Trump Putin: Democrats call for interpreter to testify

Trump Putin: Democrats call for interpreter to testify

"Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can't concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome".

Trump was roundly criticised by Democrats and Republicans in Washington for siding with the Kremlin over the judgments of U.S. intelligence on whether Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election. Even Trump's attempt to walk back some of the comments did little to quell the uproar, and as The Hill noted, the incident is also raising the stakes that Trump could face impeachment. But on Wednesday he struck a more defiant tone, insisting that no other president has ever been tougher on Moscow.

Trump has weathered heavy criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike for his performance at the meeting, where he publicly sided with Putin over U.S. intelligence agencies' assessment that the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

"No", he responded, looking directly at the reporter.

"My thoughts were that I needed to correct the record for that", Coats said Thursday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.

Sanders also suggested the White House was considering allowing the Russian government to interrogate former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

"The warning signs are there".

People Injured After 'Lava Bomb' Hits Roof of Hawaii Tour Boat
The Coast Guard now prohibits all vessels from getting closer than 984 feet from where Kilauea volcano's lava oozes into the sea. A gaping hole could be seen in the boat's roof after it returned to Wailoa Harbor, the Hawaii County fire department said.

"I just felt at this point in time that what we had assessed and reassessed and reassessed, and carefully gone over, still stands", Coats said.

That was seen as naive and insulting by Putin's critics, who say he displays contempt for democracy.

At Monday's news conference, Putin described the proposal when he was asked about the possible extradition of 12 Russian intelligence officers indicted in the United States on charges of meddling in the 2016 election by carrying out cyber attacks on Democratic Party networks.

By Tuesday, after congressional blowback and criticism from outside advisors, Trump reversed himself and said he meant to say that he didn't see any reason why Russian Federation wouldn't - as opposed to would - intervene in the elections. A lot of people out there.

Earlier Mr Trump rejected a proposal by Mr Putin that Russian Federation be allowed to question USA citizens. "I hope that the president has learned something".

Gaffney is often accredited with helping lay the rhetorical groundwork for Trump's travel ban-a poll from the Center for Security Policy was cited by the president's 2016 campaign website to prevent "Muslim immigration". "He understands it and he's not happy about it and he shouldn't be happy about it because there's never been a President as tough on Russian Federation as I have been". "You put in a home security system", Swalwell said on CNN's "The Situation Room".
