Trump & Putin Helsinki Summit with Russian Expert William Taubman | Connecting Point

Trump & Putin Helsinki Summit with Russian Expert William Taubman | Connecting Point

"Trump falsely claimed that a dossier by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele "was responsible for starting" the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign".

President Donald Trump went through with the Helsinki summit with Putin against the wishes of top Democrats after Mueller's indictments of 12 Russian officials. "Harden our electoral infrastructure for 2018, '" Graham said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "We need new sanctions, heavy-handed sanctions, hanging over his head, and then meet with him".

In a statement on Saturday, Coats sought to clarify his incredulous reaction to the breaking news that Trump invited the Russian leader to a follow-up meeting in the White House in the wake of their first meetup in Helsinki on Monday. Congressional elections will take place in November.

Clinton said failure to officially record the meeting gave Putin the opportunity to put out press releases about what was accomplished and spin the results however he'd like while, she said, "we're hearing crickets" from the White House.

"I do think it odd". The fact that we have to talk to you about Syria or other matters is very different from issuing an invitation. Gowdy made his remarks during an interview on television's "Fox News Sunday".

Perhaps it was this support from his party - 70 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's summit performance, according to a recent CBS poll - that led Trump to go back to what he has believed all along: that US intelligence can not be trusted. Rubio co-authored the legislation with Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen, a bipartisan effort revived by the fallout of last week's summit. "There was this fury from the media that a lot of folks thought they had to react to".

Under pressure from Congress, which past year passed a tough sanctions law targeting Russia, the US Treasury in April imposed sanctions on Russian officials and oligarchs for election meddling and "malign" activities. It could be some other power, not just Russian Federation. "If your own Director of National Intelligence doesn't know, it is by definition a secret deal".

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last week identified the bill as a potential step Congress could take to push back against Russian Federation as Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for sanctions and other deterrents. "I will also say this", Gowdy opined. "Here's what we will never know, we will never know whether or not the Federal Bureau of Investigation had enough without the [Steele] dossier, the DNC-funded dossier because they included it and everyone who reads this FISA application sees the amount of reliance they placed on this product funded by Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC".
