Trump Declines To Back US Intel On Russia Meddling

President Donald Trump traveled to Helsinki for a high-stakes one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Similarly, House Speaker Paul Ryan said: "There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world".

President Donald Trump said he sees no reason why Russian Federation would have interfered in the 2016 election. But he proceeded to undermine even that token acknowledgement of reality when he answered a reporter's question about whether he believed the US intelligence community's conclusion or Putin's denials.

"President trump gave a t-shirt Ovechkin and the puck", Peskov said in comments TASS.

Trump's eagerness to improve USA relations with Russian Federation had been met with skepticism in Congress, where lawmakers almost unanimously approved tough sanctions targeting Moscow in 2017. "He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people", Trump said.

American politicians on both sides of the aisle, as well as former US intelligence officials and diplomats, began sharply criticizing Trump's remarks, even before the president had boarded Air Force One for the flight back home. John McCain, R-Ariz., saying that "no prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant." Sen.

Putin declined to take the copy from Wallace, and the two men repeatedly talked over one another as the Russian president sought to rebuke the U.S. intelligence community's widespread assessment that Moscow interfered in the 2016 election with the aim of boosting Trump and damaging Hillary Clinton's candidacy.

"There is no moral equivalent between the United States and Russian Federation, which is hostile to our core values and ideals".

Senate and House Democratic leaders Schumer and Nancy Pelosi went so far as to hint that Trump's conduct might stem from Putin possibly having embarrassing information about him.

The special counsel investigating potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin charged a dozen Russian military intelligence officers on Friday with hacking the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign and then releasing the stolen communications online as part of a sweeping conspiracy to meddle in the election.

"They have no information on Trump", Trump said. "But I really do want to see the server", he said.

Of course dialogue between Russian Federation and the United States - on Syria, nuclear disarmament, Iran, Crimea and others matters - is desirable, even essential.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy was blunter: "This entire trip has just been one giant middle finger from President Trump to his own country".

President Trump told the press: "I think we have great opportunities together as two countries that frankly have not been getting along very well over the last number of years".

Putin said both countries considered it "necessary" to further work together on many issues, including extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, the risky situation surrounding the development of elements of the global system of American missile defense, and the implementation of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles as well as avoiding weapons being placed in space. The investigation, which is also examining whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow, has also resulted in charges against several former Trump campaign officials.

USA intelligence agencies have unanimously concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 campaign, most likely to help Trump's campaign.
