President Trump Holds Press Conference With Colombia's President Before Overseas Trip

Ben Pena | 19 May, 2017, 20:31

The remarks will be Trump's first live, on-camera remarks since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tapped Robert Mueller to be a special counsel overseeing the Justice Department's Russian Federation probe.

"Ditto the president's reported disclosure of highly classified intelligence to Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting", the report said, naming names of those Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen.

Trump said he was about to name a replacement for Comey, another move to settle the waters.

While taking questions at a Thursday afternoon joint press conference between President Trump and Colombian President Michael Santos, Trump flat out denied that he requested former FBI Director James Comey to end the ongoing investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Curbelo urged the creation of a select committee to investigate possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly briefed senators on Mueller's appointment on Thursday, but refused to give a public statement. Republicans on Capitol Hill hoped the same, reasoning that the appointment of a special counsel could free them to work on a major tax overhaul and other matters without constant distractions.

"I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so that we can focus on our agenda", McConnell told Bloomberg News.

An embassy statement said the group had "aggressively provoked Turkish-American citizens" who had gathered to greet Erdogan. Turkey's president told the United States it will not join any military operations that include Kurdish fighters in Syria.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal also told reporters that Mueller was conducting a criminal investigation, including into whether there was any obstruction of justice on behalf of Trump's campaign team.

That means he can issue subpoenas, present evidence to a grand jury and bring charges - all the powers of a federal prosecutor.

But Republicans in Congress are trying to soldier on if Ryan has anything to say about it.

Bipartisan lawmakers had criticized Comey for his handling of investigations related to Trump and his electoral opponent Hillary Clinton.

When Santos was asked if he had any suggestions for Trump on how to weather bad press, he demurred.

Trump will carry that baggage on his first overseas trip as president. He also is scheduled to have an audience with the Pope.

Trump's political organisation has been sending out appeals for donations by portraying the president as under siege by the Washington establishment and the media.
