Trump won't say if he'll meet with Mueller

The report accuses Putin of leading two decades worth of election meddling across the globe

Congressional Republicans, other Trump surrogates and Fox News and Breitbart News continue to mount an aggressive offensive on behalf of the increasingly deranged Trump in a series of diversionary attacks on Mueller, dossier author Christopher Steele and, of course, Hillary Clinton.

- While firmly criticizing the Russian Federation investigation, President Donald Trump was non-committal on whether he would agree to a possible interview with the U.S. Justice Department's special counsel Robert Mueller.

Close advisers and friends of President Donald Trump are warning him not to sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, with some expressing skepticism that there would be any circumstance in which it makes sense to voluntarily submit to an interview, according to multiple sources familiar with the ongoing discussions.

"For 11 months they've had this phony cloud over this administration, over our government". And it has hurt our government. "It was a Democrat hoax".

Smith went on to note how Trump's associates faced indictments and, in some cases, pleaded guilty to charges brought as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the president's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

"My understanding was that they believed Chris at this point - that they believed Chris might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump Organisation", Mr Simpson said.

Mueller's team has come under fire from Republicans with accusations of bias.

President Donald Trump appeared to call for an end to the investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election, urging Republicans to "take control" in a tweet Wednesday morning. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes.

Senate Democrats released an extensive report on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying that it fit into a almost two-decade pattern of meddling with governments around the world.

In a separate tweet Wednesday morning, Trump accused Democratic Sen. "Must have tough Primary!"

The material was not classified, and Ms Feinstein said that she did not do anything illegal.

In September, investigators for Mueller obtained tens of thousands of emails that related to 13 senior Trump transition officials. Certainly I'll see what happens.

Grassley said in an angry news release on Tuesday that he was "confounded" by the release and argued that it could undermine attempts to get additional witnesses.

Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion. The thought in the back of Republican minds is simple: what happens to Trump and the party if a recession hits? Following his lead, several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations. "But only 32 percent of Democrats say the same". The source says that even though the President did nothing wrong, he will put himself in jeopardy if questioned in a recorded interview.

No formal request has been made and no date has been set.

The 71-year-old president has strenuously denied that his campaign worked with Russian Federation to undermine the campaign of Trump's rival Hillary Clinton.

Feinstein's move amounted to retaliation for Senators Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham lodging a criminal referral to the Justice Department for the former British spy Christopher Steele. Asked about Trump's tweet, she brushed off the idea that the release had anything to do with her election.

"This is moving faster than anyone really realises", the person said. Despite the expansion of Mueller's team to 17 prosecutors, President Donald Trump maintains that the investigation is bogus.
