Donald Trump denies revealing highly classified information to Russian Federation

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says his boss's firing of FBI Director James Comey didn't create concerns about how much independence President Donald Trump will give him as America's top diplomat.

"With those words, Secretary Tillerson sent a message to oppressed people everywhere, 'Don't look to the United States for hope, ' " McCain wrote in an op-ed in the New York Times last week.

"He's clearly trying to cause drama between the secretary of state and the president", Huntsman said. "You can not start with a clean state", Tillerson said. We don't dismiss any of them.

Discussing Russia and the election has become something of a minefield for Trump's senior aides.

One of those national security objectives, Tillerson said, is to try to establish a better relationship with Russian Federation despite that nation's interference in last year's USA presidential election.

Trump himself has acknowledged the US intelligence finding that interference occurred, but says its effect can not be known.

Doctors warn sushi-eaters of parasite in raw fish
Cases of anisakiasis are more rare in Western countries due to the fact that most dietary fish is cooked, which kills the worms . Raw fish can carry parasitic worms , which are able to invade the stomach wall or intestines of humans.

"So, the President, I think, has committed to at least make an effort in that regard and he has certainly asked me to make an important effort as well", Tillerson said, noting that relationship with Russian Federation comes up in his conversation with leaders of Europe as well.

Confusion at the upper levels of U.S. government was on display Monday as the White House scrambled to respond to a report that President Donald Trump disclosed highly classified information to Russian officials last week.

Tillerson said in a statement that Trump and Lavrov discussed a broad range of subjects.

The former ExxonMobil CEO, who was decorated in 2013 by Russian President Vladimir Putin, had said previously that the relationship between the two nuclear powers had hit its lowest point since the Soviet collapse in 1991. "I think it's been well documented, it's pretty well understood the nature of that interference here and elsewhere", he said.

"I think it's largely viewed that it is not healthy for the world".

Trump's presidency has been dogged by the Russian-meddling allegations and investigations by the FBI and congressional committees about contacts between his associates and Russian officials.
