McCarthy: Russia Investigation Has Been About Trump 'From the Beginning'

14 January 2019

Also this weekend, the Washington Post reported that Trump "has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations" with Putin from members of his own administration-"including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials".

Not even classified detailed records exist to document Trump and Putin's conversations.

President Trump never answered Pirro directly, but went on to assert that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has.

He was referring to a New York Times report Friday night that law enforcement officials were so anxious about President Trump's behavior just days after he fired James Comey as FBI director that they launched an investigation into whether the president was working for Russian Federation against American interests.

"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!"

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the story was so outrageously inaccurate it didn't even warrant a response.

What did the Washington Post report?

The paper says Mr Trump concealed details of his conversations with Mr Putin from senior officials in his administration, quoting unnamed current and former U.S. officials.

In Helsinki, the two presidents spoke behind closed doors for two hours with only their interpreters present.

How far on is the Mueller inquiry?

On Sunday, Cruz told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the media's focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's campaign to disrupt the 2016 USA presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital.

It has already put some of Mr Trump's closest associates in the dock.

His former personal lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for campaign finance and fraud crimes while his campaign chief Paul Manafort was convicted of financial fraud.
