Republican lawmakers on Sunday sought to temper the impact of the latest bombshell reports involving President Trump and Russia, while their Democratic colleagues renewed calls to protect special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation.
The responses came after both The New York Times and The Washington Post reported new details over the weekend involving allegations of Trump’s close ties with Moscow, sparking renewed concerns about the fate of Mueller’s probe.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, on NBC criticized Washington, D.C.’s, focus on the Mueller investigation as out of touch with the rest of the country.
And Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a close ally of the president, raised doubts about some of the reporting’s accuracy.
The New York Times reported Fridaythat the FBI was so concerned about Trump’s firing of former bureau chief James Comey that it opened an inquiry into whether the president was working on behalf of Russian interests.

It is hard to understand how else some of the idiosyncratic and bizarrely Russpohillic ideas he routinely spouts have found their way into Trump’s brain….
The Times report tells us that collusion is only part of the story. The relationship between Trump and Putin did not merely rest on their mutual interest in the Trump campaign defeating Clinton, but indicates some deeper connection. From the very beginning of this story, pundits have underestimated the full extent of Trump’s ties to Russia and how much deeper the story might yet go.
