"What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion", Trump said, "There's been absolutely no collusion, so we're very happy". "Yet Trump tried to influence or stop the FBI investigation on #Flynn". Trump tweeted from his personal account Saturday.
Just after noon, the president departed for his second fundraising event of the day at The Pierre Hotel, just blocks from his namesake Trump Tower.
The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, removed a top F.B.I. agent from his investigation into Russian election meddling after the Justice Department's inspector general began examining whether the agent had sent text messages that expressed anti-Trump political views, according to three people briefed on the matter.
During his testimony to Congress in June, Comey said Trump asked him in February to drop the FBI investigation into Flynn centering on his calls with Kislyak during the transition. Trump had previously advocated for Flynn, even urging then-FBI Director James Comey to be lenient with him, according to testimony Comey gave after Trump fired him. "I hope you can let this go". Court records say Flynn contacted the Russian ambassador on December 22 about the Trump administration's opposition to a United Nations resolution against Israeli settlements.

"Among federal law enforcement officials, there is great concern that exposure of the texts [Strzok and Page] exchanged may be used by the president and his defenders to attack the credibility of the Mueller probe, and the FBI more broadly", the Post wrote Saturday.
As acting attorney general at the end of the Obama administration, Yates and another Justice Department official went to the White House on January 26 to warn White House counsel Don McGahn that Flynn was potentially compromised and vulnerable to blackmail because of discrepancies between the public accounting of the Kislyak conversation and what actually occurred. But inside a large event space in Cipriani, where a large Christmas tree stood nearby, the president turned nostalgic about the 2016 election and recalled that few people expected him to notch the required 270 electoral votes to claim the White House. Some conservatives encouraged Mr. Trump to fire Mr. Mueller, saying the investigation was tainted.
Mueller was appointed special counsel overseeing the Russian Federation investigation days later. Strzok played a key role in the FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, the papers said.
