GOP Shrugs Off Report That Trump Concealed Details Of Putin Meetings

Duchess of Sussex shortlisted for Time magazine's 'Person of the Year'- along with Trump and Putin

"This is just at odds with how presidents have conducted diplomacy for decades and decades in the United States", said Washington Post reporter Greg Miller in a Sunday interview with NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro on Weekend Edition.

The FBI opened an investigation into whether US President Donald Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russian Federation, according to the New York Times.

In their message to Trump, the chairmen of the Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight committees say: "Our nation's laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress". There have already been concerns by special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump's firing of Comey constituted an act of obstruction of justice.

'I'm not going to talk about what we may have been briefed in "the Gang of Eight" when these investigations opened, but I do think it's curious that throughout that whole summer when these investigations started, you had Vladimir Putin policies nearly being parroted by Donald Trump, ' Warner said.

"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", Trump responded.

"Are you now, or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?" "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written, and if you read the article you'll see that they found absolutely nothing".

During a phone interview on "Justice with Judge Jeanine", Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday evening that the stories were "all nonsense".

The New York Times said FBI officials became suspicious of Mr Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign but held off on opening an investigation until Mr Trump tied his dismissal of Mr Comey to a probe into allegations of election meddling by Russian Federation.

Tennis Clinical Kei Nishikori into Brisbane International final

President Donald Trump has taken drastic measures to hide his private conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a report in the Washington Post on Saturday.

Trump has expressed bafflement that he is not getting more credit for largely staying put during the shutdown. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, tweeted on Sunday that his committee tried to subpoena the interpreter who, according to the Post, Trump attempted to silence.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the report showed that the FBI leadership "opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof" after he had fired Comey.

The spokesman talked to the Post on the condition of anonymity and said that following the 2017 Hamburg meeting that included Tillerson, the former secretary of state "gave a fulsome readout of the meeting immediately afterward to other USA officials in a private setting, as well as a readout to the press". "Anyone could have listened to that meeting".

Whatever the facts, Democrats are eyeing a major dust-up and a chance to spend floor time blasting President Trump over allegations of election conspiracy with the Russians, along with the opportunity to make GOP lawmakers take a vote either defending or implicitly condemning the president.

"You sit with the president of various countries", Trump said. "And what I want to do is make sure how could the Federal Bureau of Investigation do that?"
