Top intel official says he meant no disrespect to Trump

USA prosecutors have accused Maria Butina of working to infiltrate political organisations, including the National Rifle Association, before and after Donald Trump's election as president in 2016.

If such agreements were indeed made, it seems the top United States officials tasked with carrying them out have not been informed.

The U.S. Secret Service says that's standard for all gifts to the president. "We are still very vulnerable and we don't have leadership from the administration". It found its voice today, and what came out was less a battle cry than a chorus of "Kumbaya". "At the same time, we are able to boldly and defensively protect and defend our own national interests". "It does not matter how big or small you are, but to what extent you cherish the values of freedom, solidarity and democracy".

In other issues, Roe said the U.S. House Committee of Veterans Affairs, which he serves as chairman, has begun hearings on a so-called "Forever G.I. Bill" that would extend veterans benefits for a lifetime.

The Government of Montenegro issued a response Thursday to President Trump's implication the country could start World War III.

"I understand what you're saying, I've asked the same question", Trump responded.

Dan Coats, US Director of National Intelligence, said on Saturday he in no way meant to be disrespectful toward President Donald Trump with what he called his "awkward response" to news of a second planned summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. They were discussing NATO's mutual defense pact.

Army Gen. Joseph Votel, head of US Central Command, which is responsible for US military involvement in the Middle East including Afghanistan and Syria, said Thursday he had received "no new guidance as a result of Helsinki".

The statement concluded by reaffirming that Montenegro and USA relations are "strong and permanent".

"They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you're in World War III".

He consistently pressed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to increase their defense spending, though ultimately confirmed the USA commitment to the defense alliance at the summit's conclusion.

As always, Trump's critics bail him out by overplaying their hands. Roe was specifically critical of former President Barack Obama, who he said wasn't as tough as Trump has been on the Russians. Montenegro, which means "Black Mountain", does boast of a heroic warring tradition forged over centuries of conquest and contemporary conflicts in the troubled Balkans.

Donald Trump might not be widely regarded as a fountain of historical knowledge, but based on what he told a Fox news interviewer, he does seem to recall that the devastating First World War was caused by political friction in the Balkans. "It was a part of my role, and I felt that it was important that I do that".

"This is an extraordinary remedy, I realize, but then it's extraordinary for the president of the United States to ask all of his senior staff essentials to leave the room and have a conversation with an adversary", Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told Politico, in reference to the move to subpoena Gross. "If there's been aggression, it's come from Moscow, not Montenegro".
