Putin, Trump to meet at G-20 Summit

USA intelligence agencies say Russian Federation hacked and leaked emails of Democratic Party political groups to help Trump win the 2016 US presidential election against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"I find it dismaying and objectionable that President Trump continues to deny the undeniable fact that Russian Federation launched a major cyber attack against the United States- regardless of what party he (Putin) launched it against", Nicholas Burns told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence during a hearing on Wednesday.

A former American ambassador who served in both the administrations of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush slammed President Donald Trump for casting doubt as to whether Russian Federation was responsible for cyber attacks against the USA during last year's presidential election.

Democracy can not endure with an ignorant electorate.

"They will meet" on the sidelines of the G20, Mr Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, but added that "no preparations" are being made for any separate meeting at the moment.

The Trump administration's vexed relationship with Russian Federation, including contacts between some of the president's senior advisers and Moscow, has faced intense scrutiny amid a cascade of media revelations and a series of official investigations, including by special counsel Robert Mueller. But the officials said there was no evidence that Moscow was able to change the vote count.

Several congressional committee as well as the FBI are investigating Russia's role in the election and any alleged collusion by Trump's campaign.

"In many ways its meddling in European elections over the past year has produced the exact opposite of what was intended", she said.

He said it was traditional at such events that leaders crossed paths.

Aside from an official phone call between newly-inaugurated Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which the former trashed his predecessor's nuke treaty as a "bad deal" without understanding it, the pair hasn't met in person.

"They're trying to hack our political consciousness", she said. The country's Defense Ministry announced this year the establishment of a new cyber-warrior operation.

"I don't disagree with the president that our last president, President Obama, he did not do nothing, he did a lot, but he didn't do enough", Himes said.
