  • Helsinki demonstrations ahead of Trump Putin summit

White House officials are furious that special counsel Robert Mueller dropped new grand jury indictments against 12 Russian military officials ahead of President Donald Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "He may come in with maps of Syria or maps of Ukraine, and frankly I think he'll take advantage of this president, who we know doesn't do much prep work before these meetings", Sen.

"Nothing bad's gonna come out of it, and maybe some good will come out", Trump said.

The indictment - which comes days before President Donald Trump holds a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin - was the clearest allegation yet of Russian efforts to meddle in American politics.

Speaking on the BBC, she said: "He told me I should sue the European Union - not go into negotiations".

Advisors and critics have asked Mr Trump to press Mr Putin over the death of a woman who was exposed to Novichok in Amesbury and the election meddling accusations.

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can't compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens, and a provision in Russia's constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries. I did it. You got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think. At another notable point in the 30-minute conversation, Trump reportedly falsely claimed his administration's widely criticized policy of separating undocumented immigrants from the border was actually an Obama-era policy. But at the same time Iran is a good partner to us in terms of trade, economic cooperation and political dialogue. "This is a very serious matter. We have to start to set them right", added Ushakov.

"For the president to demand something that isn't going to happen puts the president in a weak position, " he said. "I think it's ridiculous".

Their first meeting came last July when both took part in an worldwide summit and continued for more than two hours, well over the scheduled 30 minutes.

Since the 29-page indictment was unsealed Friday, Trump has continued to blame President Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee for leaving the Democratic email servers vulnerable to hacking.

A dozen Russian intelligence officers were charged with indictment on Friday after their involvement in the hacking and leaking of emails of senior Democrats during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

He said the summit is important as the start of a dialogue, not only about election meddling but a range of issues. "We also do the same".

"Vladimir Putin is a trained KGB agent. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Tusk tweeted late Sunday during an EU-China summit in Beijing, without naming Trump directly.

In the runup to the summit, Tusk delivered a blunt message to Trump to stop criticising European allies.
