Trump dodges question on whether he has worked for Russian Federation

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

Schumer says it's important the sanctions remain in place while the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation proceeds.

Ratcliffe said he was surprised to read Friday's New York Times report, which quoted part of his Baker interview, and reported that after the Comey firing "law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president's behavior" that they began investigating whether Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation.

The president also pointed out that the miscreants involved in the counterintelligence investigation were eventually fired themselves.

As the Mueller investigation nears an apparent end, Democratic Senator Mark Warner told CNN that the question of whether Trump ever worked on the Russians' behalf is central - the probe's "defining question".

"I would, I don't care", the president told Pirro.

"I mean, I had a conversation like every president does". "Anyone could have listened to that meeting". "That meeting is open for grabs".

"Why is he so chummy with Vladimir Putin, this man who is a former KGB agent, never been a friend to the United States, invaded our allies, threatens us around the world, and tries his damndest to undermine our elections, why is this President Trump's best buddy?"

Coons said, "That was a concerning, even alarming report".

What did the Washington Post report?

Last summer, the committee released preliminary findings of its investigation, including the allegation that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an "extensive and sophisticated" public relations campaign to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton while sowing discord on social media.

Citing current and former US officials, the paper said that on at least one occasion, in Hamburg in 2017, Trump took away his interpreter's notes following talks and instructed that person not to discuss what had transpired with other officials.

In Helsinki, the two presidents spoke behind closed doors for two hours with only their interpreters present.

The president had nothing new to offer on the government shutdown or border wall dispute, as the Democrats have not been "acting responsibly", he said.

Trump has repeatedly denounced the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt", denying any collusion with Russia's attempt to sway the 2016 election.

It has already put some of Mr Trump's closest associates in the dock.

The lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison for multiple crimes, including felony violations of campaign finance laws that prosecutors allege were carried out under Trump's direction. The interpreter revealed only that Mr. Trump replied "I believe you" when Putin denied meddling in the US elections, according to the Post.
