Dems Want Interpreter From Trump-Putin Meeting To Testify Before Congress

President Trump is promising "more positive things" will be coming out of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin and declared it a "success", despite the hail of criticism he faced from Republicans and Democrats alike afterward. That came just days after National Intelligence Director Dan Coats sounded an alarm, comparing the cyberthreat today to the way USA officials said before 9/11 that intelligence channels were "blinking red" with warning signs that a terror attack was imminent.

"We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match", Trump said. But then he veered off the script that was written for him and suggested that others may have interfered in the election. "We know they interfered with our elections, and we have passed sanctions on Russian Federation to hold them accountable". A lot of people out there.

Top national security officials - including Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton - huddled in the White House Situation Room on Tuesday to develop a response to the fallout.

The US President had also mentioned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was "a disaster for our country", while also saying that it had negatively impacted US-Russia relations.

Media captionTrump says he "misspoke" at Putin summit, but is it too late? "This, apparently, intelligence services", commented trump.

"That's what I wish he would have said initially, and I'm glad he said it now", said Sen.

Trump received criticism from both sides of the aisle over remarks he made in his post-summit news conference on Monday.

Alisson is expected to join up with his new team-mates, including Brazilian colleague Roberto Firmino, upon their return. The 25 year old kept 22 clean sheets in 49 matches in all competitions last season, conceding 47 goals .

Scott stopped short of criticizing Trump by name, mindful of the president's high standing among Republicans in Florida.

But he again repeated his claim that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation and suggested that others may have interfered in the election. Trump never admits he was wrong, so his attempt at a do-over yesterday - saying he meant to say he didn't see a reason why Russian Federation "wouldn't" have interfered in the election, instead of "would" - is an indication that even he realizes he finally hit the wall.

The latter comment contrasted sharply with the assessment of various USA intelligence agencies about what happened in the election that saw Trump become president, and sparked an uproar in the officials and pundits blasted Trump for siding with Putin over American authorities.

Russia's RIA news agency, citing Moscow's envoy to Pyongyang, reported on Wednesday that a summit between the leaders of Russian Federation and North Korea is "on the agenda" and that it would be "logical" to raise the idea of lifting sanctions.

The Justice Department has not commented on Trump's recent remarks.

Trump had said he and Putin discussed reducing nuclear weapons worldwide. "They would rather go to war than see this", he wrote. Bringing up "no collusion" and saying there "could be other people also" responsible for election interference in addition to Russian Federation is viewed as another mistake, the official said.

Flake said he has spoken with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about the resolution but stopped short of saying that McConnell was in support of the move.
