Poll finds warmer feelings for America in Russian Federation after Putin-Trump summit

"We also know the Russians tried to hack into and steal information from candidates and government officials alike", Mr Coats said.

There have always been allegations that the Russian government intervened in the 2016 US Presidential Election to help Trump.

Manafort served as Trump's campaign chief from May to August 2016 and the president asked Wednesday: "why didn't government tell me that he was under investigation". "It's the president's opinion", Sanders said. "And we're throwing everything at it".

White House officials have argued for a year that the media spend too much time on their Russian Federation obsession while short-changing such developments as a European Union trade deal and 4.1 percent growth in the GDP. When Donald Trump walks into a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit Wednesday, July 11, 2018, worldwide politics are bound to become intensely personal _ again. "If you want to put an economic sanction on Russian Federation, that's the most powerful thing we could do because they are so dependent on the price of energy ... for their foreign currency". "This president said, 'We will give you the tools to defend yourself'".

Trump has voiced skepticism about Russia's role in USA election meddling, drawing accusations from Democrats and Republicans alike that he is ignoring a threat to American democracy.

"Russia is going to continue to do this".

And a second, private search by USA company Ocean Infinity that finished at the end of May also found no sign of the wreckage. They examined Shah's flight simulator at home but found "no unusual activities other than game-related flight simulations".

The White House pushed back Wednesday on the notion that President Donald Trump obstructed justice with a morning tweet saying Attorney General Jeff Sessions should "stop" the Justice Department's Russian Federation election meddling probe "right now".

Both Mr Coats and Trump's national security advisor John Bolton controversially claimed the Trump administration is taking decisive action to combat Russian interference. "So we're talking counter-intelligence, cyber, criminal and even counter-terrorism, created to root out and respond to foreign influence operations", he said.

"We acknowledge the threat, it is real, it is continuing, and we're doing everything we can to have a legitimate election", Coats said, adding: "It is pervasive, it is ongoing, with the intent to. drive a wedge and undermine our democratic values". "But I got along great with Putin", Trump said. They just want to break down the foundations of democracy, break down trust in our electoral process.

No. 3 Senate GOP leader John Thune of South Dakota said, "The idea that they should truncate it doesn't make sense to me".

Wray also provided a fresh look at how Russian Federation and other countries go after the United States' integrity, saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation has uncovered foreign influence operations that include "targeting US officials and other USA persons through traditional intelligence tradecraft, criminal efforts to suppress voting and provide illegal campaign financing, cyber attacks against voting infrastructure along with computer intrusions targeting elected officials and others", as well as "both overtly and covertly manipulating news stories, spreading disinformation, leveraging economic resources and escalating divisive issues".
