The Trump Russia Connection: 18 More Previously Undisclosed Contacts With Russian Officials

The White House had initially denied speaking with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential race, but they later revealed that there were four meetings between Kislyak and Trump before the president was elected.

According to a New York Times report released last night, the Trump team was aware that Flynn was under investigation for secretly working for the Turkish government, yet nonetheless brought him on board as national security adviser, a position wherein he'd be privy to the highest levels of classified information.

The questions that must be asked now are: Who were the other campaign officials also communicating via phone, text and email with the Russians prior to inauguration, and why were they looking to set up a way to communicate with Putin without anyone else knowing? These are "previously undisclosed interactions" between team Trump and Russian Federation.

In a written statement, Trump insisted anew there were no nefarious ties between his campaign and Russian Federation. Six of the contacts include phone calls between Russia's ambassador to the United States, Sergei Kislyak, and Trump's advisors, which included Flynn.

Pillar apologized after the game but did not give any indication as to what he actually said to Motte. "Don't let it define me". Pillar admitted after the game that his actions following Motte's quick pitch were "uncalled for".

Reuters said it was did not receive any comments about the claims from White House, Flynn's lawyer, or the Russian Foreign Ministry. But the disclosure could increase the pressure on Trump and his aides to provide the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Congress with a full account of interactions with Russian officials and others with links to the Kremlin during and immediately after the 2016 election.

These stories all came after The Washington Post published an audio recording of House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from June 15, 2016, one day after the intelligence community alleged Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee.

The report comes just a day after the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a Justice Department special counsel overseeing the investigation into any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Mueller will head the FBI investigation that began last July.

"Of course not", Pence said when asked whether anyone from the campaign was ever in touch with Russian Federation. Putin is the godfather to Medvedchuk's daughter.

No other member of the Trump campaign has been identified aside from Flynn, because American citizens are protected, or "masked", in surveillance operations.

"Despite no evidence whatsoever having been presented of Trump or anyone on his campaign colluding with Russian Federation to influence the election, the deep state and the Democratic establishment is intensifying its effort to portray Trump as illegitimate", Watson wrote.

After Vice President Mike Pence and others had denied in January that Trump campaign representatives had any contact with Russian officials, the White House later confirmed that Kislyak had met twice with then-Senator Jeff Sessions, who later became attorney general.

"They got so close during the campaign", an anonymous White House official told The Atlantic.
