Trump dodges question on whether he has worked for Russian Federation

Schumer said given Deripaska's potential involvement with Manafort, and since special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump's ties with Russian Federation has not yet concluded, "It's all the more reason these sanctions must remain in place".

And Trump's former presidential campaign chair, Paul Manafort, has been convicted in one case brought by Mueller and pleaded guilty in another, over financial crimes related to his work in Ukraine before the 2016 campaign, and for witness tampering.

A White House spokesman told the Post that the Trump administration has looked to "improve the relationship with Russia" after the Obama administration "pursued a flawed "reset" policy that sought engagement for the sake of engagement". Large swaths of the government have been shut down for weeks while Trump and Democrats in Congress remain at an impasse over money for the border wall. "I couldn't care less". "And they're not.

The unusual attempts at secrecy did not appear to concern a pair of top congressional Republicans, who downplayed the matter as part of an unconventional strategy employed by an equally unconventional president. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president's own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

The FBI had also began looking into whether Mr. Trump had obstructed justice when he fired Comey, an aspect of the investigation that was already widely known.

On Sunday, Cruz told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the media's focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's campaign to disrupt the 2016 US presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital.
