Protesters rally before Trump and Putin's Helsinki meeting

Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), the chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, told The New Yorker that his first act will be to create a subcommittee tasked with investigating Trump.

But it held off on opening an investigation until the president sacked Comey, who refused to pledge allegiance to Trump and roll back the nascent Russian Federation investigation.

U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly took active measures to hide what was discussed in meetings with Russia President Vladimir Putin, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

The Washington Post said that it remained unclear whether Trump took away the recordings of translators in other cases, however, according to officials, they did not manage to get a reliable report on the two-hour meeting of the two presidents in Helsinki.

Trump responded to the reporting in a phone interview with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night. I'm not keeping anything under wraps....

Donald Trump has said he "couldn't care less" after a series of bombshell reports over the weekend shed further light on his relationship with Vladimir Putin.

The Times reported that FBI agents and some top officials became suspicious of Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign but didn't launch an investigation at that time because they weren't sure how to approach such a sensitive and important probe, according to the unnamed officials.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the report "outrageously inaccurate" and said that Trump has taken a stricter line on Russian Federation than his predecessors.

Trump faced widespread criticism following the Helsinki summit from both Democrats and Republicans, with his performance at a press conference alongside Putin - in which he sided with Moscow over his own government's assertion that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, and heaped praise on the Russian Federation strongman - roundly condemned by allies and critics alike.




I had a conversation like every president does.

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

"Anybody could listen to that meeting, that meeting is open for grabs", Trump added.

The spokesman talked to the Post on the condition of anonymity and said that following the 2017 Hamburg meeting that included Tillerson, the former secretary of state "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".

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, called the Times report "absurd" and said Comey was sacked for being "a disgraced partisan hack".

"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, but certainly the last three or four presidents, modern day presidents".

Trump also took aim at an earlier story in The New York Times stating that the FBI launched a previously undisclosed counterintelligence investigation to determine whether he posed a national security threat, at the same time that it opened a criminal probe into possible obstruction of justice.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

The Post's report comes as special counsel Robert Mueller continues to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election - and whether there were any ties between the Kremlin and Trump campaign associates.
