Special prosecutor to meet Senate committee leaders
(FoxNews) Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is overseeing the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, will meet with senior Senate Judiciary Committee members to make sure there is no conflict between his probe and the committee’s.
Reuters, citing congressional aides, reported that Mueller will meet with Sen. Charles Grassley, the committee’s Republican chairman, and its top Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, on Wednesday.
Fox News reported that President Trump's legal team and his defenders are taking an aggressive defensive stance, now that Special Counsel Bob Mueller has announced an initial hiring of 12 attorneys, some of whom appear to harbor political leanings.
