White House weighs Putin proposal on questioning United States officials

Archaeologists find remains of flatbread that predates agriculture by 4,000 years

Interested in Donald Trump? What happened was that the Russian authorities raided our offices, seized our documents and then stole the tax money.

This is not the first time Time magazine has poked at Trump on its cover.

"While the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels was an acknowledged triumph, with billions of dollars more being put up by member countries at a faster pace, the meeting with Russian Federation may prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success", Trump tweeted.

The latest gambit, on which the prosecutor general's office in Moscow elaborated Tuesday, would have Russian investigators attend interviews with a host of alleged Browder associates, including current and former State Department officials, a congressional aide and Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Russia. I have President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation. It's impossible to know. I want to focus on how we're going to ratchet down tensions. Ms Sanders said Mr Trump believed the threat from Russian Federation to undermine November's USA mid-term elections still existed and Moscow would still target American elections.

Ok, But What Did He Do This Week?

Brennan, who served as Central Intelligence Agency director from 2013 to 2017, issued a scathing tweet after Trump's Helsinki summit. Though Trump didn't mention Browder by name or endorse a swap that involved him, he did praise Putin's idea as "an incredible offer". "I don't see how they will let this go forward".

We don't know everything they discussed, because for a few hours they sat alone (with only their translators), and had a nice chinwag before emerging to face the world's press. "It is a deeply cynical dodge, in no way aimed at cooperation on the very serious matter of Russia's interference in our political system, which last Friday's indictments detail so powerfully".

The Trump administration is working to ensure that Russian Federation does not meddle in American elections as it did in the past, the White House said on Thursday.

"The president was flat out wrong", Michael Morell, former deputy and acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency said about Trump's remarks after the Cabinet meeting. At the time, Trump said he was doing so because he was under audit by the Internal Revenue Service. Because this time he's being condemned on all sides. McConnell, like many Republicans, stopped short of criticising Trump.

Trump Vows 'Tremendous Retribution' in Lieu of Fair EU Auto Trade
The Commission said Juncker and Trump will focus on improving transatlantic trade and forging a stronger economic partnership.

Fox News, which always backs the President, admitted that he'd got it wrong and needed to clarify his remarks immediately.

We heard from one supporter on today's show. Yet in a sign that he cannot fully accept those findings - seeing them as a challenge to his legitimacy - he added that it "could be other people also".

But Trump's supporters are still behind him.

In another tweet he is charging the media with preferring to go to war instead of him having a good relationship with Putin.

Treason would, obviously, meet the "high crimes and misdemeanours" standard needed to impeach a President.

"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or "why it wouldn't be Russia".

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said Trump needed to wake up to Russia's efforts to interfere in American elections. Lindsey Graham pointed to "a big discrepancy" between what they believed Trump said Wednesday and Coats' warning.

The explanation makes no sense.

"The summit itself was meaningless", the official said.
