Trump says he accepts DNI Coats' view that Russian Federation meddling continues

"The president will work with his team and we'll let you know if there is an announcement on that front", Sanders said. I was asking myself when are you going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie, ' but it wasn't just name calling from the former head of California. Sanders repeated that Trump was not answering the question posed in the Cabinet meeting earlier, and said Vega didn't understand his response because she asked a follow-up question. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Mr Trump said.

The interview came amid an ongoing outcry over Trump's meeting with Putin in Helsinki and the president's contradictory statements about whether he agrees with the conclusion of the USA intelligence community that Russian Federation interfered with the election.

Jackson continued by pointing out that this was the second time in three days that Trump or the White House has reversed what the president has said.

The news agency Associated Press (AP) quoted him as saying that he had a question "on Syria's nuclear policy" and the nuclear arsenals of the United States and Russian Federation. She said Trump was answering "no" to reporters' requests to ask questions - not to whether he believes Russian Federation is still targeting the United States. That again would undercut the assessment of his administration's own intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Trump also said he addressed the meddling with Putin in their one-on-one meeting, saying he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling".

"The president is wrong", Sen.

Trump retracted his comment on Tuesday, though he immediately undercut that, adding: "Could be other people also". 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?"

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", he said, reading the prepared text.

Putin raised the idea in his summit talks with President Donald Trump on Monday, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Not all Republicans were angry with Trump's conduct in Helsinki.

Since the election, there has been great suspicion over the relationship between Trump and President Putin. In April, the U.S. Treasury imposed sanctions on Russian officials and oligarchs in one of Washington's most aggressive moves to punish Moscow.

The muddied waters have deepened critics' concerns that Trump is not taking seriously enough threats to the USA electoral system.

Faced with outrage at home, Trump on Tuesday sought to end 27 hours of bipartisan recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error, saying he misspoke during his press conference with Putin.

Mr Schumer also urged the Senate to take up legislation to boost security for United States elections and to revive a measure passed earlier by the Judiciary Committee to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference.

However, senior U.S. military officials on Wednesday said they had no information about any such deals, the Washington Post reported.

"We're going to have a massive effort to try to get to what happened".

Earlier Wednesday, Mr. Trump sparked confusion about where he stands on whether Russian Federation is continuing to target the USA, given Coats' assessment that the threat to America's digital infrastructure is current.

I was clumsy in how I said it yesterday, because I didn't want to insult him.

Van Hollen said Trump "isn't willing to protect the integrity of our democracy in the United States, so Congress has to act".

Putin accused Browder of making campaign contributions to Trump's election rival Hillary Clinton with money he earned in Russian Federation on which he did not pay taxes. A similar vote Tuesday in the House failed on a party-line vote.

Some U.S. lawmakers have suggested passing resolutions voicing support for intelligence agencies, or spending more to enhance election security and prevent cyber attacks. "I have no confidence in a guy like Brennan - I think he's a total low-life".

His comments came the same day that the Justice Department unveiled an indictment against 12 Russian military intelligence officers for their role in hacking Democratic groups during the 2016 campaign.

Since then, the US President has backtracked on his comments. "There is no evidence of collusion but there is overwhelming evidence of meddling by the Russians".
