Trump criticized for his backing of Putin at summit

Paul Ryan: ‘No question’ Russians meddled in 2016 U.S. election

"In addition to his comments at the press conference, Putin again denied any Russian interference in the USA election in an interview with Fox News" Chris Wallace.

Vladimir Putin dismissed allegations that his government meddled in the 2016 USA presidential election as "utterly ridiculous", and denied suggestions that Russian Federation had compromising information on Donald Trump.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, a Republican and a Trump appointee, in an unusual statement responding to Trump's remarks, stood by the US agencies.

Trump told reporters he "spent a great deal of time" talking about the allegation with Putin, while Putin categorically denied any interference in the US internal affairs. "But I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", Trump said.

And what is really important is that the director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, came out with a statement after the press conference saying that he believes that Russian Federation meddled in the elections.

"Russia as a state has never interfered with the internal affairs of the United States, let alone its elections", Putin told Fox News' Chris Wallace in an interview that aired Monday evening.

He went on to warn that Russian Federation remains capable of launching an interference campaign on 2018 midterm elections similar to what occurred in 2016 "we are just one click on a keyboard away from a similar situation repeating itself", he said. They say they are not in support of Putin and would like to see more democracy in Russian Federation.

Wallace read Putin a portion of the indictment handed down by a federal grand jury last week in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation that accused 12 Russian intelligence officers of breaking into Democratic computer systems and stealing emails and documents.

Earlier Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Trump's performance in Helsinki "proves that the Russians have something on the president, personally, financially, or politically".

Lasha Tchantouridze is a professor of diplomacy and global relations at Norwich University, who specializes in Russian Federation and the U.S. He says this meeting between the two leaders could be the start of something different. The implication is that Putin is a more credible source of information about Russian skullduggery than the combined intelligence agencies of the US government.

Fortunately, other members of the Trump administration see that clearly, as does Congress.

"Our law enforcement is perfectly able to do this questioning and send the appropriatematerials to the United States", he said.

Trump has repeatedly branded the Mueller probe a "witch hunt".

He added: "The President must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally". John McCain of Arizona issued one of the harshest statements, saying, "No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant".

President Donald Trump says Russian President Vladimir Putin made an "incredible offer" to allow Russian and USA investigators to work together on allegations of Russian cyber attacks. "I think we should have conversations", Paul said.

Putin kept Trump waiting almost an hour as he arrived in Helsinki Monday at 1 p.m. local time, just 10 minutes before the scheduled start.

However, before the summit began, Mr Trump blamed his own country for the deterioration in relations. Putin also denied to Wallace that his government has "compromising material" on Trump.
