Key figure in US, Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak goes home

By the eleventh paragraph, the Post reported, "Russian and other foreign diplomats in Washington and elsewhere" are known "to report false or misleading information to bolster their standing with their superiors or to confuse US intelligence agencies".

On May 18, Russia's State Duma (lower house of parliament) International Affairs Committee endorsed Deputy Foreign Minister Anatoly Antonov as Ambassador to the USA, a source familiar with the committee's closed session told TASS.

The Russian news agency TASS also reported that on May 18, the International Affairs Committee in the lower house of the Russian parliament endorsed Antonov as the next Ambassador to the US.

It put Trump's son and son-in-law at the center of a burgeoning scandal involving multiple United States investigations into whether Trump associates colluded with Moscow in its efforts to tilt the 2016 election in the Republican's favor.

A Senate Judiciary Committee letter demanding all communication between Donald Trump, Jr., various Trump presidential campaigners and Russian officials now includes Green Party candidate Jill Stein, according to a report by The Hill.

Grassley apparently referred to a report that Kislyak had spoken to then-Alabama Senator Sessions on Trump campaign issues, according to Kislayk's accounts of the conversations to Russian officials which were intercepted by US spy agencies.

As Attorney General, Sessions recused himself in March from matters connected to an investigation by the FBI following his admission he had talked to the Russian envoy. Flynn was forced out as national security adviser for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about phone calls he had with Kislyak during the transition in which they discussed lifting sanctions against Russian Federation.

In yet another tweet, Trump took aim at one of his favourite targets, The New York Times, accusing the paper of foiling a USA attempt to kill the leader of the Daesh terror organisation, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.

Sessions originally failed to disclose a meeting with Kislyak, and then said that their conversations had nothing to do with the Trump campaign.

Kushner also had phone calls with Kislyak between April and November 2016, Reuters reported.

Moscow has denied any interference, and Trump has said his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation.
