SYRIA-CONFLICT

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused "powerful" forces within the United States of trying to sabotage ties between Moscow and Washington in the wake of a controversial summit with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.

Mr. Trump later told CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor that it's "true" Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, and he "would" hold Russian President Vladimir Putin responsible for interference.

While several Republican lawmakers said they believed Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election, some criticized GOP leaders for not being harsher in their condemnation of Trump's performance in Helsinki.

Mr Trump notably flip-flopped repeatedly over what exactly he said to Mr Putin at the summit, and whether he believes that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election campaign on Trump's behalf.

She said the US hopes Putin will have the indicted Russians "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt".

In a separate interview on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper", Clapper said he suspected both the host nation of Finland and Russian Federation have a recording or account of the private meeting between Trump and Putin.

"Certain forces are trying to disavow the results of the meeting in Helsinki", and hamper progress on what they discussed, such as limiting their nuclear arsenals or ending the war in Syria, Putin said.

Graham said he would consider a waiver "if the generals convinced me it was militarily necessary and it didn't empower Russian Federation and Syria".

Republican Sen. Rand Paul says "Trump derangement syndrome has fully come to the Senate".

Trump has faced sharp criticism from USA lawmakers - including key Republicans - and others who denounced his performance at a July 16 joint press conference with Putin following their Helsinki meeting.

Trump is planning to host Putin for talks in Washington later this year, after a first bilateral meeting in Helsinki on Monday.

"I think the best art can change people's perception of how they see how they are as human beings", says Burson.

Yesterday, Mr Trump accused opponents of preferring to go to war rather than seeing good relations with Russian Federation. According to the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders it appears that Trump was saying "no" to some other questions, and actually did not answer this specific question about Russian Federation.

"For goodness' sakes, we have the former head of the CIA, John Brennan, gallivanting across TV, now being paid for his opinion to call the president treasonous".

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is scheduled to meet with Mr Trump at the White House next Wednesday to discuss trade and other issues. "I'll have to think long and hard about that one". The Russian Defence Ministry has said it is ready to implement what it called agreements on increased co-operation with the US military in Syria.

On other points in his formal remarks, Putin lashed out at Europe and US -dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, saying Russian Federation would hit back with an "equivalent response" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bases near Russia's borders and other "aggressive steps".
