Trump reportedly asked Comey to consider imprisoning members of the press

"No. No. Next question", Mr Trump said when asked if he had asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop the bureau's investigation, which a memo written by Mr Comey reportedly alleges.

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Democratic Sen.

Russia has repeatedly said that anti-Russian politicians in the United States are using groundless fears of closer ties with Moscow to sabotage any rapprochement and damage Trump in the process.

Following Comey's abrupt dismissal, Trump contradicted his communications staff on the reason for firing him and admitted it was partially because of how Comey was handling the Russian investigation, touching off obstruction of justices allegations. "Things will work out just fine", Trump said in his commencement address on Wednesday. "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!"

The news that Trump wants to bring Flynn back to the White House isn't shocking, at least relative to what we've come to expect from Trump.

'The idea that the leader of an adversarial nation could be in a position to offer clarity on a scandal involving the US President tells you everything you need to know about how extraordinary this moment is'.

The White House was also warned by acting attorney general Sally Yates that Flynn might be blackmailed by the Russians for misrepresenting his conversation with the Russian ambassador to Vice President Mike Pence. "He is a good guy". "When we get to the bottom of it, then we can make the appropriate decisions, and sometimes those are difficult and hard decisions you have to make".

Israeli officials have declined to confirm whether they were the source of the information Trump shared, but have been quick to say counterterrorism coordination with the U.S.is strong. Santos is expected to ask Mr. Trump, who is making cuts to foreign aid, to renew funding to support a peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces.
