HE TIMELINE FOR THE TRUMP ADMIN. --- THINGS TO INVESTIGATE
Washington (CNN)This is a timeline of what is known about President Donald Trump's actions regarding the Russia investigation -- from conversations and comments, to tweets and meetings. CNN has reported that special counsel Robert Mueller plans to interview three top intelligence officials about their interactions with Trump as part of the early stages of what could become an obstruction investigation. The Washington Post reported on Wednesday night that Mueller is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice.
November 13, 2016: For the first time after the election, President-elect Trump weighs in publicly about the job security of FBI Director James Comey. Trump tells CBS News he respects Comey but hasn't made up his mind. Trump says he "would like to talk to him before" deciding.
January 6, 2017: Top US intelligence officials brief Trump about Russian meddling in the election. After that finishes, Comey stays behind for a one-on-one meeting to tell Trump about a dossier by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele containing salacious allegations. At some point, Trump tells Comey that he hopes Comey will stay on as FBI director, and at some point before Comey leaves, Trump's aides make it clear that Trump won't ask him to step down, according to The New York Times. Something happens during this meeting that compels Comey to immediately write a memo about the encounter upon leaving Trump Tower.
