Senator disputes Trump's claim on Russia policy

Trump blasts FBI probe into whether he worked for Russia

Ratcliffe said he was surprised to read Friday's New York Times report, which quoted part of his Baker interview, and reported that after the Comey firing "law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president's behavior" that they began investigating whether Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation. On the other was the possibility that Trump didn't have an improper relationship with the Kremlin and was acting within the bounds of his executive authority, the transcripts show.

Mr. Trump said he is "not keeping anything under wraps, I couldn't care less", adding that "anybody could have listened to that meeting. The other extreme is that the President is completely innocent, and we discussed that too", Baker told House investigators previous year.

A separate source said Baker told investigators the internal FBI debate over the president's decision to fire Comey on May 9, 2017, included personnel who have since left the bureau for cause, retired, or have been demoted.

Trump's behavior in the days around Comey's May 2017 firing helped trigger the counterintelligence part of the probe, according to the newspaper. The report cited unnamed current and former USA officials.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) claimed on Sunday that Americans outside of Washington D.C. aren't "concerned" about special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into potential Trump collusion with Russian Federation. Trump's news conference in Helsinki, in which he questioned his own intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 election, prompted bipartisan criticism.

Robert Mueller took over the investigation when he was appointed special counsel soon after Comey's firing. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CBS' "Face the Nation" that any notion the president was a threat to USA security "is absolutely ludicrous".

Ocasio-Cortez’s Attacks on Democrats Have Party Scrambling for Damage Control
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tapped into the nerd fanbase motherlode Friday when she quoted Watchmen author Alan Moore . In a comparison that Ocasio-Cortez would surely hate, politicos have pointed out that the NY rep. has "Trumpian" tendencies.

He said that he fired Comey because he was "a awful liar, and he did a bad job as the FBI director" and called the former director's handling of the Clinton email probe "one of the biggest screw-ups that anybody's ever seen as an investigation".

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report, which said he went to great lengths to hide details of his discussions with Putin. "That meeting is up for grabs". The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

"I mean, I had a conversation like every president does".

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times he had no knowledge of the counterintelligence inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they hadn't heard anything, apparently "they found nothing". "I want to see this wall get built".

Catherine Herridge is an award-winning Chief Intelligence correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC) based in Washington, D.C. She covers intelligence, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security. Deripaska has figured into the investigation due to his ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shake hands as they hold a joint news conference after their meeting in Helsinki, Finland, on Mon., July 16, 2018.
