McCarthy: Russia Investigation Has Been About Trump 'From the Beginning'

The US and Russian leaders opened an historic summit in Helsinki with Donald Trump promising an

"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", Trump told Pirro, a personal friend.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union", Johnson noted the president "was burned by leaks in other areas".

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and views it as an attempt to besmirch the legitimacy of his presidency. "And when you get outside of Beltway, I don't find anybody concerned with this at all". Trump's news conference in Helsinki, in which he questioned his own intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 election, prompted bipartisan criticism. As the senator from IL said, "It's within his power to hold these investigations, and he should".

Ratcliffe said he was surprised to read Friday's New York Times report, which quoted part of his Baker interview, and reported that after the Comey firing "law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president's behavior" that they began investigating whether Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president's own actions constituted a possible threat to national security.

On Sunday, Cruz told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the media's focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's campaign to disrupt the 2016 USA presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital.

Uri Day 3 in overseas
Today, the talented actor hosted a special screening at a popular studio in Mumbai and several celebs marked their presence. The film collected Rs 3.5 crore on the day of its release, taking its collection so far to around Rs 7 crore.


Speaking to Fox News' Jeanine Pirro, Trump denied the reporting and said, "you'd see that they found absolutely nothing".

U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, says his questions uncovered revelations that in May 2017 senior FBI leadership debated whether President Trump was directed by the Russian government to fire FBI Director James Comey.

"Cohen, who will testify in Congress on February 7, insists that he has never been to Prague, but added in a tweet: "#Mueller knows everything!" "What kind of checks and balances are there?"

Trump has gone to what the Post described as "extraordinary lengths" to keep the specifics of his conversations with his Russian counterpart under wraps.

US officials only learned of Trump's actions when two aides sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout from then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Post said.

Previous year both House and Senate Democrats called on Trump's interpreters to testify on the president's meetings with Putin, including the leaders' July summit in Helsinki.

Ocasio-Cortez criticized after failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's tendency to butt heads with members of her own party, according to a number of lawmakers and aides. Ocasio-Cortez, who is extremely active on social media, has yet to respond to the embarrassing report .


'It was a great insult, and the New York Times is a disaster as a paper, ' Trump said.

As a result, US officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump's face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years.

The Times reported Mueller also took over the counterintelligence investigation, but the paper said it is unclear whether that aspect of his investigation is ongoing.

This post has been updated to reflect that Sen.

In a Fox News op-ed, McCarthy wrote about what he called on Sunday the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department's "flawed analysis".
