FBI opened investigation on Trump working on behalf of Russian Federation

FBI opened investigation on Trump working on behalf of Russian Federation

Things got interesting when Pirro asked about recent reports from The New York Times and Washington Post. Trump continued attacking Comey saying that the "FBI was in complete turmoil" with Comey leading it. Trump even said that Comey "was a crooked cop". "It suggests to me that the Mueller investigation needs to continue to its logical conclusion".

'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", he said.

Mr Comey took to Twitter later on Saturday, offering a quote he attributed to former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt: "I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made". 'I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written'.

The president directly responded to the accusations during an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, pledging transparency about his encounters with Putin, specifically their meeting in Helsinki last summer. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russian Federation sought to install through what USA intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

Trump has defended himself against such reports, arguing, inaccurately, that he has taken a hardline stance against Russian Federation.

The 17-year-old girl was said to have had a 16-year-old male passenger in the truck with her. She then skidded into the other lanes and hit another auto , a light pole and a sound wall.

United were deeper in the second half, but to play against that system it was incredible to create 11 chances in the second half. That may be the case, yet his commanding aura surely had something to do with the Spurs attackers failing to find the mark.

"I just wanted to get out here today and hit some serves, get that match preparation, face some serves", he said. Cilic added: "It took me some time to recover from the emotional end to last season with the Davis Cup".

A Democratic congressional leader on Sunday questioned why Trump has a habit of being friendly with Putin.

"If you compare objectively, President Trump's policies to Russia compared to President Obama's policies to Russia - by any measure, President Obama was much easier, was much more gentler on Russia". Warner accused the White House of being very slow to put in place the penalties.

"Trump continued in a quartet of follow up tweets, ".the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey's poor leadership and the way he handled the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of powers from the Justice Department).

The Post reported that Trump has gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide direct conversations he has had with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The report cited unnamed current and former US officials. The overall investigation is looking into Russian election interference and whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russians, as well as possible obstruction of justice by Trump. "Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

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. The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times he had no knowledge of the counterintelligence inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they hadn't heard anything, apparently "they found nothing".
