White House Says 'Threat' From Russia Still Exists

Republicans mull curbing Trump after Putin summit

It also suggested other steps, including boosting the integrity of U.S. election systems and protecting them from further Russian meddling, and calling on Trump to demand the extradition of 12 Russians indicted last week for election interference.

As for his meeting with Putin on July 16, Trump said the U.S. The one-on-one meeting between Putin and Trump lasted more than two hours, later delegation members joined the presidents for a working lunch.

Nauert said a USA court has already rejected Russia's charges against Browder and Russian authorities already know the US position on the matter. "But he does believe that they would target, certainly, USA elections again", Sanders said. "I would, because he's in charge of the country".

"I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russia", Trump said on Monday.

"Very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that", Trump told CBS. But Trump also appeared to question whether such statements would have an impact on Russian Federation. "We continue to urge Russian authorities to work with the U.S. Department of Justice to pursue those in Russia who in fact perpetrated the fraudulent scheme that Russia refers to that targeted not only Mr. Browder, but also his company and. the Russian people as a whole".

Sanders explanation of Trump's "No" was the second time since Monday's summit that Trump and the White House have blamed a misstatement or misunderstanding for the furore over Russian Federation.

McFaul, who served as ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama, has been cited by Russian media as a "person of interest" in an ongoing investigation into Browder.

The interview came at the end of two days of shifting statements on whether Trump agreed with the findings of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election that sent him to the White House.

Putin has denied the allegations. He's been doing a very good job. But in return, Putin said he would expect the United States to allow Russian investigators to question what he called fugitives on American soil.

Trump discussed some of these things directly, face-to-face with Putin, she said. "I don't want to get into whether or not he's lying". They would rather go to war than see this.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump wrote that Russian Federation has agreed to help in delicate negotiations with North Korea.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told a congressional committee in February he already had seen evidence Russian Federation was targeting November's elections when Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate is at stake.

That assertion would contradict the assessment of U.S. intelligence chief Dan Coats, who said on Monday that Russian Federation was involved in "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy". Browder has said he helped expose corruption in Russian Federation.

"We won't be able, as a nation, to fight back against foreign interference in our elections if the Commander in Chief doesn't even acknowledge that it's a real problem", Schumer said in a statement.

"The sentence should have been, "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't, or why it wouldn't be Russia" instead of "why it would", Trump said Tuesday of the comments he had made in Helsinki. They said I insulted people. Trump replied, "Thank you very much. No".

Montenegro joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation previous year in defiance of Moscow after accusing Russian spies of orchestrating an attempted coup to derail the accession.

That didn't explain why Trump, who had tweeted a half-dozen times and sat for two television interviews since the Putin news conference, waited so long to correct his remarks.

At the outset of the gathering, Trump upbraided allies for not living up to an agreement on how much they should pay for defense.

It also named other former U.S. officials, including someone it described as a former intelligence officer, Russia's state-operated RIA news agency reported.
