This is the week the game changed in the Russian Federation investigation

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump dance at the Freedom Ball in Washington DC

Experts quickly laughed off Giuliani's assertion that the president can "correct" an investigative report into his own actions.

The findings the special counsel has dug up over the course of his months-long investigation will be ready to present to the Justice Department as soon as late February, according to new reporting out from NBC this week, though when or if those details will become public remains unclear.

The president's lawyer said it was time for the special counsel to issue his report: "Put up or shut up".

An American presidential campaign chairman handing over of internal polling data to a corporate associate of a foreign power is unusual, at best.

"A national security threat", he repeated for emphasis.

The grand jury empaneled by the special counsel has been extended for another six months, however, signaling that the probe may continue beyond the winter. Prosecutors claim that, in a money-laundering case involving NY real estate, Veselnitskaya lied about her links to Russian intelligence.

So far, five key advisors to Donald Trump have been found guilty of crimes after being charged in the special counsel investigation.

The investigation the FBI opened into Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has always been publicly known: whether his firing of Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee announced Thursday that Cohen will testify before that panel february 7, a little more than a month after the Democrats took the House majority. The overall investigation is looking into Russian election interference and whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russians. Trump has repeatedly slammed the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and insisted there was "NO COLLUSION" with Russian Federation.

But even Fox News analysts have agreed that Manafort's reputed sharing of internal campaign data with a Russian intelligence-linked operative was the surest evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Kremlin yet.

The investigation - a dual counterintelligence and criminal probe - was launched after the president fired FBI director James Comey in May 2017, the Times said, citing anonymous sources. "Collusion is a nonlegal term", he said, adding that giving polling data to the Russians "would probably fit into that kind of a category".
