Probe of Trump-Russia links get strong support, poll finds

Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Monday charged Paul Manafort, former Donald Trump campaign chairman, and two other aides as part of an investigation into potential Russian involvement in USA elections.

"He's an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy", Trump said. The Minnesota Democrat said the latest disclosure suggests that the American people "cannot trust your word". The new information is renewing attention to how forthcoming Sessions has been with Congress.

"The emerging information about his role in the Trump campaign's interactions with Russian Federation raises serious concerns".

A personal lawyer for President Donald Trump says the president is not planning to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russian Federation probe.

A Republican official close to Clovis told CNN earlier Thursday that he remained loyal to Trump, adding that Clovis would not have fought the White House in backing away from his USDA nomination if asked.

She also said that Clovis would have had no authority to prohibit personal travel. That court filing, issued as a part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, said Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI.

But an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's affidavit supporting criminal charges against Papadopoulos said he also claimed in an email that top Trump campaign officials, who weren't identified, approved a pre-election meeting with representatives of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The USDA press office did not respond Wednesday to repeated requests for comment about the nominee's agricultural experience.

However, the former member of Trump's national security team described the idea of a foreign policy advisory board for Trump as "fake news" because the candidate rarely listened to his advisers.

Clovis tentatively was slated to have a November 9 hearing before the Senate Agriculture Committee.

Sessions replied, "I have not seen anything that would indicate collusion with the Russians to impact the campaign".

"I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn't have - did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it".

"That was a fairly stunning event for both of us and it did highlight the problem more significantly than it had been before", Sessions said, referring to Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein.

The person familiar with Sessions' activity during the campaign said his testimony has been truthful and consistent.

As the White House dismisses Papadopoulos' role as minimal, new indications are emerging that the voluntary adviser was trying to raise his stature on the campaign.

"It might be worth writing a letter and saying 'What happened?' I wouldn't mind writing a letter, because he was pretty definitive he never had that discussion about Russia", Graham of SC said in an interview. He quickly rose through the ranks of the campaign after Trump's strong finish in the Iowa caucuses, taking a national role in the organization as officials scrambled to build a campaign team.

The emails indicate multiple top level campaign officials that Papadopoulos communicated with including one listed as a "campaign supervisor".
