On Wednesday, Robert Anderson — former FBI assistant director of National Security — testified before Congress about the findings of the Mueller report. Anderson denounced Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner for meeting with Kremlin agents.
He noted that Russia gained a foothold in the administration by having agents meet with people close to the President.
“That’s where it starts. You’re talking to people who are around the President or potential President of the United States,” Anderson said. “From that point on you have a voice inside you can filter information to.”
“I think Russia looked at this way in advance on how to potentially target incoming administrations,” he continued.
“And the current President’s administration … the people around him, were not savvy — at all, in my opinion — to counter-intelligence threats or national security issues.”
Former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy, who is a Republican, added that the administration was compromised when they met with Kremlin agents during the campaign.
“I would just add that even by taking the meeting, you’ve made yourself beholden to Putin,” McCarthy said.
Trump: I couldn’t have assaulted E. Jean Carroll because ‘she’s not my type’
On Monday, in an exclusive interview with The Hill in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump reiterated his denial of the rape allegation by advice columnist E Jean Carroll, suggesting that he couldn't have done it because he wouldn't have been sexually attracted to her.
"I'll say it with great respect," said Trump. "Number one, she's not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?"
Carroll has alleged that Trump forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s, saying that he "just went at it ... he pulled down my tights and it was a fight."

The show was canceled in 2015 when Josh Duggar was accused of child molestation. The show then spun off "Counting On," about sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar and their marriages and children.
‘Forget you Paul’: Internet mocks former House Speaker for claiming Trump stands for the ‘forgotten man’
On Monday, the Washington Post reported on an interview between former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
Ryan continued to insist that he supports President Donald Trump, saying that 'didn't have the best relationship' with him but that 'he's taking on political correctness; he's taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they're being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to.'" He also pointedly refused to say whether Trump was a good role model for American children.
