Adam Schiff: Helsinki Talks 'Productive...For Vladimir Putin'

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

Rubio criticized Trump's statements at a news conference after the Helsinki summit with Putin.

Six days after Trump's sit-down in Helsinki with Putin, guests on the Sunday news shows were still trying to interpret his head-scratching performance in which he sided with Putin over the United States intelligence agencies - only to walk back his comments a day later. "So President Trump had a productive set of conversations".

Coats went on to say, "I and the entire intel community are committed to providing the best possible intelligence to inform and support President Trump's ongoing efforts to prevent Russian meddling in our upcoming elections, to build strong relationships internationally in order to maintain peace, denuclearize risky regimes and protect our nation and our allies".

Republican US Senators Marco Rubio (L) and Lindsey Graham are seen in this combination photo from US Senate hearings on Capitol Hill in Washington, US on March 14, 2018 and on June 18, 2018 respectively. President Clinton presented to the American people what was being discussed with individuals.

Americans disapproved of the way President Donald Trump handled his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The rest have no opinion. The White House knew that Coats was speaking in Aspen at the time that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that Trump had extended an invitation to the Russian president, officials said.

Trump was also reportedly surprised at the backlash and negative media coverage of the meeting, where he refused to condemn Russian Federation for interfering in the 2016 election.

While he remains consumed by his outreach to Putin, Trump is also fuming about Mueller's investigation, apparently reasoning that he can use it to drum up partisan fury that will enthuse the base voters he needs to stave off a Democratic surge in the midterms.

The Belgium No.1 has one year remaining on his contract at Chelsea and has so far proved unwilling to sign a new deal. City tried to sign the Italy midfielder from Napoli but he opted for a move to Chelsea.

"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.

United States intelligence services have concluded Russian agents had attempted to influence the election in Trump's favour through a coordinated campaign of fake news and social media bots. But a smaller 31 percent disapprove, with 18 percent offering no opinion.

For his part, Barletta said in a statement released by his campaign that he, too, agrees with US intelligence agencies, and that he will "continue to do everything I can" to prevent Russian Federation from doing so again.

He is also facing increasing scrutiny about the results of another major summit: his encounter with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last month, which ended with Trump declaring he had solved the isolated nation's nuclear threat.

The findings indicate that while Trump was judged critically for his summit performance, the event has not yet proved to be a significant turning point in his presidency. "They've got a lot of nuclear weapons, and so we do need to interact with them". By contrast, 80 percent of Democrats now say Trump has weakened USA leadership around the world.

Schiff's comments as controversy continues to swirl over Trump's unwilling to denounce Russian election meddling to Putin's face, something that Trump threw flames on Sunday night when he sent out a tweet declaring Russia's meddling "a hoax." . Those without college degrees are almost three times as likely to say they have no opinion of Trump's performance. Men were slightly less disapproving of the president's handling of the summit than women, but the gap was not statistically significant.

Toomey also aggressively attacked Putin, calling him a "bad actor" who should be treated as an global pariah.
