After backlash, Trump says misspoke on Russian election meddling”

Lisa Murkowski, who demanded a more forceful response from Trump.

Browder worked with Congress to get the Magnitsky Act passed, preventing foreigners who violate human rights from entering the U.S. The vocal critic of Putin said he would meet with Trump and thinks the president should decisively denounce any suggestion of handing over U.S. officials to Russian Federation for questioning.

When asked whether Trump's initial siding with Putin raised any red flags, John expressed his confidence in the president.

At a later briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president was saying "no" to answering questions, not to the question itself. I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russian Federation.

-.Russian Federation has agreed to help with North Korea, where relationships with us are very good and the process is moving along.

In the meantime, lawmakers were left trying to interpret what Trump said. Sen.

After Wednesday's events, the White House sought to alter the narrative.

But they were stymied just 24 hours later by an increasingly unreliable partner in the White House, who rejected an assessment by his intelligence agencies for the third time this week by saying he did not believe Russian Federation continues to target the U.S. "I am very relieved".

McFaul said the White House, by considering the request, was "assigning moral equivalence between a legitimate indictment of Russian intelligence officers.to a cockamamie fantasy (from Moscow) with no basis in reality".

In rebutting Trump's dismissive comments about USA intelligence on Monday, Coats said, "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

The issue of Russian election interference could come up later on Tuesday, when Trump was scheduled to meet with members of Congress, although it is expected to focus on tax reform.

U.S. intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November. If you're strong, we're going to galvanize people around you and you're going to win in November.

USA lawmakers are calling for a court demand to be issued for the notes of the U.S. translator who accompanied Mr Trump to his two-hour meeting with Mr Putin.

That didn't explain why Trump, who had tweeted a half-dozen times and sat for two television interviews since the Putin news conference, waited so long to correct his remarks. One GOP aide called any such legislation "a potential magnet" for amendments that could create problems for the bill given its subject matter.

"We want the interpreter to come before the committee".

Senators Jeff Flake and Chris Coons, an Arizona Republican and a Delaware Democrat, are reportedly working on a nonbinding resolution to endorse the intelligence committee's findings. That assertion is not supported by known intelligence.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who called Russia's government "menacing", said he would consider additional sanctions on Russian Federation and reiterated his support for USA intelligence findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.
