Kellyanne Conway: Hopelessly stuck in the past

Back in June, Donald Trump was still treating the Russian Federation investigation like just another defamation suit, one of a countless number of lawsuits that Trump has been involved in over the years. The second was when Stephanopoulos demanded an assurance that President Trump wouldn't fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" that the Russian Federation investigation was not a fishing expedition.

The Trump campaign has a lot of Russian connections. So her admission on Sunday that Trump's approval rating needed improvement was an unusual deviation for the president's counselor.

Grand juries are common vehicles to gather evidence, though they do not suggest any criminal charges are near or will necessarily be sought.

The first request for information about the Lynch-Clinton tarmact meeting came on the afternoon of June 28, when Mike Levine, the Justice Department producer for ABC News, asked officials for comment, saying that his network's affiliate in Phoenix was hearing reports about it. The person who confirmed to The Associated Press that Mueller had turned to a grand jury was not authorized to discuss the investigation by name and spoke on condition of anonymity. The president is not discussing firing Bob Mueller. The first attorney he retained to lead his legal team, Marc Kasowitz, was his longtime personal lawyer from his NY real-estate days, and he responded as if former F.B.I. director James Comey's sworn Senate testimony was just another meritless claim he could dismiss with a cease-and-desist letter.

Conway deflected, echoing Huckabee Sanders' assertions that Trump weighed in as "any father would" before Stephanopoulos challenged her further, noting the White House's problem with "telling the truth".

Poll Finds Most Americans Support Transgender Military Service

United States tests missile defense after North Korean ballistic launch
The drills involved South Korea's road-mobile ballistic missile, the Hyunmoo -2, and the USA forces' Army Tactical Missile System. The last time the USA tested THAAD, earlier this month, it said it successfully intercepted an intermediate-range missile target.

The plan to spend the first part of next week in NY was confirmed by White House spokesperson Lindsay Walters, though she did not offer additional details about the goal of the trip. "Now, whether that prejudices them in one way or another remains to be seen, but it is relevant information for people to have", Conway told "Fox and Friends" in July.

"That is complete fiction, complete fabrication", she said.

Congress, the judicial branch and Trump's own administration have all played a role in expanding the investigation and taking it seriously.

Trump has repeatedly railed against the investigation as a "witch hunt" and denied any wrongdoing.

Now, just because an investigation is indeed very real doesn't mean we know its conclusion.

He has the authority to prosecute any crimes uncovered during his investigation, and he was given wide authority to investigate whether Trump or his associates colluded with the Kremlin to win the White House.
