Trump again slams Cohen, Democrats: 'I am an innocent man'

The White House is also smarting from explosive testimony on Capitol Hill by Trump's former lawyer and fixer on Wednesday that branded him a criminal and a racist.

Past administrations, both Democratic and Republican, have said a president's ability to conduct foreign affairs requires an ability to shield both internal discussions and worldwide negotiations from the reach of Capitol Hill.

USA president Donald Trump is riding out his third year in power encircled by investigations coming at him from multiple flanks.

"We're waiting for a report by people who weren't elected", Trump said of the Mueller report, which is widely expected to be handed over to Attorney General William Barr in the coming days. Needless to say, nor can the fact that Trump's top campaign officials eagerly tried to conspire in that effort (which Trump subsequently tried to hide from the American people).

The Democrats believe that these charges against Trump deserve to be investigated as the Republican-controlled house prematurely shut down the investigation that was looking at collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russian Federation. But he said, "The claim that there is no evidence is factually wrong". "Robert Mueller never received a vote and neither did the person who appointed him", Trump continued, as he attempted to portray Mueller's team as a group of the "angriest Democrats".

The war between the two began in the 1980s, when Nadler represented the affluent Upper West Side of Manhattan in the state legislature and opposed a huge development by Trump that would transform the historic district.

One person the USA president didn't mention in his two-hour CPAC speech was his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who testified before several congressional committees this week where he called Trump a "con man" and "racist".

In January, when he became chairman of the powerful Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives, he put the billionaire president back in his sights.

Nicknaming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as "Little Shifty Schiff", Trump continued: "These people are sick".

But the Russian Federation probe and those leading it drew the biggest ire and even profanity from the president, as investigations ramp up in Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller continues his probe into potential collusion between Trump associates and Moscow. On Friday, Cummings demanded that the White House turn over documents by Monday related to security clearances after the New York Times reported that the president ordered officials to grant his son-in-law Jared Kushner's clearance over the objections of security officials.

"I said, 'Melania, I'm doing something today, I'm doing it because it really has to be done. he's a bad, bad guy", Trump said, arguing that he thought Democrats would welcome the move given their anger at Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May 2017 to take over the Russian Federation investigation after Trump fired Comey, whose agency had led the probe initially. "The other thing you have to find is, listen to what Nadler said".

The broad investigation could be setting the stage for an impeachment effort, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review Mueller's upcoming report before trying any drastic action.

Mr Nadler said his committee will seek to review the Mueller report but stressed the investigation "goes far beyond collusion".

What about obstruction of justice? Nadler has helped lead the charge to pressure the Justice Department to release the full report to the public.
