'Say that again?': USA intelligence chief's shocked response to Putin invitation

"And we have got to make sure that Russian Federation does not interfere, not only in our elections, but in other aspects of our lives". He also went fishing with him in Kennebunkport, Maine.

"I don't know what happened in that meeting", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said. Moments before the vote, the White House rebuked its openness to Putin's offer. Putin's request came in a private meeting between the two leaders during this week's Russian and American leaders during the recent Helsinki summit, in which no note-takers were present and from which no read-out was released.

Ahead of the summit, Ukraine had expressed concerns that the USA and Russian leaders could strike a "grand bargain" on the conflict without consulting Kiev.

Antonov gave details of their discussions on arms control, but said the U.S. has been reluctant to back Russia's proposals so far.

The US president on Thursday listed the topics discussed as "stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more".

AP Photo/Andrew HarnikSanders on Wednesday told reporters Trump did not mean to suggest Russian Federation is not planning future attacks on the U.S. electoral system.

"The added funds will provide equipment to support ongoing training programs and operational needs, including capabilities to enhance Ukraine's command and control, situational awareness systems, secure communications, military mobility, night vision, and military medical treatment", the Pentagon said in a statement. 'That's going to be special'.

When Coats pushed back at Trump's Monday statements siding with Putin on election interference, senior aides were fearful he might quit, according to the Post.

His summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki may have ended on Monday, but U.S. President Donald Trump has since been dogged by questions on whether he believes Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election - mainly due to his own shifting answers. Trump was initially warm to the proposal, proposed by Vladimir Putin, calling it "an incredible offer".

The Trump administration has had quite a week on an array of issues, but especially the topic of Russian election interference.

Concern in White House over intelligence chief's Russian summit surprise
On Tuesday, the Russian general prosecutor's office said to little fanfare that Putin misspoke and meant $400 000. He said Russian diplomats will work with American counterparts to "fulfill the agreements reached".

Roseanne Barr's "Official Statement" on Roseanne Cancellation Is Nonsense
Another inflammatory post from Roseanne Barr about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and this time it's on video . The interviews will then reportedly be shared on Barr's YouTube page, so no networks can censor her.

I expect large scale protests in Washington, DC, should Putin accept Trump's invitation. "Look at the diplomats I threw out", Trump said.

"So ask yourself, why would Putin be trying to get Donald Trump elected president?"

Democratic lawmakers erupted into chants of "USA!" During the Monday press conference, he alleged that Bill Browder, an investor and Putin critic accused of financial crimes in Russian Federation, contributed $400 million to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

He said at the United Nations he was "happy that the two leaders of two very important countries are continuing to meet".

In exchange, Russian Federation would want to interrogate U.S. citizens accused of unspecified crimes.

Senate Republicans joined Democrats in swiftly passing a resolution, 98-0, that put the Senate on record against the questioning of American officials by a foreign government.

He added: "My thoughts there were that I needed to correct the record".

Butina was ordered jailed in the USA on July 19 until her trial on charges she conspired to establish a back channel between Russians and American politicians. Other aides said they anxious the president would take what he said as a "personal betrayal".

Michael McFaul was the target of a smear campaign by Putin during his time in Russian Federation that accused him, among other things, of being a pedophile.

He last visited the White House in 2005, when he met President George W. Bush, who welcomed the Russian leader in the East Room as "my friend".
