While Mr. Trump can point to the court documents and say they show no evidence of collusion with Russian Federation, the special counsel's filings so far paint a damning portrait of Mr. Trump's associates.
As Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Kislyak attended the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where Trump was nominated as the party's presidential candidate.
The court documents provide the clearest picture yet of coordination between Flynn and other Trump advisers in contacting Russian officials to influence global policy, and raise questions about who higher up the chain of command in Trump's orbit -possibly even including the president himself- is in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's sights after he agreed to a plea deal with the retired general. In court documents filed Friday, Flynn said he had conversations about those calls with officials of Trump's transition team including one senior member.
The tweet immediately caught the attention of critics, who questioned whether Trump knew Flynn had lied to the FBI when the President asked then-FBI Director James Comey to let the investigation into Flynn go. He is a good guy. Investigators have learned that Mr. Flynn and Mr. Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, took the lead in those efforts. It seems he's feeling smug about the turn of events at the White House. He helped lead the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

Mr. Strzok's reassignment shows that Mr. Mueller moved swiftly in the face of what could be perceived as bias by one of his agents amid a politically charged inquiry into Mr. Trump's campaign and administration. If today's tweet is true, he then lied to Comey to get him to drop an investigation, knowing full well Flynn had lied to the FBI.
It is now moving closer to the Oval Office itself as Flynn has agreed to cooperate with special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
"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.
Trump told NBC News in May that "I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it" and "I said to myself - I said, you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story".
