In an interview with ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Durbin noted key details about Putin's past and his actions as Russia's president: "This man who is a former KGB agent, never been a friend of the United States, invaded our allies, threatens us around the world, and tries his damnedest to undermine our elections".

If one takes for good coin the main contention of the reports by the two newspapers, their acquiescence in a potential Trump declaration of emergency rule is inexplicable. "They've actually gotten me wrong for many years before that". Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump never answered Pirro directly, but went on to assert that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has. As the senator from IL said, "It's within his power to hold these investigations, and he should".

John Delaney, a Maryland Democrat who has announced a run for the White House, called Trump's behavior toward Russian Federation "highly suspicious", adding, "We haven't had a president who has been as supportive of Vladimir Putin in decades".

President Donald Trump on Saturday said the idea that he ever worked for Russian Federation was "insulting", and he slammed a New York Times article regarding his potential ties to Russian Federation as "the most insulting article".

The inquiry carried explosive implications.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

Trump tweeted early 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 Comey.

On Sunday, Cruz told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the media's focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's campaign to disrupt the 2016 US presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital.

The interview went on for more than 20 minutes and took place during Fox News host Jeanine Pirro's 9 p.m. ET slot.

Trump never answered Pirro's question directly, but went on to say that no president has taken a harder stance against Russian Federation than he has.

"I know what the president likes to do". "I want to learn more than just the allegations in the press". "What kind of checks and balances are there?"

Top Republican lawmakers appeared unfazed Sunday by reports that President Donald Trump has "gone to extraordinary lengths" to hide his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the last two years. But Trump waved off their queries, leaving the officials to rely exclusively on a brief readout that Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state at the time, had provided to the news media, according to the former official. US officials learned of Trump's actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

'It was a great insult, and the New York Times is a disaster as a paper, ' Trump said.

Thursday, prior to the publishing of The Washington Post's story, Sen.

In a Fox News op-ed, McCarthy wrote about what he called on Sunday the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department's "flawed analysis".
