Putin vows to hand over Trump transcript


The US President made the comments while attending a coastguard graduation, hours after reports that he pressured former FBI James Comey to suppress an investigation into his links with Moscow.

"There may be grounds", Lynch told WBUR's Radio Boston.

Ushakov said "any contacts" with the USA president are "important" but he would not reply to the question whether the classified information that Trump reportedly shared with Lavrov and Kislyak was valuable for Russian Federation.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Comey documented each phone call and meeting he had with President Donald Trump in an apparent attempt to create a paper trail of the president's efforts to sway investigators. The FBI is investigating to determine whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russian Federation, although no evidence to support the allegation has surfaced.

"A lot of people don't do that", the Maryland Democrat said. On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to preside over the investigation, which will certainly include Flynn. "So we want to get back and keep on the track that we're on". He added that the Trump administration's account of Comey's firing had "a lot of inconsistencies".

The internal political struggle in the U.S., including anti-Russian rhetoric as one of its manifestations, can harm the United States itself, Putin said.

Trump emphatically said "no" when asked during a joint news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the White House's East Room. "He is a good guy".

It doesn't help things that Flynn's lawyers are not being clear about the level of cooperation Flynn is willing to offer following a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump on Tuesday defended an apparent decision to share intelligence information with Russian Federation just hours after his surrogates flatly denied the disclosures.

There are "a number of encounters with the president that concerned him, and he wrote very detailed memos about those instances", the person said.
