Transcripts Show FBI Considered Whether Trump was ‘Following Directions’ of the Kremlin

President Donald Trump blasted the FBI Saturday, insisting it acted "for no reason and with no proof" when it opened an investigation into whether he was acting on Russia's behalf after he fired the agency's director, James Comey, in May 2017.

He snapped at a reporter as he left the White House for a trip to New Orleans after she asked about the report of the FBI's investigation into whether he worked for Russian Federation, calling her question a "disgrace".

(Dowd) Then they play games with his counterintelligence business.I take what was driving me insane Brian as you know I served as a department just as I did an internal investigation of the FBI back when Director Kelly was there and working with two attorneys general.

Mr. Trump spent the snowy weekend in Washington lashing out on Twitter and Fox News against Democrats, and over explosive reports in the Washington Post and New York Times raising further questions about his relationship with the Kremlin.

But it held off on opening an investigation until the president sacked Comey, who refused to pledge allegiance to Trump and roll back the nascent Russian Federation investigation.

She said she will not work with Kelly again. 'I always felt like if I crossed him he would kill me, ' said Williams. Kelly's lawyer is speaking up for his client following the release of a new docuseries, Surviving R.

"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", he said. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written, and if you read the article you'll see that they found absolutely nothing".

In their message to Trump, the chairmen of the Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight committees say: "Our nation's laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress".

Missing from Engel's statement, however, was the fact that after two years of investigations by both US Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the FBI, there is still no actual evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to win the election, despite "Russiagate" faithfuls being convinced that a silver bullet is on the way.

"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!" He also is investigating possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

It was also reported that Trump went to great lengths to hide details of his conversations with Russia President Vladimir Putin. "I mean Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, McCabe, the whole crowd and they were out to get this president no matter what".

Special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into Russian election interference and whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russians.

"I know what the president likes to do", McCarthy said on "Face the Nation".

On Sunday, congressional Democrats said the steps Trump took to keep his conversations secret brought forth uncomfortable questions about the relations between the two men and why the US president echoed some of Putin's positions.

Meanwhile, Trump on Monday said "a lot" of Democratic lawmakers are "calling and they are breaking" with their party over the government shutdown.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.
