DNI Coats Backs US Assessment of Russian Election Meddling

DNI Coats Backs US Assessment of Russian Election Meddling

In a flurry of tweets and statements, several GOP lawmakers blasted Trump for creating a false equivalency between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US intelligence agencies when he cast doubt on USA findings that Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election.

Corker said he was "disappointed and saddened" that Trump would equate the statements of the intelligence community with the Russian President's and had sharp words for Trump's approach in general.

After holding one-on-one talks for two hours and 10 minutes, Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump addressed a press conference in Helsinki.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday scoffed at a suggestion that Moscow had some compromising dossier on Donald Trump, following talks with the USA leader.

Trump's critics at home have repeatedly accused the USA president of cosying up to Putin, suggesting the Russian leader may have some compromising material on him.

Trump responded not by discussing Russian Federation but by claiming to hold "both countries responsible", before proceeding to double down on his accusations against the United States.

A Reuters journalist asked Trump about a post on his Twitter account earlier in the day in which he blamed the breakdown in U.S.

If anything, Trump's obsequiousness toward Putin suggests a kind of envy at the Russian leader's ability to exercise violent state power unchecked.

Abby Huntsman, a Fox News reporter and daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, excoriated Trump in a tweet, saying "no negotiation is worth throwing your own people and country under the bus".

There were mixed reactions on Fox News Channel, whose commentators usually represent Trump's biggest supporters.

Gareth Southgate replaced Dele Alli, Jesse Lingard and Jordan Henderson with Fabian Delph , Ruben Loftus Cheek and Eric Dier. We have high motivation to perform and finish with a medal at a World Cup, which only one English team have ever done.

The 46 percent of Americans who now consider the Trump administration's relationship with Russian Federation at least a somewhat serious problem is virtually identical to the 47 percent who said the same when HuffPost first asked the question in March 2017.

Instead, at a press conference after his highly anticipated summit with Putin, Trump took a number of shots at the law enforcement officials investigating his campaign and even at his own intelligence agencies, which have concluded that Russian Federation was behind the effort. Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this unsafe behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump. He called the appointment of a special counsel on Russian interference and the involvement of USA persons in that effort, Robert Mueller III, a "disgrace" to the country and an impediment to his own efforts to improve ties with Russia. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., tweeted, "This is shameful." Sen. He added: "I don't see any reason why they [the Russians] would have done it". Watching the USA president stand next to Putin, meekly accepting Russian propaganda over the conclusions of his own administration, I would argue that it is Trump who now looks weak.

Facing a barrage of questions about the war in Syrian and Russia's alleged role in Trump's 2016 election victory, both men broke into brief smiles as the Kremlin chief handed over the souvenir.

Mr Trump also continued to deny that there had been any other collusion between his campaign and Russians, declaring: "We ran a brilliant campaign and that's why I'm President". Putin's actions, and his alone, are why U.S. -Russia relations are at a low point.

It was also dubbed as the "Treason Summit" by CIA Director John Brennan.

Trump then launched an attack on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and wanted to know why it had failed to find Clinton's "missing" 33,000 emails.

"This entire trip has just been one giant middle finger from President Trump to his own country".

"We were not able to clear all the backlog, but I think we made a first important step in this direction", he said. "We've all been foolish", he said, before veering into discussion about his election victory.

Fox Business echoed Hume's comments.
