Susan Rice: 'Historic mistake' to allow USA president to meet with Putin

Susan Rice: 'Historic mistake' to allow USA president to meet with Putin

Senator Lindsey Graham said additional sanctions needed to be tied up before President Donald Trump holds a second meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the USA leader came under heavy criticism for failing to confront Putin about interference in the 2016 election at a summit last Monday.

In this week's fact-checking video, CNN's Jake Tapper reviews a statement that President Donald Trump made about the FBI investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

A meeting of U.S. and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin took place in the Finnish capital Helsinki on July 16.

Rep. Adam Schiff on Pres. Trump: "For whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised. There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies". John McCain, R-Ariz., for example, called Trump's performance one of the most disgraceful by a US president in memory.

"The reality is we have no idea what this president, our president, agreed to", he said.

The intelligence chief was speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday when news of a possible second Trump-Putin summit later this year broke.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump was suggesting that the entire notion of Russian interference - US intelligence agencies unanimously concur it took place and Trump reluctantly accepted their assessment amid the firestorm - was fraudulent, or just the investigation of potential collusion by Trump associates with Russian agents.

President Donald Trump is lashing out in all directions as the fallout from his summit with Vladimir Putin becomes ever more toxic, the Russian Federation investigation grinds on with no end in sight, and his frustration boils over on a lack of progress on North Korea.

Trump infamously said last week during a joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki that he was partial to Putin's denials. "So just to repeat it, I said the word 'would" instead of 'wouldn't'". "I mean, it was a series of extraordinary capitulations that really do legitimately call into question what is going on", Rice said. "That will be the last time you ever have a foreign leader meet with a president of the United States privately".

Helsinki Summit: Trump-Putin Gear Up For Talks
In his public remarks at the outset, he mentioned none of the issues that have lately brought U.S. It was a little bit tough at the beginning, but it turned out to be love.

Trump grudgingly walked back one of those remarks after returning to Washington, but then muddied the waters again - first by suggesting unspecified "others" might have interfered in the USA election as well, an assertion unsupported by intelligence, and then by answering "no" when he was asked the next day if Russian Federation is continuing to "target" the United States generally.

US Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted yesterday announcing that President Trump had asked for Putin to be invited to Washington this autumn.

Bossert insisted that Trump's private conversation with Putin in Helsinki was "productive", despite the mainstream media's predictable narrative and the Russian government's spin.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last week identified the bill as a potential step Congress could take to push back against Russian Federation as Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for sanctions and other deterrents. The POTUS, at first, sided with Putin over his own US Intelligence community but walked back his words one day later, claiming he "misspoke" and had no reason to believe Russian Federation wasn't involved.

Whatever Trump's motivation, there is also anxiety in Washington over his strategy of getting closer to Putin, even though most observers understand the necessity of communication between the world's two top nuclear powers at a time of dangerously ruptured ties with Moscow.

GST council meet: Sanitary napkins exempted from GST
This would mean there would be no input tax credit available, even though inputs in the production of sanitary napkins are taxed. The items which could be considered for cutting of tax rates might include sanitary napkins , handicrafts and handloom goods.

"The possibility of a civil war in Nicaragua is real", Rubio said. 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.
