Putin: Russia 'Has Never Interfered' With American Elections

Anderson Cooper has never been one to hold back when it comes to critiquing President Donald Trump.

Russia's Vladimir Putin said Monday he did want Donald Trump to win the 2016 US presidential election but took no action during the campaign to make it happen.

Putin said he did not even know that Trump was in Moscow at the time (as if compromising information could not have been collected anyway).

"President Putin says it's not Russian Federation".

Trump went on. "I have confidence in both parties", he said before turning to partisan politics. "Russia has conducted a coordinated cyberattack on state election systems, and hacked critical infrastructure". "They have used social media to sow chaos and discord in our society. They have beaten and harassed US diplomats and violated anti-proliferation treaties".

"Because of the President's reckless and disgusting behavior, the entire week has been a disaster for American leadership and our standing in the world". There is simply no comparing the actions of the United States and Vladimir Putin. "Nor does he want to be our friend", Burr added.

"I think that the United States has been foolish", he said.

Earlier Monday, former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan said the joint press conference in Helsinki was an impeachable offense.

"The ghost of Ronald Reagan must be in shock". "However, what occurred today was a new low and a profound embarrassment for America". "Putin is not a democratically elected leader - he is a dictator".

The Russian foreign ministry responded by liking Trump's tweet and then replying: "We agree". "The Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere in internal USA affairs", he said. Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion and called the investigation a "witch hunt".

When asked whether he wanted Mr. Trump to win, President Putin smiled.

"There's no question that Putin interfered in the elections", Corker told reporters in Washington.

"Yes, I did. Yes, I did".

McCain joined other congressional Republicans on Monday in contradicting Trump and acknowledging Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Flake apparently was referring to Trump's response when asked who was at fault for the decline in relations between the the US and Russian Federation.

Asked what Putin gained from the meeting with Trump, Corker said he thought the Russian leader "gained a tremendous amount".

Experts in Russian Federation, however, felt the results were less dramatic, cautioning that, in reality, they saw very little substance in what was announced by the two leaders and noting that it remained to be seen whether Trump could actually deliver on the commitments he had made. "Unfortunately, recent history casts serious doubt on if that is even a possibility".

Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, called it "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

At the time, Flake tweeted that the indictments reaffirmed that Russian Federation interfered with the elections. Trump wrote on Twitter.

What has United States reaction been? Russian Federation poses a grave threat to our national security. Today, Trump learned that no matter what political party, USA citizens prefer that their president side with the US instead of with a dictator.

Trump also said Putin felt "very strongly" about Russian election interference and said Putin "has an interesting idea".
