Alleged Russian Spy Told Senate Panel About Backing From Billionaire, Source Says

Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, said in a statement Saturday that he did not intend to be disrespectful when he expressed surprise over a second summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In other bad news for the USA, the Russian Ministry of Defense has released videos of nuclear weapons that top the United States Army's according to the Inquisitr.

"I don't have any doubt that President Trump is aware of the things Vladimir Putin has done", Rubio said.

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", Trump said Tuesday, reading from a prepared statement. The ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee told ABC News that "Trump is acting like someone who is compromised".

Maria Butina, the Russian citizen accused of attempting to infiltrate US political organizations, received financial support from a Russian billionaire with ties to USA energy and technology firms, according to a report Sunday.

"I can tell you this, Brett, the president has access to every bit of evidence", Gowdy explained.

When Butina, who had spoken during the day about her gun rights activism, mentions she is from Russia, Trump appears to crack a smile, video obtained by The Guardian shows.

Butina, along with her mentor, Kremlin-linked banker Alexander Torshin, worked for years to establish communications in the United States for Russian Federation, according to court filings and previous CNN reporting, and used the National Rifle Association as a major avenue of influence. "We need new sanctions, heavy-handed sanctions, hanging over his head, and then meet with him".

As for the Helsinki meeting, "now we have Putin telling the world what was decided", she said, while "we're hearing crickets from the White House; nothing has been put out that contradicts or replaces Putin's agenda".

"The reason why the rest of the world in large part has repaired to us is not the example of our power, but the power of our example", Biden said. "I am concerned about any time you ... say at a press conference that you agree with Putin over our intelligence community. What his motivations are, I think is a legitimate question, one that I trust that the Special Council is investigating", former United States national security advisor, Susan Rice, told ABC News in an interview.

"The damage inflicted by President Trump's naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate".

"And they didn't agree on anything, unlike what has been reported by apparently the Russian government in a way to mislead us", Bossert said. He claims that the FBI's discoveries are "100 percent accurate" and that Congress has a responsibility to acknowledge it.

The two leaders met for a conference in Helsinki on July 16 to talk about a broad range of topics.
