As of Wednesday, the transcript did not include Mason's first question to Putin. "Why do we have them in here?" The administration said it "will continue to provide the support necessary to the owners of elections systems - State and local governments - to secure their elections". Trump threatened tariffs on $500 billion in Chinese imports in the same week that longtime ally Sen.

Yet CNN, like other United States media, has received a shot in the arm by the Trump administration.

Sanders defended the administration's approach to the press.

Trump slammed the testimony as "a disgrace to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it was a disgrace to this country and you would say that was a total witch hunt". Just because the White House is uncomfortable with a question regarding the news of the day doesn't mean the question isn't relevant and shouldn't be asked. "That's because Trump is too chicken to hold traditional news conferences and these exercises in photo op-ery often are White House correspondents' only chance to ask questions of the president of the United States".

But throughout his 18 months in office, he has privately discussed with aides retaliating against individual journalists, officials said. A call to Marine Corps Squadron One, which oversees the Marine One fleet and works with the White House on ferrying the president, went unanswered; there was no voicemail for a reporter to leave a message.

Fox News President Jay Wallace released a statement saying, "We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press".

Blackmail is also the easiest explanation for Trump's stumbling effort to invite Putin to the White House this fall without consulting his key national security and foreign policy advisers.

Behind closed doors, Trump often has vented about these types of encounters. "This is outrageous", said Blitzer, a former White House correspondent. Trump has denied there was such an encounter.

Scaramucci served as President Trump's communications director for just 11 days.

The SCMM posted photographs from inside the town, where homes have been left badly damaged since wars with Israel decades ago. Assad's troops and allied militias have made quick progress in the month-long offensive with the help of Russian air power.
