A Republican congressman who's emerged as Russia's top defender on Capitol Hill was to meet with President Donald Trump at the White House Tuesday.

Ahead of the meeting, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California complained that a "brouhaha over nothing" is preventing the U.S. from establishing good relations "with this very big country and very powerful country."

Federal law enforcement authorities and bipartisan congressional investigators are looking into Russian meddling in the U.S. election and potential ties between Trump's campaign and Russia.

But Rohrabacher said: "What's happening is you've got the fake news avalanche trying to create the impression that something sinister is happening with Russia, and that is preventing us from negotiating and getting down into a real relationship where we can actually do some good by working together with Russia."
