White House denies trying to silence evidence of Russia ties

The North Carolina Republican has signed on as a co-sponsor of a proposal by Congressmen Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, and Eric Swalwell, D-California, which seeks to establish an independent commission to probe controversies relating to the election.

At one point yesterday afternoon, in a Capitol Hill hallway, a reporter asked House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) if he's prepared to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation the Republican congressman compromised. They made a point of putting themselves at arm's length from the House investigation marked by partisanship and disputes.

"All this does is cast a very dark cloud over an investigation that, by all accounts - Republican or Democrat - has ground to a halt over on the House side", he concluded.

A representative for Rep. Mike Quigley, a Democrat from IL on the committee, echoed Swalwell, saying "neither of those claims are accurate".

Continuing his defense, Kingston said, "What I don't like is the left always runs and clutches, 'Oh I'm a woman, don't say anything bad about me.' Or, 'I belong to a certain race.' It seems like it's always that card that's played". "We're partners to see that this is completed and that we have a product at the end of the day that we can, in bipartisanship, support".

Five have been scheduled, and the remaining 15 are likely to be scheduled within the next 10 days. He also said that the committee would only interview Mr Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner when they knew the "scope of what is needed". House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., rejected demands that Nunes recuse himself.

Flynn's ties to Russian Federation have been scrutinized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"What I think should happen right now is that the Senate is going to lead this discussion, this investigation on the Russian meddling into the election", Dent said on CNN.

Spicer said the White House does not control the process by which the committee investigates the president's and his associates' ties to Russian Federation.

Comey was asked to respond to tweets Trump had sent to his followers accusing President Barack Obama of having him wiretapped. The spokesperson added, "The chairman is extremely concerned about the improper masking of names of USA citizens".
