Working to ensure Russia does not meddle in US elections: White House

Working to ensure Russia does not meddle in US elections: White House

The Trump impeachment bet is more popular than Brexit, any United Kingdom election or the 100 other special bets on the site, Price said.

He also accused past American leaders, rather than Russia's destabilizing actions in the U.S. and around the world, for the souring of relations between two countries.

"The President's going to meet with his team and we'll let you know when we have an announcement on that", she said.

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

HORSLEY: It sounds like sort of typical Trumpian hyperbole, but some analysts I've talked with say it's not without foundation.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Wednesday to questions about a claim Russian President Vladimir Putin made about millions of dollars being illegally funneled out of Russia into the Clinton campaign.

"No", Trump told reporters at a Cabinet meeting Wednesday afternoon in response to a question regarding whether Russian Federation was still targeting US elections. Sanders added that Trump "said it was an interesting idea".

The president's comment continues his reluctance to strongly condemn President Putin head on for what USA intelligence agencies have concluded was clear interference by the Kremlin, under Putin's direction, to disrupt the 2016 presidential election.

Another Republican senator - John Thune of South Dakota - said having the translator give testimony was "highly unlikely".

In the Wednesday interview Mr Trump continued with his changing assertions, saying he would hold Putin personally responsible for future election interference. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.

us intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.

"I thought it would be obvious but would like to clarify in case it wasn't". "And when they tell me something, it means a lot".

She added that it's "our goal" to stop any foreign meddling and that Trump made clear during his meeting with Putin to "stay out of United States elections".

The president now says he accepts that meddling did happen, but insists it did not intefere with the result of the election which saw him become president. He also said he misspoke when he suggested otherwise in a widely criticized press conference with Putin on Monday.

The US president also spoke on Wednesday of his summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels, saying "incredible progress" had been made "toward achieving greater peace, security and prosperity for America and for our allies". "I'm assuming that some of the information could only be given in a classified setting so I would think that before the relevant committees, I'm not saying it ought to be done in a public hearing, we at least ought to get access to the notes that the translators keep".
