Russians Pessimistic About US Ties After Helsinki Summit, Survey Says

Russians Pessimistic About US Ties After Helsinki Summit, Survey Says

"Why would we tolerate that of Russian Federation?"

"They didn't agree on anything, unlike what's been reported by, apparently by, the Russian government in a way to mislead us", Bossert said on ABC's "This Week".

Bossert conditioned his assessment on the fact that the White House has not offered an accounting, even to senior USA intelligence officials, of what occurred in the private meeting between the two leaders.

By the time Trump arrived back in the US, the parade of critical statements had become a stampede, leaving the president the most isolated he'd been in the White House since last year's controversy over white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville. Critics had warned that the format risked allowing Russian Federation to put its own spin on the session.

Coats had already been under scrutiny since he said he wished Trump had not met one-on-one with the Russian leader and expressed dismay that the president had publicly undermined USA intelligence agencies.

"I hope that [special counsel] Bob Mueller's investigating it, because again, if that's the leverage the Russians are using, it would not only explain the president's behavior, but it would help protect the country by knowing that in fact our president was compromised", he concluded.

The White House then said that, too, was a misunderstanding.

"The reality is we have no idea what this president, our president agreed to" in the two-hourlong meeting, though "the Kremlin intelligence agents know exactly what took place in that meeting", Schiff said.

An AFP photographer there saw a plume of smoke emerging from the sloping hilltop overlooking agricultural plains on Monday. On Thursday, the Assad forces conquered the town of Daraa, the capital of the province of the same name.

But public reaction nationally appears more muted than in Washington, where Trump faced withering bipartisan criticism for appearing to side with Putin over U.S. intelligence agencies at a Monday news conference held in Helsinki. And yet, unless Trump made agreements or promises to Putin that neither side has so far disclosed, the danger of Trump impetuously pulling the United States rug from under European security has - for now - passed. "To me, that's beyond comprehension".

She said: "President Trump asked (national security adviser John Bolton) to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway".

The committee chairman went on to say that Trump intelligence officials should resign if the president continues to disregard their advice. "I've spent days, not just hours, but days, actually looking at intelligence".

"Just have sanctions that can fall on Russian Federation like a hammer", Graham said on CBS' "Face the Nation". This is the paradox of Russian power-Moscow is influential precisely because it's weak. "But Putin uses disinformation & the law to silence his critics or chase them out of the country as you know well".

"I don't have any doubt that President Trump is aware of the things Vladimir Putin has done", Rubio added. When asked about Trump casting doubts about USA intelligence in regards to Russian meddling, the number jumped to 56 percent disapproving to just 29 percent approving.

But another Republican, Sen. As I said, it was not a good moment, but it was what it was.

Visible portions of the heavily redacted documents, released Saturday under the Freedom of Information Act, show the Federal Bureau of Investigation telling the court that Page "has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government".
