Today's filings could be significant in what it says about president trumps closest advisors and also perhaps. About trump himself. For more than a year news from the Robert Mueller investigation is common small groups but that may all change very soon. Court papers expected today could shed light on both Paul metaphor Trump's campaign manager and robber call warrant trumps former lawyer and the work they did for trump. What did metaphor lie about after agreeing to cooperate in the Russian investigation. And did he somehow implicate draw. The other paperwork or call one could explain whether coins cooperation.

On Hillary Clinton and her email scandal Coley was asked about Republican accusations that today he avoided answering several important. Questions. The FBI for understandable reasons doesn't want. Me talking about that details of the investigation that is still ongoing. It began when I was FBI director and so it makes sense that they don't want to limit those details but that's a very teeny part. But what we talked about they'll whole lot of Hillary Clinton team out. Or you. Also earlier today a Trump's current order to Giuliani claimed that metaphor lied about a matter directly related to trump himself. Giuliani says apparently that's why Moeller revoked his agreement with metaphor if this is true that could mean that metaphor would face criminal prosecution related to work that he did for trial.
