"There are serious matters and I think there's no ignoring the fact that for whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised", Schiff added. Podesta's emails, they hacked into the DNC, it could be us next. The critics include Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan who said, " There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world".
Senator Lindsey Graham said additional sanctions needed to be tied up before President Donald Trump holds a second meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the United States leader came under heavy criticism for failing to confront Putin about interference in the 2016 election at a summit last Monday. Trump appeared to accept what he called Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denials of Russian government election interference over the conclusions of every US intelligence agency. The New York Times later reported, and the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed to CNN, that Trump was briefed on specific U.S. intelligence indicating that Putin personally ordered the 2016 Russian influence campaign. "Sort of a double negative". He asked his interviewer, "Say that again, did I hear you?"
Mr Trump accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats. "The rhetoric can undermine policy and influence policy, but I don't think we've reached that point here with this". And I'm glad that he did it, you know?
"It's an easy cheap shot to say the president's been compromised by the Russians", Bossert told ABC.
"They've got a lot of nuclear weapons, and so we do need to interact with them". On Tuesday, Trump said he needed to "clarify" one word he said during the press conference.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Sunday that President Donald Trump's top advisers should consider resigning if he doesn't follow their advice on Russian Federation. "I'm sure he's been on the FBI's radar for a long time, well before 2016".
She said the United States has four main adversaries: Russia, China, NorthKorea and Iran. Rubio co-authored the legislation with Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen, a bipartisan effort revived by the fallout of last week's summit.
Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has previously backed the US intelligence community's findings on Russian Federation and actions taken by the FBI in its investigations of the matter.
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. I don't mind him dealing with Russian Federation, I just want to deal with Russian Federation from a position of strength.
The Helsinki conference did not go well for the US, by Rubio's assessment. "It's President Trump who has suggested that Crimea belongs properly to Russian Federation and that he'd be prepared to consider some accommodation for Russian Federation vis-a-vis Ukraine", Rice said. The White House went on to say the president was discussing the possibility with his team.
