Congressman Adam Schiff: Trump Is Acting Like He's Compromised By Russia

Mr Coats issued a rare statement rebutting the president's comments during a press conference with Mr Putin doubting the findings of the intelligence community on Russian election interference. "The evidence is overwhelming and the president needs to say that and act like it", Gowdy added. "There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies".

It remains to be seen if Trump will take questions this week, or if press secretary Sarah Sanders will hold daily briefings. "I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more". I have President Putin.

Marco Rubio said the Federal Bureau of Investigation was right to investigate President Donald Trump's presidential campaign's connections to Russian Federation and that a news conference held by the president with Vladimir Putin was "not a good moment". "It's President Trump who has suggested that Crimea belongs properly to Russian Federation and that he'd be prepared to consider some accommodation for Russian Federation vis-a-vis Ukraine", Rice said.

Rubio, a Republican who has been critical of Putin's tactics for years, said the president had no choice but to rescind his comments after the Helsinki news conference played out poorly. "This country elected a president that was a former businessman, and, as a result, our economy is doing well, and we spend our time trying to have productive meetings with foreign leaders", Bossert continued.

On Saturday, the Salt Lake Tribune published a letter from Jon Huntsman Jr., the United States ambassador to Moscow, that appeared to reject a suggestion from a columnist for the newspaper that he resign after Mr Trump's remarks in Helsinki. "Those should be reserved for, I think, our allies".

"I call it a secret deal... because even the Director of National Intelligence, the person from whom no secrets are kept, doesn't know what the anticipated agenda of the summit was, what in fact the content of the two-hour private summit was, and the fact that there will be a follow-on summit..." He said that because of Trump's lack of political background, there was at times a clash between Trump's approach to Putin and the more hardline approach other politicians might have delivered in his position.

Trump endured a week of harsh criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike for his performance in Finland with Putin, and for the statements that followed in which the president seemingly continued to embrace Russian Federation and reject the USA intelligence community. He walked back that statement a day later, saying he'd meant to say he didn't see why Russian Federation wouldn't be involved. "That is separate from the question of whether or not we should be clear-eyed about who Putin is", Rubio said.

He said that Republicans also didn't want to investigate whether Moscow was funneling money through the National Rifle Association, a group that alleged Russian agent Maria Butina got cozy with in advance of the 2016 election. But this is unlikely to lead to any major change in how he approaches either Trump personally or the relationship with the United States overall.

France 1 Belgium 0
On Saturday they will set about securing third place, which would be the country's best ever World Cup placing. France sealed a 1-0 win over Hazard's Belgium side to triumph and book their place in the final on Sunday.
