration’s decision to focus on American-made products has prompted discussion of Trump brand items.
Brad Parscale, the data and digital director for Trump’s campaign, said he’ll talk with the House Intelligence Committee as part of the investigation.
The White House is also considering import tariffs on products manufactured in other countries to give incentives for companies to stay in America. And Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and a senior adviser in the White House, shook things up on his team.
The Hill reported that they have not gotten a response and another Republican called for all of Trump’s children to exit the White House.
