Trump's First Month 'Achieving Results For American People:' White House

Unidentified officials were quoted saying the transcripts showed the two men discussing sanctions imposed on Russian Federation by former President Barack Obama in late December for Moscow's meddling in the US election aimed at helping Trump win. Flynn told Pence that he had not spoken about sanctions with Kislyak, an assertion that Pence later repeated on television. Yet, the fact remains: the Federal Bureau of Investigation provided a report about the conversation that Michael Flynn had had, and the content of the conversation did not correspond to the information that Flynn then provided to vice president and president. A cabinet member, Michael Flynn, resigned due to Russian ties. But Flynn did not need to remember what he said or did not say; USA intelligence agencies recorded his phone calls.

Flynn's promise to review the case evidently encouraged Putin to forgo the usual tit-for-tat retaliation, despite an initial Kremlin statement that there was "no alternative to reciprocal measures".

Flynn also has the distinction of being part of the only father-son team fired by the same president.

Amid a slew of reports suggesting improper contact between members of President Donald Trump's inner circle and Russia, Trump says the media is missing the real problem: leaks.

Then CNN's Jim Acosta tried to accost Trump about his lack of credibility when it came to comments about leaking - because, after all, it was he who encouraged leaking during the campaign (the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Wikileaks release of Hillary's 33,000 missing emails).

This is the second time Flynn lied to Pence since the election. The White House also sent conflicting signals about whether the president will send Congress his own legislative blueprints or let lawmakers drive the process. Mr Trump's team immediately denied the claims. "In light of this, we request that your office begin an immediate investigation into whether classified information was mishandled here". But that's not really very amusing when you consider that he was sacked by one for his erratic behavior and from the other because he was implicated in a scandal concerning possible connections to the Russian government.

The whole world was expecting Russia's President Vladimir Putin would immediately respond with the old quid pro quo - expulsions and maybe more. This time he held a self-serving "campaign rally" created to show his supporters and himself that he has not repeatedly failed and that his historically low approval ratings are "fake news". "We're going to use our oversight role of the intelligence community to look at all aspects of Russian involvement in our elections".

There is nothing to be surprised about the fact that Trump's administration found themselves confronting the secret service, the electorate, and many high-ranking politicians.

On Sunday, White House advisers held a three-hour meeting on health care at Trump's South Florida club, their third lengthy discussion on the topic in four days.

Trump performs best in the most recent Fox News Poll, with a 48% approval and 47% disapproval.

Trump is reportedly interviewing candidates shortlisted for the position of national security adviser on the property over the weekend.

"Quite a few" seems like a number greater than just Michael Flynn.

"Plants and factories are already starting to move back into the United States and big league - Ford, General Motors, so many of them".

O'Nell Kennedy, communications director for the College Democrats, said she is less than satisfied with Trump's performance thus far. That's one reason investigators keep asking what contacts the Trump team had with Russian Federation before the election.
