  • Trump Seemed To Exhibit Multiple Personalities At NATO Summit

"Today's charges include no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the campaign and no allegations that the alleged hacking affected the election result", said Lindsay Walters, the deputy White House press secretary.

Relations between Russia and the USA have sunk to their lowest point since the Cold War times over the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

The prime minister said that she "welcomed" Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which is to take place on Monday in Helsinki, Finland.

In response to the indictment, Democrats overwhelmingly called for Trump not to meet with Putin.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made no statement immediately after the indictments were announced at the Justice Department.

Remember back on July 27 of 2016, when Trump took the stage to goad Russian Federation into hacking Hillary Clinton, saying, "Russia, if you are listening I hope you are able to find the 30K emails that are missing"?

"The US intelligence community knows that the Russian government attacked the US", he said in a statement.

Trump has repeatedly called the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller a "witch hunt", and some of his allies have said the probe should be brought to a quick conclusion. The allegation was part of new charges Rosenstein announced against 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking offenses during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump indicated on Thursday that he does not have a list of demands for the Russian president. It went on to say they also "hacked into the computers of a US vendor that supplied software used to verify voter registration information for the 2016 USA elections". That, Peter Baker told FRONTLINE, "tells Obama everything he needs to know about Putin, that this is somebody who is, in his mind, locked in the past, who is- who is nursing resentment and who is going to never be a full partner of the United States".

"This was not an attack on Republicans or an attack on Democrats - this was an attack on the United States", he added.

Page was subpoenaed to provide a deposition behind closed doors on Wednesday, but she didn't appear under Jeffress's advice. Strzok and Page were both members of the special counsel Robert Mueller had appointed to run the Russian investigation.

"We want there to be a possibility that these talks create an atmosphere that would allow us to discuss future contacts and, in particular, normal contacts in the form of visits to our respective countries".

Mr Trump said his relationship with Mrs May was "very, very strong". But he predicted Putin wouldn't confess. "I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here I don't think", he continued. "He's not my enemy", Trump said.

"Helsinki Calling is not a protest against Trump or Putin", Hussein said.

Ahead of the Helsinki meeting, Trump upended the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit by demanding that America's closest allies more rapidly increase their defence spending, insinuating the USA might otherwise withdraw from the bloc.

Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain echoed the sentiment.

Failing to take as tough a tone with Putin - whose leadership Trump frequently compliments and praises, underscoring his desire for a friendly relationship - could be perilous. If Russia hacked someone again, this time on Trump's watch, Trump really might get annoyed at the perception that he can't - or won't - protect the country from foreign interference.

When is the Trump Putin summit in Helsinki?

But as Trump continues to describe the Russian Federation probe as a "witch hunt", the White House downplayed the latest allegations.

Two Foreign Affairs Democrats, ranking member Eliot L. Engel of NY and Ted Lieu of California, joined House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith, Rep.
