US senators push sanctions to send Putin election meddling warning

A former national security adviser to President Barack Obama said Donald Trump's "national security team needs to know everything" about the lengthy one-on-one meeting he had with Vladimir Putin, calling the meeting a "historic mistake" and saying it would have been for any US president.

"It can be proven beyond any evidentiary burden that Russian Federation is not our friend and they tried to attack us in 2016, so the president either needs to rely on the people that he has chosen to advise him, or those advisors need to reevaluate whether or not they can serve in this administration", Gowdy said.

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shake hands during a joint press conference in Helsinki, Finland.

Trump during the press conference said he didn't see any reason why "it would be" Russian Federation who hacked the 2016 presidential election, despite the intelligence community's unanimous conclusion that the Kremlin did conspire to influence the election in favor of the Republican Party.

"Some press coverage has mischaracterized my intentions in responding to breaking news presented to me during a live interview", Coats stated in a statement on Saturday, admitting that while his reaction was indeed "awkward", it "in no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the President".

The findings indicate that while Trump was judged critically for his summit performance, the event has not at this time proved to be a significant turning point in his presidency, despite the sharp criticism he received in the hours and days after the meeting and the multiple efforts by White House officials and the president to clarify his remarks in Helsinki. I have President Putin - he just said it's not Russian Federation.

The president was asked what he said to Putin, and he replied that he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling".

Rice alleged that Trump has taken decisions that have served Russian interests as opposed to United States interests. "He made it crystal clear what would happen and the minute we were past election day so we didn't wind up in a situation", Kerry said. Those who strongly approved numbered 18%. "Here's what we will never know, we will never know whether or not the Federal Bureau of Investigation had enough without the [Steele] dossier, the DNC-funded dossier because they included it and everyone who reads this FISA application sees the amount of reliance they placed on this product funded by Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC".

In Washington, D.C., the bipartisan response to Trump's handling of the Putin summit was fiercely critical.

Under pressure from Congress, which previous year passed a tough sanctions law targeting Russia, the U.S. Treasury in April imposed sanctions on Russian officials and oligarchs for election meddling and "malign" activities.

"He's changed his mind four times this week", Graham said.

Rice said she had no objection to engaging with Russian Federation, including talking with Putin. Such invitations should be reserved for USA allies such as the U.K., Australia and Canada "who are with us day in and day out", he said. But younger and older Americans tended to offer similar assessments to other questions.
