Trump Accused of Keeping Details of Putin Talks Secret

The report about Trump's meetings with Putin follows a Friday report from The New York Times that the F.B.I. opened an investigation into whether or not Trump was acting on Russia's behalf after Trump fired former F.B.I. director James Comey in 2017.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) claimed on Sunday that Americans outside of Washington D.C. aren't "concerned" about special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into potential Trump collusion with Russian Federation. And he blasted the Times, calling it a "disaster of a newspaper". The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle. That is, the nation's top police agency was concerned that the positions adopted contravened certain basic tenets of dominant sections of the foreign policy establishment.

"FBI senior leadership could not accept Comey was sacked for cause and the president had the constitutional authority to terminate Comey". Such an operation bespeaks a police state and recalls the methods of the Stalinist NKVD.

"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!"

"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!" "Unlike President Obama, who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation". Trump's news conference in Helsinki, in which he questioned his own intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 election, prompted bipartisan criticism.

The operations of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, encouraged, aided and abetted by the Times, recall the paranoid rantings of the John Birch Society, the ultra-right group formed in the 1950s, whose founder, Robert Welch, notoriously claimed that President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the former World War II commander of Allied forces in Europe, was a "a dedicated, conscious agent of the Communist conspiracy". My firing of James Comey was a great day for America.

But these allegations have no credibility.

Cruz, who sits on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, said he will consider any evidence provided but isn't going to base his decisions on "unsubstantiated media reports".

"I think it's the most insulting thing I have ever been asked", Mr. Trump told Pirro by phone, without explicitly denying the charge.

Republican lawmakers generally defended the president, saying he had been tougher on Russian Federation than his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, but some had questions.

The U.S. president has described the inquiry as "a witch hunt".

Trump also objected to a report in The Washington Post that said he went to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin even from high-ranking officials in his own administration.

Trump went so far as to take the notes from the interpreter who worked with him during a private meeting with Putin at the 2017 Group of 20 meeting in Hamburg, Germany.

"Why is he so chummy with Vladimir Putin, this man who is a former KGB agent, never been a friend to the United States, invaded our allies, threatens us around the world and tries his damnedest to undermine our elections?" Sen.
