Congressman Adam Schiff: Trump Is Acting Like He's Compromised By Russia

Congressman Adam Schiff: Trump Is Acting Like He's Compromised By Russia

Cecilia Vega, the ABC News reporter who asked the question, said on Twitter that she believes the president heard her clearly and that Trump was looking directly at her when he spoke.

On Thursday, the White House issued a statement saying Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer.

Trump's public doubting of Russia's culpability for interference in 2016 - though he tried to "clarify" his remarks a day later - sparked bipartisan condemnation in Washington and sparked congressional lawmakers to look once again for ways to tighten sanctions on the longtime USA foe.

Gowdy didn't answer directly, but said Trump had access to more evidence than anyone and specifically mentioned Trump's access to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, all of whom Trump nominated for those roles.

The statement yesterday from Coats, more than 48 hours after the initial interview, capped a week of public walk backs by the Trump administration relating to Russian Federation. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who defended Trump, every Republican lawmaker either criticized the president for his actions or sidestepped the president while affirming that Russian Federation is an adversary. Sen. Trump appeared to answer "no" to a reporter's question asking whether Russian Federation was still targeting the U.S. While hours later, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders emerged to say Trump had merely tried to put a stop to the questioning by saying "no", although he continued discussing Russian Federation after that.

Since the summit, the White House has been engulfed in crisis after crisis as Trump dug himself into a deeper hole vis-a-vis Russian Federation even after arriving back in the US.

One golfer has ever accomplished that in the modern era, and he's now four back of Spieth at this event. This is what he does. "They call it Carnasty for a reason", Kisner told Golf Channel's Steve Sands .

After he left Helsinki, Trump reportedly grew frustrated with the negative media coverage of what he thought was a successful summit, complaining to aides there was not enough focus on the responsibility the Democratic National Committee had in the hacking of its servers.

He also said he was did not know what happened in the one-on-one talks between the two leaders in Finland. "We have been holding consultations with the U.S. regarding our concerns, they are closed-door consultations", he said. "The Kremlin intelligence agents know exactly what took place in that meeting". The White House had to come out and issue another clarification, insisting it would not be happening.

A short time later, the White House made another announcement revealing that President Putin had been invited to visit Washington in the autumn. 'OK, that's going to be special'.

It has been one of the most controversial weeks of Donald Trump's presidency but has it damaged his popularity?

According to recent polls, a high percentage of Americans were unhappy with the Russian Federation summit but among Republican voters, the majority were pleased with how the meeting went.

So right now it looks like a controversy blamed on an apostrophe won't be putting a full stop to President Trump's re-election hopes.
