Trump Stuns Washington, Invites Russia's Vladimir Putin to White House

Trump Stuns Washington, Invites Russia's Vladimir Putin to White House

Trump and Coats appeared to be at odds in the aftermath of the President's meeting with Putin at the beginning of the week.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said U.S. President Donald Trump "really sold the American people out" during the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this week. "In the Old Days they would call it Diplomacy.

We saw that most clearly in this recent meeting with Putin".

Trump later made clear he supported the US intelligence community's findings about Russian meddling.

Speaking at OzyFest - a festival of talks and music - in Central Park, New York on Saturday, Clinton also said Russian agents were targeting the November midterm elections in a renewed attempt to disrupt United States democracy, and could this time attack election infrastructure such as "the servers you send results to" and "the operations of voting machines". The lack of any official notes from this meeting is particularly troubling to Clinton, as she sees Putin discussing the details on an worldwide stage with no verification or denial from the White House.

Dan Coats on July 21 issued a statement after USA media reported Trump was angry with an interview that Coats gave at the Aspen Institute security forum in Colorado on July 19, when he laughed and at times appeared to mock the president.

Mystery Egyptian Sarcophagus Is Finally Opened
If you believe in curses, it's always going to be a bit of a risk to open an ancient sarcophagus and disturb the spirits within. Archaeologists believe it is 2,000 years old, dating back to the early Ptolemaic period, which began around 323 B.C.

Following the two leaders' summit in Helsinki, Finland, the White House announced it had invited Putin to visit for a second meeting in the fall, which has brought on additional criticism.

"Russia should suffer consequences for its aggressive and destabilizing behavior as well as its continuing illegal occupation of Ukraine", Mattis said in a letter to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain.

Even New Hampshire's new GOP chairman, Wayne McDonald, took a swipe at Horn for attacking Trump on Russian Federation.

Clinton also warned that the U.S. is still "very vulnerable" to potential future election interference from Russian Federation.

The White House did ultimately object to one proposal from Putin to hand over two Americans, including former U.S. Ambassador to Moscow Mike McFaul, for questioning. "And it makes me think that either Trump doesn't understand what Russian Federation has done, not only to our elections, but to cyberattacks against all parts of our infrastructure". We must put aside the GOP label, as hard as that may be, and demonstrate the leadership our country needs by calling on the president to step down. The next day Trump changed his statement, saying he did believe USA intelligence agency information that suggested Russian Federation meddled in the election.

This goes against standard protocol and is potentially risky if the president made secret agreements with the Russian leader, according to a former national security official.
