Putin: Top US spy retracts 'awkward response'

The top US intelligence official said on Saturday that he meant no disrespect to President Donald Trump in an interview discussing the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I certainly think he's acting like someone who is compromised", Schiff said on ABC News' "This Week".

In a series of combative Twitter posts Sunday, Trump declared that last Monday's summit with Putin, and their side-by-side news conference that drew bipartisan negative reviews, had been "GREAT".

There was a significant danger that left to his own devices, he might have been persuaded by President Putin to do the same in the Baltic states and Poland, which would have provoked an immediate crisis between the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. "I think he walked away from that a long time ago". "The rhetoric can undermine policy and influence policy, but I don't think we've reached that point here with this".

He said that Republicans also didn't want to investigate whether Moscow was funneling money through the National Rifle Association, a group that alleged Russian agent Maria Butina got cozy with in advance of the 2016 election. Putin in exchange wanted Russian interviews with the former USA ambassador to Russia and other Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed later in the day that Trump was saying "no" to answering additional questions.

Trump infamously said last week during a joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki that he was partial to Putin's denials.

"It's an easy cheap shot to say the president's been compromised by the Russians", Bossert told ABC. "Time for the rest of the world, including the President of the United States, to understand Putins tactics & reject them".




Mr. Coats has been under scrutiny since he said he wished Mr. Trump had not met one-on-one with Mr. Putin and expressed dismay that he had publicly undermined US intelligence agencies.

In addition to his pointed remarks about Russia, Rubio also anticipated that there could be further sanctions from the US on Nicaragua, given recent violence in the Latin American nation.

Trump and Coats appeared to be at odds in the aftermath of the President's meeting with Putin at the beginning of the week.

Barletta also has said he expects Trump will campaign for him in Pennsylvania and marshal "a lot" of money from donors to help him.

Clinton spoke at New York's OZY Fest on Saturday and addressed Republican President Donald Trump's encounter with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, amid special counsel Robert Mueller's warning that Russian intelligence services have active "interference operations" in USA politics. "Why would we tolerate that of Russian Federation?" On both questions, those who say they "strongly disapprove" of Trump's performance outnumber those who say they "strongly approve" by better than 2 to 1.

While Spicer is correct that most Republican voters across the country approve of Trumps handling of the summit in Finland with Putin, recent polling shows that half of Americans do not.

In a 2013 letter, Page had described himself as an "informal adviser' to the Kremlin but now said "it's really spin" to call him an adviser. There is a direct national security interest for the United States in seeing democracy and stability in Nicaragua".
