Republican setors unnerved by Trump-Russia relationship

Washington, Feb 16: US Sete Republicans are expressing growing concerns about the relationship between President Dold Trump’s administration and Russia, the media reported. “Everybody is unnerved by what they read, but (they’re) not going to make decisions based on headlines,” said South Caroli Setor Lindsey Graham. Sete Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker acknowledged that calls for a wide-ranging investigation have “gained momentum over the last 48 hours”, The Hill magazine reported. The administration’s relationship with Russia drew renewed attention on Monday after the resigtion of Michael Flynn as President Trump’s tiol Security Adviser. Flynn left his post after reports that he held multiple phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to the US about sanctions on Moscow before Trump took office. While the White House said Flynn was ousted because of a lack of trust — he misled Vice President Pence and others about those discussions — the conversations themselves raised new questions about ties between Team Trump and Moscow, worrying Republicans in the Sete.
