Trump preparing certified letter attesting to no Russia ties

Responding to questions from reporters about comments by Senator Graham Lindsey (R- South Carolina) that he wants - as part of ongoing congressional investigation - to look into allegations about Trump's business links with Russian Federation, the White House press secretary Sean Spicer revealed that President Trump has hired and directed a Washington law firm to send a certified letter to Senator Graham, affirming that Trump has no business connections with Russian Federation.

When it came to the January 6 report that accused Russian Federation of "influence campaign" during the U.S. presidential election, some "two dozen or so" handpicked analysts from three agencies - the CIA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the NSA - compiled the information, Clapper told the subcommittee, headed by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island).

"This is a guy who was very outspoken in his criticism of President Obama's policies", Spicer said of Flynn during the White House press briefing on Monday, going on to question why the Obama administration allowed Flynn to travel to Russian Federation and did not revoke his security clearance.

The tweetstorm comes after former Attorney General Sally Q. Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. testified about former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's role with Russian Federation. Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, told CNN.

Adrienne Watson, a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee, said "Trump's attempt to hide his Russian Federation connections is misleading and pathetic".

"The FBI - according to Clapper, I think they're actually looking at that, so maybe that's something we need to steer clear of", Graham continued.

The companies must notify the commission by 25 May 2017 whether they accept the conditions of approval contained in the order. Three companies to date have acquired lease rights to build projects off the coast, including Vineyard Wind.

House Intelligence Committee co-chairman Adam Schiff Tuesday slammed the firing of FBI Director James Comey as "a brazen interference with a criminal investigation" but stopped short of calling it a cover-up by the Trump administration. It is "old news" that Yates met with White House Counsel Don McGahn on January 26 to discuss Flynn's problem. But do I want to know about business ties?

"At this point, I have not asked and I'm not fully aware of this", Spicer said.

The report concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered up a campaign "to undermine public faith in the USA democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency", and that he and his government "developed a clear preference for" Trump.

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

During the hearing, and previous hearings related to the Trump-Russia investigation, Republicans have often focused on leaks rather than the underlying subject, in an apparent attempt to reinforce the White House narrative that the media can not be trusted.
