Trump slams Republicans who won't 'protect' him

Soon as it broke that Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation includes certain Trump financial dealings, the president started talking about pardons. He's laying low on Trump and Russian Federation, especially as the president tweets himself up a storm.

As the investigations intensify, Trump's legal team is also undergoing a shakeup.

But the key spokesmen appeared to be operating from different playbooks. "The original piece of legislation was poorly written, but we were able to work with the House and Senate, and the administration is happy with the ability to do that and make those changes that were necessary, and we support where the legislation is now".

Trump travelled on Saturday to Norfolk, Virginia, where he spoke at a commissioning ceremony for the aircraft carrier the USS Gerald R Ford, named for the Republican president who held the White House from 1974-1977.

President Trump continued to rail that the investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the election is a "Witch Hunt" and suggested Democrats and the Kremlin are having a good laugh because of it.

The resolution asked for any records of loans or credit from a number of banks to Trump, and 22 of his closest associates, including family members and top White House and campaign advisers. He instead called for the Senate to approve legislation with more "heart". "This is the only illegal thing that has taken place, and it's a real serious problem". "FAKE NEWS", Trump wrote.

By late Sunday afternoon, Trump made clear that he does not intend to mute his attacks on his rivals.

Months ago after President Trump crossed the "once unthinkable red line" of firing James Comey, former Justice Department Spokesperson Matt Miller asked who would stand up to Donald Trump.

"It would be one of the greatest, greatest breaking of rule of law, of traditional democratic norms of what our democracy is about", Schumer said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

"Nothing else should be read into it", she said.

Both were on Sunday morning shows talking about the Russian Federation matter.

Hensarling cited open investigations by congressional committees and a special counsel into conclusions by US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election campaign to help NY businessman Trump win. "While all agree the US President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us", he wrote on Twitter.

Mr Trump set off the debate over this possible power on Saturday with a controversial tweet.

President Donald Trump says he has "complete power" to issue pardons, an assertion that comes amid investigations into Russian interference in last year's presidential election. This seems like very risky territory for Trump to be venturing out into. "There is nothing to pardon", Sekulow said. "That is really something, in my opinion, he needs to look at because what concerns me the most, is anything that can be held over the President's head that could influence USA policy, that would be among most powerful form of kompromat".

"The president does not need to pardon himself", the communications director added". There's nobody around him that has to be pardoned. Scaramucci claimed that the president "isn't thinking about pardoning nobody".
