Trump Lawyer Calls for End to Russia Investigation after McCabe Firing

(From Politico)

President Donald Trump’s lawyer on Saturday called on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to shutter special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s influence over the 2016 election.

“I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier,” said John Dowd, as first reported by the Daily Beast.

He initially told the news outlet that he was speaking in his official capacity as Trump’s lawyer. But he later retracted that statement, telling POLITICO he was commenting in his personal capacity.
