President Donald Trump's efforts to hide his conversations with President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation and new details about the FBI investigation into his ties to Moscow have intensified debate over his relationship with Russian Federation, adding fuel to Democrats' budding investigations of his presidency and potentially setting up a clash between the White House and Congress.
"I never worked for Russia", Trump told reporters as he prepared to leave the White House for an event in New Orleans. "Everybody knows it. They know it and many of them are saying, 'We agree with you.' Many of them are calling and many of them are breaking". Schiff wrote on Twitter. "Shouldn't we find out whether our president is really putting "America first"?"
The administration appears unlikely to acquiesce to such a demand without a fight.
"Having said all that, I'm going to ask the FBI director was there a counterintelligence investigation opened up regarding the president as being a potential agent of the Russians", he added.
He was reacting to a New York Times report that law enforcement officials began investigating, in 2017, whether Trump had been working on behalf of Russian Federation against us interests.
Trump never answered Pirro directly, but went on to assert that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has.
Carlson told Goodstein it was unbelievable that investigators would take Trump's campaign-trail insistence on a better relationship with Moscow as evidence of collusion. "I don't get it".

He added, "It feels really great when Army men appreciate your film because we have made this film to pay tribute for their work". RSVP Movies has given back to back hits at the box office with "Kedarnath" and now " Uri: The Surgical Strike ".
It would be unfortunate if Congress had to break political norms to subpoena Marina Gross, the interpreter who was the only other American present past year during a two-hour conversation in Finland with President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
No official accounts of their talks have been released, but Trump told Pirro there was nothing to hide about their discussions and could release a transcript.
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. Mr. Trump said he simply had a conversation with Putin, as he would with any world leader.
The Finland discussion was remarkable because Trump questioned his own intelligence agencies' conclusion Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 election - not the first time he caused concern in the U.S. by taking Putin's view. His actions have kept even senior government officials in his administration in the dark about what he's discussed during his sit-downs with Putin.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's long-awaited report may not be as shocking as it has been built up to be - at least according to ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.
Republicans defended Trump on Sunday. There has been a confusing and sometimes even alarming tendency on the part of President Trump to complement President Putin and to do things like his abrupt announcement of a withdrawal from Syria that led his own secretary of defense to resign, that has led many of us to question his closeness to and his affinity for President Putin.
