Trump lashes out at media, Justice Department

 There are also questions about what will be included in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation and what that could mean for the White House.

 “They have to be fully staffed up with very high quality lawyers. Instead they’ve lost three of the White House Council’s deputies. A fourth one will leave tomorrow. It’s a very difficult situation given what could be down the road,” said former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance.
