McCarthy: Russia Investigation Has Been About Trump 'From the Beginning'

Democrats vow to step up investigations amid explosive new reports of Trump and Russia Mueller Is Investigating Trump as a Russian Asset

According to the Post, Trump's alleged behavior is "is at odds with the known practices of previous presidents", who, when meeting with individuals like Putin, for example, "relied on senior aides to witness meetings and take comprehensive notes then shared with other officials and departments".

US officials only learned of Trump's actions when two aides sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout from then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Post said.

Later, at the same G-20 summit, Trump and Putin spoke at a banquet with only Putin's interpreter present.

After that meeting, Trump and Putin held a memorable joint press conference during which Trump doubted US intelligence agencies' conclusions about Russian election interference.

At the same time the FBI opened a probe into President Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice after he fired FBI Director James Comey, counterintelligence agents were investigating why Trump was acting in ways that seemed to benefit Russian Federation, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Johnson speculated that Trump felt "burned earlier by leaks of other private conversations" between him and other world leaders, prompting his effort to keep interactions with Putin from members of his own administration.

The Post reported that, while the American interpreter in the room during the Hamburg meeting "refused" to discuss it with other administration officials, the interpreter did say that Trump responded "I believe you" after Putin denied any Russian involvement in the USA election.

"If you compare objectively, President Trump's policies to Russia compared to President Obama's policies to Russia - by any measure, President Obama was much easier, was much more gentler on Russia". A White House spokesperson told the Post, without mentioning Hamburg specifically, that Trump "has affirmed that he supports the conclusions in the 2017 Intel Community Assessment". "I do it with all countries". "That meeting is up for grabs". "I'm not keeping anything under wraps". He also accused the Post of fabricating the report.

And Johnson also said he was wary of Trump declaring a national emergency in order to build a wall along the southern border.

By May 2017, both Comey and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page told House investigators past year that by the time the Federal Bureau of Investigation director was sacked and special counsel appointed, there was no hard evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation", similarly dismissed the Post report, arguing that Trump's administration has been tough on Russian Federation and that concerns about the president's affinity for Putin are unfounded.

"I mean, it's so ridiculous, these people making up", Trump said, claiming the Post is a "lobbyist" for Bezos' interests. The probe is not just about Russian election interference, or about Trump's obstruction of the probe - it is about the secret relationship between Trump and Russia that appears to be causing both these things to happen. "I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be".
