Senate Votes 98-0 Against Russian Interrogations of U.S

  • Top intel official says he meant no disrespect to Trump

"Sort of a double negative".

Rood explained that in years past, U.S. presidents have consistently had exchanges with their Russian counterparts, and he noted that Russia is an important country "on the world stage". Another resolution would have backed the finding by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

But Trump made some adjustments to the written statement he read aloud, adding that the meddlers "could be other people also".

President Putin said "useful agreements" had been reached during the summit but we don't know what they are.

Rosenstein last week announced that 12 Russian intelligence officials had been charged with computer hacking and other offences during the 2016 election.

Trump's misplaced and unsafe equivocation (he should have firmly rejected Putin's preposterous request) led directly to the vote on Schumer's resolution, which was an unusual display of bipartisanship in these dramatically divided times.

Moscow is open to a possible visit by Vladimir Putin to Washington after a surprise invitation from Donald Trump, Russia's U.S. envoy has said.

"I and the entire intel (ligence) community are committed to providing the best possible intelligence to inform and support President Trump's ongoing efforts to prevent Russian meddling in our upcoming elections, to build strong relationships internationally in order to maintain peace, denuclearize risky regimes and protect our nation and our allies", Coats added in his statement.

Evacuations from besieged pro-regime towns complete in Syria

The reporter asked again, and Trump said "no" again.

Another reporter shouts a question, and Trump says "thank you very much everybody".

Many in the White House did not immediately see fault in Sanders' comments that the West Wing was merely considering the Kremlin offer, but it provided fresh tinder for the bipartisan firestorm. Senior Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham said Trump's answer on meddling "will be seen by Russian Federation as a sign of weakness". "My admittedly awkward response was in no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the president", Coats said. Told that Sanders had since clarified, she responded: "There's a walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back?"

"The great mystery is why this president has not spoken up for our country, and we saw this most clearly in this recent meeting with Putin", she said.

A White House spokesperson, Lindsay Walters, wanted to make clear that the president "respects the independence of the Fed".
