Trump Offers New Boast of Successful Meeting with Putin

Trump Offers New Boast of Successful Meeting with Putin

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tennessee Republican Bob Corker, told reporters he expects Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to testify on Russian Federation as early as next week.

Beyond reaffirming support for U.S. intelligence agencies, Flake said the resolution would call for "some kind of hearing or briefing by those involved" in the private Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki, "to try to find out what happened in that private meeting".

Lindsey Graham to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have sought to remind the president that Russia is no friend of the US and criticized the president's suggestion that he sided with Putin over the USA intelligence community on the question of whether Russians meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump said Tuesday he misspoke a day earlier when he didn't back up findings by the U.S. intelligence community that Russian Federation had meddled in the 2016 United States presidential election.

Speaking alongside Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Trump said: "He just said it's not Russian Federation".

"I think there's a lot we can do together", the Senate's No. 2 Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, responded. I don't see any reason why it would be'. "I don't see any reason why it would be", he replied. So, you can put that in. "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", Trump said.

And he again floated the idea that "other people" could be involved. Bombarded with questions, the presidents laid out where US-Russia relations were heading at the press conference.

It was the first vote testing how Congress will react to Trump's remarks.

The way he takes the ball from the feet of his opponents, without them appearing to notice, is incredible. It has been revealed that N'Golo Kante was suffering with a stomach bug during the World Cup final.

Last week, Trump met with fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, pushing them to increase their spending on defence.

"As the president taxes Americans with tariffs, he pushes away our allies and further strengthens Putin". We have legislation to do that. Still, neither were as harsh as their co-host Huntsman was both in the above segment on Tuesday and in her Monday tweet.

At the Helsinki summit, Trump appeared to unquestioningly accept the Russian President's "strong and powerful" denials of meddling in the election.

Browder confirmed reports by TASS and other Russian news agencies that Russian prosecutors want to interview US special agents Todd Hyman, Alexander Schwarzman, and Svetlana Angert, all of whom Browder said were involved in investigating a client of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya for alleged money laundering.

However, Trump stopped short of condemning Russian Federation and noted that other actors could have been responsible in meddling with the election.

On Capitol Hill, House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, responded to Trump's rosy assessment.

Standing next to a former KGB agent who now runs Russian Federation, the white supremacist strongman who runs the United States on Monday signaled a change in the global order.

The NATO summit was widely seen as a testy gathering that badly strained trans-Atlantic ties.

"I am not being alarmist, I am simply stating the facts", Obama said.
