Trump met Russian envoy during campaign

Trump met Russian envoy during campaign”

The Trump administration has issued more than 20 denials of contact with Russian officials, stretching back to last summer.

The Washington Post got the ball rolling with a breathless story about Sessions not citing the meetings when asked by Sen.

Obama's intelligence director also said no such action was taken. We know that Trump is angry about many things, but is much of what upsets him of his own making?

If President Trump's antagonists are resisting anything, it is the call to civility - the willingness to agree to disagree but to work within the system.

Turning to the president's appointments at home, Trump earned high marks for the foreign policy and national security team he has put in place.

Seventy-one percent of Democrats said they're "very concerned", while 54 percent of Republicans said they have no concerns about the reports.

"I do not think there's something going on, I think it's just a waste of time and money, no investigations needed".

"At this point, we don't have any evidence of that", said Mr Nunes.

Trump and some Republicans have demanded an investigation into his claims involving Obama and the alleged wiretapping, but there are plenty of questions about that, George Washington University Law School legal analyst Alan Morrison said. Is there any basis for it?

Rarely a day goes by without an exciting new twist in The Russian Connection, the John Le Carré novel none of us signed up for. They capped a week in which the positive reaction to his address to Congress quickly evaporated amid the swirl of allegations and revelations about contacts between Trump aides and a Russian official, both during and after the presidential election that Russia is believed to have meddled in.

Feinstein added that an independent prosecutor was needed to assure the American people that there is not even the appearance of a conflict of interest or political influence. "There are times when special counsels are appropriate, but it is far too soon to tell at this time", he said.

But after Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigations, Trump, reported Costa, was furious and told his aides that Sessions should not have done so and that he, the Department of Justice, and the White House should have stood behind his Attorney General against the "bull".

As things stand, I'm not sure whether an independent counsel is necessary in this case or not.

Someone (possibly Russia) hacked the Democrats' emails. "In the meantime, I will do everything in my power to reasonably ensure that all information concerning my activities related to Russian Federation past year is preserved".

Who in Trump's inner circle doesn't have ties to Russian Federation?

White House officials described the encounter as brief and non-substantive, saying that Mr Trump attended the reception for only five minutes and that multiple foreign ambassadors were present. Very careful notes should be kept of the meeting.
