Rep. Schiff blasts Republicans for limiting Russia investigation in US House

Trump says US could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement

Yesterday, the president of the United States-whose campaign aides have been indicted, whose family and associates are under investigation for collusion, and who himself is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice in the firing of former FBI director James Comey-took advantage of his Executive Time to get on Twitter and tell Republicans "they should finally take control!" of the investigation.

Trump first insisted that he canned Comey on the recommendation of his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, only to then tell NBC's Lester Holt that he had the Russian Federation investigation on his mind. Catch the highlights below.

Trump said detailing his attempts to exert influence over the early stages of the Russian Federation probe was "way off".

This account was first disputed in early February of previous year when the Washington Post reported that Flynn had discussed US sanctions against Russian Federation with Kislyak and therefore what Pence told the American public had not been true. The attorney general eventually did so anyway, prompting the appointment of Mueller. "But it was given to me, along with a big mess of other things".

Meanwhile, it's not a surprise that Trump's lawyers are exploring options for avoiding a face-to-face interview with Mueller's team, Wright said. "It is in his imagination".

"President Trump makes this strategy manifest clear as day nearly every day on his Twitter feed".

"The president tweeted that his ", before boasting about his TV career and election victory.

"There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes", Trump tweeted. He then rehashed the accomplishments he had outlined on social media earlier in the day.

But when a reporter asked him Wednesday whether he would consent to an interview with Mueller, Trump replied, "We'll see what happens". "It's in his imagination".

Trump Admin Waives Iran Nuclear Sanctions But Announces New Targeted Sanctions
A decision to withhold a waiver would have effectively ended the deal between Iran and the other worldwide signatories. Iran has said that if the USA walks away from the agreement, it is ready to give an "appropriate and heavy response".

Per a new report by CNN today, it would appear that those close to Trump are advising him to stay away from Mueller and not submit to an interview request. Her staff helped conduct the interview with Simpson, who had also asked for the interview to be released. He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mr Mueller about it.

"Absolutely not", one unidentified man said. "No problem with that at all".

Trump said it was "very much better" having to do with North Korea where the USA now has a problem.

"I'm a Norwegian who enjoyed studying and working in the US. They didn't record", Trump said. The program will cost $1 trillion dollars over its 60-year lifespan - the most expensive agency program ever.

It has now been revealed that Glenn Simpson, who gave evidence to a powerful Senate committee about his Fusion GPS company's pre-election research, told U.S. officials that his investigators "did an enormous amount of work" on Mr Trump.

The revelation emerged yesterday after a US Senator leaked transcripts of an interview with the co-founder of the company which produced the report.

Democratic Senator from California Dianne Feinstein. Dreamers were protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program until Trump rescinded it. "We need it for security". It's an important issue for us.

A border wall is chief among his demands, which also include restrictions on visa sponsorship, additional border security and policies that would make it easier to detain and deport undocumented immigrants.

A month after his firing in May, Comey testified on Capitol Hill that Trump had requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's loyalty, which Comey said he declined. "Certainly I'll see what happens but when they have no collision-and nobody's found any collusion at any level-it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview".
