Trump Accused of Keeping Details of Putin Talks Secret

Trump Accused of Keeping Details of Putin Talks Secret

President Trump addressed the Post's reporting during an on-air phone call with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro and denied the allegations. Pirro asked at one point, referring to the Times' reporting that Trump's firing of then-FBI Director James Comey led to an FBI probe of whether Trump was working for Russian Federation. 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.

"If you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing", he said.

Trump never answered Pirro directly, but went on to assert that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has.

"This is just at odds with how presidents have conducted diplomacy for decades and decades in the United States", said Washington Post reporter Greg Miller in a Sunday interview with NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro on Weekend Edition. The three spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations.

President Donald Trump has avoided giving a direct answer when asked if he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation after a published report said his behavior gave federal law enforcement officials reason to begin investigating whether he had worked for the us adversary.

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

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 been trying to play up his presence at the White House during the standoff as a sign that it's Democrats who won't negotiate a deal. "I like that symbol because I am ready to sign". "Using that act would be, in this instance, would be far larger act than has ever occurred in the past".

By Sunday night, a blanket of snow in Washington seemed to provide a calming backdrop for the discontented president.

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 most recently made the claim following a published report that his behavior in the early months of his presidency gave federal law enforcement officials reason to begin investigating whether he had worked for Russian Federation against American interests. The FBI also considered whether the Republican president's firing of Mr Comey amounted to obstruction of justice.

In the inquiry, counterintelligence investigators sought to evaluate whether Trump was a potential threat to national security.

"Trump continued in a quartet of follow up tweets, ".the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey's poor leadership and the way he handled the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of powers from the Justice Department). "It suggests to me that the Mueller investigation needs to continue to its logical conclusion". The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

"Every time Trump meets with Putin, the country is told nothing".
