Trump accepts intel on Russian Federation poll meddling

"Make no mistake, Russian Federation was successful, and as the director of national intelligence recently stated, they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy", said John Cohen, the former acting undersecretary for intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security and an ABC News contributor. "Thankfully. As the president taxes Americans with tariffs, he pushes away our allies and further strengthens Putin", he said.

Trump walked back his comments after top Republican congressional leaders implicitly criticized Trump's initial remarks in Finland.

"I also think that many U.S. presidents have made the mistake to think that they can reset our relations with Russia", Hurd later said. The speaker said he stood by his Monday statement that "the president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally".

"I'll take a back seat to no one in the United States Senate on challenging what happened at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, what happened in Helsinki", Corker said. Corker accused Trump of giving the impression that America was a weak nation, a pushover.

Reading mainly from a prepared statement, Trump said on Tuesday he had complete faith in US intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions.

Trump is known to spend mornings watching "Fox and Friends".

Some U.S. lawmakers have suggested passing resolutions voicing support for intelligence agencies, or spending more to enhance election security and prevent cyber attacks.

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.

After continuing his love affair with Russian Federation in the presence of Putin, while slagging his own intelligence organizations, Trump returned home to a firestorm of controversy from both political parties asking whose side is he on. "It shows the weakness of President Trump that he is afraid to confront Mr. Putin directly". Even radical and influential Right wing websites, such as Drudge Report, led with the headline, "Putin dominates in Hel", a play on the word hell and the shortening of Helsinki.

"We're doing everything in our power to prevent Russian interference in 2018", the president said.

Three years later, at least Trump seems to be consistent. Schumer questioned whether Putin has compromising material on Trump.

Details of the actual meeting between Trump and Putin, however, were not available because there was only a translator in the room with them.

Several senators from both parties backed tougher sanctions on Russian Federation. Trump also wants Iranian militias out of Syria.

"I think even President George W. Bush's meeting, where he had that famous quote about looking into Putin's eyes and seeing into his soul - this summit dwarfs that by a factor of a thousand".

While Congress has approved, nearly unanimously and with votes from both Republicans and Democrats, new sets of sanctions on Russia, Trump has tried to veto them, and when the vote came veto-proof to his desk, Trump chose not to impose any of the sanctions that Congress had recommended.

In the House, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi staged a vote in support of the intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

"I believe the Senate Foreign Relations Committee should hold a hearing with the American interpreter who was present during President Trump and President Putin's private meeting to determine what was specifically discussed and agreed to on the United States' behalf", Shaheen said.
