  • Trump calls question on whether he ever worked for Russian Federation 'insulting'

There are no detailed records of five personal meetings President Donald Trump has had with Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Washington Post reported Saturday, citing United States officials.

Senator Mark Warner, the ranking Democrat on the powerful Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN on Sunday that whether Trump was a witting or unwitting agent of Russian Federation is "the defining question" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

After a meeting with Mr Putin in Hamburg in 2017, Mr Trump took possession of his interpreter's notes, the paper says.

A separate source said Baker told investigators the internal FBI debate over the president's decision to fire Comey on May 9, 2017, included personnel who have since left the bureau for cause, retired, or have been demoted.

President Donald Trump on Saturday said the idea that he ever worked for Russian Federation was "insulting", and he slammed a New York Times article regarding his potential ties to Russian Federation as "the most insulting article". "I'm not keeping anything under wraps".

There have already been concerns by special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump's firing of Comey constituted an act of obstruction of justice.

The officials said there is no detailed record, including in classified files, of Trump's face-to-face interactions with Putin at five locations from the past two years, the newspaper reported. "Anyone could have listened to that meeting".

Last summer, the committee released preliminary findings of its investigation, including the allegation that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an "extensive and sophisticated" public relations campaign to help Trump defeat Hillary Clinton while sowing discord on social media.

When asked whether the Senate should subpoena a translator so they can see what Trump and Putin have discussed behind closed doors, Cruz said he would like to learn "a little more" but that it would be premature to take that action.

President Trump attacked the F.B.I.in a series of tweets early Saturday morning.

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times he had no knowledge of the counterintelligence inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they hadn't heard anything, apparently "they found nothing".

The president also hinted that the Russian Federation collusion "hoax" would soon backfire badly on the perpetrators, including some individuals whom he didn't identify because it would make "front page news" if he did.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has defended the decision, saying the companies are undergoing a major restructuring to "sever Deripaska's control and significantly diminish his ownership". Deripaska has figured into the investigation due to his ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The president also pointed out that the miscreants involved in the counterintelligence investigation were eventually fired themselves.

Warner predicted some Republicans in the GOP-controlled Senate would join Democrats in voting to override the removal of these sanctions.
