Democrats want to interview Trump's daughter in Russian Federation probe

Numerous congressional committees along with special counsel Robert Mueller are now investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Trump's team and Moscow during the race.

For his part, President Trump has continually protested his innocence, describing the investigation as "the single greatest Witch Hunt in American history", while Republican lawmakers have begun to grumble that Mueller's team is filled with Democrat-leaning lawyers.

While Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating ties between Russian Federation and Trump's inner circle on behalf of the Justice Department, House and Senate investigations were launched with the hope that Republicans and Democrats would set party interests aside and join forces in search of the truth.

Trump's comments came during a joint news conference with Erna Solberg, the prime minister of Norway.

When asked about an interview with Mueller Trump said, "There has been no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, or Trump and Russians, no collusion".

Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he'd provide an interview to Mueller's team.

The dodge was a marked change from June, when Trump defended his firing of FBI Director James Comey, denying that it was related to his handling of the Russian Federation investigation, and said he would "100 percent" be willing to give a sworn statement to Mueller.

Trump to take 'strong look' at U.S. libel laws amid book controversy
Sullivan ruling set the malice standard for libel. "He's trying to usurp the judiciary, and it's not going to work", Roth said. They wouldn't cease and desist, so now President Trump is targeting libel laws in an effort to silence his critics.

He said he'd be "glad to" speak to Mr Mueller about it.

Some of Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress have been saying they expect the House Intelligence probe and other congressional investigations to wrap up quickly. With Trump's encouragement as he nears a year in office, multiple GOP-led congressional committees are now investigating the FBI and whether the bureau conspired against the president during the campaign.

In a separate tweet, Mr Trump accused Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign. Panel heads Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) continue to cooperate as they interview witnesses. I suppose it's also technically possible that the F-52 is such a super-secret new fighter that we've never heard of it before now, although I'm not convinced that Norway would be the number-one market for that kind of tech.

Some criminal law experts have expressed skepticism about the transition's claims to legal ownership of the emails, but Langhofer and other transition officials insist that Beckler had agreed with Trump for America both in phone conversations and in the sought-after memo that the emails belonged to the transition.

"This may be the only time where the country would benefit from the national security point of view if the president of the United States were watching cartoons in the morning instead of something else", he said.

"Never before in American history has so clear a threat to national security been so clearly ignored by a USA president", the report asserts. Asked about Trump's tweet, she brushed off the idea that the release had anything to do with her election. The two leaders also discussed military cooperation, trade and their different responses to climate change. "I hope we do", Trump said.
