Trump denies urging former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief to drop Flynn inquiry

19 May 2017, 08:35 | Rodolfo Wallace

"We need a great director of the FBI", Trump said.

Brimming with resentment, President Donald Trump fervently denied on Thursday that his campaign had collaborated with Russian Federation or that he'd tried to kill an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of the issue, contending that "even my enemies" recognize his innocence and declaring himself the most unfairly hounded president in history.

In late March, former national security adviser Michael Flynn's lawyer said Flynn would agree to testify before Congress about his controversial connections to Russian Federation only if he were promised immunity from prosecution.

He later reiterated: "There was no collusion, and everybody - even my enemies have said, there is no collusion".

Trump said Thursday he thought firing Comey would be a popular decision because he'd been criticised by Democrats and Republicans alike for his handling of an investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. "And then on top of that, after the Wednesday performance by Director Comey, you had a person come and have to readjust the record, which many people have never seen before, because there were misstatements made".

Rosenstein appointed Mueller in an order giving him broad authority to pursue the investigation into Russian meddling, including "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump".

No indication yet from Flynn on subpoena
Flynn finally registered in March, acknowledging his work could have benefited the government of Turkey. Typically, certifications against sitting executive branch officials have been made to the U.S.

Without directly confirming the details of their conversation, Lavrov said he didn't understand what the "secret" was since the USA introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some West Asian countries two months ago.

Trump, including one in which the president allegedly asked him to drop a probe of Flynn. "He is a good guy". "I hope you can let this go", referring to the inquiry into Flynn's actions.

"You get a lot of comments where people say, 'I hear you that you're concerned - now what are you going to do about it?'" Sanford said.

"I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so that we can focus on our agenda, which is deregulations, tax reform and repealing and replacing Obamacare", McConnell told Bloomberg TV on Tuesday.

When Santos was asked if he had any suggestions for Trump on how to weather bad press, he demurred. "He can take care of himself", Santos said.
