Their statement follows Trump's comments in a Fox News Channel interview in which he alleges potential legal problems involving a Cohen relative and takes digs at Cohen's honesty and own legal woes.

Also this weekend, the Washington Post reported that Trump "has gone to extraordinary lengths to hide details of his conversations" with Putin from members of his own administration-"including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials".

But Trump pointed out that having discussions with world leaders is something that is normal and should not be scrutinized.

And there is reportedly no record of his one-on-one, two-hour discussion with Mr Putin in Helsinki a year ago.

"This is about the most serious counterintelligence people we have in the USA government saying, 'Oh, my God, the president's words and actions lead us to conclude that somehow he has become a witting, unwitting, or half-witting pawn, certainly in some regards, to Vladimir Putin, '" Bernstein explained during his appearance on Reliable Sources.

Bafana Bafana legend Phil Masinga has died
The legend will definitely be fondly remembered for his vital contribution during the 1998 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign. Leeds United's Phil Masinga tries a mid air kick at Coventry goal but keeper Steve Ogrizovic punches it away.

"I would, I don't care", the president told Pirro.

"It's so ridiculous. These people make it up", Mr. Trump said, providing no evidence.

"If you compare objectively President Trump's policies in Russian Federation... to President Obama's policies in Russian Federation".

Strobe Talbott, who served as deputy secretary of state to President Bill Clinton, called Trump's secrecy surrounding the meetings "unusual" and "outrageous", according to the Post.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the story was so outrageously inaccurate it didn't even warrant a response. The interpreter revealed only that Mr. Trump replied "I believe you" when Putin denied meddling in the USA elections, according to the Post.

GOP Senator Says 'Wall Won't Get Built' If Trump Declares National Emergency
House Democrats as well as a smattering of Republicans voted this week in favor of bills to reopen portions of the government. Almost half of all Americans (47 per cent) say there is a serious problem at the border but decline to call it a crisis.

On Friday, the New York Times published a story about an FBI probe into Trump's behavior following his firing of former FBI Director James Comey. They also sought to determine whether Trump was deliberately working for Russian Federation or had unintentionally been influenced by Moscow.

He said that he fired Comey because he was "a awful liar, and he did a bad job as the FBI director" and called the former director's handling of the Clinton email probe "one of the biggest screw-ups that anybody's ever seen as an investigation". "And if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing".

Trump tweeted early Saturday that the report showed that the FBI leadership "opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof" after he had fired Comey.

McCarthy said on Fox & Friends that he's surprised people are "whipped up" about a New York Times report of a secret FBI investigation into whether Trump was working on behalf of Russian Federation shortly after he fired former director James Comey.

Comey appeared to respond to Trump's tweet, writing on Twitter: "I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made".

On Sunday, Cruz told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the media's focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's campaign to disrupt the 2016 US presidential election is just another example of the disconnect between most of the nation and its capital. Trump repeated to Pirro his frequent criticism that the investigation is a "hoax".
