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

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was Central Intelligence Agency director at the time the investigation was launched, declined to comment on the New York Times report, but insisted in an interview with CBS that "the notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous". There have already been concerns by special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump's firing of Comey constituted an act of obstruction of justice.

"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!"

He added, "I have been FAR tougher on Russian Federation than Obama, Bush or Clinton".

"I'm not keeping anything under wraps, I couldn't care less".

She pointed out that the investigation was looking into whether the president was "actively working for Russia" and asked, "Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?"

"James Comey was sacked because he's a disgraced partisan hack, and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the FBI", Sanders said. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

"I have concluded that the Treasury Department's proposal is flawed and fails to sufficiently limit Oleg Deripaska's control and influence of these companies and the Senate should move to block this misguided effort by the Trump Administration and keep these sanctions in place", Schumer said in a news release.




A new report in The Washington Post said Trump went to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin even from high-ranking officials in his own administration.

After a G-20 meeting in Hamburg in July 2017, the president took possession of his interpreter's notes and instructed the linguist "not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials", the Post reported, citing current and former USA officials.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the Post's report "inaccurate" in a statement. The report cited unnamed current and former USA officials.

The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee has disputed President Donald Trump's claim that he's been tougher on Russian Federation than any recent president.

In the Fox News interview, Trump questioned why the newspaper made such a "big deal" out of his discussions with Putin in Helsinki last summer. 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. "Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

By May 2017, both Comey and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page told House investigators past year that by the time the Federal Bureau of Investigation director was sacked and special counsel appointed, there was no hard evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. "It's pretty much up to him in terms of who he wants to read into his conversations with world leaders", Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union".

White House aides expressed regret that the president did not more clearly and forcefully deny being a Russian agent when asked by the usually friendly Fox News host, according to three White House aides and Republicans close to the White House.
