Lavrov tells Pompeo: free Russian woman accused in US of espionage

Lavrov tells Pompeo: free Russian woman accused in US of espionage

Asked at the summit if he believed the US intelligence community's conclusion that Moscow interfered with the vote, Trump said: "I don't see any reason why it would be [Russia]... but I have confidence in both parties". (They told him afterwards that any journalist would have asked the same question at that point in the press conference.) Over the next few days, Trump then attempted a stunningly bad walk back, called the media the "real enemy" of the American people, and came up with some creative ways to double down and deliberately extend the whole mess.

Trump and Putin just sat down in Finland for a more than 2-hour meeting in which election meddling took center stage. "Sort of a double negative".

Tensions between Russian Federation and the U.S. have gone into overdrive in recent years. He restated the USA intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and Moscow's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

But Trump made some adjustments to the written statement he read aloud, adding that the meddlers "could be other people also".

"Trump also drew some criticism on Wednesday after he appeared to say that he didn't believe Russian Federation was still targeting the U.S", Thomsen added.

Last week, a total of 12 members of the Russian intelligence service were indicted in the investigation into American election hacking for a "sustained effort" to access information. I think he knows that, though. Trump said. The idea landed with a thud among officials back in the US.

Standing alongside Mr Putin, Mr Trump said he did not see any reason why it "would" be Russian Federation that meddled in the USA presidential election.

The new launch trailer appears to be aimed at adult players (which is understandable, considering how expensive a VR setup is). This virtual reality game brings Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Doctor Strange, and many more to Oculus VR headsets.

With Democrats and other critics on the left recently bombarding the news with condemnation of the president for being too soft or friendly with the Russians, Trump provided some material for Clinton and journalists to explain while they take a timeout from bashing his interaction with the former Soviet Union.

The problem is that President Trump's controversial stance on Russian Federation comes down to more than just a few letters.

More often, however, Trump goes outside the building when seeking advice, this former staffer said.

The reporter asked again, and Trump said "no" again.

Trump's anger over having to answer Lemire's question - not his failure in attempting to do so - lingered on. "I actually think we'll have a good relationship".

Sanders later said his comment was misinterpreted. Trump later backtracked and said he did accept the conclusion of the agencies, and he said he misspoke when he said he didn't see any reason it "would" be Russian Federation, saying he meant to say "wouldn't".

Cecilia Vega, the ABC News reporter who asked the question, said on Twitter that she believes the president heard her clearly and that Trump was looking directly at her when he spoke. Told that Sanders had since clarified, she responded: "There's a walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back?" Trump was initially warm to the proposal, proposed by Vladimir Putin, calling it "an incredible offer".
