Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Spicer repeated some variation of the line during the Trump transition phrase and has continued to find use for it during the Trump presidency.

In a move that should certainly alarm the White House, Sen.

Prior to former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates' scheduled testimony on Capitol Hill Monday, Trump tweeted that the Senate Judiciary subcommittee conducting the hearing should ask Yates whether she knows how classified information was leaked to the media shortly after her meeting with White House counsel Don McGahn. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wanting to look into Trump's business dealings in Russia, Spicer said, "So the president obviously was aware of Sen".

CNN reports that Graham, who chairs Senate committees on armed services, foreign relations, and terrorism, wants to dig into Trump's finances.

But Graham also told the network that the subcommittee, which he chairs, may have to "steer clear" of the issue if it conflicts with the FBI's probe of Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In his termination letter to FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, Trump wrote, "I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation".

Spicer says Trump has no business in Russian Federation or ties to the country.

And as a result, Lindsey Graham is now more interested himself in learning more about that. "And the president's comments on his concern for national security, yes, it's concerning", Spicer said during a press gaggle.

The Syrian government warned in January that it would retaliate against any attack targeting its own areas. A Lebanese news agency affiliated with Hezbollah is claiming that Israel was responsible for the attack.

"Not in the course of the preparation of the intelligence communities assessment", said Mr Clapper, who served under former President Barack Obama. When I had a chance to talk to Senator Graham this morning, he said, "Look that's something that I would like to look into, I want my committee to look into that".

"And I can't reveal that in an open setting", Yates said.

Graham told CNN it would be helpful to see Trump's tax records but that it was too soon to say whether he would be willing to subpoena them, the network said.

People want real evidence, and a certified letter is a dumb response that will only make investigators dig deeper. But here is why it is important to know about the unmasking of the conversations between the ambassador and Gen. Flynn.

Russian officials have denied any allegations of meddling in the 2016 USA election and the White House has also reaffirmed there was no proof of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia during the election.

During the hearing, Graham asked Clapper if he had any concerns about Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation. Trump has repeatedly dismissed the ongoing investigation as "fake news".

He later added: "The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?"
