The Day After Trump Admits to Attempted Collusion, Rand Paul Invites Russian Delegation to Washington

"We have agreed and we have invited members of the foreign relations committee of Russian Federation to come to the United States to meet with us in Washington".

The Kentucky senator also announced that members of Russia's Foreign Relations Committee have agreed to visit Washington, D.C. where meetings are expected to continue. Don Huffines, Sen. Rand Paul and his communications director Sergio Gor attend a meeting with Russian lawmakers in Moscow, Russia, Monday, Aug. 6, 2018.

The "main aim of the trip" was to "create a dialogue" and "improve relations" between Moscow and Washington, Paul added.

The senator, once a foe of the president, has emerged as a unique and somewhat renegade voice, coming as both Republicans and Democrats criticize Trump for not taking a tougher stance against Russian Federation.

Paul is a key supporter of Trump's controversial interactions with Putin, heralding the leaders' Helsinki summit last month as exactly the sort of action Washington should be taking to mend ties between the two. "I invited the Russian Federation to send a delegation to the Capitol, and they have agreed to take this important next step", Paul said.

But it is clear Kim is still not sold, saying: 'Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn't flow, so I call her Chi. Kim recently defended her sister Kendall Jenner after an unknown writer slammed her using various insults.

He said he saw the current trip by United States senators to Moscow as "especially valuable when other American politicians are making efforts to portray any contact with Russian politicians as toxic".

Kosachev said that the meeting could happen as early as this fall. "Senator Rand Paul is visiting Russian Federation as part of a private group, " said a representative of the US Embassy in Moscow.

"There was no meddling in 2016".

It added that "special attention was given to the possibility of developing inter-parliamentary contacts".

The senator announced his planned trip just hours after President Trump concluded a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where Trump cast doubt on the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. They also met with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
