President Trump Embraces American Flag Before CPAC Speech

President Trump Embraces American Flag Before CPAC Speech

President Donald Trump announced to CPAC on Saturday he would sign an executive order requiring colleges and universities getting federal research money to support free speech, after inviting the conservative activist assaulted last week in Berkeley up to speak during his address.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to lead the special counsel investigation back in May 2017.

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a speech at the conference on Friday, accusing Democrats of making a "hard left turn" before the 2020 elections and saying voters must choose "between freedom and socialism".

President Donald Trump attacked Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation in a speech to conservative supporters on Saturday, calling the probe "bullsh-" and claiming the special counsel was biased against him.

"Russia, please if you can, get us Hillary Clinton's emails", Trump said jokingly, referring to being mocked for saying Russian Federation should find the former Democratic presidential nominee's emails during the campaign.

In a book proposal he sent to publishers in early 2018 - before he was sentenced to three years in prison, partly for crimes related to his work for President Trump - the attorney promised a glowing picture of the real estate billionaire. The White House has not yet released any further details on Trump's forthcoming order, and the timeline for the action remains unclear.

Noting that "you put the wrong people in a couple of positions, " Trump added: "And they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there and all of a sudden they are trying to take you out with [expletive], OK?"

Their efforts increased this past week after Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, appeared before two House committees and a Senate committee.

"And you know that, and we can name every one of them if you want", he said.

Trump also took aim at the Democrats' Green New Deal, a policy proposal floated by some liberal Democrats in Congress and backed to varying degrees by several of the party's 2020 presidential candidates. "Here is the good news", Trump said.

"There is a likelihood President Trump violated that law when he submitted these financial disclosure forms that were either missing liabilities or misrepresenting them", said Amey, of the Project on Government Oversight.

Indeed, for years university administrators have been accused of stifling free speech.

Mr Schiff said the committee would hear from Felix Sater, a Russia-born executive who worked with Mr Cohen on an ultimately unsuccessful deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, in an open hearing on March 14.

Headlines this week were filled with stories about the North Korea summit, Michael Cohen and more.

Trump still painted the summit as "very productive".
