Adam Schiff: Helsinki Talks 'Productive...For Vladimir Putin'

Barletta attacked Democrats - who had criticized Trump's suggestion at the Helsinki summit that he believes Putin's denial of interfering in the 2016 elections - and, echoing the White House, Barletta stressed the potential for U.S. -Russia cooperation in world affairs.

Clinton described the Russian leader as a "very aggressive guy", and said she believes he "wants to dominate his neighborhood again".

"There's no ignoring the fact that for whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised".

Before his Aspen Security Forum appearance, Coats was already portrayed as a voice of dissent in the Trump administration by the mainstream media for seemingly standing up to Trump in the wake of the Helsinki summit, which Trump's opponents dubbed "disastrous" and "nothing short of treason". I would have liked, Bret, for him to do what Chris Wallace, your colleague, did in his interview with President Putin.

"I thought it was a very disturbing performance with Vladimir Putin", Toomey said on a telephone town-hall he held with Pennsylvania residents Wednesday. "I think it's important to continue them".

And in his responses to questions, he offered a quid pro quo between USA investigators gaining access to Russian military intelligence officers indicted for interference in the 2016 United States election and Russia gaining access to businessman and anti-corruption campaigner Bill Browder.

Contrasting Putin's background as a former KGB agent who uses "penny-ante spy tactics" with Trump's as a former businessman, Bossert said, "We spend our time trying to have productive meetings with foreign leaders". Yet even as Bossert called the talks "productive", he pushed back at Russia's emerging narrative that the two leaders had privately made agreements that would run counter to previously stated US policy.

Trump clarified Tuesday that he has "full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies" and has pledged to "repel" any future Russian efforts to interference in USA elections.

President Donald Trump on Sunday said he had a "great" meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, alleging that the mainstream U.S. media is trying and disparage the Helsinki summit.

Tweeting from his golf course in New Jersey, Mr Trump reinforced his meeting with Putin went well despite previous contradicting statements.

In addition to his pointed remarks about Russia, Rubio also anticipated that there could be further sanctions from the US on Nicaragua, given recent violence in the Latin American nation.

Trump fielded bipartisan backlash following remarks he made during the press conference alongside Putin in Helsinki, Finland, prompting the president and his officials to issue several corrections throughout the week. I don't mind him dealing with Russian Federation, I just want to deal with Russian Federation from a position of strength. This much is true: Donald Trump has made it plain often enough that he wishes to improve relations with Russian Federation and to disregard all of the many points of contention between the two countries, not limited to Russia's role in his being elected president.

In a 2013 letter, Page had described himself as an "informal adviser' to the Kremlin but now said "it's really spin" to call him an adviser".

"(Putin) is not interested in better relations with the United States", Republican Sen.
