In a briefing with reporters, Schiff accused Republicans of blocking the inquiry from moving ahead, leaving key questions unanswered. That number could have been higher if the deregulation proposals had been in place at the time, the Trump administration and its supporters say. "Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton, I promise you". She released the transcript of Glenn Simpson's interview over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen.
"The salvo from Mr. Trump, who has long expressed hostility toward traditional press freedoms, followed a days-long effort by him and his team to undercut the unflattering portrayal of the White House in a new book by the writer Michael Wolff".
Though the White House hasn't clarified Trump's erroneous information, it appears that the President may have misread a written statement that was given to him.
"We're working with China on North Korea".
In a separate tweet, Mr Trump accused Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein of being "underhanded and a disgrace" for disclosing details of a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.
Moreover, the agreement hurt USA businesses overall and gave advantages to other countries such as China, Trump added.
Still, like other U.S. allies who share a border with Russia, Norway has been a critical United States partner in guarding against Russian aggression, and relations between Norway and Russia have soured in recent years amid Russia's increasingly aggressive posture.
The Wisconsin Republican was referring to Trump's asking during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers why the US should admit more immigrants from "shithole countries" in Africa. At the time Trump was refuting congressional testimony by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in which Comey claimed that the president had asked for Comey's loyalty.
The weapons deregulatory push is widely seen as the White House trying to deliver on Mr. Trump's campaign promises to re-energize all sectors of the American economy and shrink the US trade deficit.
Trump says the "so-called bipartisan" deal "was a big step backwards" because it doesn't fund a wall along the Mexican border.
Trump's affinity for promoting foreign military sales has been well documented over the course of his presidency but his latest remarks have raised some eyebrows due to one glaring problem: There is no indication that the F-52 fighter jet exists. "No collusion." Therefore, to the president, it "seems unlikely" there will be a need for a Trump-Mueller interview, despite reports his legal team expects just that. He declined to say whom these individuals were when asked.
WHAT IT MEANS: If the president demands that his political allies shut down an investigation into himself and his family, that's a problem.
Trump's frustration was in line with a separate request while meeting with his Cabinet for the first time this year. Trump's son invoked attorney-client privilege, telling the House panel that he did not want to reveal the contents of their conversation because it was in presence of their lawyers, according to Schiff.
Feinstein said that she was trying to set the record straight after speculation about Simpson's interview.
