US lawmakers condemn Trump over Helsinki summit with Putin

US lawmakers condemn Trump over Helsinki summit with Putin

"I don't see any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere in the election, Trump added, while then claiming he maintains confidence in the intelligence community. Putin shot back. "Have you forgotten about - well, has [President John F.] Kennedy been killed in Russian Federation or in the United States? But our cooperation between the two countries has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives", said Trump.

What did America see in one incredible news conference Monday? Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called it "shameful".

Russia's foreign ministry tweeted in response: "We agree".

"Presidents Trump and Putin respect each other and they get along well", Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said.

U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) speaks with news media at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington on Monday.

Trump's trip to Belgium, Britain and Finland was marked by his frequent taunts and threats aimed at America's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, a sharp contrast to his unrestrained bid to curry favour with Russian Federation despite the conclusion by USA intelligence agencies that Moscow meddled in the 2016 United States election to aid his candidacy. Most Republicans said nothing.

In a Monday press conference, President Trump did not attempt to push back on Russian President Vladimir Putin's assertion that Russia did not interfere with the 2016 election.

And they say that on the same day Mr Trump, in a speech, urged Russia to find Mrs Clinton's missing emails, Russian hackers tried for the first time to break into email accounts used by her personal office.

"[Russia] remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals".

Trump ally Newt Gingrich called it "the most serious mistake" of Trump's presidency - and one that "must be corrected - immediately".

Amazon's Prime Day still broke records, despite glitches
Still, it's fair to assume Amazon .com's cloud servers temporarily buckled under the increased web traffic around Prime Day. In Europe , however, Amazon employees were using Prime Day to draw attention to their complaints against the company.

Since then, the evidence of Russian interference has become stronger.

In an extraordinary moment in the lengthy interview, Mr Putin also said his interviewer was "completely deceived" about the "real situation" in Syria and went into attack mode when he was asked why his political enemies have been targeted.

"We are starting to achieve some understanding which gives us sufficient ground to say that some things - a lot of things changed to the better during today's meeting", he said.

We saw our president once again malign the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department for investigating Russian interference in our 2016 election, then decline to object when Putin denied his country's involvement. But Mr Trump's hold on the GOP is being put to the test by his willingness to align with Mr Putin, a leader whom Republicans routinely describe as an enemy of the United States. They say the former reality star and relentless tabloid self-promoter believes that any suggestion of Russian interference undermines his victory - and his brand. He said he has "complete confidence in our intelligence community and the findings".

The second-ranking Republican, Sen.

When asked repeatedly and directly to condemn Putin's meddling in the 2016 election - a fact established not only by Federal Bureau of Investigation indictments but also by America's entire intelligence community - Trump refused.

"Yes, I did", Putin said, when asked if he wanted Trump to win.

When asked why so many of his critics wind up dead, Putin is blaming troubles with crime in Russian Federation and noting the USA has struggled, too, citing John F. Kennedy's assassination and clashes between police and civilians.

Asked if there was anything he thinks Russian Federation should take responsibility for, Trump said: 'We're all to blame'.
