Graham: 'I don't care' if Trump told McGahn to fire Mueller

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman says she believes the Trump administration destroyed evidence that was supposed to be handed over to special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his Russia investigation.

Manigault Newman, who departed the Trump administration in December 2017, said she was instructed to leave documents related to the Trump campaign and transition by then-White House chief of staff John Kelly upon her exit. She claimed the instruction was a “clear directive” she and others were given to keep all documents concerning Mueller’s investigation.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former senior White House official has accused the White House administration of destroying several boxes of evidence that should have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation . Manigault Newman explained how she was instructed.

“I think it’s important to realize that very early on in the administration, we got letters directing us to preserve all information related to the Mueller investigation ― all investigations, any information, any emails, any correspondence,” Manigault Newman said during an interview Saturday with Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC.

“So I thought it was very interesting that after my discussion with ... Kelly in the [White House] Situation Room when I went to take my things, I was instructed that I had to leave seven boxes of documents that came from the campaign, the inauguration, the transition, and they would not allow me to get them,” Manigault Newman said.

Manigault Newman said she doesn’t believe the Trump administration provided Mueller’s team with the boxes. According to an email exchange with members of the administration, only two of the boxes out of the seven were referenced. She said that “leads me to believe that they’ve destroyed the other five.”

Barr says he didn't review underlying evidence of Mueller report before making obstruction call

Barr says he didn't review underlying evidence of Mueller report before making obstruction call Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that he did not review the underlying evidence in special counsel Robert Mueller's report before he concluded that Mueller's findings did not reach the threshold to charge President Trump with obstructing justice. Barr described this approach as a standard practice in which officials at the Department of Justice (DOJ) often rely on the characterization of the evidence uncovered in an investiga tion. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

She said she’s “not the only one” who had such an experience, and suggested the Trump administration destroyed even more documents.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.

Mueller wrapped up the Russia investigation in March. His team did not find sufficient evidence showing criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election. Mueller did not, however, clear Trump of obstruction of justice. Attorney General William Barr says he determined that there is insufficient evidence to prove an obstruction crime, but Democrats argue that Mueller's report, which outlines 10 instances of possible obstruction, leaves it up to Congress to investigate and decide.
