Pompeo: Putin-Trump meeting "will put America in better place"

The Trump International Golf Links Course Opens

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the indictments are "further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win".

In a Monday tweet sent as he is flying back to the USA aboard Air Force One, Trump says, "As I said today and many times before, 'I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people'".

In the article, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said Trump's "rhetoric toward Russian Federation and Putin has always been [a] concern".

"I think it's very important that they meet", Pompeo told reporters about his return from Mexico on Friday night. The Russians hit more than 300 people connected to the Clinton campaign and Democratic political groups.

Obama, however, personally warned Putin against messing with the election, imposed sanctions on Russian individuals and entities, kicked out 35 Russian diplomats and closed two of the Kremlin's compounds in the US. They are accused of releasing the stolen emails on the web.

Mueller did not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking effort, that Americans were knowingly in touch with Russian intelligence officers or that any vote tallies were altered by hacking.

In a statement, the White House highlighted Rosenstein s remarks that no Americans had been charged. There's no reason he could not accept the verdicts of the House Intelligence Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, the Intelligence Community, and, yes, Mueller, that Russian Federation tried to interfere in the election. Already, Trump has fielded questions about whether he will raise the matter of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, saying he expects Putin will continue to deny any involvement. The Kremlin denies that the Russian state has interfered in the USA elections.

Hunt backs Trump's call for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to increase spending
His meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland next week is generating widespread concern. Just eight countries are forecast to reach the two per cent goal this year, and 15 by 2024.

The attempt to penetrate Clinton's campaign began March 10, 2016, and hit a significant success on March 19 when the Russian intelligence officers busted open the email account of John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chairman, an AP investigation previous year found. Rosenstein said he briefed the president earlier in the week and he is aware of the indictments.

Was Russia listening, after all? Private speeches she gave to financial industry firms were particularly damaging within the left wing of the Democratic party and among independents frustrated with the influence of Wall Street in politics.

The indictment also alleges the person behind Guccifer 2.0 provided documents to a U.S. congressional candidate about his opponent.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that, after the indictments, Trump "can put this on the table and say, this is a serious matter that we need to talk about". "I hadn't thought of that, but certainly I'll be asking about it". "The person responded, "(p) retty standard". The messages were leaked via made up accounts that included "DCLeaks" and "Guccifer 2.0" as listed in the indictment.

Stone said he would like to see the alleged hackers stand trial.

Trump met with Putin for three hours Monday before participating in a joint press conference in which Trump did not contest the Russian leader's election meddling denials.
