Schiff: Trump acts like someone 'compromised' by Putin

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said on Sunday that President Donald Trump's advisers should consider leaving the White House if Trump continues to publicly disparage the nation's intelligence community and cast doubt on the evidence that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the 2016 election. Trump appeared to accept what he called Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denials of Russian government election interference over the conclusions of every USA intelligence agency. "The Kremlin intelligence agents know exactly what took place in that meeting".

"I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed", he wrote. "I have a different view on this issue than the president and the White House", Rubio said.

"Well, it's an easy, cheap shot to say the president's been compromised by the Russians", Bossert said.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election, said "It's fair to say it was a broad and unfortunately successful attack on our electoral system".

Bossert insisted that Trump's private conversation with Putin in Helsinki was "productive", despite the mainstream media's predictable narrative and the Russian government's spin.

But, Barletta's campaign said, "our adversarial relationship should not derail efforts to find common ground through diplomacy on important issues like stabilizing Syria and denuclearization - just like our stalwart alliances with European nations should not handcuff United States policy from requesting trade fairness and full North Atlantic Treaty Organisation payments". "What his motivations are, I think is a legitimate question, one that I trust that the Special Council is investigating", former U.S. national security advisor, Susan Rice, told ABC News in an interview.

There is also uncertainty about the long-term fate of Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats after his dumbfounded on-camera reaction at a security forum in Aspen, Colorado, on Thursday to the breaking news about the invitation to Putin.

The match is being played with the Centre Court roof closed - the same conditions that the first three sets were played under. Djokovic increased his all-time lead over Nadal to 27-25 and took a 2-1 edge in five-set matches between the two.

Mr Coats has been under scrutiny since he said he wished Mr Trump had not met one-on-one with the Russian leader and expressed dismay that the president had publicly undermined United States intelligence agencies.

Mr Coats, who oversees the nation's 17 intelligence agencies, also said that if he had been asked, he would have advised Mr Trump against meeting Mr Putin alone, with just interpreters.

I guess his supporters say he may have done that behind the scenes. 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.

In turn, national security experts said, Putin played Trump like a fiddle.

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. "The Russians interfered in our elections". The timing of that announcement was "unfortunate", said the official who defended Coats.

Mr Trump accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats.
