Concern in White House over intelligence chief's Russian summit surprise

Patty Aguilar | 21 July, 2018, 22:43

In the CNBC interview, Trump reiterated that he valued the chance of improving the Washington relationship with the Kremlin - despite the U.S. intelligence community's findings that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

During the event, Coats also claimed that he didn't know exactly what happened during U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Putin earlier this week. According to a report from Bloomberg citing unnamed officials that were present at a closed-door speech on July 19, Putin revealed that he had made a proposal to Trump to hold a referendum in eastern Ukraine over the political status of the separatist territories in Donbas.

Trump tweeted Thursday that he looked forward a "second meeting" with Putin and defended his performance at Monday's summit, in which the two leaders conferred on a range of issues including terrorism, Israeli security, nuclear proliferation and North Korea.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that meetings between USA and Russian presidents should become "normal" again.

Dan Sullivan said "I wouldn't do it, that's for damn sure".

It also calls for the full implementation of sanctions that Congress passed previous year and hearings aimed at getting to the bottom what Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin discussed behind closed doors.

Mr Trump faced a backlash after contradicting his own intelligence chiefs at a joint post-summit news conference with Mr Putin by doubting Russian interference in the 2016 United States election. The votes were not recognised by Ukraine, the U.S. or the European Union, while Russian Federation said it "respected" the results. He said Russian diplomats will work with American counterparts to "fulfill the agreements reached".

Something we know was discussed was an offer from Putin to allow USA investigators question Russians in exchange for Moscow being allowed question U.S. citizens, including a former ambassador.

The Senate's vote is nonbinding but it marked a rare decision by Republican leader Mitch McConnell to take up a resolution written by top Democrat Chuck Schumer undercutting the Republican president.

"Who do you believe?", Lemire had asked, referring to Trump's well established disbelief in the US intelligence community's ironclad conclusions about Russia's efforts to subvert America's democracy. Earlier this week, the two had a meeting in Finland. The Kremlin had said in April that the president had invited the Russian leader to the White House when they spoke by telephone in March.

The Russian ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, told a conference in Moscow that the accusations against Maria Butina are groundless and that American authorities tried to "break her" and refused her consular visits for the first few days after her arrest.

White House officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment, Bloomberg reported. -Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War", but that the meeting with Trump allowed a start on "the path to positive change". On Tuesday, the Russian general prosecutor's office said to little fanfare that Putin misspoke and meant $400 000.
