Donald Trump says Putin responsible for Russian meddling in 2016 election

Donald Trump says Putin responsible for Russian meddling in 2016 election

As Putin looked on beside him, Trump said, "I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russian Federation".

Cecilia Vega, the ABC News reporter who asked the question, said on Twitter that she believes the president heard her clearly.

Over three decades ago, Burson, featured in TIME's 100 Photographs, which documented the most influential photographs of all time, began her pioneering photographic work with MIT scientists, leading to the development of computer-generated compositing technology.

"The Russians want to have me handed over", Browder said.

He also lashed out at Europe and US-dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, saying Russian Federation would hit back with an "equivalent response" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bases near Russia's borders and other "aggressive steps", but did not elaborate on his comments. And so Putin and his guys only had the weekend to try to sort of figure out how do they deal with that.

US intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.

The idea to allow Russian officials the opportunity to question certain US -linked individuals arose after the Justice Department indicted 12 GRU military intelligence officers for their involvement in Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 USA election. "It is why I believe we are at a critical point", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Friday during an event at the Hudson Institute in Washington.

Despite his attempt at damage control over the reaction in Washington, Mr Trump has continued to insist that his meeting with Mr Putin was something to be proud of and has now said that he is anticipating another summit. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

Arab leaders demand world step in after Israel passes 'apartheid' bill
First introduced in 2011 and amended many times before being approved, the law states that Jerusalem is Israel's "united" capital. Palestinian members of the Israeli Knesset condemned the law, which enjoys constitutional power, as an "apartheid law".

"Thank you very much".

At a minimum, President Trump deserves credit for saying what he should have said to Vladimir Putin, that he accepts the findings of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election.

Former intelligence officials say Coats is just speaking truth to power, a mantra often used in describing the intelligence agencies' historical relationship with any president. "The system is blinking" and that "today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".

Trump asserted Wednesday at the White House that no other American president has been as tough on Russian Federation.

He added: "Some people hate the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russian Federation". He may have been pressured into saying it-not just by the media furor but by Mike Pence, John Kelly, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, according to reports-but he said it nonetheless. "So certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes".

In the House, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi staged a vote in support of the intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

After backlash and criticism from both critics and members of his own party, Trump tried on Tuesday to walk back his summit comments, saying that he had misspoken.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who took the president at his word Tuesday, said yesterday there was no question that Russian Federation continues efforts to interfere with U.S. elections systems - saying it was a "guarantee".
