Speaking to host George Stephanopoulos Sunday on "This Week", Karl said that he's been told by sources close to the investigation that the report into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any possible collusion between President Trump's campaign and Moscow is "almost certain to be anti-climactic".

But this was not even Trump's biggest problem over the weekend, after the Times sensationally revealed the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into whether the US President had been influenced by Russian Federation when he fired FBI director James Comey in 2017.

But speaking from the White House South Lawn on Monday, he said: "I never worked for Russian Federation". "It's just a hoax".

The New York Times first reported the story, including details that the president's behavior before and after he fired Comey triggered a counterintelligence investigation.

Trump's relations with Russian Federation and Putin have clouded his presidency from the beginning and he has long dismissed the federal investigation into whether his 2016 campaign worked with Russian Federation to sway the election as a hoax and a "witch hunt".

He attacked the FBI officials behind the investigation as " known scoundrels" and "dirty cops".

During an appearance on "The Brian Kilmeade Show" on Fox News Radio, Dowd said current and former officials at the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation were out to get Trump from the beginning. McCabe made the decision to open the counterintelligence component of the investigation of Trump. If you are running a foreign policy in the United States - which, in this case, I'm referring to President Trump - you want to be able to manage that threat successfully and effectively.

A Ford spokesman said the vehicle maker now assumes that any Brexit deal would keep tariff-free trade between Britain and Europe. The plant - which the E&S understands is still likely to see jobs go - makes diesel and petrol engines for most JLR models.

"Instead, they were simply trying to undermine a president they didn't like and avenge Comey's firing".

McCabe was sacked a year ago, and a grand jury is weighing possible charges against him for allegedly misleading investigators in a leak probe.

The Washington Post also reported over the weekend that Mr. Trump went to "extraordinary lengths" to hide details of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin from top US officials.

Trump also said he doesn't know anything about what happened to the notes taken by an interpreter when he met with Putin last summer in Finland or after other meetings with the Russian leader.

But instead of a clear cut denial, he fueled a mounting outcry in Washington by merely saying that the question was "the most insulting thing I've ever been asked".

"We have those meetings all the time no big deal". Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The other extreme is that the President is completely innocent, and we discussed that too, ' Baker told the House Intelligence Committee. "The Democrats are stopping us, and they're stopping a lot of great people from getting paid".
