Mueller Is Investigating Trump as a Russian Asset

Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

"When he takes the interpreter's notes and wants to destroy them so no one can see what was said.it raises serious questions about the relationship between this president and Putin", the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, Dick Durbin, said on ABC's "This Week". He also reportedly told Russian officials visiting the White House that firing Comey, who he called a "nut job", had relieved "great pressure because of Russia". And Trump's efforts to keep meetings with Putin under wraps only exacerbate this threat.

Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russian Federation.

Trump's denials follow a Washington Post report Saturday that "U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump's face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years".

President Trump was so intent on keeping his chats with Vladimir Putin secret, he once made his interpreter turn over his notes and promise to never discuss them, current and former United States officials told The Washington Post.

A protester with a poster of Trump and Putin outside the Phoenix Convention Center where Trump was holding a rally in August 2017. No administration officials or aides were in the room for that talk.

"I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked", he said.

Trump has defended himself against such reports, arguing, inaccurately, that he has taken a hardline stance against Russian Federation.

Reuters could not independently verify details of the Post report.

The Times article revealed that the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Trump after he fired former bureau director James Comey in 2017, suspecting the president could be working on behalf of Russian Federation.

The obstruction probe was an idea the Federal Bureau of Investigation had previously considered, but it didn't start until Comey was sacked.

According to Trump, "the FBI was in complete turmoil. because of Comey's poor leadership" and the way he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server to send some government emails.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), said in a statement that the House Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, will be taking action.

Other US officials learned that Trump had taken possession of the notes when they asked the interpreter for information about the discussion beyond a brief readout Tillerson had provided. "This is absurd", she said.

The House Republican would not further describe the contents of the Baker transcript but said it was clear, based on his direct questioning of Baker, that in May 2017 "FBI senior leadership could not accept Comey was sacked for cause and the president had the constitutional authority to terminate Comey".

But it held off on opening an investigation until the president sacked Comey, who refused to pledge allegiance to Trump and roll back the nascent Russian Federation investigation.
