Gorka called the idea that there is a "bunker mentality" or "crisis" about this week's Donald Jr. news in the White House "laughable", stating: "We are pushing the Make America Great Again agenda".

Former President Obama seized the compounds in December 2016, claiming they were used for spying, as part of a series of measures punishing Russian Federation for allegedly meddling in the US presidential election.

"As you know, the Russian diplomatic compounds were seized based on the harassment, sometimes violent, of USA personnel in Russia", the Democrats wrote in their letter.

While Lavrov did not specify what Russia's response would be, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov noted that if Washington continues to drag its feet on the issue, there will be a "tough response".

When asked specifically by Tapper about those two compounds, Gorka said the United States needs to find ways to work with Russian Federation. We may not share the same type of statesman view of the world.

Turning to the Islamic State's defeat in Mosul by US and coalition forces, Gorka attributed it to Trump's leadership. "Let's see if it's possible and not prejudge". Why does President Trump continue to second guess the assertions being made by his own intelligence chiefs? "At that point, you have to move on". "That is horrific. If we can see acts of good faith come out of the Kremlin with regards to things such as a ceasefire, then perhaps there is a chance for what Rex Tillerson wants to see happen, which is an improvement for relations between our two capitols", he continued.

TAPPER: Those aren't Obama holdovers, that's President Trump's intelligence officials, yet President Trump a few days ago said quote, "Nobody really knows for sure who interfered in the election".

Echoing comments from Trump himself, Gorka contended that moving on would strengthen U.S. security.
