Former Watergate prosecutor: 'Conspiracy,' not collusion, is essential difficulty in Russian Federation investigation

GOP Senators recommend FBI probe of Trump 'dossier' author Steele Former Watergate prosecutor: 'Conspiracy,' not collusion, is essential difficulty in Russian Federation investigation

"That is what I do, is I do things proper", Trump told reporters at a press conference in the Camp David, a picturesque presidential retreat of Maryland, where he is holding meetings with his Republican leaders in the Congress.

Trump Rejecting all claims that he somehow colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 election, President Donald Trump said the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller makes the country "look very bad" and hoped it would end soon. He says the investigation is "very, very bad for our county" and making "our country look foolish". "So the sooner it's worked out, the better it is for the country".

The Los Angeles Times reports that Ivanka Trump, who did not attend the meeting, spoke at the elevator with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin.

"There's been no collusion. The story, by the way, in The Times was way off, or at least off", Trump said in response to a question.

A number of news outlets, including The Associated Press, have reported that Trump directed his White House counsel to tell Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to withdraw from the Justice Department's investigation into potential ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

"I guess the collusion now is dead".

"Even if you thought that this [meeting] was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad ..., and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", Steve Bannon said in the new Michael Wolff book, Fire and Fury. "I hope that he's going to be fair".

"I think the big enchilada here is the conspiracy to break into the Democratic National Committee [DNC] in violation of the federal computer crime law and to use those emails to help get elected", Ackerman.

The FBI and the DOJ have come under increased scrutiny by Republican lawmakers, after it was revealed that several staff members seconded to Mueller's investigation have engaged in improper behavior. "But the only collusion is between Hillary and the Russians and the DNC", he said.
