US President Donald Trump has denied hiding details of conversations with Russia's Vladimir Putin, saying he is "not keeping anything under wraps".

Republican lawmakers generally defended the president, saying he had been tougher on Russian Federation than his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, but some had questions.

"I'm in the White House, and a lot of them are in different locations".

The Post reported that Trump has gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide details of his conversations with Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials.

"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!" "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", he said when asked if he has ever worked for Russian Federation.

It's going to continue to change. "You have got guys like Kawhi Leonard, guys like "Greek Freak" standing in their way". But Ainge remains focused on the big picture of things, noting that this is hardly uncommon for a team.

"Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?"Jeanine Pirro of Fox News asked him in an interview Saturday".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the Post's report "inaccurate" in a statement. "You watch", he said.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., defended the president, who he said was "burned earlier by leaks of other private conversations". "I don't get it".

Though the Baker interview was conducted behind closed doors, in an unclassified setting, as part of a joint Republican-led House committee investigation into FBI and DOJ actions during the 2016 campaign, multiple congressional sources said it has been with the Justice Department and FBI for review before a public release.

US Congress passed a bill Thursday to compensate them when the government reopens, but there was worries now that could take a while.

Steve King questions why terms like 'white supremacist' are racist
Justin Amash of MI said: "This is an embrace of racism, and it has no place in Congress or anywhere". Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced Wednesday that he will run against King, a Republican from Kiron.

The US president has repeatedly described the inquiry as "a witch hunt".

"I do think it's curious that throughout that whole summer when these investigations started, you had (Russian President) Vladimir Putin's policies nearly being parroted by Donald Trump", Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, said on the CNN "State of the Union" program. Anybody could have listened to that meeting.

Investigators led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller are trying to establish whether there was any collusion between Mr Trump's campaign team and the Russian state to help get him elected. Deripaska has figured into the investigation due to his ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his Moscow ties. And the investigation was whether you were actively working for Russian Federation or unwittingly.

A Democratic congressional leader on Sunday questioned why Trump has a habit of being friendly with Putin. The story reframes the focus and goal of the investigation now headed by Robert Mueller.
