"And what has been shown is no collusion, no collusion".
The Times reported "Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear critical of Mr. Trump". "He has pled guilty to those lies", Trump said on Twitter while he was in NY for a fundraising trip.
In Flynn's plea deal, he will testify Trump "directed him to make contact" with the Russians during the campaign. During the campaign, Kislyak met several Trump aides, including then-Sen. Not only did a lengthy list of his own advisers make secret contact with Russian officials during the campaign, but his own family members did.
Hours after he insisted there was "absolutely no collusion" with Russian Federation, the president - writing on Twitter - appeared to mourn Flynn's departure because his actions during the presidential transition "were lawful". Trump said in a tweet on Saturday.More news: Michael Flynn to Plead Guilty Over False Statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation

The president has also singled out the F.B.I.'s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, whose wife in 2015 ran for a State Senate seat in Virginia as a Democrat and accepted almost $500,000 in contributions from the political organization of Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime friend of the Clintons.
Trump said Saturday that he's not anxious about what Flynn would disclose as part of his plea deal with Mueller's team.
Flynn only held his position as Trump's national security adviser for 24 days.
Trump was greeted in NY by protesters chanting "Lock him up", a reference to the "Lock her up" rallying cry used by both Trump and Flynn during the 2016 campaign.
The document also says Flynn falsely said he did not ask Kislyak to delay the vote on the UN Security Council resolution. Whatever compromise is reached, both chambers will again have to pass it. His disappointment that the FBI, one of the last agencies to lose its good standing among the American people, had succumbed to blatant partisan politics and could no longer be trusted on points of law enforcement and investigation was palpable. and heart-breaking.
Trump was much more content Saturday to talk to reporters about the taxes after Senate Republicans delivered him a rare legislative victory early Saturday morning, passing the sweeping tax plan they'd written hours earlier in a partyline vote. "Now we go on to conference, and something lovely is going to come out of that mixer". "We passed the largest tax cuts in the history of our country and many other things along with it".
