What Trump And Putin Agreed To In Helsinki

Russia’s foreign minister claims arrest of Maria Butina is based on fabricated charges and so should be released

"We don't know what was said in the room between them", she said.

"I saw the screaming headline on cable TV that there is malaise in the West Wing and I look forward to meeting her", quipped presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway.

"I'm glad he said what he said, because it left the impression that somehow we were siding with Putin versus our intelligence agencies", Rubio said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

Trump reversed that stance a day later under heavy attack from US politicians of both parties.

The meetings were documented in a Center for the National Interest report seen by Reuters that outlined its Russia-related activities from 2013 to 2015.

Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood on Friday defended the White House's invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to come to Washington in the fall.

"But can you just clarify, you don't believe that to be the case?" the reporter asked a third time.

On Wednesday, even before he claimed Russian Federation isn't targeting America, Trump tweeted that people who "HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin" suffer from "Trump Derangement Syndrome". Of those surveyed, 40% think that Trump went too far in his support, 15% said he didn't go far enough, and 35% found the support for Putin was about right.

The State Department's description Sunday of the officials' call mentions "a broad range of issues", including Syria, counterterrorism, dialogue between USA and Russian businesses and "diplomatic access". By way of comparison, in the Post-Schar School survey, 87 percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump's overall job performance as president.

And Sanders created a fresh headache for the administration when she said the White House was still reviewing a proposal from Putin to allow access by Russian law enforcement officials to Americans whom the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes in return for USA access to interrogations of Russian agents indicted for their alleged roles in interfering in the 2016 election.

"This idea that somehow we are not sure where our own president stands is deeply disturbing, and the best way to deal with that is to vote in November", she said to applause.

Sanders later said his comment was misinterpreted.

"Vladimir Putin has a very clear strategy", she said.

The meetings, revealed by several people familiar with the sessions and a report from a Washington think tank that arranged them, involved Stanley Fischer, Fed vice chairman at the time, and Nathan Sheets, then Treasury undersecretary for worldwide affairs. "Tightening now hurts all that we have done", Trump tweeted.

On Thursday, Trump said he was "not happy" that the Federal Reserve was raising interest rates, breaking with long-standing tradition at the White House of avoiding any influence on the USA central bank.

The president was criticized for failing to denounce Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The notion of a $400 million donation to the Democrat's campaign would be out of the question. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
