Trump asserts all agree he has 'complete power' to pardon

President Donald Trump has said he has "complete power" to issue pardons.

The Department of Justice says Sessions stands by his previous assertion he never had conversations with Russian officials about any type of interference with the election. He paid for them in full and later took out mortgages against them.

Congressional lawmakers say President Donald Trump's eldest son and his former campaign chairman won't testify publicly next week as part of the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.

His statement describes a December meeting with Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in which Kushner and Kislyak discussed establishing a secure line for the Trump transition team and Moscow to communicate about policy in Syria.

Shortly after his posts on Twitter, which started just after 6:30 a.m. and lasted almost two hours, Trump flew to Norfolk, Va., where he injected a dose of partisan politics into the ceremonial commissioning of a new naval warship.

Sessions, now the attorney general, at the time was a USA senator and foreign policy adviser to Trump.

On another matter, Kushner described receiving a "random email" during the presidential campaign from someone claiming to have Trump's tax returns - which the president hasn't released - and demanding ransom to keep the information secret.

More news: Senator Susan Collins says President Trump should stop talking about Russia probe

For perhaps the first time in his presidency, he isn't lying.

Donald Trump Jr. has needed several tries to tell the whole truth about last year's now-infamous Russian Federation meeting. But he and some of his top aides have hired private criminal-defense lawyers to deal with the investigation.

The president took to Twitter on Monday to repeat his criticism of the investigations, and reiterate his allegation against his former opponent, questioning in a tweet why investigators aren't looking into "Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russian Federation relations". Trump fired Comey in May. The public disclosures helped lead to Mueller taking over the investigation. Trump has been angered that Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation probe. During an interview with The New York Times this week, Trump lashed out at Sessions, saying he would not have chosen him for attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself.

"The Failing New York Times foiled US attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist, Al-Baghdadi". It came as Republicans in the Senate struggled to come together on a bill to overhaul President Barack Obama's health care law.

After the failure of the Republicans' second attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Trump said that GOP lawmakers should repeal the reform even if they have no alternative plan to replace it, but the White House insisted that Trump preferred to have both things accomplished at the same time.

Trump's tweet wasn't clear about why he was upset.
