It’s been a very busy week for the US.
On Monday, the White House released the results of its inquiry into President Donald Trump’s possible involvement in a cover-up of a Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
In January, the President said he knew the Russia investigation was an ‘excuse’ to keep his campaign out of the White Senate, and that the investigation was ‘nothing more than a witch hunt’ by the Democrats.
That same month, a Senate committee released a report alleging that Trump campaign officials communicated with Russian officials during the 2016 election to sway the outcome of the election.
The investigation found evidence of Russian interference with the 2016 US election, including efforts to interfere with the polls, steal emails, and help the Trump campaign win the presidency.
The President and his team have denied the allegations.
On Tuesday, a federal judge in the Southern District of New York ordered the Justice Department to produce documents, including a transcript of a call between President Trump and the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov.
The transcript shows that at least one of the conversations between Trump and Lavrov involved a request for help with the election and the use of a ‘bond’ to buy votes.
During the call, Trump expressed support for a proposal by former President Barack Obama to create a new ‘bail-in’ mechanism, which would allow people who are not US citizens to temporarily stay in the US if they had financial problems, a potential move to circumvent the election rules.
The transcript also shows that Trump said that he believed that there was ‘a lot of smoke’ that might be hiding under the ‘bombshell’ of allegations against former President Bill Clinton, a reference to allegations that Clinton used a private email server while he was in office.
During a briefing on Tuesday, the FBI and Justice Department said that they are preparing documents for the Senate panel to release, but that they would wait for the White Houses response to that committee’s request before deciding how to release them.
Meanwhile, the New York Attorney General announced that he was investigating a complaint against a Trump associate who was a campaign volunteer.
The complaint alleges that the associate, Felix Sater, who is now a partner at the Trump Organization, engaged in
