The Times reported that FBI agents and some top officials became suspicious of Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign but didn't open an investigation at that time because they weren't sure how to approach such a sensitive probe.

The statement echoes one she gave Friday night about a New York Times report that the FBI opened a counter-intelligence investigation into the President following the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

President Trump said the question was the most insulting thing he's ever been asked and proceeded to slam fired officials from the bureau who led the initial investigation. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written and if you read the [New York Times] article you see that they found absolutely nothing". "Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president's own actions constituted a possible threat to national security", the Times wrote.

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.

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.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said the report "may well suggest what it was that helped start this investigation in the first place".

Current and former U.S. officials told the paper that Trump's efforts include confiscating the notes from his interpreter and not allowing them to discuss the details of the meetings with other officials in his administration.

Officials also told the Post that they never received a full, detailed account of Trump's meeting with Putin in Helsinki in July 2018.

The Post reported that the USA interpreter present at the official Hamburg meeting was approached by other administration officials seeking more information about what the two leaders discussed.

On Thursday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin insisted that the Trump administration would keep tight control on companies linked to Deripaska, despite the decision to ease restrictions. When it comes to Bob Mueller and the Russian Federation investigation, the mainstream media, Washington is obsessed with it. Pirro asked on Saturday.

President Trump attacked the F.B.I.in a series of tweets early Saturday morning. "I do it with all countries".

"I would. I don't care", said Trump about revealing details of the discussion.

'Anybody could have listened to that meeting, it is open for grabs. He also accused the Post of fabricating the report.

And, naturally, the new Subcommittees first action would be investigating whether or not President Trump colluded with Russian Federation.

U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, says his questions uncovered revelations that in May 2017 senior FBI leadership debated whether President Trump was directed by the Russian government to fire FBI Director James Comey.

"I want to find out a little bit more about what happened there", said Senator Ted Cruz, on NBC's "Meet the Press".
