White House: Trump Expects Russia to Return Crimea to Ukraine

Trump revives voter fraud claims in lunch with senators

Donald Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017, and within "days" his national security adviser was being questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his calls with a Russian official.

The White House official blamed much of the outcry against Flynn on a Washington culture always in search of a scalp, but people within Trump's orbit did little to defend Flynn during appearances on Sunday news shows. Russian lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev, who leads the upper house of parliament's global affairs committee, speculated online that the resignation shows a White House that's increasingly anti-Russian.

Top White House officials have been reviewing over the weekend Mr Flynn's contacts with the Russians and whether he discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia once Mr Trump took office, which could potentially be in violation of a law banning private citizens from engaging in foreign policy.

U.S. President Donald Trump made it clear he expects Russian Federation to return Crimea to Ukraine and reduce violence in Ukraine, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday.

While no one knows the long-term play with this newfound love affair between President Pee-Pee and Putin, it's clear that those two need to get a room.

The White House's National Security Advisor has been fired after just 24 days on the job. All he knows is that he wants one from which Sessions, due to his personal ties with Flynn and Trump, recuses himself. However, a senior intelligence official told NBC News last week that there had been no finding that Flynn acted illegally.

"I don't know about it". It's more challenging than simply cherry-picking damaging disclosures about Hillary Clinton from Wikileaks (which Obama warned were provided by hackers with ties to the Russian government, shortly before he left office), which had been the media's obsession throughout much of 2016.

Cook steps down as England Test captain
Hopefully, his journey towards the very top of the Test run-scoring charts is given a boost by this decision. No sooner did Cook announce his decision on Monday than Pietersen took to Twitter.

Flynn was a loyal Trump supporter throughout the campaign, but his ties to Russian Federation caused concern among other senior aides. "If he was not entirely honest with the F.B.I., it could expose Mr. Flynn to a felony charge".

Mr Flynn has apologised to Mr Pence and others over the incident, the first official said.

US Representative Adam Schiff of California, ranking Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Mr Flynn's departure does not end the questions. "You can mark it down", Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell quickly dismissed calls for an independent investigative effort.

Fox News first reported Monday night that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct an assessment of recent media leaks.

"It was not a legal issue, it was a trust issue", he said. "We've got a major fox in a hen house problem".
