Trump denies chaos reigns in White House

Trump has since vowed to root out those leaking sensitive information, an issue that could come up at Thursday's press conference.

Trump mentioned the shift during a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Pence, Jan. 15: I talked to General Flynn about that conversation and actually it was initiated when on Christmas Day he had sent a text to the Russian ambassador to express not only Christmas wishes but sympathy for the loss of life in the airplane crash that took place.

The intel community's defenders, however, like former State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf, say the WSJ report should be taken with a grain of salt because it is "thinly sourced".

"These activities border on the treasonous", said Representative Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is investigating Russian interference in the election.

"If we could get along with Russia, that's a positive thing", he continued, claiming the press wanted him to get into a conflict over reports that a Russian surveillance ship has been loitering off the shore of New England, a Russian missile test and a recent encounter between a Russian plane and a USA ship. "I$3 t's an illegal process and the press should be ashamed of themselves".

Flynn resigned earlier this week after he was found to have misled Vice President Mike Pence about holding unauthorized discussions about sanctions with Russia's ambassador to the United States in December.

Trump: I don't know about it.

When pressed about his aides' communications, which were the subject of New York Times and CNN reports this week, Trump responded "nobody that I know".

However, he said he asked Mr Flynn to resign because "didn't tell our Vice President properly" and lied about remembering the content of the call. "They're very - not because they're good, because they hit me also when I do something wrong".

"Ask fundamental questions [in committee], have the White House give the answers and then decide where to go from there", he said. It turns out he did, a disclosure that the administration says cost Mr Flynn the president's trust.

FILE - Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., pictured on Capitol Hill, Jan. 11, 2017, says any probe of ties between President Donald Trump's inner circle and Russian Federation should delve into intelligence and Justice Department leaks to the news media about information uncovered so far. But at the same time, he said he would be unveiling a new executive action on national security next week.

Until these matters are clarified, Russian Federation will dog Mr Trump.

"If those sanctions were to be watered down, I would for sure support codifying them and making sure they don't get watered down, because I do believe Russian Federation is a global menace, and their interests are not aligned with our interests", he said. "The public gets it, you know". I want to do the right thing for the American people.

"To be honest, I inherited a mess". "They're a very powerful nuclear country, so are we".

"I don't mind bad stories, I can handle a bad story better than anybody, as long as it's true".

Trump also specifically attacked leaks to the press, and outlets who run information based on leaks.
