Trump calls report on FBI probe of him 'most insulting'

"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!"

U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, says his questions uncovered revelations that in May 2017 senior FBI leadership debated whether President Trump was directed by the Russian government to fire FBI Director James Comey. The interpreter revealed only that Mr. Trump replied "I believe you" when Putin denied meddling in the USA elections, according to the Post.

On Saturday, Pirro also asked the president about a Washington Post report published Saturday saying Mr. Trump had gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide the details of several of his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin from other officials in his administration.

During a phone interview on "Justice with Judge Jeanine", Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday evening that the stories were "all nonsense".

Whatever the facts, Democrats are eyeing a major dust-up and a chance to spend floor time blasting President Trump over allegations of election conspiracy with the Russians, along with the opportunity to make GOP lawmakers take a vote either defending or implicitly condemning the president.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is close to Trump and chairs the Judiciary Committee, said he intends to ask the FBI director if there was a counterintelligence investigation into the president. Trump has taken unusual steps to keep their conversations under wraps, according to the newspaper. "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". "Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working On Behalf Of Russia" and suggested that the firing of former FBI Director James Comey had inspired such doubt in others within the agency that they began digging for connections between Trump and Russia. I mean, it's so ridiculous.

"I know what was reported publicly in the media", he said.

There have already been concerns by special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump's firing of Comey constituted an act of obstruction of justice.

In a strongly worded reaction, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "This is absurd".

Trump, chose to respond to the reports on Twitter, beginning his comments by calling the New York Times "failing". Presidents obviously have the right to change American foreign policy, and to forge friendships with countries that had been previously hostile.

Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

Reuters could not independently verify details of the Post report.

"I would need a firm commitment that he will not allow any interference in the Mueller investigation", Coons said on "Fox News Sunday".

In the inquiry, counterintelligence investigators sought to evaluate whether Trump was a potential threat to national security. At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing.
