"It's corrosive to our body politic".

The appointment came after a growing cry - mostly from Democrats - mounted for someone outside the Justice Department to handle the probe. But with each passing week, the independent investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russian Federation is getting more real, not less.

CONWAY: George, the president has said the entire investigation is fabricated. The president's defenders, like New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie, point out that grand juries are a normal process of any investigation.

It was just over a week later that Federal Bureau of Investigation officials questioned Hillary Clinton, and then made the announcement that no charges would be filed against her, despite questions about her email security, and how she handled classified materials.

The rest, said Farrell, can be balanced out, and that is what made the extra days this week so important. Despite not playing on Wednesday, Boston upped its first-place lead over the Yankees to a full game.

Not skipping a beat, Ms Conway said: "You know, let's talk about telling the truth.Let's talk about a president looking Americans in the eye, who are still suffering eight years later, who were lied to".

Conway's dismissal of the firing speculation echoes Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow, who told Fox News on Thursday that "the president is not thinking about firing Bob Mueller, so the speculation that's out there is just incorrect". If you like your plan you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor".

Trump told the New York Times last month that Mueller would "cross a red line" if he expanded the probe to include his family's finances that aren't in relation to Russian Federation.

"Kellyanne, you're simply changing the subject", Stephanopoulos interrupted.

The Republican governor also said it was unclear what role Trump played in crafting Trump Jr.'s initial response to news reports about the meeting, which Trump Jr. first said was "primarily" about adoption and its relation to U.S. sanctions on Russian Federation under the Magnitsky Act.

In fact, both Butowsky and Spicer claim that the president never actually had any contact with Butowsky or saw a draft. Butowsky told CNN that "the lawsuit is bulls**t" and said "Wigdor pulled this out of his butt to make money".

However, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said in a separate interview on the program that while the move was "not unexpected", it was significant because it showed the investigation had reason to move forward. A Quinnipiac poll, meanwhile, found that 74 percent of New York City residents disapprove of the job that Trump is doing, and 79 percent do not want the president to spend more time in the city. "What is this investigation really about?"
