Trump blasts FBI probe into whether he worked for Russia

President Donald Trump on Saturday said the idea that he ever worked for Russian Federation was "insulting", and he slammed a New York Times article regarding his potential ties to Russian Federation as "the most insulting article".

"I would. I don't care", said Trump about revealing details of the discussion. "The other extreme is that the President is completely innocent, and we discussed that too", Baker told House investigators past year.

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russian Federation engaged in a campaign of hacking and propaganda to sway voters during the vote, largely aimed at bolstering Trump's chances at the presidency.

As a result, USA officials told the Post, there exists "no detailed record, even in classified files", of Trump's meetings with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years.

John Delaney, a Maryland Democrat who has announced a run for the White House, called Trump's behavior toward Russian Federation "highly suspicious", adding, "We haven't had a president who has been as supportive of Vladimir Putin in decades". They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

Robert Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed special counsel soon after Comey's firing.

"Trump continued in a quartet of follow up tweets, ".the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey's poor leadership and the way he handled the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of powers from the Justice Department). Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CBS' "Face the Nation" that any notion the president was a threat to US security "is absolutely ludicrous".

Asked whether he'd like Congress to investigate the matter, including potentially calling the president's translator to testify, McCarthy said, "I'd like the president to be able to build these relationships". The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

Cruz, who sits on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, said he will consider any evidence provided but isn't going to base his decisions on "unsubstantiated media reports".

On Sunday, congressional Democrats said the steps Trump took to keep his conversations secret brought forth uncomfortable questions about the relations between the two men and why the USA president echoed some of Putin's positions. "Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times he had no knowledge of the inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they hadn't heard anything, apparently "they found nothing".

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

Their statement follows Trump's comments in a Fox News Channel interview in which he alleges potential legal problems involving a Cohen relative and takes digs at Cohen's honesty and own legal woes.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

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