Trump 'Very Concerned' Russia Will Interfere in Upcoming Election - to Favor Democrats

Why America’s current Russophobia defies reasoning

Trump's supporters in Congress on Wednesday said they were giving him the benefit of the doubt on apparently rescinding his invitation to Putin.

Trump's lawyers continue to negotiate on terms of an interview with Mueller and have offered to make the president available exclusively to answer questions about whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation. At a press conference in Helsinki last week, President Putin told the world that he wanted Trump to win, saying, "Yes, I did, because he was the one who wanted to normalize relations with Russian Federation".

Most recently, Trump said on Tuesday that not only does he accept that foreign interference is taking place, he fears that this year, Russian Federation will direct its energies in support of Democrats who want to claim majorities in the House and Senate. But he added "they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats".

Donald trump said that he did not give in to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the talks in Helsinki.

National Security Adviser John Bolton cited Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in a statement announcing the delay.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) last week tasked them to hold hearings on beefing up the "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA)", the bipartisan bill which the Senate and House passed in August 2017, thinking thereby that they had blocked President Trump's ability to do what he just did towards reestablishing friendly relations with Russian Federation. He states often that Russian meddling in US elections is fake news.

Two key senators are joining forces on bipartisan legislation to protect North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and impose new sanctions on Russia after President Donald Trump's recent foreign trip, which included a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I have tremendous faith in Dan Coats. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has since sought to argue that the president was only "referring to the claim that his campaign had anything to do with it".

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, also a Republican, said on Thursday Putin would not be invited to address a joint session of Congress if he accepts Trump's invitation to visit, saying that was an honor reserved for allies.

At the same time, according to the Agency "Bloomberg", in the USA house of representatives, unlike the Senate, believe that the issue of new sanctions against Russian Federation should be treated carefully to avoid unexpected negative consequences for America.

Trump came under widespread criticism following his handling of a summit with NATO's leaders and his meeting last week with Putin. Trump has since clarified his remarks to side with the intelligence community.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and who co-sponsored a resolution last week condemning Russian Federation for interfering in the 2016 election, said he hoped any future meeting would be moved outside the United States.

The new sanctions push also comes as Pompeo prepares to go to Capitol Hill to testify in front of the Senate Foreign Relations committee - the first member of Trump's national security team to go to Congress in the wake of the meeting with Putin, which included a almost two-hour one-on-one sit-down with the Russian President.
