Trump Appears To Contradict Intelligence Officials Again On Russia

WH considering Putin proposal to let Russia interrogate ex-US ambassador financier

He cited US sanctions on Russia and the expulsion of alleged Russian spies from the USA, telling reporters that Putin "understands it, and he's not happy about it".

For perhaps the first time in his presidency, US President Donald Trump admitted that he made a mistake. "I have tremendous faith in [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats".

At a later briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president was saying "no" to answering questions, not to the question itself.

She said the threat to the United States electoral system "still exists, which is why we are taking steps to prevent it".

KIRO Radio's Dori Monson could have a new career in store as a speech-writer for President Trump.

The US president said he simply misspoke when he said he saw no reason to believe Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 election that put him in the White House. "Look at what we've done".

Machado Expected to Be Traded to Dodgers
There's no official confirmation that the Phillies have landed Machado, but all signs are pointing in that direction. I mean, I don't know if I'm going to get a call or not, but I'm just trying to enjoy this last off day.

"Even in talking with you now, I am afraid to say something positive about the American president", he said, "because when American journalists or policymakers read my interview, they'll say Russian Federation is again meddling and helping Donald Trump".

"The president's going to meet with his team, and we'll let you know when we have an announcement on that", she said, adding that neither Trump nor anyone else in the administration had committed to accepting the offer. "He understands it, and he's not happy about it". They never paid any taxes, neither in Russian Federation nor in the United States, and yet the money escaped the country.

In exchange, the Russian president offered to allow Special CounselRobert Mueller to observe interrogations of 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted by a US grand jury last week for hacking Democratic Party email accounts.

Mr Trump still maintained that his meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies went well and his summit with Mr Putin "even better". The president said he confronted the Russian leader privately, but disagrees with people who wanted him to start "screaming in his face" at the press conference. McFaul, who's at Stanford University, says he was amazed that Trump didn't push back. I want to focus on how we're going to ratchet down tensions.

That view has not changed in the wake of Putin's comments, several committee Republicans said.

Republican Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said congressional leaders were searching for the most effective response.

Trump shares 'very nice' letter from North Korea's Kim
The source with knowledge of the talks told CNN that Trump asked whether Kim knew where he'd gotten the nickname, and Kim said no. President Donald Trump made a tweet , which included a letter from Kim Jong Un , which claims "great progress" is being made.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California labeled the discussion "BATS-T CRAZY" and demanded Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to "put a stop to this notion immediately".

By dusk, hundreds of activists, led by attorney Michael Avenatti and actress Alyssa Milano, staged a protest near the White House, with chants of "traitor!" echoing along Pennsylvania Avenue. "The record shows it could have gone either way", Conaway said.

In a series of early morning Twitter posts, the Republican president said the summit would eventually produce "big results" and accused his critics of "Trump Derangement Syndrome".

It also named other former USA officials, including someone it described as a former intelligence officer, Russia's state-operated RIA news agency reported.

He also offered a twisted explanation of his assertion in Helsinki that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere, claiming he misspoke.

"In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't", he said.
