"Here-to-fore we did, but it's being eroded and it's being eroded by facts that are being exposed and I don't think it's over", warned the IN congressman.

Trump continued to characterize the Russian collusion investigation "as a hoax, as a ruse, as an excuse for losing an election".

Trump went on to remind the reporters of his "absolute right" to do as he wishes with the Justice Department, alluding to earlier speculation that he could fire Mueller and close down the Russian Federation probe.

While at the president's West Palm Beach golf club, Trump provided a far-reaching, unscripted interview to the New York Times.

President Trump Calls FBI 'Tainted' Amid Russia Investigation

Dave Kendall, who served as a lawyer for former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonMueller's probe doesn't end with a bang, but with a whimper Mark Mellman: History's judgment Congress should massively ramp up funding for the NIH MORE, rushed to defend special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's investigation in an op-ed published Thursday, calling allegations of bias in the probe unfounded. After Flynn agreed to cooperate with the investigation, many legal experts speculated that he could have crucial intel on a top Trump official-or even Trump himself.

The Trump administration and the GOP have been pushing for a swift end to the probes. Trump randomly bringing up Paul Manafort's brief tenure as Associate Director of the Presidential Personnel Office for Ronald Reagan, sure?

In a wide-ranging interview with the New York Times touching on everything from North Korea to Roy Moore, Trump mentioned "collusion" about once every two minutes. When Times reporter Michael Schmidt asked him to explain his North Korea tweet, Trump responded, "Which one?"

Schmidt continued, "He wants the press to know that and he wants the press to essentially sort of thank him and, you know, I think that he thinks that the press has probably worse intentions than it really does". The president then elaborated further on the investigation, saying it made the United States "look very bad". "Six months before the election, they'll be loving me because they're saying, 'Please, please, don't lose Donald Trump'". "Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times".

The final line of the blog was a quote suggesting that Kwanzaa , like the Seinfeld-inspired Festivus, was a "fake holiday". At the end of the first day, the black candle in the centre is lit, followed by the others on subsequent nights.
