WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House said on Friday that President Donald Trump‘s former campaign manager’s decision to plead guilty to two criminal counts and to cooperate with a probe into Russian election meddling had nothing to do with Trump‘s 2016 victory.
Omarosa said that Trump knew in advance about the emails that Russia stole from the Clinton campaign before they were leaked.
If Democrats take back the House, Leader Nancy Pelosi is ready to hit the ground running to get the truth on Russia while working to advance the Democratic "For the People" agenda on health care, better wages and cleaning up the corruption in D.C., she told Sarah Jones in an exclusive interview.
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, brought up the possibility that Trump may be compromised because he was laundering money for Russia,
President Donald Trump’s latest controversies surrounding Russia have not gone over well with Republicans in Congress. But even worse for the GOP, they have not gone over well with the majority of American voters. As a result, Republicans on Capitol Hill are now desperately trying to find a way to distance themselves from the actions (and the words) of the president in order to avoid what they fear might be a disaster in this fall’s midterm elections.
Trump tried to say that he supported the intelligence agencies, and as he was lying, the lights went out at the White House.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has drawn a new accusation of bank fraud from U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office, according to court documents.
"As desperately as President Trump insists that the Special Counsel investigation is a ‘hoax’, these latest indictments build on multiple guilty pleas and indictments of several Trump campaign officials, demonstrating the gravity of the Trump-Russia scandal," Leader Pelosi said, urging support for Mueller's investigation to follow the facts.
Senator Ben Stasse (R-NE) thinks the indictment was Mueller putting Moscow on notice and giving Washington a wake-up call that Russia is coming for us in 2018 and 2020 and we have to take the threat seriously.
Steve Bannon, a former top adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, declined to answer many questions during his second closed-door meeting with the U.S. House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, frustrating members of the panel, Republican and Democratic committee leaders said.

Former U.S. president George W. Bush accused Russia on Thursday of meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election, calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a "brilliant tactician".
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) took his first walk-back Secret Society conspiracy step on Wednesday, but Thursday he fled.
Now that he's fed the the right-wing media and base yet another false narrative and absurd conspiracy to feast upon, the Republican Senator says it might have all been written in jest.
The Republican chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee said on Thursday he wanted to start releasing the transcripts of interviews the committee has done about a meeting at Trump Tower seen as central to investigations of Russia and the 2016 U.S. election.
The man who in less than a year could be leading the House Russia investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff, just destroyed all of Trump's efforts to distance himself from the players in the Russia scandal.
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday he now recalls a meeting in March 2016 that has come under scrutiny as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether President Donald Trump's election campaign colluded with Russia.
Senate Democrats on Thursday demanded that Attorney General Jeff Sessions be recalled to testify on the Trump campaign's Russia contacts following the disclosure of an effort to set up a meeting for then-Republican candidate Donald Trump with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
That left some Trump associates worried about what or whom Mueller would target next, despite the White House's public dismissal of the developments as unrelated to the president and his campaign.
"There were a lot more states," Republican Senator Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told reporters at the U.S. Capitol.
Roger Stone told the media Tuesday after testifying in a closed hearing on the Trump Russia probe of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee that he "expressed my view" that he is "aware of no evidence whatsoever of collusion by the Russian state or the Trump campaign or anyone associated with Donald Trump."
