Specifically, the Post reported that current and former intelligence officials described Trump making separate asks of Coats and Rogers to deny the existence of any evidence pointing to collusion during the 2016 campaign.
Over the weekend, news broke that the House intelligence panel has reached out to a Trump presidential campaign communications adviser, Michael Caputo, to "produce certain documents and other materials to the Committee and participate in a voluntary, transcribed interview at the Committee's offices", according to a copy of a May 9 letter obtained by CNN.
These latest disclosures aren't the first sign that Trump has sought to rebuff investigations into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation, and into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, at almost every turn.
The White House told ABC News in response to the story that it "does not confirm or deny unsubstantiated claims based on illegal leaks from anonymous individuals". "The president will continue to focus on his agenda that he was elected to pursue by the American people".
The New York Times reported last Friday that Trump talked to Lavrov at the White House the day after he chose to fire Comey. It is not necessary to note they involve Hillary and Bill Clinton.
The man Donald Trump allegedly called "a good guy", in a highly controversial conversation with then-FBI director James Comey, stood accused Monday evening of a stark new violation of law, on the heels of allegations that he had failed to disclose ties to foreign governments as he joined the Trump administration.
The White House did not immediately comment on Cummings' accusation against Flynn.
"There's no doubt this cloud is impacting everything else and we need to get over this once and for all", Rubio told CNN over the weekend. The report said Moscow eventually developed a preference for Trump.
Trump has previously indicated that the Russian Federation investigation was a motivating factor in his decision to fire Comey. Trump also seems to be unaware that occasionally the secret police like to write things down.
Marco Rubio said the testimony, anticipated early next month, could shed some light on whether the White House attempted to obstruct justice in the Russian Federation investigation.
Congressional investigators have requested copies of Comey's memos and testimony from the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief himself.
Comey is expected to testify in an open hearing sometime after Memorial Day.
That criminal investigation will exist simultaneously with the House and Senate intelligence committee investigations, Warner said. The source says Comey likely will be limited in what he can say now that the Russian Federation probe is in the hands of Mueller.
During Tuesday's hearing, which was held to discuss worldwide threats, committee chairman Sen.
On Monday, the Associated Press reported that Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and decline a subpoena issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee for documents related to his interactions with Russian officials from June 2015 to January 2017.
So now you have them trying everything they can every day to get rid of President Trump.
