Russian Federation probe looking at current WH official

Mr Trump fired Mr Flynn in February after it became clear he had falsely characterised the nature of phone conversations with Mr Kislyak in late December - after the November 8 election and just after the Obama administration announced new sanctions on Russian Federation. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said during the March 10 meeting, according to notes taken by White House officials.

"I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

But Mr Trump spotted the 6ft 8in Comey and called him over for a hug - though Mr Comey had been aiming instead for a handshake at the 22 January encounter. "That's why the Deputy Attorney General went out and wrote his very, very strong letter", Trump said while referring to Comey's testimony before lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Yesterday, shortly before Mr Trump's press conference at the White House, Mr Rosenstein briefed the entire United States senate on Capitol Hill, a previously-scheduled engagement. He says he thought that move was appropriate and produced a memo summarizing what he said were his "longstanding concerns" over Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation.

But Mr. Issa did say there is "great consensus" between Democrats and Republicans that the Russians need to be punished for interfering the USA presidential election in November.

An unnamed official read quotes from the document to the Times; a second unnamed official confirmed the outlines of the discussion, the newspaper reported.

Trump on Sunday also touted Washington's "wonderful relationship" with Bahrain, which hosts the U.S Navy's 5th Fleet. Trump offered few indications of whether he planned to shift USA policy to better fight terrorism.

"He was insane, a real nut job", Trump told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey I. Kislyak during a meeting in the Oval Office earlier this month, according to the Times report.

Sean Spicer, White House press secretary, did not dispute the account. "Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations", Spicer said.

Upon leaving an all-members meeting with Rosenstein Friday, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Rosenstein told members "he has no evidence that Comey asked for additional resources".

The Justice Department says Mueller, the new special counsel, has been given sweeping power to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, including potential links between Moscow and Trump associates.

Senators who attended the closed-door meeting said Mr Rosenstein said he knew on Monday, May 8th, that Mr Trump was planning to fire Mr Comey before he wrote the memo that was initially used by the White House to justify the decision. "That's taken off", Trump allegedly said. "I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things". When Trump spotted Comey anyway, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director extended his hand so that they would only have a handshake, but the president pulled him in for a hug anyway. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) sought to clarify whether Mr. Comey was sacked shortly after asking for additional resources for the Russian Federation investigation, as reported by multiple news outlets. Trump has denied any collusion and called the case a waste of money and time.
