  • Trump: Putin Would Prefer Tree Hugger Clinton Over Me

The president, taking to Twitter earlier on Wednesday, defended his son, Donald Trump Jr., who released emails a day earlier showing the junior Trump welcomed Russian help last year in an attempt to obtain damaging information about his presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton. "He said absolutely not", Trump said.

Well, who are the people saying that? This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. "Sad!" Trump tweeted, hours before he was scheduled to leave Washington for a visit to France.

The scope of congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential contest came into sharper focus on Wednesday as lawmakers said they intended to question the former chairman of the Trump campaign and to determine whether Russian social media "trolls" were connected to Trump's election efforts.

"Obviously it would be appropriate for anybody to get into anything that went on at that meeting, and he was at that meeting", Grassley told Iowa reporters.

The controversy spilled over on Wednesday into the Senate confirmation hearing for Trump's nominee to lead the FBI, Christopher Wray, named after the president fired FBI director James Comey in May in frustration over the persistent Russia probe.

"I'm a big military person", said Trump. The push to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia link is not, as the president has said, "fake news".

Sekulow said the president was not being investigated by Mueller. "And that's why I say, why would he want me?" When you have The Washington Post and everything that they've done.

"There was zero coordination".

There was a Media Research article out yesterday that showed, in terms of negative articles about different issues involving the two candidates now, your father, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton, that negative media - that your father gets four to five to six times as much negative coverage as Hillary Clinton does, and there's a lot of issues out there that they could be covering, they're not covering.

"That's what Putin doesn't like about me", the president added.

On climate change, Macron said that it was an area where the two nations "have a number of disagreements" but that he remains extremely attached to the framework of the Paris Climate Agreement, which he labeled "a major international breakthrough". "I have no idea if they interfered".

While discussing with CBN Founder Pat Robertson his G20 meeting with Putin, Trump explained that he believes it's important for the U.S. and Russia as "tremendously powerful nuclear power [s]" to have a good relationship.

The latest disclosures all but ensure the president's son will come under scrutiny by investigators in Congress and at the FBI who are probing whether Trump's team was in the know.

"We had a good meeting..."

"We never had any contact with this lawyer", Peskov said. "She doesn't have even the slightest relation to us".
