Rubio on Trump's Russian Federation messaging: "Not a good moment for the administration"

Video: Trump on DNC Server

Speaking to Howard Kurtz on Fox News' "Media Buzz" on Sunday, Spicer said that Trump had admitted to fumbling his words when he appeared to side with Putin and cast doubts on US intelligence conclusions about Russian meddling, but added that Trump in the past had spoken very clearly about Russian hacking. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he supports President Donald Trump interacting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but said Trump should be aware of Putin's human rights record and zero-sum approach to the U.S. -Russia relationship. Former Trump Homeland Security Adviser and now ABC News contributor Tom Bossert disagreed with Schiff's assessment, telling Stephanopoulos in the same interview, "It's an easy, cheap shot to say the president's been compromised by the Russians".

When Rubio made a similar comment on CNN's "State of the Union", Jake Tapper, "Don't you think you're being remarkably forgiving of President Trump's behavior toward Putin?"

The White House Thursday said Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer to allow US questioning of 12 Russians who have been indicted for election interference.

If they have that kind of meeting, I think the president owes it to the American people to talk about what was discussed at that meeting, period.

Graham continued: "What I do expect is for the administration and the president, eventually, to tell us were any agreements reached".

"Basically, they are the ones that are trying to undermine our basic values and divide with our allies", Mr Coats said of Russian Federation. "I will also say this", Gowdy opined.

Trump infamously said last week during a joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki that he was partial to Putin's denials. "The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't - or why it wouldn't be Russian Federation".

One source said there was a belief that if Coats had been in Washington instead of Colorado, he would not have been surprised by the news. "When I said this was a missed opportunity, we reinforced a narrative that's bad for us as a nation, it came across weak". "I think it's important to continue them". Instead, he directed his ire at Democrats and USA officials, calling special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference a "disaster" and a "witch hunt".

President Donald Trump reportedly told aides he was impressed with Russian President Vladimir Putin after their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki last week.

"It was a solid application and renewals signed by four different judges appointed by three different Republican presidents", Schiff said on ABC's "This Week". "That's an asymmetric advantage for the Kremlin because they do".

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, a ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said the documents detail "just why the Federal Bureau of Investigation was so concerned that Carter Page might be acting as an agent of a foreign power". "The failing is that the president hasn't even described to his own intelligence chief what he may have agreed to".

Undaunted by the backlash in his own party to his first meeting, Trump invited Putin to a White House meeting sometime this autumn. As I said, it was not a good moment, but it was what it was.
