Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Posted May 14, 2017

President Donald Trump would welcome a congressional inquiry into his business ties with Russian Federation, the top White House spokesman said on Tuesday, after Republican Sen.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) questioning former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates as they testified before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Monday, May 8, 2017. "I want to know about what Clapper said, and I want to know more about Trump's business dealings".

The tweet was in reference to testimony at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

"The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?"

"The only thing we said was we saw no evidence of influencing voter tallies in any of the 50 states, but we were not in a position to judge whether - what actual outcome on the election", added Clapper.

The letter represented the latest attempt by the president to tamp down concerns about any Russian ties amid an ongoing investigation of his campaign's associates and Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

"The President, obviously, was aware of Senator Graham's suggestion after he made it today and he's fine with that", Spicer said, according to the Independent. "Yeah, I want to know about everything Russian Federation that's appropriate". In a statement announcing the dismissal, the White House said she had "betrayed the Department of Justice" and called her "weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration".

"That's right. That's what it looks like to me", Yates said. The attorneys also write that over the last 10 years, it is likely that the Trump Organization sold or rented condos, or other products, that "could have produced income attributable to Russian sources".

"I have come to the conclusion I have strong colleagues (and) our intelligence committee is doing good work", he said.
