Donald Trump claims he warned Vladimir Putin against election meddling

Donald Trump says Russia has stopped meddling despite US intelligence suggesting otherwise

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

'I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, ' he wrote.

The news broke amid ongoing fallout from Trump's recent meeting with the Russian leader in Helsinki, Finland, where Trump sided with Putin over the judgment of his own intelligence services as to whether or not Russia tried to subvert the 2016 election. Just to refresh your memory: On Tuesday, the President of the United States hung out for about two hours with the President of Russian Federation, and made "verbal agreements" on a number of issues of which neither Coats or the Pentagon seems to have been given any guidance on.

"Say that again", United States national intelligence director Dan Coats responded, when informed of the invitation during an appearance at a security conference in Colorado.

As he spoke, news was breaking out of Washington that Putin had been invited to the White House this fall.

"It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it", Sanders said on Thursday, a day after saying the proposal was going to be discussed by Trump's team.

Former defence secretary William Perry said the fanfare around these new weapons on the part of the Russian government was mainly for President Putin to contribute to his image both at home and on the world stage.

Unlike many of his colleagues who chose to issue tepid statements protesting the appeasement of Russian Federation without mentioning Trump by name, Hurd writes that as a congressman, "I believe that lawmakers must fulfill our oversight duty as well as keep the American people informed of the current danger". "The system is blinking". If that meeting takes place in Washington, I think it is all to the good. "We'd rather not know".it was very clear that anything that might tarnish the NRA, they didn't want to hear". "Covert propaganda and disinformation are the primary weapons".


Robert Mueller, US special counsel, had alleged that 12 Russian nationals were involved in interference in the 2016 US presidential election, and had a sophisticated plot to wage "information warfare" on the United States by carrying out cyber attacks on Democratic Party networks.

He defended the decision to charge foreign nationals who are unlikely to be deported to the US. "The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn't see before".

In a later briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted that Trump's "no" actually meant he was not taking any more questions from reporters.

The Russian claims against the Americans, including former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, involve allegations of fraud and corruption.

The Kremlin has the final say, but hasn't responded yet to the proposal Trump made Thursday.

Trump's administration has sought to control the damage from Monday's summit in Helsinki, where the president astonished the world and drew sharp criticism at home by siding with Putin over US intelligence agencies on Moscow's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump initially had described the idea as an "incredible offer". He previously worked in the Canberra press gallery and recently finished a Masters of Journalism at Columbia University in NY.
