Trump Publicly Wavering on Mueller Interview

"Republicans should finally take control!"

Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, referred Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled a dossier with allegations concerning President Trump and Russian Federation, to the Justice Department for investigation.

Schiff placed the blame largely on Republican Devin Nunes, saying the GOP chairman of the committee - who stepped aside from running the investigation for much of past year - has blocked dozens of requests for witnesses and subpoenas, with the support of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on House Intelligence, told reporters Thursday that "it's my expectation" Bannon will meet with his panel, but declined to specify when.

Dianne Feinstein, a senior Democrat senator, this week released a 312-page transcript of previously secret testimony given to Congress by Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, as part of the official inquiry into Mr Trump's alleged links to Russian Federation. "Must have tough Primary!"

"It's not because all Norwegians are rich", she said in the interview.

As the top Democrat on the committee, she didn't need authorisation from Mr Grassley to release it.

The transcript of the interview with Simpson that Feinstein released earlier this week buttresses that point.

Trump, who has been faced with criticism from the Republican base over softening his stance, told a questioner that the Bill must include border security features, including funding for his pet project to build a wall along the Mexican border.

"The language used by me at the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", he said.

Mr Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

Republicans and Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee were working together on an investigation, as well, but that ended abruptly in June when the committee's GOP chairman, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, resigned from Congress. "Our EPA (environment protection agency) and our EPA commissioners are very, very powerful, in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air, but we also want businesses that can compete", he said.

"Hillary Clinton had an interview where she wasn't sworn in, she wasn't given the oath, they didn't take notes, they didn't record, and it was done on the 4th of July weekend".

Trump repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, as well, and said to the WSJ, "There was no obstruction".

Ms Feinstein also sits on the Senate intelligence committee, which is conducting its own investigation into the Russian interference and whether Mr Trump's campaign was in any way involved.

Among the questions Schiff says the probe has not answered: whether the former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos - who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts over Russian Federation - had communications with the Trump campaign about those efforts.

Though the White House hasn't clarified Trump's erroneous information, it appears that the President may have misread a written statement that was given to him. "Putin can't love that", he said.
