Trump Suggests Republicans Scuttle Russia Investigations

"Our position has always been that if asked we'll cooperate", this person said.

U.S. President Donald Trump announces his decision regarding the United States' participation in the Paris climate agreement in the Rose Garden at the White House June 1, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Trump first insisted that he canned Comey on the recommendation of his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, only to then tell NBC's Lester Holt that he had the Russian Federation investigation on his mind.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the election to try to help Mr Trump win.

Mr Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, may also be looking at whether Mr Trump and his inner circle sought to obstruct justice, which has raised speculation that the president himself would be interviewed.

"Make it stop" was the message that Trump gave to then-FBI Director James Comey, when he demanded Comey's personal loyalty and pressured Comey to drop his investigation into National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. It's a message that we've heard repeatedly in the a year ago.

Trump called the investigation a "phony cloud" over his administration.

"The president and his personal attorneys are going to discuss this matter with the Office of the Special Counsel, not reporters", Sanders said.

He later apologised for his statements, but the White House refused to accept it, calling his comments "repugnant" and "grotesque".

The GOP has agreed to bring in a handful of witnesses so far this year, including former senior Trump aide Steve Bannon, who is expected before the panel next week.

Trump previously denied anyone in his campaign had contact with Russian Federation. "When they have no collusion, and nobody has found any collusion, at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview". He declined to say whom these individuals were when asked.

WHAT IT MEANS: If the president demands that his political allies shut down an investigation into himself and his family, that's a problem. Or about Trump Jr.'s meeting beforehand? His team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump as part of the probe, but no details have been worked out.

Trump said it was a "lot better" to work with other countries.

WaPo: "Democrats are striking out on their own this week over all but one of the congressional investigations into Russian meddling, independently releasing reports and transcripts, and attacking Republicans they accuse of intentionally undermining active probes in deference to President Trump".

Sending these three very basic questions Trump's way right out of the gate would be a fastball to Trump's head-a way to get him off balance during one of the most important legal proceedings the president has gone through in five decades of public life.
