Former Trump Lawyer Responds To Report Of FBI Counterintelligence Probe

Posted January 15, 2019

"Not only did I never work for Russian Federation, I think it's a disgrace that you even asked that question because it's a whole big fat hoax", Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to Louisiana.

President Donald Trump's former attorney John Dowd told Fox News" Brian Kilmeade that he believes the president is facing a "coup' and the recent reports regarding the president's relationship with Russian Federation prove that.

Warner spoke on CNN's "State of the Union" and Coons on "Fox News Sunday".

"It's been many months since Helsinki, and we still don't know what Putin and Trump talked about", Engel said, referencing Trump's bilateral meeting with the Russian strongman past year and the subsequent press conference, during which Trump appeared to accept Putin's denial of election meddling over the assessment of American intelligence agencies.

"I'm not keeping anything under wraps, I couldn't care less".

"Will they join us now?"

President Donald Trump listens as he leads a roundtable discussion on border security with local leaders, Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington.

The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee has disputed President Donald Trump's claim that he's been tougher on Russian Federation than any recent president.

Reports have suggested that lawyers for the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees will evaluate on Monday whether to subpoena the interpreters who were present during Trump's private meetings with Putin. "Shouldn't we find out whether our president is really putting 'America first?'"

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders criticized the Times' report.

"So the questions I get are not about the latest obsession and allegations about Russia, Russia, Russia".

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

Trump took a jab at Senate Foreign Relations ranking member Robert Menendez, who was photographed over the weekend on a Puerto Rican beach as a quarter of the federal government was closed.

Democrats, on the other hand, have contended that, while subpoenaing interpreters would indeed be unprecedented, Trump's own actions justify it. "Trump's actions are unprecedented in a way that harms national security", Democratic Representative Bill Pascrell Jr.

And Trump's former presidential campaign chair, Paul Manafort, has been convicted in one case brought by Mueller and pleaded guilty in another, over financial crimes related to his work in Ukraine before the 2016 campaign, and for witness tampering.

Page explained, "The "waiting on" was an indecision and a cautiousness on the part of the bureau with respect to what to do and whether there was sufficient predication to open", but Trump's supporters claim this was evidence that the FBI had it in for Trump from the start. CNN reported that the intended recipients were two pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs.

Starr, the Clinton-era independent counsel, said on Outnumbered Overtime that he was shocked the FBI would conduct such an investigation.
