Ledgett presents his memo

According to sources, the investigators have also met with former NSA Deputy Director Richard Ledgett. Ledgett had in his possession documents containing details of the discussion in which President Trump allegedly told Rogers to help get the FBI off the Russia probe.

According to Tuesday’s report of The Washington’s Post, the objective of the meetings was to find out if the Trump hindered an FBI probe by telling his former FBI director James Comey to halt the investigations into Michael Flynn, Trumps former national security adviser.

According to CNN’s sources, Mueller’s team is gathering facts that may suggest Trump’s interference in the FBI investigation.

The meetings depict commitment on the part of Mueller’s newly assembled team. However, Mueller will decide if there is sufficient evidence to pursue charges on any part of the probe.

Any incriminating charges against Trump would have to face the Justice department, who are strongly against indicting a sitting President. However, the ultimate decision would be made by Congress.
