Trump says would not mind releasing details of his conversations with Putin

Donald Trump meets Vladimir Putin at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg

US President Donald Trump avoided giving a direct answer when asked if he now is or has ever worked for Russian Federation after a published report said federal law enforcement officials were so concerned about his behaviour after he fired James Comey from the FBI that they began investigating whether Trump had been working for the US adversary against American interests.

"I do think it's curious that throughout that whole summer when these investigations started, you had (Russian President) Vladimir Putin's policies nearly being parroted by Donald Trump", Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the intelligence committee, said on the CNN "State of the Union" program.

"I have concluded that the Treasury Department's proposal is flawed and fails to sufficiently limit Oleg Deripaska's control and influence of these companies, and the Senate should move to block this misguided effort by the Trump Administration and keep these sanctions in place", the New York Democrat said in a statement.

The Times reported the counterintelligence probe was sparked in part by growing alarm about Trump's behavior, including comments he made suggesting he fired Comey over the Russian Federation investigation, which is now being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The reports, and Trump's harsh criticisms of them, come as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election continues. Mr. Trump said he believed the Russian president, contradicting the conclusions of the US intelligence community.

"This is about the most serious counterintelligence people we have in the USA government saying, 'Oh, my God, the president's words and actions lead us to conclude that somehow he has become a witting, unwitting, or half-witting pawn, certainly in some regards, to Vladimir Putin, '" Bernstein explained during his appearance on Reliable Sources.

Robert Mueller has spent 20 months investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and possible collusion between the Trump's campaign and Moscow.

Mr Trump tweeted early on 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 Mr Comey.


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 know what was reported publicly in the media", he said.

During a phone interview on "Justice with Judge Jeanine", Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday evening that the stories were "all nonsense".

Comey was dismissed, the White House said at the time, on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The report Friday cited unnamed former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

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

Mr Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the New York Times he had no knowledge of the inquiry but said that since it was opened a year-and-a-half ago and they had not heard anything, apparently "they found nothing".

Trump has repeatedly and vociferously denied collusion with the Russians. Deripaska has figured into the investigation due to his ties to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

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