Trump calls question on whether he ever worked for Russian Federation 'insulting'

Trump calls question on whether he ever worked for Russian Federation 'insulting'

- A national security threat?

The officials said they found out about the apparent concealment when a White House adviser and a State Department official tried to get information from the interpreter beyond a separate readout provided by Tillerson. But the fact is that Trump has fought back against the Deep State and its press lackeys more effectively than any other recent Republicans, and his willingness to take his case directly to the people is a big reason why.

Administration officials have been unable to glean details of at least three other public interactions between the leaders over the past two years.

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

The Post's report comes less than 24 hours after a bombshell New York Times report that revealed President Trump has been the target of a counterintelligence investigation by the FBI, which began nearly immediately after he fired Jim Comey.

"James Comey was sacked because he's a disgraced partisan hack, and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

What it means for tech: Big tech companies apply for H-1B visas on behalf of foreign-born workers to fill their talent shortages. The Republican president has often said he wanted an immigration system that favoured educated or highly skilled people.

President Donald Trump has gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide details of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Washington Post reported in a bombshell story late Saturday.

Robert Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed special counsel soon after Comey's firing. Trump also instructed the interpreter "not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials", in the Post's words.

In a series of early-morning tweets Trump said that the agency had opened a probe "for no reason and with no proof, after I fired Lyin' James Comey, a total sleaze".

"The FBI was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey's poor leadership", he tweeted.

I have many one-on-one, nobody ever says anything about it, but with Putin they say, 'Oh what did they talk about?' We talked about very positive things, ' Trump added, saying that Israel was among the topics discussed.

In the same interview with Pirro, Trump referred to the Times' article as "the most insulting article I've ever had written [about me]".

But the White House, and Trump himself, disagree. "The liberal media has wasted two years trying to manufacture a fake collusion scandal instead of reporting on 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", she said. That, according to the Post, was when U.S. officials became aware of Trump's efforts.

Sanders called the report "absurd". She also disputed that Trump had ever been soft on Russian Federation. The inquiry started days after Trump fired the director of the FBI, James Comey.

The Post notes that this behavior by Trump is not usual per past presidential standards.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt" and views it as an attempt to besmirch the legitimacy of his presidency. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russian Federation sought to install through what USA intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.
