Russian Federation probe is 'Democrat hoax'; won't commit to meet Mueller

The program will cost $1 trillion dollars over its 60-year lifespan - the most expensive agency program ever.

Back on February 16, 2017, Trump held his first - and thus far last - formal news conference with the press corps.

The White House did not immediately respond to CNN's request for clarification on Trump's comments.

She added that Norwegians generally didn't want "to be flattered by this USA president in this way". "It's all fake news".

Then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and son Donald Trump Jr. attended the meeting, which was initially billed to Trump Jr.as a means of securing information damaging to Trump's political opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton. Florida Rep. Tom Rooney, one of several Republicans leading the intelligence committee probe, has said it's time for the investigation to wind down.

A month before that February 2017 press conference, BuzzFeed published the now-discredited "Trump dossier".

Standing alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the White House, Mr Trump presented himself as a champion of environmentalism.

The question Trump posed, for example - did the Federal Bureau of Investigation use the infamous Russian Federation dossier to ask the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to grant warrants for surveillance of Americans - addresses some of the most secret official information in Washington.

And what was Trump asked about?

The assessment from the committee's top Democrat underscores the partisan impasse that has plagued the House investigation, with Nunes and House Republicans now focusing on investigating allegations of improper FBI conduct during the 2016 elections and over its Russia probe - while Democrats demand a deeper dive into whether there was any Trump campaign collusion with the Russians. He followed his question up by asserting that, "we should have more people from places like Norway".

Trump stuck to his familiar talking points in his answers to the questions, saying, "There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians". For 11 months, they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government. She said they are hurting prospects for a bipartisan agreement on immigration. "The Democrats, by contrast, are insisting on a ridiculous, endless investigation for public relations purposes, in order to distract from their inability to provide evidence for the wild arguments they've been making to the media all year".

Occasionally, though, the Russian Federation narrative appears ready to die down, but then Trump raises the issue again himself.

A person with direct knowledge of the discussions said they were ongoing and preliminary, according to NBC News.

As of this week, more than 50 such communications have been documented, and two Trump aides have pleaded guilty to felony charges of lying about those contacts. One slip of the tongue or uncensored remark could lead Mueller's investigators to probe new areas, and one itty, bitty lie to federal agents could lead to a charge of making false statements-a felony in the US legal code. "They have actual health care, and longer life expectancy", author Stephen King wrote on Twitter.

Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Trump said his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the United States unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin.
