Trump Says He's 'Not Keeping Anything Under Wraps,' About Meetings With Putin

After that meeting, Trump and Putin held a memorable joint press conference during which Trump doubted USA intelligence agencies' conclusions about Russian election interference.

The headline Trump referenced read "F.B.I.

I couldn't care less", Trump said in an interview with Jeanine Pirro on Fox News on Saturday night.

President Donald Trump listens as he leads a roundtable discussion on border security with local leaders, Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington.

On Saturday, Pirro also asked the president about a Washington Post report published Saturday saying Mr. Trump had gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide the details of several of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin from other officials in his administration. Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was present at this particular meeting, though he has not elaborated beyond a brief readout.

Trump 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".

Trump's alleged actions frustrated administration officials, since they were never able to obtain a "comprehensive account of the meeting", the Post reported.

At least 22 people, including two security personnel, have been killed during the protests and hundreds wounded, officials say. Since then, tensions have escalated into nationwide rallies, with protesters calling for President Omar al-Bashir to resign.

The first question to ask yourself when absorbing this story is, what does it mean for a president to be working for Russian Federation, and against the United States? "The Foreign Affairs Committee will seek to get to the bottom of it".

"Here's the bottom line", the president said. "He's taking steps that suggest that there are things being discussed here that he doesn't even want his staff to hear about or to understand".

The New York Times reported that the FBI launched the previously undisclosed counterintelligence investigation to determine whether Trump posed a national security threat, at the same time that it opened a criminal probe into possible obstruction of justice by the president.

President Trump attacked the F.B.I.in a series of tweets early Saturday morning. My firing of James Comey was a great day for America.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is close to Trump and chairs the Judiciary Committee, said he intends to ask the FBI director if there was a counterintelligence investigation into the president.

President Donald Trump has avoided giving a direct answer when asked if he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation after a published report said his behavior gave federal law enforcement officials reason to begin investigating whether he had worked for the USA adversary. "After the rigged & botched Crooked Hillary investigation, where she was interviewed on July 4th Weekend, not recorded or sworn in, and where she said she didn't know anything (a lie),".

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. "Unlike President Obama, who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation".
