FBI investigated how Trump’s actions seemed to benefit Russian Federation

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

There has been a confusing and sometimes even alarming tendency on the part of President Trump to complement President Putin and to do things like his abrupt announcement of a withdrawal from Syria that led his own secretary of defense to resign, that has led many of us to question his closeness to and his affinity for President Putin.

The reports, and Trump's harsh criticisms of them, come as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election continues.

Even then, the president avoided directly answering when Pirro asked whether he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation.

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?"

Warner and Johnson spoke on CNN's "State of the Union", while Coons and Graham appeared on "Fox News Sunday".

"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.

Trump has expressed bafflement that he is not getting more credit for largely staying put during the shutdown.

But the White House, and Trump himself, disagree.

President Trump called a recent New York Times article revealing that he had been the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation after he fired former director James Comey "very horrible" and a "great insult".

Trump told Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night that the Times article was "the most insulting" thing ever written about him. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow. "The liberal media has wasted two years trying to manufacture a fake collusion scandal instead of reporting on the fact that unlike President Obama, who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation", she said.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

Warner is a member of the 'Gang of Eight, ' a bipartisan group of senior lawmakers from the House and Senate who receive classified intelligence briefings from the White House.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the report showed that the FBI leadership "opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof" after he had fired Comey. The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle. According to the story, Trump's actions included "taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials", such as former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting", he said of a closed-door, one-on-one meeting with Putin in Helsinki.

Trump began responding to the New York Times report with an angry stream of tweets aimed at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday. "I want to see this wall get built".

"Well, I can't tell you because I don't devote too much time", Trump said, without completing the sentence.
