Russian envoy: Moscow open to Putin visit to Washington

Bennie Garza | 20 July, 2018, 23:54

The White House on Friday had to douse another political fire resulting from the Helsinki summit after a Russian official said Vladimir Putin and President Trump discussed a possible referendum in eastern Ukraine during their private powwow.

"I don't know what happened in that meeting", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said.

Top U.S. intelligence officials have said Moscow is targeting congressional elections in November as well. 'That's going to be special, ' he said, to laughs from an audience at a forum.

The ambassador said Russian Federation is ready to discuss a proposed new meeting between Putin and Trump, Interfax said.

Trump mentioned Coats by name in his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, then sided with Putin's "powerful" denial of election meddling over Coats' admonition that Russia interfered and there were warning lights flashing red.

In a television interview taped on Thursday, Trump said that he and Putin, who USA intelligence agencies say directed interference to sway the 2016 vote toward Trump, had a rapport during their Helsinki meeting.

Coats said he would have advised Trump not to meet Putin alone and hoped Trump would have "made a different statement".

Ms Sanders said "those discussions are already under way" for an autumn meeting between the two presidents.

When is Putin visiting Trump in USA?

Mr Trump flagged that he would have a second meeting with Mr Putin but did not give any details about when or where it would happen. Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, said Thursday the idea sets a risky precedent that threats the "the whole idea of diplomacy", according to Russian news agencies.

"A year and a half into his presidency, Trump's puzzling affinity for Putin has yet to be explained", Bennett wrote.

Trump sat down with CBS News anchor Jeff Glor and affirmed that he thinks Russian Federation meddled in the election. He said: "The two presidents, as it seemed to me, talked very openly, genuinely, spoke about their concerns and tried to find common ground".

"In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't".

On Thursday, Sanders said in a statement that Trump disagreed with the proposal.

'I think we will learn more.

At the same forum in Colorado, deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein released a 156-page report detailing a strategy to combat future attempts by foreign governments to influence USA elections, including by revealing them to the public.

The commander of USA forces in the Middle East said Thursday he had not received new guidance from the Pentagon on cooperating with Russian Federation in Syria.

Trump reportedly asked Putin not to announce the proposal at the summit's press conference in order to have time to consider it, according to one of the sources. And that it was important to take that stand on behalf of the Intelligence Community and on behalf of the American people'.
