Trump sees no reason why Russian Federation would have meddled

Flake, who isn't running for re-election and has been a frequent critic of the president, took to Twitter after Trump and Putin held a joint news conference on Monday during their summit in Helsinki, Finland.

It seemed unlikely that American authorities would take seriously any such offer from Putin, and some USA lawmakers openly ridiculed the suggestion.

Congressman Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Trump had given Putin "a green light to interfere in 2018". "I felt this was a matter best discussed in person". The rest of the world hears you!

Speaking in the Finnish capital, Trump acknowledged that top intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan CoatsDaniel (Dan) Ray CoatsTrump stuns the world at Putin summit Trump: "Phony witch hunt" drove wedge between US, Russia Press: Whose side is Trump on?

Corker said he was "disappointed and saddened" that Trump would equate the statements of the intelligence community with the Russian President's and had sharp words for Trump's approach in general.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., called it "bizarre" and "flat-out wrong" for Trump to suggest that both countries are to blame for their deteriorated relationship.

"I hold both countries responsible". I think the USA has been foolish.

Flake apparently was referring to Trump's response when asked who was at fault for the decline in relations between the the US and Russian Federation.

The press conference, which followed an hours-long private meeting between Trump and Putin, featured the president casting doubt over the USA intelligence assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has been reluctant to blame Russian Federation for the hacks and again Monday refused to embrace the intelligence community assessment. Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor, on Friday accused 12 Russian military intelligence officers of carrying it out.

"Back then, he was a private individual, a businessman", Putin said. "It is a bad day for people in the United States and all over the world who believe in democracy and who are trying to understand what world our idiot president lives in". For those keeping track at home, that was not a yes.

The South Carolina senator also recommended Trump check a soccer ball Putin gifted to him for "listening devices" and urged him to never bring it to the White House. Instead, Trump said the pair was committed to Israel's security and maintained that the US and Russian militaries "do get along".

How would that work? "Because he talked about bringing the U.S. Russian Federation relationship back to normal", Putin said. So far there's no comment from Mueller's typically tight-lipped team.

When asked whether he wanted Mr. Trump to win, President Putin smiled.

Trump didn't even seem to mind Putin trolling him about Bill Browder and putative contributions to the Hillary Clinton campaign, which was supposed to be the centerpiece of the notorious June 2016 Trump Tower meeting. It's something a lot of people are wondering these days, considering Trump's recent disturbing behavior.

So it was interesting that when Putin was asked by an Associated Press reporter whether he had something on Trump, Putin totally punted. Intelligence officials publicly broke from the president's comments about Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.
