And the investigation was whether you were actively working for Russian Federation or unwittingly.

A recent New York Times report alleging that President Donald Trump was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a potential national security threat as well as a Russian agent has sent shockwaves through the nation, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo brushed it off as absurd.

US intelligence agencies have said Moscow tried to tip the election to Trump. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

The New York Times reported that Trump's behavior in the days around his firing of James Comey as FBI director helped trigger the counterintelligence part of the investigation. Mr. Trump said he believed the Russian president, contradicting the conclusions of the US intelligence community.

'Why would you turn over that information? "This is absurd", she said.

Warner is a member of the 'Gang of Eight, ' a bipartisan group of senior lawmakers from the House and Senate who receive classified intelligence briefings from the White House.

When asked by CNN about classified information that the "Gang of Eight" received about Russian Federation and the Mueller investigation, Warner refused to specify.

"I would. I don't care", said Trump about revealing details of the discussion. The inquiry reportedly sought to get to the bottom of whether Trump was hindering the safety of the nation and whether he was obstructing justice with the ouster, given that there is an ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

When asked whether the Senate should subpoena a translator so they can see what Trump and Putin have discussed behind closed doors, Cruz said he would like to learn "a little more" but that it would be premature to take that action. He never spoke ill about Russia, ' Warner told CNN.

Trump made the comments in a telephone interview late on January 12 with Fox News, after The Washington Post reported that the USA president "has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide details" of his conversations with Putin.

"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!"

Without hesitation, the president fired back, "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked". "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written and if you read the [New York Times] article you see that they found absolutely nothing".

"Every time Trump meets with Putin, the country is told nothing", Engel said in a statement.

On Saturday morning, Trump responded to the story on Twitter by venting his outrage, though he did not deny that there was an investigation into his conduct.

According to Trump, "the FBI was in complete turmoil. because of Comey's poor leadership" and the way he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server to send some government emails.

'And, obviously, nothing was found, ' Trump said of the alleged investigation.
