Putin summit underway in Helsinki amid protests

Putin summit underway in Helsinki amid protests

There is a consensus that "Putin is not right, Trump is wrong, we believe our institutions, we trust in our democracy, Russian Federation did interfere, we will not trade facts for feelings of legitimacy, we will not trade our conscious for conspiracy", Cuomo said, and with so many Americans of all political stripes getting outraged, "Trump's luck ran out".

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan speaks with reporters during his weekly news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 21, 2018.

The conservative radio voice said he did not know whether to laugh or be angry at the "embarrassingly shallow and puerile, infantile questions" asked of President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki, Finland. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.

"We would like to get at least some sort of a document, evidence about it", Putin said.

Indeed, some domestic critics wanted the Helsinki summit called off entirely, after the 12 Russians were indicted by Mueller under a long-running probe into Moscow's alleged hacking of Democratic emails in a bid to drive Trump to victory.

"He [Putin] has basically lost it, emotionally, because his own money in the West is now being seized", Browder told the New York Times, an American newspaper, the same day.

Trump did not mention Russia's war in east Ukraine or its annexation of Crimea, however.

After all, that was the ultimate goal of Russia's election meddling, US officials have assessed.

He also did not mention Russia's use of a nerve toxin, called Novichok, to try to kill a former spy in the United Kingdom in March. "Amazingly, Trump stood next to him, appearing to nod approvingly", Browder wrote in an opinion piece published by Time.

The Russian president has developed a reputation for arriving late to meetings and he did not make an exception for Mr Trump. "He continued to maintain that it was illegal to annex it ... our viewpoint is different", the Russian leader said. "Trump just colluded with Russian Federation".

He was far softer than when he gored German leader Angela Merkel over the project at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit last week, however.

Democratic California Representative Jimmy Gomez charged: "To side with Putin over USA intelligence is disgusting; to fail to defend the United States is on the verge of treason". The Russian president will have noted with some satisfaction Trump's apparent efforts to undermine his country's transatlantic alliance, not least by castigating North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies for their inadequate defence spending and informing the German Chancellor that her country was "totally controlled" by Russia. "Russia Today and Sputnik did not behave as media organizations and journalists, but as agencies of influence and propaganda, lying propaganda - no more, no less", Macron said, standing next to Putin at a news conference. Borrowing a Mussolini gag, she described Trump's Russian Federation strategy to date: "If you pluck the chicken one feather at a time nobody will notice". However, that changed as of about four hours ago.

Russian prosecutors are pushing to question USA intelligence agents and a former ambassador to Moscow in their investigation of an influential foe of Vladimir Putin. "It's the same thing as the accusations with meddling into the election process in America". "I was asking myself when you are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that?"

May also told the BBC that the president had advised her not to walk away from the negotiations "because then you're stuck". However, in reiterating red lines she is unable to change the mood in her parliamentary group.
