Andy Harris praises Trump's Russian Federation summit, bashes press

Andy Harris praises Trump's Russian Federation summit, bashes press

"For the last ten years, I've been trying to avoid getting killed by Putin's regime", said Browder, who has been called "Putin's nemesis" for successfully pushing for so-called Magnitsky laws in a number of Western countries that authorize sanctions against human rights abusers in Russian Federation and other countries.

"Frankly, I don't think those USA presidents at any point came off as not pursuing US security interests, as being taken in by the Soviet leader they were meeting with", said Alina Polyakova, a foreign policy fellow at the Brookings Institution. "2016 was a testing ground and they will try in the future the outcome of any number of elections around the world which they see as crucial for their national interest", Tchantouridze said.

"It's the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected - immediately."

"My people came to me - [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me and some others - they said they think it's Russian Federation". His summit with Putin was a moment that called for presidential strength. Or maybe the White House staff had left President Trump ill-prepared before his stunning remarks in Helsinki on Monday, when he sided with Russian Federation over his own intelligence agencies. The Nation had credentials for the press conference.

Standing side-by-side on stage with the man accused of complicity in an attack on the very bedrock of American democracy, Trump said his intelligence people "think it's Russian Federation". He says the Senate understands the "Russia threat" and that is the "widespread view here in the United States Senate among members of both parties". He also appeared to side with Putin, who - according to Trump - gave a "powerful" denial that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 United States presidential election.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of DE said he is in conversation with Flake and a number of other senators about taking action in response to Trump's comments Monday. "We all saw it", the mayor said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign has increasingly put pressure on the White House.

Moments earlier, Mr McConnell felt the need to reassure America's allies in Europe with whom Mr Trump clashed during his frenzied trip last week.

Rick Wilson, a conservative who has always been critical of Mr Trump, says elected party members are horrified by his latest controversy.

But he says President Trump should not have confronted Putin on election interference, and the president also denied it entirely.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant", said McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

President Donald Trump tore into former CIA Director John Brennan as a "very bad person" after the former top spymaster accused him of treason and invoked impeachment.
