Warner and Johnson spoke on CNN's "State of the Union", while Coons and Graham appeared on "Fox News Sunday".

President Trump called a recent New York Times article revealing that he had been the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation after he fired former director James Comey "very horrible" and a "great insult".

"I call him "Lying James Comey" - he did a bad job as Federal Bureau of Investigation director", Trump told Pirro.

US Special Counsel Robert Mueller took over the investigation into Mr Trump days after the FBI opened it, as he examined allegations of Russian election interference, the Times reported.

Three Democrats who head influential House committees are warning President Donald Trump not to obstruct their efforts to question his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Without hesitation, the president fired back, "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked. I do think what we can all agree on is that the Mueller investigation should reach its conclusion".

"It's up to him in terms of who he wants to read into his conversations with world leaders", Johnson said, adding: "In the end I'm going to judge this president based on his actions".

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

He and other Democratic senators said this report and others within the past week questioning Trump's behavior toward Russian Federation give new urgency to the need for the Mueller investigation to be allowed to run its course.

Polish state television TVP reported that the men have proclaimed their innocence, but Zaryn said he could not confirm that. Poland has arrested a Chinese employee of Huawei and a Polish cyber business specialist on allegations of spying.

Trump never answered Pirro's question directly.

FBI agents and senior officials began to suspect connections between Trump and Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign but pushed off an investigation partially because they were unsure how to execute such a massive and sensitive operation, sources told the Times.

Passage of the resolution of disapproval of Treasury's decision would require the approval of both the Democratic-majority house and the Senate, led by Trump's fellow Republicans who are unlikely to break with his policy.

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the report showed that the FBI leadership "opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof" after he had fired Comey.

With new Washington Post reporting that President Donald Trump may have taken unprecedented, and potentially illegal, measures to hide the contents of private conversations with President Vladimir Putin, we are providing you with an update on several ongoing Russian threat streams. The report cited unnamed current and former USA officials. The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle.

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting", he said of a closed-door, one-on-one meeting with Putin in Helsinki.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation", similarly dismissed the Post report, arguing that Trump's administration has been tough on Russian Federation and that concerns about the president's affinity for Putin are unfounded.

"It's our responsibility to try to find out, in the best interest of the country, what really has gone on with Putin and Trump", Engel told NPR's Sarah McCammon Sunday on All Things Considered.
