Pompeo to Testify About Trump's Summits

The ball is in Russia’s court’ Pompeo on Moscow Washington relations

After their joint news conference in Helsinki, Russia media also took some swipes at USA journalists for focusing on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election that brought Trump to power.

In a hastily called White House gathering of reporters, Trump said he has full faith in the US intelligence agencies and their assertion that Russian Federation tampered with the 2016 election.

Trump told reporters on Tuesday that he has "full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies".

Trump said on Tuesday he had complete faith in USA intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions, although he insisted Russia's actions had no impact on the outcome.

Trump and Putin "spent a great deal of time" discussing allegations of Russian election meddling as they met for several hours Monday, the US president said.

Trump said Monday at a joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki that he didn't "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be responsible for the election meddling.

They added that Trump's "cursory description" of the meeting did not assuage their concerns and "we as a nation must now wonder exactly what you discussed and may have promised to President Putin".

US Vice President Mike Pence and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo together urged US President Donald Trump to make clear his position on Russian interference in the 2016 elections after Trump drew a storm of criticism for apparently clearing Moscow of wrongdoing.

The president framed his remarks as a clarification, but Albright said she is still unclear on how he feels about Russian Federation or whether he believes Putin.

Their relationship soured further a year ago, when Trump took the advice of his national security advisers and chose to commit more resources and time to the war in Afghanistan, launch strikes against government targets in Syria, and step up defense spending to unprecedented levels.

And then, because Trump was not buying any of this script he was reading, he added, extemporaneously: "It could be other people also".

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., added there is "no question" Russian Federation interfered in the election, citing findings by the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. President Putin is going to be involved in the sense that he is with us.

"What we're all anxious about coming out of this summit is that Putin is going to feel emboldened", Hampson said.

However, the average approval rating for Trump's treatment remained low, at 42 percent of registered voters.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Hurd, who is a former CIA officer and member of the House Intelligence Committee, if he trusted Trump's ability to speak on behalf of United States interests.

McConnell says there is "indisputable evidence" Russian Federation tried to affect the 2016 presidential election.

Asked specifically about Trump's comments during Monday's joint news conference with Putin, Trudeau replied: "We condemn Russian Federation and the way that Russian Federation engages in global affairs".

Russia's state-run Channel One said Trump's meetings in Britain and his contentious appearance at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit last week were secondary to Monday's summit, saying: "After all, he was just passing through Brussels and London on the way to Helsinki".

Rep. Bruce Poliquin, a Republican who represents Maine's 2nd District and is up for re-election in November, made perhaps his most forceful statement to date about Russia's interference but did not criticize the president directly. In practice, the overwhelming majority of Democrats and close to 20 Republican senators would have to vote to convict President Trump, an equation that will barely change after the midterms because Republicans are expected to retain their majority in the upper chamber.
