Trump reportedly pressured Whitaker to intervene in Cohen probe

Trump denies report he asked for US attorney to un-recuse from Cohen case ‘No I don’t know who gave you that

The report reveals for the first time ever that President Donald Trump has repeatedly complained about being investigated by FBI agents who hated him so much they were willing to violate every code of ethics to overturn an election by creating a false narrative about some Russian mishigas that never happened.

"All things that were in complete contrast to the reality that I had just seen at Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters", he said, pointing out that his colleagues were "distressed and shocked" and didn't understand the reasons behind it.

"But in demonizing the free press as the enemy, simply for performing its role of asking hard questions and bringing uncomfortable information to light, President Trump is retreating from a distinctly American principle.It's a principle that previous occupants of the Oval Office fiercely defended regardless of their politics, party affiliation, or complaints about how they were covered". "I don't know who gave you that", Trump told reporters when asked about the story.

"I realized that he was offering me the opportunity to adopt his narrative", he said of the president's comments. The president has made some statements that I didn't agree with but if you look at the policy towards Russian Federation he's been much harder on Russian Federation than the previous administration. "Would I go along with the facts and the circumstances that he was trying to engineer or was I on the other side?"

In a new in-depth report Monday on Trump's efforts to intimidate and defame the investigators, the New York Times documented many new and revealing details of this campaign.

Sandmann, 16, was wearing a pro-Trump "Make America Great Again" hat during the encounter.

In fact, McCabe held the position for almost three months before it was filled.

The President targeted Jeff Sessions with repeated attacks after the then-Attorney-General recused himself from Mr Mueller's investigation, before eventually firing him.

"I was very clear describing the steps that we had taken and the reasons for those steps", McCabe said Thursday, of his May 17 meeting with the so-called Gang of Eight. At the time, his statement was shocking as the newly inaugurated leader of a country that prides itself on press freedoms. "We actually have a Kremlin agent in the White House".

"This was the illegal and treasonous "insurance policy" in full action".

McCabe elaborated on his meeting with the Gang of Eight in which he informed them of the span of the Russian Federation probe, including the ongoing investigations of four Trump associates as well as the opening of an investigation of Trump.
