Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Lindsey Graham isn't going to settle for a written pinky swear promise that Trump has no business connections to Russian Federation.

In addition to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, four congressional panels continue to investigate Russia and Russian election interference, the Senate and House intelligence committees, the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, which held the hearings Monday, and the House oversight committee.

Graham said it would be helpful to see Trump's tax records but that it was too soon to say whether he would be willing to subpoena them, according to CNN.

In his termination letter to FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, Trump wrote, "I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation".

Prior to former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates' scheduled testimony on Capitol Hill Monday, Trump tweeted that the Senate Judiciary subcommittee conducting the hearing should ask Yates whether she knows how classified information was leaked to the media shortly after her meeting with White House counsel Don McGahn.

Graham cautioned that his judiciary subcommittee might have to "steer clear" of the matter if it conflicts with the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, and he said he also wants to learn about whether the identities of Americans were unmasked and unlawfully leaked to the press for political purposes. Surely Trump's business ties, if any, and his possible untruthfulness are germane to the investigation.

Penguins' Crosby passes concussion test, might play Game 5
It's up to those star players (the envy of every other team in the NHL) to do something about this elimination game. Trotz "wouldn't be surprised" if he saw Crosby's familiar No. 87 on Saturday night. "That's just what we need".

Spicer repeated some variation of the line during the Trump transition phrase and has continued to find use for it during the Trump presidency. The White House kept Flynn on staff for 18 days before he was ultimately dismissed by Trump, raising questions about why the then-national security adviser continued to hold such a high-profile position despite the concerns from Yates.

On February 9, four days before Flynn was sacked as national security adviser, the Washington Post reported that Flynn had "privately discussed us sanctions against Russian Federation with that country's ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials".

"That's right. That's what it looks like to me", Yates said.

"I don't know of any business associations that give me pause for concern", he said. "If the intelligence community is capturing my conversations, because they are focused on. the guy I am talking to, I want to know what they can do with my part of the conversation". Because somebody leaked it.

"Neither one of you did it?" And who did she share that with.
