  • White House denies that Trump said Russian Federation no longer targeting U.S.

"Even if he wanted to get something from Trump, it never goes anywhere", the diplomat said. Too bad they don't want to focus on all of the ECONOMIC and JOBS records being set, ' he noted Thursday. "It really puts in jeopardy the professional independence of diplomats anywhere in the world, if the outcome of their actions is going to be potentially being turned over to a foreign government". Sure, she wasn't a ideal candidate, but she wasn't Donald Trump either, and that should have been enough. But then a bunch of things happened shortly before the election.

First, Wikileaks starting posting a trove of leaked emails sent by people around Clinton.

As Time noted, Trump's 2020 re-election campaign released an ad in the wake of the deadly Charlottesville white supremacist demonstrations past year that called the press and career Democratic politicians the enemy.

Lawmakers also piled on the criticism, with some suggesting it may be grounds for removing Trump from office.

On Friday of last week was when Mueller issued the indictments against the 12 [Russian military intelligence agency] officers for hacking the USA election.

The president's behavior led some to speculate on whether Putin had leverage over Trump, possibly including his knowledge of any past business dealings between the president and Russians.

And as we all now know, Trump ended up winning the election, but it was really close. It's impossible to know. "We've committed to nothing".

In exchange, Putin told Trump he's prepared to let the USA access Russian intelligence officials who have been accused of meddling in the 2016 election.

Ok, But What Did He Do This Week?

The July issue's cover comes after the two leaders' controversial summit in Helsinki, Finland earlier this week.

The commission's findings came with fines: about $26,270 for Darren Grimes , the founder of BeLeave; and $80,000 for Vote Leave . We can not have confidence that this referendum was secure, and it should be re-run", she said.


Sanders called the legislation a "hypothetical" and declined to say whether the president would back it. "The Helsinki meeting was an opportunity to see where the relationship could go in the future".

US Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchinson and John Huntsman, US ambassador to Russian Federation, briefed NATO ambassadors of the North Atlantic Council, the principal decision-making body within NATO, about the Helsinki talks in Brussels on Tuesday.

The president stated without hedging that Russian Federation meddled in the election, although on Tuesday he raised the possibility someone else also could have been hacking.

The White House said late on July 18 that it is considering the offer, made by Putin to President Donald Trump at their summit in Helsinki on July 16, but the State Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation dismissed Russia's request, with the department calling it "absolutely absurd". After coming home, however, Trump said he had "misspoke" during the conference.

But sure, Trump has said a lot of dumb shit before, so why is this time different? Because this time he's being condemned on all sides.

Despite the controversy, Republican voters seem to be sticking by Mr Trump. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, one of the President's biggest supporters, called him out on Twitter.

But it did not escape the notice of vigilant observers that Trump, using a black Sharpie pen, had crossed out a statement in his prepared statement about bringing the perpetrators of hacking to justice and that he qualified his statement with the impromptu remark that it could have been the handiwork of "other people". Ioffe says that she was always a skeptic of the notion that Putin had the goods on Trump. Former CIA Director John Brennan, who has worked in both Democratic and Republican administrations, quickly tweeted that Trump's conduct in Helsinki was "nothing short of treasonous".

Treason would, obviously, meet the "high crimes and misdemeanours" standard needed to impeach a President.

To a question about that assessment, the president told the CBS News interviewer: "I have said that numerous times before, and I would say that is true, yeah".

Even Republican lawmakers who accepted Trump's Tuesday walkback, when he explained that he misspoke when he said he had no reason to believe Russian Federation was involved in election interference, sounded the alarm yesterday.
