Timing of Mueller’s Russia Indictment Wasn’t Trolling - Trump Requested It

Donald Trump has the perfect excuse to insist he did not kowtow to Putin Bad grammar Alaska Sens. Murkowski, Sullivan critical of Trump’s Russia statements at Helsinki summit

During a joint press conference in Helsinki with Putin, Trump said while he has "great confidence" in the USA intelligence community, Putin was "very powerful" in his denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election, comments that he attempted to walk back Tuesday.

Facing fury from his own party, Trump sought to end over a day of recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error.

The White House sent talking points to Republican surrogates and members of Congress on Monday as aides dealt with the fallout of the summit between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a GOP source.

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

And the scripted cleanup pertained only to the least defensible of his comments.

Trump said he misspoke on Monday when he questioned the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election. Yet in a sign that he cannot fully accept those findings - seeing them as a challenge to his legitimacy - he added that it "could be other people also".

Spending records seen by Reuters show that the U.S. State Department, which typically arranges presidential travel overseas, paid $77,345.35 since April to SLC Turnberry Ltd, the Trump company that owns the resort, for "hotel rooms for VIP visit". "I was saying to myself the other day, "You know, Russian Federation really helped us", he said.

"I think the president owes the American people, and more importantly he owes the intelligence community, all the information that was shared in those two hours when nobody was present", Emanuel said during the news conference at police headquarters.

With no ifs or buts, the Republican leader declared: "The European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not".

Trump caused political havoc during his four-day stay in Britain after giving an interview to the Sun newspaper in which he said May's Brexit strategy could kill off a U.S. trade deal and declared her rival, former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, would make an excellent prime minister.

Brennan, who describes himself as a "nonpartisan American who is very concerned about our collective future", blasted Trump's news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump actively prefers summits with America's traditional enemies, Russian Federation and before that North Korea, than conversation with the countries that count as the US' allies.

He said: 'It's 24 hours too late and in the wrong place'.

He added that he had "full faith and support" for the USA intelligence agencies and "accepts" their conclusion that there was Russian interference but he added: "It could be other people also".

Now it looks like those complaining about the timing should have checked with Trump first.

He rallied European populists in London ahead of the president's visit to the United Kingdom last week and emerged on Tuesday to defend Trump's press conference performance. His Twitter feed is often littered with typos, and he frequently misspells "counsel" when rage-tweeting about the special counsel's probe into Russian election interference.
