Sean Spicer Is Donald Trump's Twitter Translator At White House Press Briefing

Sean Spicer: Flynn Should Do 'What Is Necessary' to Testify

"I don't think we can say anything definitively at this point", Schiff told CNN's "State of the Union". "We don't want to do anything that will interfere in any case that the Justice Department may decide to bring". The Senate intelligence committee, which has thus far taken a strikingly more measured and bipartisan approach to its own Russian Federation probe, tried to keep its distance from the White House and asked that the documents uncovered by Trump aides be given to lawmakers via the appropriate agencies. The White House quickly embraced Nunes' revelations, saying they vindicated Trump's explosive and unverified claim that President Barack Obama wiretapped his NY skyscraper.

The White House has provided no evidence publicly to back this claim, and both FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers told the House intelligence committee last month that they saw no evidence of wiretapping.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn filed revised financial disclosure forms on Friday that included payments from three Russian companies with ties to the Kremlin shortly before he joined President Donald Trump's campaign.

Both committees are investigation Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election and potential collusion between Team Trump and Russian Federation hacking. He warned people to look towards Trump's statements, which he said were not "subtle".

"One of the really interesting things that people are going to see today, and I think it's something that should be celebrated, is that the president has brought a lot of people into this administration, into this White House in particular, who have been very blessed and very successful by this country, and have given up a lot to come into government", Spicer told reporters.

President Donald Trump is facing new questions about political interference in the investigations into Russian election meddling following reports that White House officials secretly funneled material to the chairman of the House intelligence committee. Nunes admitted that he visited White House grounds to meet with a source and analyze the material one day before briefing the president.

On Thursday, The New York Times identified Cohen-Watnick as one of two White House staffers who helped House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes view secret reports. Schiff asked. "If these were produced either for or by the White House, then why all the subterfuge?"

"I'll let him speak for himself". The numbers themselves were not classified, said the official.

"At the time at the General resigned he had just begun the process of submitting the form and consulting with White House counsel and Office of Government Ethics", the source said.

"The main issue in this case, is not only the unmasking of these names of private citizens, but the spreading of these names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security or an investigation into Russia's interference in the US election", a congressional source close to the investigation told Fox News.

Other President Trump aides with lucrative histories include President Trump's top economic adviser Gary Cohn, the former president of banking giant Goldman Sachs, who netted up to around $75 million in the previous year.
