The New York Times reported that FBI agents and some top officials became suspicious of Mr Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign but did not open an investigation at that time because they were not sure how to approach such a sensitive and important probe, according to the unnamed officials.

"If you compare objectively, President Trump's policies to Russia compared to President Obama's policies to Russia - by any measure, President Obama was much easier, was much more gentler on Russia". Manafort was convicted of financial crimes related to political work he did in Ukraine before the 2016 election as well as witness tampering.

President Trump was so intent on keeping his chats with Vladimir Putin secret, he once made his interpreter turn over his notes and promise to never discuss them, current and former USA officials told The Washington Post.

During a phone interview on "Justice with Judge Jeanine", Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday evening that the stories were "all nonsense".

A protester with a poster of Trump and Putin outside the Phoenix Convention Center where Trump was holding a rally in August 2017. The big move: He reportedly took the notes of his interpreter after meeting with Putin in Helsinki and ordered the linguist not to tell other White House officials what transpired.

Needless to say, this is all very unusual behavior for a United States president, and Trump has not attempted to hide his interactions with other world leaders. "I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written and if you read the [New York Times] article you see that they found absolutely nothing".

The Times reported that FBI agents and some top officials became suspicious of Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign but didn't open an investigation at that time because they weren't sure how to approach such a sensitive and important probe, according to the unnamed officials. "These people make it up", Trump said. And Trump's efforts to keep meetings with Putin under wraps only exacerbate this threat.

Investigators led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller are trying to establish whether there was any collusion between Mr Trump's campaign team and the Russian state to help get him elected.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the Post's report "inaccurate" in a statement.

Trump described the news report as "ridiculous". You sit with the president of various countries. Mr. Trump said he believed the Russian president, contradicting the conclusions of the USA intelligence community. The president also hinted that the Russian Federation collusion "hoax" would soon backfire badly on the perpetrators, including some individuals whom he didn't identify because it would make "front page news" if he did.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs".

Former US officials told the The Washington Post that Trump's behavior is at odds with the known practice of previous presidents, who rely on senior aides to witness such meetings.

"My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me, and some others, they said they think it's Russian Federation", the president said at the time. At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing.
