Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Earlier on Monday, during a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing, James Clapper, the former director of National Intelligence, had declined to answer Graham's question about Trump's alleged links with Russian Federation, saying that his comments could prejudice ongoing investigations.

Scott said his focus for now is in seeing the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation play out with efficiency and integrity, regardless of what the administration does or does not do. "Yeah, I want to know about everything Russian Federation that's appropriate".

People on the left are looking forward to hearing from the former acting attorney general, who they consider a hero for refusing to defend Trump's executive order in January.

The White House said it would welcome any fact-finding by Graham and the subcommittee, which he chairs, saying the president has no business ties to Russian Federation.

The report quoted "current and former USA officials". Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., listens at right. "But I mean, I think there's - the one issue is I don't think there's any question by any account that there was classified information inappropriately shared on an unclassified system to an unclear person". Those names are usually kept secret but can be unmasked.

"I have not asked the president or the staff about that", Spicer replied.

"I have no evidence of collusion", he said.

Graham also asked the two, "How did you know that General Flynn was talking to the Russians - who told you?"

"I mean, it could be Russian Federation, but it could also be China".

Yates added that she often received intelligence reports "where the name of the American citizen is already unmasked, and it's unmasked by the intel agency because, not based on anybody's request, but because the name of that citizen is essential". The committee then canceled the scheduled hearing, allegedly because the White House was concerned about what she might say about Flynn.

"If he's not under investigation, the country needs to know", Graham continued, "because when he sits down with world leaders, I don't want a cloud over his head".
