Sen. Coons: Trump's 'Closeness' to Putin Is 'Alarming'

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

McCarthy said on Fox & Friends that he's surprised people are "whipped up" about a New York Times report of a secret FBI investigation into whether Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation shortly after he fired former director James Comey. "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", he said when asked if he has ever worked for Russian Federation. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written, and if you read the article you'll see that they found absolutely nothing".

"Why not release the conversation that you had with President Putin in Helsinki along with some other stuff?" he was asked by Fox News following the damaging report by The Washington Post.

Trump's claim was disputed by Virginia Sen. "USA officials learned of Trump's actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson", the daily said. Warner accused the White House of being very slow to put in place the penalties. "Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working On Behalf Of Russia" and suggested that the firing of former FBI Director James Comey had inspired such doubt in others within the agency that they began digging for connections between Trump and Russia.

On Friday, the New York Times published a story about an FBI probe into Trump's behavior following his firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Mr. Trump said he believed the Russian president, contradicting the conclusions of the USA intelligence community.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the report showed that the FBI leadership "opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof" after he had fired Comey.

Investigators led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller are trying to establish whether there was any collusion between Mr Trump's campaign team and the Russian state to help get him elected.

In their message to Trump, the chairmen of the Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight committees say: "Our nation's laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress". On one occasion, Trump even went so far as to confiscate his interpreter's notes to prevent others from knowing what was discussed.

"I would need a firm commitment that he will not allow any interference in the Mueller investigation", Coons said on "Fox News Sunday".

A new report said Trump has kept details of his one-on-one interactions with Russian president Vladimir Putin hidden even from his senior officials. "I mean, it's so ridiculous", he told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, without directly denying the Post story.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting", he said.

Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said Sunday that the Russian Federation investigation has always been about President Donald Trump. Russian Federation has denied interfering, and Trump has said repeatedly there was no collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has defended the decision, saying the companies are undergoing a major restructuring to "sever Deripaska's control and significantly diminish his ownership". He saids Deripaska himself and any companies he controls remain under sanctions.

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.

Warner predicted some Republicans in the GOP-controlled Senate would join Democrats in voting to override the removal of these sanctions.
