2, it is 4:14 am. the special counsel investigating russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is reportedly investigating president trump for possible obstruction of justice and it stems from the firing of fbi chief james comey who testified that he believed he was fired because he refused to end the criminal investigation into the former national security advisor michael flynn. it says that special counsel robert mueller will interview the director of national intelligence ahead of the national security agency the and others. in the meantime, the new federal court ruling opens the possibility that the dakota excise -- dakota access pipelines may be set down in the survey by the arnie -- army corps of engineers was not adequate without considering the impact on the food supply of the sioux tribe. the judge has ordered the corps
