Trump extends invitation to Putin for fall meeting in Washington

The top United States intelligence official has revealed that, three days after President Donald Trump met privately with Russian leader Vladimir Putin for more than two hours, he does not know what the two men discussed or agreed.

Yet White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that that was "something that would go through the State Department".

"The government is speculating that someone is a Russian spy, but thousands of Russians met intelligence operatives" in the United States, he said.

Mr Trump contradicted USA intelligence agencies earlier this week when he backed away from blaming Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 election, provoking condemnation.

Lemon then said this: "When I read this, I know it sounds odd, it reminded me the scene from "Mommy Dearest" where she beats her daughter because she said her daughter, she said 'you deliberately embarrass me in front of a reporter.' Not the wire hangers... she like chokes her in the living room in front of the reporter".

"Now with that being said if it doesn't work out I'll be the worst enemy he's ever had", he said of Putin.

White House officials didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who issued the indictments against the 12 Russians last week, said on Thursday that the US would seek to warn the public in the future when it believes foreign states are trying to influence elections. On Wednesday, Trump answered "no" to a reporter's question on whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, only to have Sanders say later he was saying "no" to answering any questions - not to the question itself.

According to a White House transcript, he said: "I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be".

Trump also again described the Helsinki summit as a "great success." Russian Federation said at the time that it "respects" the votes, which showed as much as 96 percent support for breaking away from Ukraine.

"I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as now constituted", Trump said. "We just have to find a way to get it going", said Rubio, who predicted the measure could get a veto-proof 85 votes in the Senate.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has spent the week mounting a fierce defense of Trump's outreach to Putin, objected to a proposal from Sen.

Trump has had a tense relationship with USA intelligence agencies since before he was elected - largely due to their conclusion that Putin ordered "an influence campaign" in 2016 aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The scale of the bipartisan outcry at Trump's stance toward Putin has only been rivaled by his 2017 waffling over condemning white supremacist demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"But look at the sanctions I have put on", Trump said to Kernen. The U.S. and Russia have been on opposing sides of the conflict in Ukraine, unleashed after a popular uprising against a pro-Russian president and Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014. "The American people should rest assured", Pompeo said.

Coats said US intelligence on North Korea was significantly better than it used to be, but that the USA should not assume it will happen and that "trust and verify" should be America's mantra.

"And so, make no mistake about it, we are very clear with our adversaries, when it's in our best interest, to share with them what we're doing", he said.
