Ryan and the spy service leaders implored the president not to undermine efforts to reauthorize the surveillance program known as Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, which was up for a vote in the House later in the day. Acosta has covered the Obama and Trump White Houses for CNN since 2013. Mark Warner of Virginia, the Senate intelligence committee's top Democrat, tweeted. He suggested that a vote on the bill should be delayed, but it went forward. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas. But the task has taken on heightened urgency.

'Doesn't it feel like a decade?'

A White House official said staffers had consulted with Trump after his initial tweets opposing the administration's stance.

Manafort's communications with some Russians tied to the Kremlin have been leaked to the press.

The meeting -televised to ward off continuing speculation surrounding Trump's mental faculties - ultimately revealed Trump's limited understanding of terms relevant to the debate. Others appear likely to depart in the coming weeks.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top-ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said Trump's tweets were "inaccurate, conflicting and confusing".

Trump, 71, will be examined at the Walter Reed military hospital in a Washington suburb Friday and the results are set to be made public.

McMaster, an active duty three-star Army general, served as a commandeering influence in the West Wing.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Departing aides would join Dina Powell, the deputy national security adviser who announced her departure last year.

The reauthorization is potentially a politically fraught issue on Capitol Hill, and the House is expected to vote on the bill later Thursday. "He was one of the senior officials handling the FISA Section 702 issue". But if these comments are accurate, Wolf, I think it just is going to cause more damage, more grave damage to this presidency because it cuts to the very core of who he is.

Americans cannot be the subject of 702 surveillance, but can be picked up in the surveillance of foreign targets.

Lawmakers had begun the day readying for two votes related to the program that intelligence officials call the "holy grail" because it provides insight into the thinking and actions of U.S. adversaries.

Grueling hours, cramped offices and political warfare take sizable tolls on aides' personal and family lives.

The reversals continued Thursday when Trump contradicted the official White House position regarding the reauthorization of an element of the FISA law that entitles intelligence agencies to collect the communications of foreigners abroad without a warrant.

The US leader voiced opposition to rules that allow agencies to monitor foreign terror or spy suspects, as long as they gather a court order. Durbin said people who would be allowed to stay in the U.S. included those who had fled here after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti. And it's just a terrible thing to have come out of your mouth as a White House correspondent, or as a journalist. Both have pleaded not guilty. Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program last year but has given Congress until March 5 to find a way to keep it alive.

Another factor giving potential hires pause is the ongoing Russia investigation, which has led to four indictments and could soon include an interview with Trump.

Despite Trump's complaints, his administration is sticking by the law as its stands. It would extend for six years the program, which includes massive monitoring of international communications.

"His woes began with unlawful foreign surveillance and unconstitutional domestic surveillance of him before he was the president of the United States". Democrats say there is no evidence that happened. Mike Rubino, a Trump campaign aide who joined Lewandowski's lobbying firm, is considered a potential addition to help share some of DeStefano's burden, a person familiar with the deliberations said. The closest example is Kellyanne Conway, who became close to Trump on the campaign trail but has not been a longtime confidante.
