"I couldn't care less", Trump said.

The New York Times reported Friday that law enforcement officials had investigated whether the President was working on behalf of Russian Federation against USA interests.

Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russian Federation sought to install through what United States intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

He slammed the Times story as "the most insulting article I've ever had written and if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing".

The leaders spoke for about three hours, and then-U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the U.S. interpreter were present for the meeting, as well as Russian Foreign Minster Sergei Lavrov and Putin's translator.

The Trump administration "has imposed significant new sanctions in response to Russian malign activities", said the spokesman, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and noted that Tillerson in 2017 "gave a fulsome readout of the meeting immediately afterward to other USA officials in a private setting, as well as a readout to the press".

'It was a great insult, and the New York Times is a disaster as a paper, ' Trump said. We had a great conversation, we were talking about Israel and securing Israel and lots of other things and it was a great conversation.

The revelation, reported by the Washington Post on Saturday, came a day after it was revealed the FBI had investigated whether Trump has been working on behalf of Russian Federation, against U.S. interests.

Mr Trump's relations with Russian Federation before his election in 2016 are the subject of an ongoing federal investigation.

Trump then repeated claims he had made in a tweet earlier that day, saying: "And I can tell you this, if you ask the folks in Russian Federation, I've been tougher on Russian Federation than anybody else, any other ― probably any other president period".

The club paid that last season and will be due to pay the same amount this season - but only if Coutinho is still at the club. He has lost his place in the side to Arturo Vidal and Ousmane Dembele now appear to be ahead of him in the pecking order.


"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked".

It's unclear whether Trump has taken interpreters' notes on more than one occasion, but several officials told The Post they never received a reliable readout from Trump and Putin's meeting in Helsinki in July 2018, which no Cabinet officials or Trump aides attended.

Trump went on to call Comey a liar and place the investigation at the feet of former FBI agents Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok. The FBI was concerned President Trum could be actively working for Russian Federation.

Trump added that the Times was a disaster as a newspaper.

"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!", Mr Trump tweeted.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt" and views it as an attempt to besmirch the legitimacy of his presidency.

Trump's ex-national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his Moscow ties.

Mueller has indicted 33 people, including members of Russia's GRU military intelligence, and chalked up convictions against some of the president's close associates.

Trump's former presidential campaign chairman, 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.
