Vladimir Putin Personally Responsible For Election Meddling: Donald Trump

Bill Browder, whose actions standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin led to the Magnitsky Act, was called out in Wednesday's White House press briefing over the possibility of President Trump allowing Russia to question USA officials.

Mr Trump appeared to clash with his spy chiefs again yesterday when he said that Russian Federation was no longer targeting American elections.

Other GOP senators pushed back on the idea that Russian Federation is no longer targeting the U.S. Senate intelligence committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., when asked whether there was any doubt that Russian Federation was still targeting upcoming U.S. elections, responded "none", adding Trump "ought to look at the intelligence".

But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said later on Wednesday that Mr Trump was responding "no" to further questions from reporters.

When asked whether there were concerns about the president's credibility given Trump's reversal of his remarks about Russian Federation on Tuesday, Sanders was quick to note she wasn't clarifying anything on Wednesday.

One user said Melania "was the only one in the room who understands how unsafe this man actually is", referring to Putin.

Late last week at a Washington, D.C., think tank, Coats was even more blunt than he was in his statement Monday, according to CNBC.

"Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack", he said.

During a news conference after Monday's summit, Mr Trump was asked about alleged Russian meddling in the USA election.

"And I think President Putin knows that better than anybody", Trump said.

Mainly reading from a prepared statement, Trump said on Tuesday he had complete faith in US intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions. 'I have President Putin - he just said it's not Russian Federation.

It comes after Putin suggested at the Helsinki summit that he would let USA investigators be present for questioning of 12 Russian intelligence officers charged last Friday on allegations they carried out cyber attacks to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election if Russians could do the same in America for people connected to money manager Bill Browder, a one-time investor in Russia. In an email to Trump Jr., he described the information as "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a very vocal opponent of Donald Trump ever since he began his presidential campaign. "There are lots of people out there".

Republicans and Democrats accused him of siding with an adversary rather than his own country.

But Trump dismissed Coats' strong words in his Monday press conference with Putin. "We want to see the notes", Senator Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told MSNBC.

Asked in an interview with CBS if he held Mr Putin responsible for the interference, Mr Trump replied: "Well, I would, because he's in charge of the country".

Russia has a list of people it wants to question over the alleged $1.5 billion tax evasion on funds gained from Russian investments, including by the wealthy Ziff brothers, a spokesman for the Russian Prosecutor General's Office, Alexander Kurennoy, said Tuesday.

Sanders denied that was what the White House was doing.

He also offered a twisted explanation of his assertion in Helsinki that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere, claiming he misspoke.
