"I think the president should step aside from any comments, any tweets on the investigation and focus on the agenda that he ran on", Duffy said on CNN.
Trump's critics, he said, "are looking to malign President Trump, diminish his historic win and to undermine his presidency by claiming he didn't win - that it was given to him by the Russians".
The Trump-Russia investigations, both in relevant congressional committees and within the FBI, have picked up steam over the last few weeks, following Trump's decision to abruptly fire FBI Director James Comey.
One of President Donald Trump's personal attorneys, Michael Cohen, has received an "invitation to provide information and testimony" that pertains to the Russian Federation investigation to House and Senate intelligence committees, Cohen has confirmed. No date for testimony in front of the intelligence committee has been set.
The conversation, which took place before Trump's inauguration, centered around lifting then-President Barack Obama's sanctions against Russian Federation.
Shortly before leaving office, former President Barack Obama imposed additional sanctions on Russian Federation after receiving information from the intelligence community suggesting the country tried to sabotage Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign. The aide said any such subpoenas would have been issued by Representative Devin Nunes of California, the committee's chairman, who has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

Tuesday, blasting the Justice Department for ditching the "original Travel Ban". He posted four tweets between 6:25 a.m. and 6:44 a.m.
"Russian officials must be laughing at the US & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News", Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter.
But later in the day, the White House showed it was beginning to offload the Russian Federation crisis to Trump's longtime personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz. Those subpoenas reportedly went to Obama's national security adviser, Susan Rice, his United Nations ambassador, Samantha Power, and his Central Intelligence Agency director, John Brennan. Of the seven subpoenas issued, four were related to the Russian probe and three were related to "unmasking" done by Obama officials.
In April, it emerged that Rice tried to learn the identities of Trump officials whose names were incidentally collected during routine intelligence-gathering operations.

This action would have been taken without the Minority's agreement.
The associate, who wasn't authorized to discuss details of the testimony spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity, declined to discuss the content of Comey's planned testimony, other than to say that Robert Mueller III, who was appointed earlier this month by the Department of Justice to lead the government's inquiry, is allowing Comey to make certain statements.
