MA delegation blasts Trump meeting with Putin

Trump returns from summit with Putin to forceful criticism

Asked if he trusted USA intelligence agencies which concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, he said he had been told by his CIA chief that it was Russian Federation, but that he saw no reason to believe it.

On the evidence of their news conference in Helsinki, Trenin wrote on Twitter, Putin is "now vocally supporting his USA counterpart against his domestic foes". "Nor does he want to be our friend", Burr added.

In a strongly-worded statement, Mr Ryan said: "There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals". The meeting "was more notable for friendly atmospherics than for concrete accomplishments".

Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, tells CNN the talk picked up following Trump's Helsinki press conference.

Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert all kicked off their Monday broadcasts with criticism of Trump's trip to Finland, in which he took a private meeting with Putin to discuss Russian interference in the 2016 election, then proceeded to defend Russia in a press conference later that day.

When asked by CNBC Monday if he was concerned by the pattern of suspicious deaths in the United Kingdom which some say are proof Britain has become a killing ground for the state-sanctioned elimination of enemies of the Russian government, Browder said that he is taking precautions but that there is nothing he can really do to stop a "government-sponsored terrorist attack". "The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate".

"Only time will tell how the apparent good result of the summit will translate in tangible ways in the future", he said.

All true; no one has proved direct collusion by Trump or his campaign.

"Yes, I wanted him to win because he spoke of normalization of Russian-U.S. ties", Putin said. But honest observers note that we're armpit-deep in circumstantial evidence thereof.

In March, the Trump administration also approved $47 million United States worth of lethal arms to Ukraine so the country can defend itself against further Russian incursions - a move that the Obama administration held off on.

Moreover, Courtney said, the West is unlikely to provide the large-scale aid that Russian Federation seeks for the reconstruction of war-torn Syria unless Moscow extends more commitment to a political solution and to reducing Iran's role there.

Whether the USA has truly forsaken its interests depends on how much stake one puts in Trump's remarks.

AP's Jonathan Lemire and Reuters' Jeff Mason, the reporters who had asked Trump if he believed his own intel officers or Putin about Russian election meddling, and asked Putin if he had kompromat on Trump, raced around the morning landscape taking questions from dumbfounded on-air talent Ditto former Central Intelligence Agency director Brennan who had described Trump's performance as treasonous.

His performance was denounced as "treasonous" by a former Central Intelligence Agency chief and condemned as "shameful" by a Republican senator, although other Republicans were more cautious.

Asked directly if he believed Putin or his own intelligence community, which concluded that the Russians were behind the hacking and other interference, the president did not directly answer. "The president is putting himself over our country", Chuck Schumer, a Democratic veteran senator, tweeted. I thought we were doing horribly before today.

He disembarked his official jet before climbing into a newly commissioned Aurus Senat limousine and riding off in a motorcade similar to the one that accompanies president Trump.

"President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin", McCain said.
