"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", Trump told Pirro, a personal friend. "It's pretty much up to him in terms of who he wants to read into his conversations with world leaders", Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union". Why is this President Trump's best buddy?

"I'd like to get the notes of the meeting that the President had with Putin".

'I'm not going to talk about what we may have been briefed in "the Gang of Eight" when these investigations opened, but I do think it's curious that throughout that whole summer when these investigations started, you had Vladimir Putin policies nearly being parroted by Donald Trump, ' Warner said. As the senator from IL said, "It's within his power to hold these investigations, and he should".

Trump said it was the "most insulting" question he'd ever been asked.

A US House of Representatives committee will look into a newspaper report the FBI investigated whether President Donald Trump has been working on behalf of Russian Federation, against US interests, the panel's Democratic chairman says.

President Donald Trump blasted recent reports by The Washington Post and The New York Times that raised questions about his private meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and revealed an FBI investigation into his behavior after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

"The inquiry carried explosive implications". Many of the President's talking points were rehearsed: "A lot of the people that aren't getting their checks are letting us know, 'We don't care, you've got to solve the crisis at the border, '" he said of the 800,000 federal workers now furloughed due to the partial government.

"Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, nearly all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze!", Mr Trump tweeted.

Days after the FBI launched the investigation, it was taken over by Mueller as part of his broader probe.

But when Trump then tied Comey's firing to the Russian Federation investigation two separate times, the FBI opened the probe, the people said to the Times.

Trump responded to the report Saturday during a telephone interview broadcast on Fox News Channel after host Jeanine Pirro asked whether he is now or has ever worked for Russian Federation.

On this weekend's broadcast of "Fox News Sunday", Sen.

Asked whether he'd like Congress to investigate the matter, including potentially calling the president's translator to testify, McCarthy said, "I'd like the president to be able to build these relationships". "What kind of checks and balances are there?"

President Donald Trump has gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide details of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Washington Post reported in a bombshell story late Saturday.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told the Post he "was present for the entirety of the two presidents' official bilateral meeting in Hamburg", but declined to share additional details.
