IN Focus: Indiana politicians come to Coats' defense after Russian Federation summit

IN Focus: Indiana politicians come to Coats' defense after Russian Federation summit

"When you hear the Fake News talking negatively about my meeting with President Putin, and all that I gave up, remember, I gave up NOTHING", Trump said on Twitter.

'Also, we got along very well, which is a good thing, except for the Corrupt Media!' the president added.

Found a spelling error? By way of comparison, in the Post-Schar School survey, 87 percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump's overall job performance as president.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was responding to Trump's apparent acceptance during a news conference last week of Putin's denial that Russian Federation attempted influence the 2016 election. He was quoting a conservative activist on Fox News.

That's mostly thanks to Republicans, 88 percent of whom approved of Trump's performance - the highest Republican percentage of his presidency so far. One source said there was a belief that if Mr Coats had been in Washington instead of Colorado, he would not have been surprised by the news.

Despite the fierce criticism, Trump has extended an invitation for Putin to visit Washington for a second meeting this autumn. Instead, he directed his ire at Democrats and US officials, calling special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference a "disaster" and a "witch hunt". Over the weekend, Trump zeroed in on release of a foreign intelligence search warrant regarding campaign aide Carter Page, claiming is it is evidence that the Barack Obama administration "spied" on his campaign using information from a politically motivated "dossier" of information about Trump and the Russians.

Trump subsequently said he misspoke, but has not acknowledged that he repeatedly put the United States intelligence community's assessment and Putin's denials on the same footing.

In my mind, it signals clearly to the Russians that there will be no consequences for this kind of interference, which undermines our effort to deter them from intervening in future elections.

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.' Sort of a double negative", he said.

Barletta also sounded different than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said "the European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not" following a trip in which Trump also harshly criticized traditional allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit over what Trump called "delinquent" defense spending. "There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin, former KGB officer, rather than his own intelligence agencies".
