McCain Blasts Trump Press Conference

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki Finland Monday

Schumer described himself as "appalled" by Trump's performance at a joint press conference with Putin during which the US leader refused to state Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election and contradicted his own intelligence agency bosses.

Piggybacking off the Russian president's skepticism of US law enforcement, Trump called the FBI's investigation "a disaster" for the United States, breaking with National Intelligence director Dan Coates' concerns of Russian cyber-attacks.

Coats, a former IN senator, said his team has "been clear IN our assessments of Russian meddling" after Trump said he takes Putin at his "strong" words denying attempts to interfere IN the 2016 election.

"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Put was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", said Trump, repeatedly denouncing the special counsel investigation into Russian interference efforts, which intelligence officials warn are ongoing.

Top Wisconsin Republicans took different views on Monday, July 16 after Russian President Vladimir Putin asserted that his country had not meddled in the 2016 election.

I am confident former CIA Director and current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, DNI Dan Coats, Ambassador Nikki Haley, FBI Director Chris Wray, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others will be able to communicate to the President it is possible to conclude Russian Federation interfered with our election in 2016 without delegitimizing his electoral success.

"I felt like that everyone who's dealt with Putin understands fully that the best way to deal with him is through strength", Corker told reporters. We have another point of view... that a referendum was held in accordance with worldwide law.

Two former U.S. intelligence chiefs expressed shock over Trump's appearance of "capitulating" to Putin.

"Any statement by Vladimir Putin contrary to these facts is a lie and should be recognized as one by the President". "I am confident former CIA Director and current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, DNI Dan Coats, Ambassador Nikki Haley, FBI Director Chris Wray, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others will be able to communicate to the President it is possible to conclude Russian Federation interfered with our election in 2016 without delegitimizing his electoral success".

However, Lukyanov said that beyond those areas he had doubts that Trump would be able to hold to a course of more fundamental change in the U.S. -Russia relationship, noting that proposals that came out of Trump's first meeting with Putin in Germany previous year collapsed nearly immediately. He added: "I don't see any reason why they [the Russians] would have done it".

Both the USA and Kremlin leaders have furiously denied Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

"We have not been getting along well for the last number of years", Trump said after arriving at the Presidential Palace in Finland's capital, where the leaders are meeting. The fearless journalist then asked Mr Putin - who is known for silencing the media and suppressing free speech - if he had any compromising material on Donald Trump. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostle to our most basic values and ideals.

At a press conference following the summit, Trump praised their "direct, open and deeply productive dialogue" and emphasised the need for continued diplomacy over confrontation.

When asked whether he wanted Mr. Trump to win, President Putin smiled. "But when Trump so easily and naively accepts Putin's line about not being involved, I can understand why [Democrats] think Putin must have the goods on him", Fleischer tweeted.

U.S. Rep. Kirsten Sinema (D-Arizona), who is running for the seat Flake is vacating, issued a statement saying she was "highly disturbed" by Trump's comments.

"I hope this message reaches Helsinki".

Mr Trump cowardly dodged the question without denouncing Russian Federation, or even hinting that there was any misconduct. President Trump missed an opportunity to publicly press President Putin on whether he would agree to extradite the defendants to the United States to answer the allegations in court.
