The investigation was started under FBI Director James Comey, a Republican.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who was nominated and confirmed by Republicans.
Iran has long been secretly “enriching,” in total violation of the terrible 150 Billion Dollar deal made by John Kerry and the Obama Administration. Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2019
From witch hunt to foreign policy I present the President of the United States of America.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Washington Post reports, has issued an unanimous ruling that dismisses a case brought by Attorney Generals of both Maryland and the District of Columbia against the President.
The three judge-panel said in its ruling that the Attorneys General lacked legal standing to bring the lawsuit that accused President Trump of violating the Emoluments clauses of the U.S. Constitution.
This decision by “Judges Paul V. Niemeyer, Dennis W. Shedd and A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. — also stops dozens of subpoenas to federal government agencies and Trump’s private business entities for financial records related to the D.C. hotel.”
Judge Niemeyer writes, “The District and Maryland’s interest in enforcing the Emoluments Clauses is so attenuated and abstract that their prosecution of this case readily provokes the question of whether this action against the President is an appropriate use of the courts, which were created to resolve real cases and controversies between the parties.”
In a statement after the ruling President Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said the dismissal is a “complete victory,” adding, “This latest effort at Presidential harassment has been dismissed with prejudice.”
Maryland AG Brain Froch and D.C. AG Karl Racine, both as the article notes are Democrats, have not ruled out appealing to the full panel of the 4th Circuit, and neither would be surprised if it makes its way to the Supreme Court.
I don’t make money, but lose a fortune for the honor of serving and doing a great job as your President.
And he’s so humble too.
