Top intelligence official says he meant no disrespect to Trump

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee blasted Trump suggesting he “acts like he’s compromised.” Rep. Adam Schiff D-Calif. was responding to Trump’s apparent acceptance during a news conference last week of Putin’s denial that

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said on Sunday that President Donald Trump's advisers should consider leaving the White House if Trump continues to publicly disparage the nation's intelligence community and cast doubt on the evidence that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the 2016 election.

Trump's tweets on Thursday come as he has alternated between trying to quell a political uproar over his comments in Helsinki - he refused to back the United States intelligence community's assessment of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election during a joint news conference with Putin, instead touting Putin's strong denials - and his desire to not back down or apologize over his performance.

Trump has drawn heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over his summit last Monday in Helsinki, Finland, with Putin, when he seemed reluctant to blame Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

As for the Helsinki meeting, "now we have Putin telling the world what was decided", she said, while "we're hearing crickets from the White House; nothing has been put out that contradicts or replaces Putin's agenda".

"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. "There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies". "The rhetoric can undermine policy and influence policy, but I don't think we've reached that point here with this".

He tweeted: "I had a GREAT meeting with Putin and the Fake News used every bit of their energy to try and disparage it". The Washington Post said Sunday that despite publicly talking up the success of the summit, Trump was fuming to aides in private that there had not been more dramatic steps forward in denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

"The fact that we have to talk to you (Russia) about Syria or other matters is very different from issuing an invitation", said Gowdy, who heads the House Oversight Committee.

Before his Aspen Security Forum appearance, Coats was already portrayed as a voice of dissent in the Trump administration by the mainstream media for seemingly standing up to Trump in the wake of the Helsinki summit, which Trump's opponents dubbed "disastrous" and "nothing short of treason". We are hearing no rebuttal or comment from the United States.

"I think it's imperative that he understand that he's misjudging Putin", Mr Graham told reporters. He walked back that statement a day later, saying he'd meant to say he didn't see why Russian Federation wouldn't be involved.

'Say that again. Did I hear you?' he asked, appearing amused. It was plain from the press conference that President Putin has no need to be concerned about Trump as an adversary.

Leonard was one of 35 players invited to participate in the camp , which will be led by Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. Leonard has been at odds with his Spurs franchise all season and played just nine games since last summer.

Mr Coats, who oversees the nation's 17 intelligence agencies, also said that if he had been asked, he would have advised Mr Trump against meeting Mr Putin alone, with just interpreters. When asked about Trump casting doubts about USA intelligence in regards to Russian meddling, the number jumped to 56 percent disapproving to just 29 percent approving.

But the next day, Trump pulled back his comments, saying he meant to say "wouldn't" instead of "would".

Barletta also sounded different than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said "the European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not" following a trip in which Trump also harshly criticized traditional allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit over what Trump called "delinquent" defense spending.

On "State of the Union", Rubio said Putin is not interested in better relations and wants to get an advantage.
