Donald Trump's advisors 'contacted Russian officials at least 18 TIMES before election'


Democrats have demanded an independent commission to dig into his firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called a couple times this week for "a little less drama from the White House, so that we can focus on our agenda".

Elijah Cummings, top Democrat on a key House oversight panel, countered that Ryan and the Republicans had shown "zero, zero, zero appetite for any investigation of President Trump".

The Times reported that Comey wrote the memo immediately after meeting with Trump on February 14, one day after Flynn was asked to resign.

Trump asked Comey when he would dispel investigation rumors
President Trump in the joint press conference emphasized that Colombia is a key partner in the war against drugs. Some of these Republicans have been quick to criticize the president, while not being almost so harsh on Mr.

While Trump questioned the legitimacy of the investigation, it has thrown the administration off track and consumed its political capital.

A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress - House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy - made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The FBI has not had that special reputation [after] what happened in the campaign; what happened with respect to the Clinton campaign - and even, you could say, directly or indirectly, with respect to the much more successful Trump campaign".

US stocks rallied back on Thursday after seeing their biggest drop in eight months the previous day on worries that the political turmoil could sideline Trump initiatives such as tax cuts that investors see as favouring economic growth.

The Senate intelligence committee on Wednesday asked Comey to appear before the panel in both open and closed sessions. "I hope you can let this go". Don't give in, don't back down.

When asked during a press conference whether he had ever urged Comey to end the probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Trump swiftly interrupted the reporter, saying, "No, no". The Flynn investigation was part of a broader probe into Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

The White House has denied the allegations of obstruction of justice. "We need a law enforcement professional, not someone who's run for office before", she said. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Russian Federation has been at the heart of Trump's recent string of controversies, but Putin's government has repeatedly brushed off the suggestion that it has had any role to play in the drama. And if they want to get re-elected, they've got to worry about delivering for their constituents. The existence of the memo was first reported Tuesday by The New York Times.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.
