Senate shuts down possibility of Russian Federation questioning USA officials

Patty Aguilar | 20 July, 2018, 23:55

In a tweet on July 19, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders wrote that Trump "asked [national security adviser John Bolton] to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already under way".

The critics blamed Trump for siding with Russian Federation, undermining his own intelligence agencies. But this time there was no joint statement to formalize the outcome of the talks - just a meandering, 45-minute press conference where Trump stoked controversy by appearing to side with Putin over US intelligence agencies' assessment that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election. "Maybe in a year or two", he tells The Hill.

The announcement of a second summit comes as US officials have been mum on what, if anything, the two leaders agreed to in Helsinki during their more than two-hour one-on-one meeting, in which only translators were present.

'Now, with that being said, if that doesn't work out, I'll be the worst enemy he's ever had. "We are ready for discussions on this subject".

Only interpreters were present for the two leaders' private meeting and details of what was discussed remain unknown.

Russian Federation is ready to discuss a proposed new meeting between Putin and Trump, Interfax news agency cited Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, as saying on Friday.

American intelligence agencies concluded a year ago that Russian Federation carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 USA election, seeking to sow discord and disparage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Russian envoy: Moscow open to Putin visit to Washington
Asked if he would single out Putin and hold him " personally responsible ", Trump said to Glor that he would. Coats said Thursday it's "technically possible" but that it "probably won't happen".

Trump later reiterated his support for the intelligence community on Twitter, while adding that diplomacy between Russian Federation and the US must also be a priority.

Putin has denied any such meddling.

The Helsinki summit has resulted in yet another spate of widespread criticism of POTUS, after he said he sided with Putin over his own nation's intelligence reports on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The Justice Department said on Thursday it would alert the public about foreign cyber operations like Russia's disinformation campaign.

The intel chief was informed live on stage and on camera at an event in Colorado with MSNCB journalist Andrea Mitchell, and was visibly shocked by the announcement.

The White House has faced an uproar over several issues from the summit including Mr Trump's failure to confront Mr Putin over USA intelligence agencies' findings that Russia meddled in the 2016 United States election and Mr Putin's proposal that Russian authorities be allowed to question U.S. citizens.

Mr Trump also accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats.

That all seemed lost on President Trump on Monday, when he spoke at the Helsinki news conference standing next to Putin. He added that when he joined the administration, he met the president and told him that, as non-sycophants are wont to do, there would be times that he would bring news he didn't want to hear.
