"I never worked for Russia", Trump told reporters before leaving the White House for a trip to New Orleans.

"I know what the president likes to do", McCarthy said on "Face the Nation".

He added: "I think it's a disgrace that you even ask that question because it's a whole big fat hoax".

"Not only would it be an issue of obstructing an investigation, but the obstruction itself would hurt our ability to figure out what the Russians had done, and that is what would be the threat to national security", former FBI General Counsel James A. Baker said in an October testimony before Congress, portions of which were read to The New York Times.

Former FBI Director James Comey knocked Republicans again in response to President Donald Trump's comments about the FBI and the ongoing government shutdown. "If the president says something or does something the FBI doesn't like, can the FBI launch a criminal investigation on what seems to me to be, really, very shaky grounds?"

"I never worked for Russia", Trump told reporters. After the rigged & botched Crooked Hillary investigation, where she was interviewed on July 4th Weekend, not recorded or sworn in, and where she said she didn't know anything (a lie).the FBI 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).

According to CNN, a half-dozen top Federal Bureau of Investigation officials gathered in the aftermath of Comey's firing and "debated a range of possibilities" in "trying to understand why [Trump] was acting in ways that seemed to benefit Russian Federation".

When Warner was asked whether he thinks Trump acted wittingly or unwittingly as a Russian agent, he cited a report alleging that Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, shared internal polling data with a Russian businessman believed to be connected to Russian intelligence.

The Washington Post also reported that Trump had concealed details of his conversations with Putin, including an instance in 2017 when the president took the notes of his interpreter and instructed him not to discuss the meeting.

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 USA presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital.

Mr Trump never answered Ms Pirro's question directly, but went on to say that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has.

Reports have suggested that lawyers for the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees will evaluate on Monday whether to subpoena the interpreters who were present during Trump's private meetings with Putin. Journalists have previously called attention to the fact that Putin sent Trump a secret letter in 2013 after the then real estate mogul held a Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.
