President Trump Forces a Reckoning Among Conservatives

President Trump Forces a Reckoning Among Conservatives

Sean Spicer confirms that the White House did contact other officials to corroborate their story, but maintains that the administration did nothing untoward.

At the root of the unhappiness was the president's continued denial that his campaign advisers engaged in contacts with Russian officials before the election - allegations the Federal Bureau of Investigation reportedly is exploring as part of a probe of Russian hacking during the 2016 election.

CNN notes that the White House isn't supposed to have direct communication with the FBI on pending investigations, especially if said investigation includes the White House and contacts close to the president.

Justice Department procedure memos issued in 2007 and 2009 say that the FBI should only discuss pending investigations with the White House when it's vital to the president's duties. Democrats criticized this request. "We asked them to tell the truth", Spicer said.

Priebus' discussions with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had begun after the New York Times published the story last month about Trump's campaign associates having repeated contacts with the Russian intelligence, a USA law enforcement official told CNN.

With that in mind, it might be a few weeks before we learn what other new markets the Mi MIX will be available in besides the UAE. The Xiaomi Mi MIX smartphone also features an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, electronic compass, and gyroscope.

Senior administration officials told reporters Friday that McCabe initiated the conversation with Priebus after a White House meeting, telling him there was nothing to the reports.

"We didn't try to knock the story down".

Not even a year after he canceled an appearance at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference amid Republican unease about his presence, Donald Trump, now president, was greeted Friday by loud cheers and a standing ovation.

DAN SCHNEIDER, Executive Director, American Conservative Union: We know who these people are. The plan, he said, was "deconstruction of the administrative state", which he and Trump apparently believes robs people of their independence and hurts economic growth.

Schlapp told NBC News that Trump managed to marry "conservative instincts" to a populist tone.

Hawks to acquire Ilyasova from 76ers
At 6-foot-10, Ilyasova can also share the frontcourt with Millsap by having the flexibility to play at both forward spots. This trade is the perplexing one, seeing how Ilyasova has performed during his tenure as a Philadelphia 76er.

Several members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees tell CNN that the congressional investigations are continuing into those alleged Russian contacts with the Trump campaign, despite Priebus' assertion that there is nothing to those reports.

The White House then changed the story to reflect what actually happened.

"There's a new political order that's being formed", Bannon said toward the end.

"Intelligence professionals are not there to serve as the president's PR firm", he said.

Fast forward to last week, and his approval has grown sizably, according to the newest Morning Consult/POLITICO survey.

Plane from Edinburgh crashes off runway in Amsterdam
Storm Doris has caused disruption across many airports today as winds of up to 100 miles-per-hour hit British and Dutch coasts. The airline said that 46 passengers were on board the stricken plane, with a further 10 crew members.

Oliver said the order, which caused protests and chaos at airports the weekend after its enactment, was "rolled out a little bit haphazardly" and she anxious that Trump could go too far on immigration policy.
