Meeting With Putin "Even Better" Than With NATO, Says Trump

"President Putin just said he had no idea Donald Trump was in Moscow in 2013", Goldstone writes on Twitter. "I think that the United States has been foolish".

"I have felt very strongly that while Russia's actions had no impact at all on the outcome of the election, let me be totally clear in saying that - and I've said this many times - I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", he said.

"President Trump ultimately validated Putin at the expense of American intelligence by giving credence to Putin's claim", she tweeted. "I have President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation".

Eighteen months ago, the US intelligence community - Coats' office, the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency - issued a report that said the Russian government attempted to sway the vote in Trump's favor, and that Putin had likely approved the efforts.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky says it's important for the U.S.to keep an open dialogue with its adversaries, especially if it hopes to motivate them to change their behavior. "I don't see any reason why it would be".

Although Van Avermaet retains yellow for now, it was in truth a dismal day for BMC. Groenewegen told reporters after the stage: "I hope there's more".


Trump said the summit with Putin still "was our most successful visit" on his European trip.

"For the president of the United States to side with President Putin against American law enforcement, American defense officials, and American intelligence agencies is thoughtless, dangerous, and weak".

Reading from a prepared statement, he said he meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation.

"Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this risky behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump".

Putin proposed that same plan after they met at a Group of Seven summit in Germany a year ago. And he said Trump and Putin "seemed to be speaking from the same script" as Trump made a "conscious choice to defend a tyrant".

The Cavs soon shipped him to the Lakers, where he played 17 games before getting arthroscopic surgery on his right hip in April. Wade and Thomas were both with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a short time last season before being traded.


The Wisconsin Republican says the American intelligence community and the House Intelligence Committee agree that Russian Federation interfered in the election.

"Our nation must never tolerate a Russian autocrat that seeks to interfere in our elections". USA intelligence agencies have concluded Russian Federation did interfere, but the Kremlin has denied state involvement.

That's sparked controversy around the world, including in Trump's own Republican Party.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wouldn't critique Trump's appearance with Putin.

Putin noted that Russia would expect the U.S.to return the favor and cooperate in the Russian probe against William Browder, a British investor charged in financial crimes in Russia.
