Has A President Ever Pardoned Himself? Trump Has Reportedly Asked About It

"Their sick agenda over National Security", Trump tweeted.

The spokesman for US President Donald Trump's legal team has resigned within two months on the job, the media reported. That's not quite the all-time low for Trump in the Gallup tracking poll-he sunk to just 35 percent in late March when the GOP's first health care plan flopped before the House could even vote-but it's getting close and earlier this month the president had briefly risen back to 40 percent.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, as well as any potential contacts between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

The president has long criticised leaks of information about the investigation and has urged authorities to prosecute leakers.

While Trump and Manafort will be cooperating with the committee, the statement adds that the panel "reserve [s] the right" to issue subpoenas for each in the future.

President Trump, in a long tweetstorm on Saturday morning, slammed what he called "a new intelligence leak" against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, an apparent reference to a report that Sessions discussed campaign-related matters with Russia's ambassador to the USA during the presidential race.

Kislyak became a central player in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling of the 2016 election.

Jay Caruso, who writes for the conservative RedState.com, tweeted: "I am on the verge of publishing something that says it makes sense it was TRUMP people who leaked info on Sessions, not the DEEP STATE". She turned thousands of emails over to the government, but deleted thousands of others that she said were personal or unrelated to her work as the nation's top diplomat.

Trump on Saturday blasted one Post story on Friday evening that cited unnamed current and former US officials as saying Russia's ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak told his superiors that he discussed campaign-related matters with then-Senator Jeff Sessions, a key Trump ally who is now the US Attorney General.

"Be VERY careful Mr. Pres., "investigating the investigators" can be obstruction", Norm Eisen, an attorney who previously served as the White House ethics czar for the Obama administration, tweeted.

Trump tweeted on Saturday morning: "A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions.These illegal leaks, like Comey's, must stop!"

The intercepts were reportedly gained by USA intelligence agencies who monitor Russian officials' interactions communications in the United States and overseas.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores says Sessions stands by his previous assertion that he never had conversations with Russian officials about any type of interference with the election.
