Sen. Johnson: 'Up To' Trump Who He Reads in On Putin Conversations

Trump blasts FBI probe into whether he worked for Russia Washington Post: Trump concealed details from meetings with Putin

Trump went on to attack the "failing" New York Times as "a disaster of a newspaper", adding, "And if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing".

"In fact, when I was sacked as director, I still didn't know whether there was anything to it", Comey said in testimony, according to the transcript.

Current and former USA 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.

USA 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. The secrecy "is not only unusual by historical standards, it is outrageous", says Strobe Talbot, former deputy secretary of state under Bill Clinton.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement calling the Post story "so outrageously inaccurate it doesn't even warrant a response".

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

"If you compare objectively President Trump's policies in Russian Federation... to President Obama's policies in Russian Federation".

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Trump has repeatedly sought to hide his interactions with Putin, often one of the main USA adversaries in worldwide affairs.

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

President Donald Trump avoided giving a direct answer when asked if he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation after a published report said federal law enforcement officials were so concerned about his behavior after he fired James Comey from the FBI that they began investigating whether Trump had been working for the US adversary against American interests. "I mean, it's so ridiculous", the US president said.

"I know what the president likes to do".

For opponents of the president, there are no innocent explanations for Trump's actions, which are possible evidence that Trump has colluded with Russian Federation, a question at the heart of the special counsel inquiry.

It wasn't the weekend that President Donald Trump wanted: largely alone at the White House, irked by a pair of startling Russian Federation headlines and baffled that he's not getting more credit for staying put during the partial government shutdown.

The president also pointed out that the miscreants involved in the counterintelligence investigation were eventually fired themselves. "I do it with all countries. They've actually gotten me wrong for many years before that".

But he said most Americans outside of Washington were not interested in the subject.

He said that the report only suggests that after Comey was sacked in May of 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department "very rashly" thought they found a crime of obstruction against Trump. "That meeting is up for grabs".
