'Batshit crazy': Trump discussed allowing Putin to interrogate United States ambassador

19 July, 2018, 07:25 | Author: Darnell Taylor

President Donald Trump has said he holds Russian President Vladimir Putin personally responsible for Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"They did interfere in our elections - it's really, clear", House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday morning, reinforcing his message Monday of outrage and suggesting openness to new sanctions.

He reiterated that he believes the assessment of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation did interfere in the election.

Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to allow the United States access to Russians accused of election meddling in return for interviews of Americans accused by the Kremlin of unspecified crimes. "I would, because he's in charge of the country".

Both parties called for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other officials to appear before Congress and tell exactly what happened during Mr Trump's two-hour private session with Mr Putin.

"It was important for the President to know what information we've uncovered because he's got to make very important decisions for the country, so he needs to understand what evidence we have of foreign election interference", Rosenstein said.

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki", Trump tweeted.

"The sentence should have been, "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't, or why it wouldn't be Russia" instead of "why it would", Trump said Tuesday of the comments he had made in Helsinki.

The 29-page indictment against the 12 Russian intelligence officers was announced on Friday - just days before Trump's meeting with Putin.

How The Trump-Putin Relationship Resonates With The President's Supporters
Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed that no USA president has been as "tough" as him on Russian Federation . Trump called Brennan a "low-life" in Wednesday's interview, saying that "in the past, it's been awful ".

"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today". Russian officials have said they want to interview Kremlin critics Bill Browder and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome".

In an appearance before a House committee last week, Christopher Krebs, the top official overseeing cybersecurity and elections for the Department of Homeland Security, said that he has seen no evidence of a concerted effort by Russian Federation to hack the upcoming elections.

"Even in talking with you now, I am afraid to say something positive about the American president", he said, "because when American journalists or policymakers read my interview, they'll say Russian Federation is again meddling and helping Donald Trump".

Putin accused Browder of making campaign contributions to Trump's election rival Hillary Clinton with money he earned in Russian Federation on which he did not pay taxes. Trump shook his head and said, "No".

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has since reiterated his support of the conclusions of multiple intelligence agencies that Russians meddled in the election.

"We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match". Putin said US intelligence officers helped Browder.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a very vocal opponent of Donald Trump ever since he began his presidential campaign.

"He wants to work with his team and determine if there's any validity that would be helpful to the process", Sanders said.

"He's held aloft by his base for now, but the base alone is not sufficient and I think we're in for a rough ride this fall."
And given that Trump's warmth toward Russian Federation and Putin represents a recent shift from the longstanding Republican view of suspicion and outright hostility toward Russian Federation, and before that the communist Soviet Union, this spike in Republicans' positive view may not last. "There are lots of people out there".
