  • Rosenstein announces 12 indictments of Russians in Mueller probe

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with Russia's President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, July 16, 2018.

"I'll allow president to speak for himself", Rosenstein said, asked for Mr. Trump's response to the news.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity", Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

Mr. Trump said he had raised the issue of alleged Russian meddling in US elections.

"They're paying and they're paying more rapidly and I think North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has never been stronger than it is today", said Trump referring to defense spending commitments tied to a minimum percentage of the gross domestic product of the alliance's member states. "I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", said Trump, repeatedly denouncing the special counsel investigation into Russian interference efforts, which intelligence officials warn are ongoing. We have 90 percent of the nuclear, and that's not a good thing.

Mueller's probe, which began in May of 2017 to determine if any of Trump's campaign associates worked with Russia to interfere with the election, has brought 79 charges against 20 people and three companies; 14 of those charged are Russians.

"Well I think we have a lot of foes", Trump told CBS News when asked who he thinks is the U.S.' biggest enemy.

"The Russians aren't done", she said at a book signing late past year.

But after the talks, both leaders welcomed the meeting as a "good start" and a "very successful" one.

If true, it's not clear how the threats were communicated, though the Times states that an official from Ecuador claimed the U.S. But Russia rescued the resolution by stepping in and introducing it.

In a news conference following the summit, Trump said they had discussed trade, terrorism and the allegations against Russian Federation.

Butina apparently built close ties with the GOP through a gun rights organization, which sources say is the NRA, to advance Russia's interests in America, per the DOJ affadavit.

'I think we hopefully can do something about that because it's not a positive force, it's a negative force'. Again, witnessing these vintage Putin games, Trump just nodded along. This, too, undercuts the idea that Trump will hold Putin's feet to the fire on any of those issues, however much his advisers (and his party) might hope that he does so.

"NATO was a little bit tough at the beginning and it turned out to be love", replied Trump.

That assertion that Trump is powerless to hold Putin accountable on election interference raises an important question: How, then, does he plan to hold Putin accountable on Ukraine or Syria?

Observers have raised concerns about the fact that the leaders will be alone during their first meeting, but for a pair of interpreters, meaning there will be no corroborating witnesses to accurately represent what was said during the conversation. She connected with politicians and candidates and even went to National Prayer Breakfasts, all under the direction of a high-level Russian official who was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department in April, The Associated Press reports. Trump also has agreed to sit down with Glor in Washington on Monday after his Helsinki sit-down with Putin.

Mr. Putin said the talks with his US counterpart were "very successful, useful".

The summit comes days after the US indictment of 12 alleged Russian military intelligence agents for sophisticated hacking in the 2016 election.
