Paul Manafort, the former Donald Trump campaign chairman, and a close business associate, Rick Gates, are expected to surrender to federal authorities on Monday in connection with the investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election, according to multiple reports.
Two of the nation’s top intelligence officials told Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team and Senate investigators in separate meetings last week that President Donald Trump suggested they say publicly that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, CNN reported early Thursday.
The country watched as former-FBI Director James B. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his interactions with President Trump and whether or not the president attempted to impede or end the investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 election.
In his testimony, Comey called Trump a liar and said he started writing detailed memos about his interactions with the president because he did not believe Mr. Trump would be honest.
