Putin talks to focus on security issues

Her solutions included "partnership", "counter-messaging", and finding a "different way to communicate their message across in a non-violent way".

On July 16, Dan Coats, the US director of national intelligence, said Russian Federation continued to pose a threat to USA electoral systems.

A spokesman for the White House National Security Council said later the United States on Friday rejected a proposal from Russian Federation for a referendum to decide the fate of eastern Ukraine. "We are ready for discussions on this subject". "So Republicans have told and are still telling witnesses "'do not come in" to intelligence committee hearings and "'don't tell the Democrats anything, '" Schiff alleged. "We need to assure the American people that we're doing everything we can to make sure there's a clean election".

"I don't think there's any doubt that they did it", she said.

"The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't - or why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", the president said Tuesday before a meeting with Republican members of Congress.

"We will see how things develop further", Putin said, evoking unnamed "forces" in the USA trying to prevent any improvement in relations and "putting narrow party interests above the national interest".

And even some of the President's own administration officials were surprised to learn he is inviting Putin to visit Washington this fall.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calls on a member of the media during the daily press briefing at the White House, Wednesday, July 18, 2018, in Washington.

But it was Coats' televised interview Thursday at a security conference in Aspen, Colo., that set off the president anew, as the intelligence director questioned the wisdom of the Putin meeting and said he had hoped Trump wouldn't meet alone with the Russian leader.

In a reference to his summit last month with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, he added: "Remember when they said I was too tough with Chairman Kim?"

US federal prosecutors accused Maria Butina this week of being a covert Russian agent and working to infiltrate USA political organizations, including the National Rifle Association, before and after Donald Trump's election as president. She said Trump was saying "no" to answering additional questions - although that didn't appear to be the case because he elaborated on Russian Federation.

Trump, by contrast, has come under widespread domestic criticism about the meeting both from Democratic opponents and senior Republicans.

Faced with yet another firestorm, the White House was later forced to undertake another course correction and on Thursday rejected the proposal in a public statement.

Coats, a two-time former senator, criticized the current atmosphere of intelligence oversight in Congress. "Things have been accomplished, but I think it could be a much better atmosphere", he said.
