Mueller sent a notice, called a document preservation request, asking White House staff to save "any subjects discussed in the course of the June 2016 meeting" and also "any decisions made regarding the recent disclosures about the June 2016 meeting," according to the source, who read portions of the letter to CNN.The letter from Mueller began: "As you are aware the Special Counsel's office is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Donald Trump. Information concerning the June 2016 meeting between Donald J Trump Jr and Natalia Veselnitskaya is relevant to the investigation." The preservation request is broad and includes text messages, emails, notes, voicemails and other communications and documentation regarding the June 2016 meeting and any related communication since then.On Wednesday, the White House counsel's office sent a notice to White House staff informing them of the document preservation request. A second source confirmed to CNN the letter was sent to White House personnel.Such notices are frequently sent in the early stages of investigation and puts those who receive it on notice of the need to hold on to the material and specifically not to destroy documents that could be relevant to the investigation and requested in the future.
NOTHING KYLE! NOTHING!
I think you will be saying that the day Trump resigns to avoid impeachment just like Nixon.
ROFLMAO!

The Republicans control congress and the presidency. And they are showing they do not know how to govern.

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress...divides-n785386

Six months after assuming control of both chambers of Congress and the White House, Republicans are struggling to pass major parts of their ambitious legislative agenda, and they face a growing list of controversial issues that are testing the party’s ability to govern.

In Congress, Republicans have been unable to bridge differences between diverse factions of the party on health care reform, a dynamic that threatens to intrude on other major issues like the federal budget. At the White House, President Donald Trump has been mired in investigations that have consumed much of his time, leaving him an ineffective chief spokesperson for the party and their ideas.

The Republicans’ legislative problems are made more complicated by an unpredictable president in the White House. Republicans publicly are giving Trump a pass on not doing enough to help them advance their agenda. But privately, Capitol Hill aides are frustrated and feel abandoned by a president consumed with ongoing investigations into Russia and his seemingly single-minded focus on it. In addition, aides admit that Trump has not shown a commitment to learning details necessary to successfully sell legislation to both skeptical members and the public.

Trump, a different breed of Republican who has repeatedly shown little loyalty to the party, has also actively worked against members of his own party at times. A super PAC supporting Trump launched television ads against Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., after he came out against the first health care bill. The super PAC took down the ads after Republican leaders quietly protested and Heller brought it up directly with the president during a health care gathering.

Trump later joked in front of Heller and his colleagues and the press, “He wants to remain a senator, right?”

Heller hasn’t been Trump’s only target. The White House has met with primary opponents to Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who is up for re-election in 2018. Kelli Ward, Flake’s primary opponent, told NBC News she was “more encouraged” to run after a recent meeting at the White House.

While Flake refused to comment about the White House working against his re-election, his colleagues said it’s not helpful.

“I want to see all our senators come back, so I would prefer that they would focus on defeating the Democratic opponents and invest their time and resources and energy on that,” said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., and Republican conference chairman.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said there will be a Senate vote on health care early this coming week. Whatever the outcome, GOP leaders are anxious to move forward to other agenda items but their intra-party differences could prove a bigger challenge than the shrinking calendar.

GOP despairs at inability to deliver

The party’s failure to repeal Obamacare amid West Wing chaos has GOPers frustrated they’re squandering power.

By Eliana Johnson and Josh Dawsey

07/23/2017 11:54 PM EDT

The Republican Party is more powerful than it’s been in more than a decade — and yet it has never seemed so weak.

Continuing chaos in the White House has been punctuated by the failure to deliver on the GOP’s seven-year pledge to overhaul Obamacare, and has many asking whether the party can capitalize on the sweeping victories it has achieved at the federal, state, and local levels.

Ahead of this week's crucial Senate vote on health care, White House aides are already considering how to distance President Donald Trump from Congress and how to go after the Republicans who vote no — an idea the president seems fond of, according to people who have spoken to him. Several people said he plans to keep up the fight, no matter how this week's vote goes.

He threatened Republicans on Twitter Sunday, saying they would face electoral consequences, and complained about his party not defending him — even though congressional Republicans are tired of defending him all the time.

“It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President," he wrote.

Meanwhile, those close to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell say they are frustrated that the president has shown little focus on his political agenda, particularly health care. Trump's interview with the New York Times this week, for example, where he raged about Attorney General Jeff Sessions instead of promoting health care, was "political malpractice," one senior GOP aide said.
The most reliable politics newsletter.

With control of both Congress and the White House — and yet no major legislative successes to point to — the Republican Party is finding itself stuck. A GOP Congress is frustrated with the president, and is unsure what will happen next in his daily West Wing drama. And Trump wants to sign legislation to show he is effective, and is frustrated bills are not on his desk.

A sudden White House shakeup on Friday made it even more clear that Trump, who campaigned as an outsider, is determined to govern as one, too — and not listen to McConnell, Speaker Paul Ryan and other orthodox allies. The president expanded the power of the political neophytes in his administration, elevating the Manhattan hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci to White House communications director, at the cost of an operative – press secretary Sean Spicer, who announced his resignation on Friday — with years of Washington experience.

Spicer was not the only establishment casualty. Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff who, at least in title holds one of the most powerful jobs in Washington, has been largely sidelined. Several West Wing aides suggested he should quit — and wondered Sunday why he doesn't, according to White House aides and advisers.

The hire of Scaramucci as communications director was the biggest shot yet at Priebus, White House officials say, because he was opposed by Priebus, will report directly to Trump, and will be far more powerful than a normal communications director.

Learning what? That Obamacare is a failure! We already know that but the problem is people like you who can't admit it!
