Trump scraps overseas trip to focus on Syria

Mueller has increasingly dug into Trump's money laundering and fraud Mueller has increasingly dug into Trump's money laundering and fraud

Top White House aides are pushing back on a new book from former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey that depicts President Donald Trump as unethical and "untethered to the truth".

Answering a journalist's question, whether he spoke with trump on Tuesday, sessions said, "Not today".

The president's renewed public anger at special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein was prompted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, who acknowledged paying $130,000 to Daniels, a porn actress, to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump.

President Donald Trump on Friday night announced he has directed the US military to conduct precision strikes in Syria, after the chemical weapons attack that left dozens dead on Sunday.

Nervous White House aides expressed new fears about the president's unpredictability in the face of the Cohen raid, which he viewed as an assault on a longtime defender and a sign that Mueller's probe into potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign was "going too far".

Trump is still expected to travel to his Mar-a-Lago holiday home in Florida on Monday, where a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will go ahead.

But Trump also called out embattled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions, is under consideration by the President to be fired in a potential effort to put greater limits on Mueller. "A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!" the president blasted on Twitter amid news that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had seized documents pertaining to his dealings with Cohen. "The last time I jokingly said that, the papers started saying 'he's got despotic tendencies!' No, I'm not looking to do it, unless you want to do it".

That prompted Democratic members of Congress to push for Mueller to be protected.

Trump has said he didn't know about payments Daniels, which, according to media reports, is cooperating with Federal investigators.

Lawmakers Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte demanded Rosenstein produce memos from former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, which may prove an impossible request.

But sources inside the White House have told CNN they have never seen the President so furious, and they sense something felt different this time.

"We are continuing to asses [sic] intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies", Sanders said on Thursday.

Vice-President Mike Pence will represent the United States in Lima, his aide Jarrod Agen said, adding that the former lawmaker would also meet Venezuelan dissidents.
