  • GOP senator Senate panel needs briefing on whether Trump shared info

Associated Press writer Alan Fram contributed to this report.

Trump also indicated he may have secretly taped his conversations with Comey.

In the wake of the House healthcare reform passage on April 4, Public Policy Polling found that Democrats' lead on a "generic Congressional ballot" has almost doubled-from 47-41, last month, to 49-38.

I read the Washington Post story, and I read General McMaster's response, which tends to refute the story-rebut the story.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Trump should release the alleged transcript "if [he] has nothing to hide". "But we share some of his priorities", he said. McCain, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, could potentially hold hearings on the impact of the military's fight against ISIS. Amy Klobuchar. Utah Republican Sen. McCain also said in a statement that reports that the information was provided by a US ally and shared without the country's knowledge could mean that other countries won't share intelligence with Americans in the future.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asked Tuesday for "less drama from the White House".

Appearing Tuesday morning on Bloomberg Business, Sen.

Lawmakers expressed shock and concern Monday night at the news of Trump's disclosures, which jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State, according to current and former USA officials.

Garland, of course, was then-President Barack Obama's choice to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court - a nomination that was blocked by Republicans in the Senate in the year before Donald Trump became president and successfully nominated Neil Gorsuch.

Trump revealed to the Russians details about the Islamic State militant group that had been provided by allies, according to The Washington Post.

Yet as the House came back into session Tuesday night some Republicans from conservative districts said their constituents were not overly concerned with any aspect of the Russian Federation story.

A search for a replacement has been underway since Trump fired James Comey under a cloud of controversy last week.

How the Reds can qualify for the Champions League
I'm glad to be starting and glad to be providing some chances for the boys as well and it's a great victory for us". We wanted to avoid that factor of complacency but obviously it was there, at least subconsciously.

The official said Tuesday that doing so "could be a risk for our sources".

The two sources spoke on condition of anonymity.

For the leader of Senate Republicans, the biggest concern is that the controversy over Trump's sharing of secrets - with the successor to what Republican President Ronald Reagan once labeled the "evil empire" - is that it's distracting lawmakers from their legislative program. "The president owes the intelligence community, the American people and the Congress a full explanation".

He added, "It would be good to have Democratic support".

Germany is heavily dependent on USA intelligence.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who chairs the Foreign Relations Committee, offered less than a vote of confidence when asked if Trump could still be trusted with classified information. But in neither case did he offer any elaboration or defend Trump's revelations to the Russians.

"I'm not disputing it, I'm not admitting it I just want to know more", he said. He notes that as president, he has an "absolute right" to do this. "Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russian Federation to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.to terrorism and airline flight safety". Trump has said a decision could come before he leaves Friday for the Mideast and Europe, his first overseas trip as president.

Mr. McConnell also said a trillion-dollar tax on imports as envisioned by House Republicans "probably wouldn't pass the Senate", but said he and others like Speaker Paul D. Ryan are now negotiating.

The Royal Court says arrangements for the call were made last week.

But two US intelligence officials told NBC News that many people inside the USA intelligence community dispute McMaster's characterization.

U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democrat, is the only member of Kentucky's congressional delegation besides McConnell that has commented on the issue.
