Be tough on Russian meddling

Trump Putin summit The leaders side by side

He added that he had spent a great deal of time talking to Putin about the accusations of election meddling, but that he had "no reason to believe" that President Putin's government had interfered with the U.S. presidential campaign in 2016.

Trump's comments also stunned some pundits on the president's favorite television channel: Fox News.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat from New Hampshire, is calling on President Donald Trump's interpreter from his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin to testify before Congress.

Tchantouridze says former President Obama was too cautious in his dealings with Russian Federation, so this could produce different results.

'It was nothing short of treasonous.

The same day as the Trump-Putin summit, two separate events took place. Republican Patriots: Where are you???,' said Brennan, who served as the nation's intelligence chief when the meddling was occurring during the presidency of Barack Obama.

And Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, tweeted: 'What do the Russians have on @realDonaldTrump personally, financially, & politically?'

At the summit, Mr Putin again denied meddling in the U.S. election, and in a later interview dismissed longstanding reports that Russian intelligence may hold compromising material on Mr Trump.

On Tuesday, Britain's new Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Britain supported Australia and the Netherlands in their call for Russian Federation to be held accountable.

On Monday, Trump said on Twitter that "Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of US foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!"

The morning after in the United Kingdom, the Daily Mirror tabloid newspaper ran coverage of the summit on its front page, labeling Trump "Putin's poodle" and quoting former CIA Director and career intelligence officer John Brennan who described the US President's performance as "nothing short of treasonous". "Absolutely I'm with the president on this; the (U.S.) intelligence community was full of biased people", Republican Senator Rand Paul told CNN.

"In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't".

McConnell said he was speaking from the Senate because he thinks "it's important for friends and allies to hear from us".

Trump's statements "amounted to an unprecedented refusal by a U.S. president to believe his own intelligence agencies over the word of a foreign adversary", CNN says.

Presidents Putin and Trump will meet today at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people. How many times have I stood up here and told you what I think about Vladimir Putin?

"With Trump's repudiation of U.S. Intelligence, Director Dan Coats should resign in protest and disgust", former CIA official Larry Pfeiffer said. So it was unbelievable and very, very disturbing, ' Clapper said Monday on CNN.

He said Russian actions had no impact on the outcome of the vote and the administration would work aggressively to protect the November 2018 congressional elections.
