Trump blasts FBI probe into whether he worked for Russia Washington Post: Trump concealed details from meetings with Putin

Trump also objected to a report in The Washington Post that said he went to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin even from high-ranking officials in his own administration.

Republican lawmakers generally defended the president, saying he had been tougher on Russian Federation than his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, but some had questions. "They've actually gotten me wrong for many years before that". "He likes to create a personal relationship, build that relationship, even rebuild that relationship like he does with other world leaders", McCarthy said.

"Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, nearly all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!" the president tweeted.

On this weekend's broadcast of "Fox News Sunday", Sen.

The senator's remarks come just days after the New York Times revealed in a report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a secret inquiry into whether Trump was working for the Kremlin after he fired the agency's former director James Comey in 2017.

Simply put: Plan on slippery road conditions. Winter weather advisory in effect
Sunday calls for highs in the mid-30s and overnight lows in the lower 30s with a 50 percent chance of wintry mix then snow. Forecasters expect several inches of snow elsewhere in New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania before the storm ends.

A former senior administration official said a number of top figures in the administration sought in the hours and days after the meeting to find out details of what Trump and Putin had discussed.

Trump went on to attack the "failing" New York Times as "a disaster of a newspaper", adding, "And if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing".

Trump has been trying to play up his presence at the White House during the standoff as a sign that it's Democrats who won't negotiate a deal. "You watch", he said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the report "outrageously inaccurate" and said that Trump has taken a stricter line on Russian Federation than his predecessors. "I don't get it". He and other Democratic senators said this report and others within the past week questioning Trump's behavior toward Russian Federation give new urgency to the need for the Mueller investigation to be allowed to run its course.

"We just thought, if we're going to do something relevant in this era where Congress is going to reassert itself, where there are so many questionable activities of this Administration vis-à-vis foreign policy, that it made sense to have this", Engel told The New Yorker. "Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

US Colonel Sean Ryan, a coalition spokesman, said the coalition "has begun the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria". Trump unexpectedly announced last month that US forces would be leaving Syria , causing confusion and concern among USA allies.

There have already been concerns by special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump's firing of Comey constituted an act of obstruction of justice.

The businessman, who has close ties to the Kremlin, also had ties with Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, documents have showed.

The ex-national security advisor, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his Moscow ties.

This alleged investigation was eventually merged into the Mueller investigation.

The president also hinted that the Russian Federation collusion "hoax" would soon backfire badly on the perpetrators, including some individuals whom he didn't identify because it would make "front page news" if he did.
