Trump’s Handwritten Note on Russian Collusion Statement: "THERE WAS NO COLUSION"

Trump’s Handwritten Note on Russian Collusion Statement:

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'".

"I've said this many times", Trump said, reading from the written statement. "I didn't know [Putin]" during the election, Trump said.

That trip takes place in three weeks, a spokesman for Paul said Tuesday.

Trump then added that "it could be other people also, there's a lot of people out there".

Browder confirmed reports by TASS and other Russian news agencies that Russian prosecutors want to interview USA special agents Todd Hyman, Alexander Schwarzman, and Svetlana Angert, all of whom Browder said were involved in investigating a client of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya for alleged money laundering.

At a news conference following the summit, President Trump was asked whether US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's comments regarding operations in Syria that "the ball is on the side of Russia" were correct, and if so, what were the president's next steps.

Lawmakers had urged Trump to press for the extradition of the 12 Russian intelligence agents named in the indictment but Putin did not commit to doing so.

"You know, Russian Federation and the United States control 90% of the nuclear weapons in the world and getting along with Russian Federation - and not only for that reason - it's a good thing, not a bad thing", he said.


John McCain, the senior Republican senator, said Trump's seeming acceptance of Putin's denial was a historical "low point" for the United States presidency. Asked if Russian Federation was at all to blame for the poor ties, he said: "I hold both countries responsible".

Taking direct issue with the president who appointed him, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said United States spy agencies have been "clear" and "fact-based" in their assessment that Moscow interfered in the presidential race two years ago. "There was no collusion with the campaign".

Republican leaders, outraged by Mr Trump's comments in Helsinki, found out about his attempts to quell the outrage the same way everyone else did, as one aide put it, by watching and learning.

"I have to say, I came back and I said".

One of the most conservative men in media, Neil Cavuto, on Fox News, said what Donald Trump did today alongside Putin was absolutely "disgusting".

Trump sparked backlash after he sided with Putin rather than his own intelligence services on whether Russian Federation had meddled in the 2016 USA election. The most telling aside of Trump's 2016 candidacy - that he could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and retain his support - has given way to a presidency that has broadly proved him right, through trade wars and adult film stars, praise for foreign dictators, and excuses for white supremacists.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant", said McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
