Ariél Zangla reports in The Daily Freeman that U.S. Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) predicts President Donald Trump will not interfere in the ongoing federal investigation into whether Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. “I certainly don’t expect interference,” from the White House, Faso said in a phone interview Oct. 31. Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation should proceed, and “let the chips fall where they may,” Faso said. On Oct. 30 Mueller indicted Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, and Manafort business partner Rick Gates. The arrest of former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, was also released to the public Oct. 30.
