Trump on Russia allegations: 'There is no collusion'

15 Mai, 2017, 23:46 | Author: Claudine Rigal

At that subcommittee hearing, former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, whom Trump fired in January for refusing to defend his initial temporary ban on visitors from several Muslim-majority countries and suspension of the entry of Syrian refugees, declined to answer the question of whether there was evidence of collusion publicly; in her answer, she also noted that Clapper had been unaware of the FBI investigation.

Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee advocated on "Fox News Sunday" that Trump appoint Judge Merrick Garland to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

He warned Comey last week against talking to the media, saying he had "better hope there are no tapes" of their conversations.

"The president's view is that it has to be someone who is competent and independent to protect this institution", Comey said.

Democrats and several Republicans in Congress have publicly mulled pressing the Department of Justice to appoint a special prosecutor or establishing an independent investigative body that could look into allegations of potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign in what the United States intelligence community says was Moscow's efforts to influence the U.S. election. The FBI is investigating whether there are links between Trump's inner circle and the Russian government's efforts to cyber-steal and leak emails of Trump's Democratic opponents to help Trump win the 2016 US election campaign.

But even those who had been critical of Comey expressed suspicion over the timing of Comey's firing.

Warner also said he'd like to see Comey testify at a public session of his committee.

When Trump accused Obama of "wire tapping" his Trump Tower office, Spicer said that the president's use of air quotes implied that he was talking about "a whole host of surveillance types of options".

The interview on Fox comes after a week of intense scrutiny of Trump following his unexpected dismissal of Comey. "If there are no tapes, he should apologize to both Jim Comey and the American people for misleading them".

Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah said on "Fox News Sunday" that if there are recordings, it is "inevitable" that they will be subpoenaed and have to be turned over. "Under normal circumstances, we would not consider credible any claims that the White House may have taped conversations of meetings with the president". When Trump then asked for "honest loyalty", Comey told him he would have that, said the Comey associate, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. Trump asked a Washington Post reporter last spring.

According to the Sunday's poll prepared by the NBC broadcaster and The Wall Street Journal newspaper, 15 percent of respondents prefer that the investigation should be carried out by Congress, both chambers of which have already launched such investigation.

"I think it requires somebody like me, a Republican, to call Comey before the [Senate] Judiciary Committee", the SC senator said.

"The president has a chance to clean up the mess he mostly created", Graham said, adding, "I have no evidence the president colluded with the Russians at all, but we don't know all the evidence yet".
