'Cheap Shot' Trump Criticisms Meant to 'Undermine' Him, Bossert Says

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee blasted Trump suggesting he “acts like he’s compromised.” Rep. Adam Schiff D-Calif. was responding to Trump’s apparent acceptance during a news conference last week of Putin’s denial that

In comments on ABC News' "This Week", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., declared "the talks in Helsinki were productive... for Vladimir Putin", and lashed out at Trump, in his joint news conference with Putin, for siding "with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies".

Shortly after Trump "misspoke" during a post-summit press conference, saying that he doesn't see "any reason why it would be" Russia that meddled in the United States presidential election, Coats issued a statement, pointing out that the intelligence community has "been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

On Thursday, the White House announced the two leaders would meet again in the fall in Washington, around the time of the congressional midterm elections the USA intelligence community says Russian Federation is trying to meddle in.

Speaking to Howard Kurtz on Fox News' "Media Buzz" on Sunday, Spicer said that Trump had admitted to fumbling his words when he appeared to side with Putin and cast doubts on US intelligence conclusions about Russian meddling, but added that Trump in the past had spoken very clearly about Russian hacking.

Gowdy, who has spearheaded an effort among House Republicans to discredit elements of the Mueller probe, said heavily redacted documents released late Saturday by the Justice Department - which described the FBI's suspicions and evidence that former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page might have been collaborating with Moscow - demonstrated government overreach and bad faith.

"There are things to discuss with the Russians, but we should have come into that meeting very well-prepared, pressing our grave concern about Russian interference in our elections", she said. Numerous Trump administration officials say it is not a "witch hunt". "That is separate from the question of whether or not we should be clear-eyed about who Putin is", Rubio said.

Gowdy said Trump needs to rely on his closest advisers - like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley - or the advisers "need to re-evaluate whether or not they can serve in this administration".

Turkey accuses Israel of 'apartheid' over 'Jewish nation-state' law
Speaking ahead of the vote, Herzog warned that while fostering the Jewish state, the law might deal a blow to democratic values. The law further rescinds Arabic as an official language, downgrading it to a "special status ".

Forty-eight percent of Russians surveyed two days after Putin sat down with Trump at the summit said they expected U.S. -Russia relations to stay the same, while 38 percent said they were optimistic about an improved relationship.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also said Trump had not done enough to stand up to Putin, and warned that such acquiescence would invite stepped-up Russian aggression. 'OK, that's going to be special'.

I have President Putin.

Thursday marked the third day of Mr Trump trying to manage the political fallout from his widely criticised performance at the summit meeting with Mr Putin in Finland. I would have liked, Bret, for him to do what Chris Wallace, your colleague, did in his interview with President Putin.

But the Republican senator also stressed he has not seen a reason yet to believe Trump or his campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

After a week that arguably illustrates Trump's inability to handle reality better than any other during his fantastical presidency, he should be careful who he calls "crazy". The leaders of the two countries spoke more than 4 hours.

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".
