Trump on Mueller probe: I'm 'not angry at anybody'

Former Trump campaign co-chairman Sam Clovis is facing renewed opposition to his nomination to serve as the Agriculture Department's chief scientist amid revelations that he encouraged a campaign adviser to foster ties with Russian officials.
This official said Papadopoulos exchanged emails "constantly" on foreign policy matters with the Trump team during the campaign. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat, who accused him of having moved the "goalpost" in his denials about his contacts with the ambassador.
Court documents unsealed Monday revealed that Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in early October to making false statement to FBI investigators about his contacts with foreigners claiming to have high-level Russian connections.
It is a crime to lie under oath to Congress. Sessions says that his answers were truthful because his meetings with Kislyak weren't specifically about the campaign.
All three men were investigated as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to secure the former reality-TV star's victory over Hillary Clinton a year ago.
In a letter dated Wednesday and obtained by Politico, Sam Clovis said that he was "eternally grateful and humbled" by the president's nomination.
Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 in Republican leadership who serves on the intelligence and judiciary panels, said he was unaware of Sessions' attendance at that meeting until now.
Ryan said people care about the investigation, but "the reality is most Ohioans are very busy just trying to make ends meet".
Papadopoulos' disclosure offers a second instance in which a Trump campaign official sough incriminating information on Clinton from Russian sources.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is once again under scrutiny on Capitol Hill regarding his candor about Russia and the Trump campaign amid revelations that he rejected a suggestion to convene a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump previous year. Trump once called him an "excellent guy".
The White House did not respond to request for further comment. "As far as Sessions seemed to be concerned, when he shut down this idea of Papadopoulos engaging with Russian Federation, that was the end of it and he moved the meeting along to other issues".
But an email from Papadopoulos included in the court filings made public on Monday suggests someone in the Trump camp may have actually okayed a meeting between campaign officials and the Russian government. "His lack of qualifications and long history of politically divisive statements were disqualifying, and the recent news surrounding his time as co-chair of the Trump campaign has raised even morequestions".
Sessions replied: "I'm not aware of any of those activities".
He largely adhered to that principle during the five-hour hearing, refusing to say what Trump told him about his reasons for wanting to fire Comey, whether Trump confided in him his concern about "lifting the cloud" of the Russian Federation investigation and whether he had asked him to drop a criminal case against Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona.
In the wake of the Post'sreport, Clovis' attorney said that inside the campaign, Clovis always "vigorously" opposed any Russian trip for Trump or staff.
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.
"I don't think anybody should be spiking the football on this", he said.
But the chairman of Trump's national security team, then Alabama senator and now attorney general Jeff Sessions, shut down the idea of a Putin meeting at the March 31, 2016, gathering, according to the source.
Asked if Sessions should amend his testimony before his committee, Grassley told CNN: "I'm looking into it".
