Trump lashes out over dual reports on relationship with Russian Federation

Trump responded to the reporting in a phone interview with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, tweeted on Sunday that his committee tried to subpoena the interpreter who, according to the Post, Trump attempted to silence. Not even classified detailed records exist to document Trump and Putin's conversations. The overall investigation is looking into Russian election interference and whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russians, as well as possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Cruz went on to defend President Donald Trump's stance on Russian Federation as being "tougher" than his predecessor Barack Obama.

Contacted by Fox, U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, confirmed his questions to former FBI General Counsel James A. Baker uncovered the claims, some of which were first reported Friday by the New York Times.

In Saturday's interview, Trump avoided giving a direct answer when asked if he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation.

Ted Cruz Won't Rule Out Future Support For White Supremacist Steve King
Facing backlash, King sought to clarify his statements Thursday, calling himself simply a "nationalist" and attempting to separate himself from people who "support this evil and bigoted ideology".

The report about Trump's meetings with Putin follows a Friday report from The New York Times that the F.B.I. opened an investigation into whether or not Trump was acting on Russia's behalf after Trump fired former F.B.I. director James Comey in 2017.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting", he said.

"If you compare objectively President Trump's policies to Russia compared to President Obama's policies to Russia, by any measure, President Obama was much easier, much more gentle on Russia", Cruz said.

He said he had talked in Helsinki to the Russian leader "like every president does" and that they had had a "great" conversation about "very positive things" such as the economy. Trump took possession of his interpreter's notes after a 2017 meeting in Hamburg and instructed the linguist not to discuss the matter with other administration officials, the Post said, citing current and former US officials.

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

Jordan told Vibe magazine in December he hoped Travis Scott , also rumoured as a performer at the time, wouldn't participate for the same reason.

A separate source said Baker told investigators the internal FBI debate over the president's decision to fire Comey on May 9, 2017, included personnel who have since left the bureau for cause, retired, or have been demoted.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and views it as an attempt to besmirch the legitimacy of his presidency.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin last week defended the decision, saying the companies are undergoing a major restructuring to "sever Deripaska's control and significantly diminish his ownership".

In an interview for CBS News' "Face the Nation" set to air Sunday, Pompeo declined to engage in a serious discussion on the report when host Margaret Brennan asked for his reaction. He saids Deripaska himself and any companies he controls remain under sanctions.

This alleged investigation was eventually merged into the Mueller investigation. Deripaska has figured into the investigation due to his ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
