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

68% of Republicans approve Trump's handling of summit, poll finds

"Until we know what happened at that two-hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin".

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

Russian Federation was also seeking to interview Michael McFaul, another Putin critic who was U.S. ambassador to Moscow under President Obama. "They used to call Reagan the great communicator, but Trump has outpaced him for sure". "If I was loud & vicious, I would have been criticized for being too tough".

Top U.S. intelligence officials have said Moscow is targeting congressional elections in November as well. "That is an abuse of power", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) charged.

He told confidants in the days that followed that he was pleased with how his summit with Putin went, believing he had taken the measure of the man and opened the door to deals down the road on a number of thorny issues.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's statement said the July 21 conversation took place "at the initiative of the United States. So, certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes".

'I think we will learn more.

NEGROPONTE: Well, I think he's got as good an ability as anybody else to do it.

The New York Times later reported, and the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed to CNN, that Trump was briefed on specific USA intelligence indicating that Putin personally ordered the 2016 Russian influence campaign. Nor did the White House have any real interagency meetings to plan last month's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

Only interpreters were present for the two leaders' private meeting and details of what was discussed remain unknown.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats appeared to be shocked on Thursday when he learned Putin was being invited by the Trump administration to the nation's capital after spending much of the week reiterating warnings about Russia's dubious intentions regarding the U.S. electoral process.


HORSLEY: The administration has also imposed sanctions on dozens of Russian oligarchs and government officials.

Asked about it during a news conference in Berlin on Friday, Merkel said she was "pleased whenever there is a meeting" between the U.S. and Russian Federation.

He did not elaborate on what Putin's solutions would be.

The move may be seen as an effort to sidestep European peace efforts for Ukraine and increase the pressure on the Ukrainian government in its protracted conflict with pro-Russian separatists in the Donbas region.

"The warning signs are there", he said.

Putin has signaled in the wake of his summit with Trump that he and the US President reached several agreements, but neither Trump nor the White House have confirmed any substantive agreements between the two countries.

"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!"

Gen. Joseph Leonard Votel of U.S. Central Command said Thursday he has received no new orders regarding Syria.

The U.S. Senate rebuked the president for not outright rejecting the proposal, overwhelmingly passing a non-binding resolution against allowing Russian Federation to question U.S. officials.

The White House is still trying to clean up post-summit Trump statements on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The visit will be controversial because it will bring a U.S. adversary accused of masterminding a scheme to help put Trump into power to the United States at about the same time as midterm elections that USA spy agencies say are already falling victim to Moscow's meddling.
