WASHINGTON - The Latest on investigations into potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign (all times local):
President Donald Trump is calling special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into election meddling "an attack on our country" during a White House meeting with top military advisers.
Trump is offering a critical take on the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the election, saying the probe is a distraction.
The president is criticizing the federal raid of the offices of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
Cohen has been under scrutiny over a $130,000 payment to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago.
President Donald Trump is calling the federal raid on the offices of his personal attorney "a disgrace."
A furious Trump was responding Monday to the raid earlier in the day on Michael Cohen's office.
Cohn has been under scrutiny over a $130,000 payment to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago.
The raid was conducted by the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan and was based at least in part on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller reports to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Federal agents have raided the office of President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to a porn actress who says she had sex with Trump more than a decade ago.
The raid on Cohen's office was done by the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan and was based at least partly on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, according to Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan.
The raid creates a new legal headache for Trump even as he and his attorneys weigh whether to agree to an interview with Mueller's team, which in addition to investigating potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign is also examining whether the president's actions constitute obstruction of justice.
