Trump says 'never worked for Russia,' slams 'big fat hoax'

At least publicly, it's not known if Trump is actually acting on Moscow's behalf, even unwittingly, or whether this latest breach of presidential protocol is just yet another component of his reckless presidency. The whole Russian Federation thing it's a hoax, it's a total hoax, everybody knows it'. Thought he worked for Kremlin?' Trump asked. According to the Times report, counterintelligence investigators sought to determine whether Trump was intentionally working to further Moscow's goals or had unknowingly succumbed to its influence. However, Mueller is also probing whether Trump's firing of Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

Trump said the Times's account of the mid-2017 FBI investigation of him was "a very awful thing".

"That was one extreme".

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow led a propaganda and hacking campaign created to tip the 2016 White House race to Trump.

'There's a range of things this could possibly be.

While the president continues to forcefully criticize the FBI's handling of the investigation into his campaign, the man he nominated as his new attorney general says he supports letting the Special Counsel's Russian Federation investigation finish its work.

The Times article was followed the next day by a report in The Washington Post that said Trump had repeatedly sought to hide details of his personal interactions with Putin.

The newspaper's report said the agency started investigating Trump in 2017, after he had fired former FBI Director James Comey. He called them "dirty cops". "This case had been a topic of discussion for some time". The "waiting on' was an indecision and a cautiousness on the part of the bureau with respect to what to do and whether there was sufficient predication to open". They also sought to determine whether Mr Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow. 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.

Both the investigation into Russian meddling, and the investigation into whether the US president has been working for Russian interests are now overseen by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

House Democrats are acting following a stunning Washington Post report that Trump has taken pains to keep even his own administration officials in the dark about his talks with Putin, taking away his interpreter's notes on at least one occasion and demanding that no information about the talks be shared with United States officials.

'Why would you turn over that information?

Trump has also repeatedly and vociferously denied collusion with the Russians.

Mr Trump was asked the same question by a Fox News host in an interview aired on Saturday, and called it "insulting".
