Trump Doesn't Get to Decide if the Russia Story Is 'Fake News'

Explained: Why Trump's National Security Adviser Flynn Is in Hot Water Over Russia Call?

Rep. Eliot Engel of NY, the top Foreign Affairs Committee Democrat, called for a "thorough, bipartisan investigation to get the complete picture of Russia's interference" in the US presidential election following Flynn's resignation.

Trump fired Yates at the end of January after she told Justice Department attorneys not to defend his executive order suspending the refugee program and temporarily restricting travel to the U.S. from seven majority-Muslim nations. "We are running, this is a fine-tuned machine". He said he would announce a "new and very comprehensive order to protect our people". "I certainly didn't win by people listening to you people". Trump called Paul Manafort, his former campaign manager who has ties to Ukraine and Russian Federation, a "respected man".

"I'm calling on my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to put our country before politics and support a comprehensive investigation into the ties between the Trump White House and Putin's Russian Federation", said Moulton in a prepared statement.

"We as journalists increasingly take precautions to try to protect our sources and to protect ourselves", Entous told CBC's The Investigators this week, acknowledging Trump's words, "could have an impact, to make it harder for us to do our jobs".

"The fake news media is going insane with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred".

He's also going after those who have leaked information to the press, describing it as a "criminal act".

The leaks are real.

"Russia is fake news".

Trump Assails US Intelligence Agencies Amid Questions Over Russia
Trump defended Flynn's calls with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. during the transition period after his November victory. To an African-American reporter: "Are they friends of yours?" when she asked about the Congressional Black Caucus.

"Normally, if you had a national security advisor leaving at three weeks, you'd be pretty concerned about the national security of the country", continued Rainwater. It came a day after fast-food executive Andrew Puzder withdrew his nomination for Labor after losing support among Republican senators. Though Thursday's news conference was a messy, fact-challenged affair, it may well have been cheered by Trump supporters across the country who had packed arenas past year to jeer reporters and chant "tell the truth" at the press pen.

"I won with news conferences and probably speeches", the president told reporters.

Tillerson, who has kept a low public profile since being sworn in, hasn't commented on Flynn's departure or on Trump's early handling of foreign policy.

A USA official told The Associated Press that Flynn was in frequent contact with Kislyak on the day the Obama administration slapped sanctions on Russian Federation for election-related hacking, as well as at other times during the transition.

In response, Spicer began by alluding to Trump's oft-stated desire to have good relations with Russian Federation to "help us defeat ISIS and terrorism throughout the world", before saying that Ambassador Haley's strong comments were indeed made on behalf of the president.

Trump is said to favor Vice Admiral Robert Harward, a former Navy SEAL, as his next national security adviser, according to a White House official.

Some Republicans also called on the White House for more disclosure. Tillerson, who heads to Bonn, Germany, on Wednesday on his first official trip, is widely expected to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during the trip.

President Donald Trump asked for Michael Flynn's resignation after he lost trust in his national security adviser for misleading Vice President Mike Pence over his calls with Russia's ambassador, the White House said Tuesday. The concern was raised after Flynn claimed that he did not discuss with the Russian ambassador the sanctions being imposed by the former President Barack Obama's administration in retaliation for Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
