Trump approved decision to announce Russian indictments before Putin meeting

  • Donald Trump has the perfect excuse to insist he did not kowtow to Putin Bad grammar

Mark Warner on Tuesday criticized President Donald Trump 's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling it "an embarrassment" to the Untied States.

And so he spoke briefly to reporters before a meeting on the Hill, and focused on his inflammatory comment suggesting he trusted Putin's word over us intelligence agencies when it came to Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections.

Moments earlier, the president had told reporters he accepted Putin's denials about meddling in the 2016 election even though his Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, said otherwise.

"Frankly, I don't think those USA presidents at any point came off as not pursuing US security interests, as being taken in by the Soviet leader they were meeting with", said Alina Polyakova, a foreign policy fellow at the Brookings Institution. After his press conference with Putin, Trump tweeted that he has "GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people", but it did little to stem criticism of his performance.

Speaking from a meeting with Republican lawmakers at the White House, Trump said he had "full faith" in USA intelligence agencies, and wanted to clarify his statements from the day before. Then he added, "It could be other people also". And Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., declared, "A single, ominous question now hangs over the White House". "President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin". And while serving as Obama's secretary of state, Hillary Clinton humiliated herself when she gave Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov a giant red button with the word "reset" on it (which, adding insult to injury, misspelled the Russian word for "reset" to read "overload").

But the investigation is progressing, as evidenced by the indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence agents on Friday - timing that was embarrassing ahead of the summit with Putin.

But he said things could still change as a result of the fallout from the ongoing Russian Federation investigation and the Trump Administration's unpopular stances on some key voting issues.

Following Russian news reports that the Kremlin was requesting interrogations of a number of U.S. officials, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul confirmed in a posting on Twitter that he was one of those targeted.

That trip takes place in three weeks, a spokesman for Paul said Tuesday.

By Tuesday afternoon when he faced the cameras, Trump had changed tack. This week, Paul announced in an op-ed in Politico that he would soon be making a trip to Russian Federation to "discuss common ground with their leaders" - and would be consulting with the president before going.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of DE said he is in conversation with Flake and a number of other senators about taking action in response to Trump's comments Monday.
