IN Focus: Indiana lawmakers question Trump approach to Russian Federation

IN Focus: Indiana lawmakers question Trump approach to Russian Federation

Trump said in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations. But I think it is highly unlikely that you'll see any change in Crimea", Mr. Huntsman said on NBC's "Meet the Press". While Putin has long denied Russian involvement and did so again Monday, the USA intelligence community has long maintained that Russia did, in fact, meddle in the US election, and just three days ago, the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian government agents for hacking the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can not compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens. "I think the DNC (Democratic National Committee) should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked", he said.

Donald Trump will touch down in Helsinki today, ahead of tomorrow's meeting with Vladimir Putin at Finland's presidential palace.

The president declined to discuss his goals for the summit - "I'll let you know after the meeting", he said - but said he believes such get-togethers are beneficial in and of themselves. I think having meetings with the president of China [Xi Jinping] was a very good thing.

Setting the scene just hours ahead of his summit with Vladimir Putin, Trump took to Twitter to lash out at U.S. special prosecutor Robert Mueller's probe. Trump tweeted. "Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems (.) know how to do is resist and obstruct!"

Trump administration requests more time to reunite immigrant families
It's been more than a week since they released a tally of how many kids from separated families remain in government custody. The odds are particularly steep in cases where those parents have already been deported, as the government argued Thursday.

Glor brought up the indicted Russian officers and asked, "Would you ask Putin to send them here?"

"I think it'd be a moot point; I don't think Russian Federation is sending anyone back over here for trial, the same way we wouldn't send anybody over there for trial", the Kentucky senator said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union".

This interview comes on the heels of Trump's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings where he asked for members to double their defense spending. Bolton described the meeting as "unstructured", saying: "We're not looking for concrete deliverables here".

The leaders are holding a summit Monday in Helsinki.

Trump was notified about the indictments earlier last week as he prepared for the July 16 summit between him and Putin.
