"There's clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence", claimed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

The White House spent Monday insisting that everything was calm after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of President Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his top aide, Rick Gates, plus the newly announced guilty plea of a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos. She affirmed President Donald Trump's stance that there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russian Federation.

"The real collusion scandal, as we've said several times before, has everything to do with the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS and Russian Federation".

Sanders' news conference Tuesday is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT. And he was part of a list that was read out in the Washington Post. Sanders also commented on his case.

Sanders was then asked by a reporter: "So his activities were entirely of his invention, no one asked him to do any of these things - is that what you're telling the American public?"

New Zealand were 63 for two chasing 270 in the 15th over - but 16 runs, eight wickets and 51 balls later, the match was complete. They notched up a partnership of 230 for the second wicket and effectively batted New Zealand out of the series.

Those emails revealed that Mr. Papadopoulos lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his attempts to arrange meetings between Russian agents, and even Russian President Vladimir Putin, and top officials in the Trump campaign.

Mrs. Sanders said that the Trump campaign has always fully cooperated with the investigation, including turning over all of Mr. Papadopoulos's emails.

MS. SANDERS: It was extremely limited; it was a volunteer position. They expressed concern in particular about Gates because he has a young family, may be more stretched financially than Manafort, and continued to be involved in Trump's political operation and had access to the White House, including attending West Wing meetings after Trump was sworn in.

"We do think it will wrap up soon".
