Donald Trump says Putin responsible for Russian meddling in 2016 election

"I let him know we can't have this, we're not going to have it, and that's the way it's going to be", Trump said in an interview with CBS.

Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can't concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome.

But the agencies' responses were contradicted by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who said the president's "team" is considering the Russian request, which Trump at the summit had called "an incredible offer". He has "full faith" in United States intelligence agencies, he went on to say, and that he accepted their findings that Russian Federation had meddled in the elections.

He asserted at the White House that no other American president has been as tough on Russian Federation.

It is also a charge that reveals how much some journalists detest Donald Trump. "I wanted to create answers to unasked questions", says Burson, about the origins of her artistic process, "like what would it look like if you put six men and six women together?"

He appeared to respond again: "No".

Sanders also addressed how the administration is working to prevent Russian meddling in USA elections in the future.

Both presidents said after the Helsinki summit that a big step forward had been taken.

Later, Ms Vega tweeted that the president had been looking directly at her when he answered.

Asked if a recording of the meeting existed, Sanders said: "I'm not aware of one".

Donald Trump was under fire for backing Vladimir Putin's denial that Russian Federation had been involved in election interference, and though he walked back the claim after furious opposition from both Democrats and Republicans, he appeared to stick by that assessment in the interview with Tucker Carlson, which had been filmed before his reversal.

His toughness with Vladimir Putin in question, President Donald Trump declared on Wednesday he had told the Russian leader face to face to stay out of America's elections "and that's the way it's going to be".

The Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder said he hasn't heard from anyone in the Trump administration and called the idea of handing over senior US officials to the Russians "just beyond belief".

The General Prosecutor's Office is poised to send an official request to the United States' authorities to question a number of USA officials and intelligence agents as part of a criminal case against Hermitage Capital Management CEO Bill Browder.

Mr Trump adopted his usual defiant posture yesterday over the furore, calling his critics deranged. A Washington Post-Schar School poll conducted in late June and early July found that almost half of registered voters - 48 percent - think Democrats running for Congress have been too critical of Trump. And some anchors ripped him, in the new style of strong criticism of Trump from those who are not commentators.

In the survey, 42% of all registered voters approved of his job performance, which is consistent with averages thus far.

First Deputy Chairwoman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, MP Iryna Gerashchenko has said Ukrainian diplomats and lawyers must use Russian President Vladimir Putin's statement on a Russian-organized "referendum" in Ukraine's Crimea as confession while preparing lawsuits in worldwide courts. Pompeo is to publicly testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on July 25.

So what did he say to Putin about it, then?

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, tried on Tuesday to stage a symbolic vote to support the findings of Russian interference, but was blocked by Republicans.

But Texas Republican John Cornyn said the Senate should focus on "additional sanctions instead of just some messaging exercise".

Trump took to Twitter early today to defend the meeting, promising "big results" from better relations with Russian Federation and hitting back at "haters".

After the outburst of news at the beginning of this week from President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin's meeting in Helsinki, Finland, we decided it was time to call a special midweek news roundtable to dig into the headlines.

Michael Avenatti, the outspoken lawyer for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels who is suing Trump, said he deliberately did not use the word "treason" or "traitor" when he spoke at the White House protest Tuesday night. "I think President Putin knows that better than anybody, certainly a lot better than the media, " Trump told reporters.
