GOP Shrugs Off Report That Trump Concealed Details Of Putin Meetings

GOP Shrugs Off Report That Trump Concealed Details Of Putin Meetings

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

"The idea that's contained in The New York Times story that President Trump was a threat to American national security is silly on its face and not worthy of a response", Pompeo told CBS's "Face the Nation" in an interview that aired Sunday.

In an interview Saturday, President Trump disparaged two recent explosive reports about his dealings with the Kremlin, lashing out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the news media and defending his interactions with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "It was a great conversation".

Trump said it was the "most insulting" question he'd ever been asked. Mr. Trump said he believed the Russian president, contradicting the conclusions of the US intelligence community.

Trump also said he had "a great conversation" with Putin during their one-on-one, almost two-hour meeting in Helsinki in July 2018.

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.

Then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was present at that Hamburg meeting, which occurred at the G-20 summit.

Trump responded, "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked".

A White House spokesman contacted by the Washington Post who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the administration has sought to "improve the relationship with Russian Federation".

A secret security investigation by a powerful police agency directed against an elected president or prime minister can be described as nothing other than the antechamber to a coup by the military or intelligence services.

Trump Accused of Keeping Details of Putin Talks Secret
Trump replied "I believe you" when Putin denied meddling in the US elections, according to the Post . "That meeting is open for grabs", he said, referring to a conversation with Putin about Israel.

"The liberal media has wasted two years trying to manufacture a fake collusion scandal instead of reporting the fact that unlike President Obama, who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation".

Passage of the resolution of disapproval of Treasury's decision would require the approval of both the Democratic-majority house and the Senate, led by Trump's fellow Republicans who are unlikely to break with his policy.

"I would, I don't care", the president told Pirro.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., defended the president, who he said was "burned earlier by leaks of other private conversations".

"Are you now, or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?"

'Anybody could have listened to that meeting, it is open for grabs.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and views it as an attempt to besmirch the legitimacy of his presidency.

"I'd like to get the notes of the meeting that the President had with Putin".

In the chaotic aftermath at the FBI following Director James Comey's firing, a half-dozen senior FBI officials huddled to set in motion the momentous move to open an investigation into President Donald Trump that included trying to understand why he was acting in ways that seemed to benefit Russian Federation. "I have President Putin, he just said, it's not Russian Federation".

" I would hate to see it", he said.
