Since Trump launched his presidential campaign, three of his aides have stepped down over their ties to Russia. The resignation of national security advisor Michael Flynn has prompted calls for an independent investigation.
Former US national security adviser Michael Flynn is cooperating with investigators and has admitted to lying to the FBI. Prosecutors said a "very senior member" of Trump's transition team directed him to contact Russia.
The US president has remained confident that testimony from his former national security adviser did not implicate him. But his new timeline on Michael Flynn raises further questions.
Senior US lawmakers have warned President Trump after he fired off a series of controversial tweets about the FBI's Russia probe. In his latest tweetstorm, Trump again denied he had tried to obstruct the investigation.
Lawyers for disgraced ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have said that they will no longer communicate with the White House. The move signals that Flynn may be cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller.
