No "final decision" yet on Syria response, White House says

As White House roils over Trump investigation Republicans in Congress try to ignore the chaos

The White House said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump has not laid out timetable for action in response to a suspected chemical attack in Syria, despite his note on Twitter that missiles "will be coming" and Russian Federation should "get ready".

On Monday, it was revealed that Mueller referred federal prosecutors to obtain a search warrant on Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

"Russia vows to shoot down all missiles fired at Syria".

At the House hearing, Democrats grilled Mattis on the wisdom and legality of Trump ordering an attack on Syria without explicit authorization from Congress. Mattis argued it would be justified as an act of self-defense, with 2,000 US ground troops in Syria; he insisted he could not talk about military plans because an attack "is not yet in the offing". He says it is "Very calm and calculated". I think it's great.

Trump tweeted Tuesday that "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

Trump's tweets come following a slew of updates to Mueller's case.

On Tuesday, Trump lashed out at reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid centering on his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Monday, telling reporters at the White House that it was a "disgraceful situation" and "an attack on our country" and "what we all stand for". In an interview with Newsweek this week, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright accused Trump of strengthening dictators overseas and of a "lack of democratic instinct of any kind".

Researchers studying alcohol consumption and mortality have advised countries like the US slash their drinking guidelines . The study, which was on Friday, was based on the health data of almost 600 thousand alcohol drinkers from 19 countries.

He also speculated about the position of his Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein.

Cohen has said he took out a personal line of credit on his home to pay Daniels days before the 2016 election and without Trump's knowledge.

"The president has said, though, what he was going to do".

Sanders also declined to say whether there were specific plans for the White House to seek congressional approval for a strike in Syria as some lawmakers have pushed. He describes Trump as fixated in the early days of his administration on having the Federal Bureau of Investigation debunk salacious rumors he insisted were untrue but could distress his wife. No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back), so now they do the Unthinkable, and RAID a lawyers office for information! BAD!

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

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. "The investigation is critical to the health of our democracy, and must be allowed to continue".
