Maddow doesn’t relent on White House transcript

American External affairs minister

In this July 16, 2018, file photo, U.S. President Donald Trump, left, and Russian President Vladimir Putin arrive for a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland.

But lawmakers from both parties have continued to criticize him over his actions there, including siding with Putin over US intelligence agencies over the Kremlin's 2016 election interference campaign.

"I have tremendous faith in you, I think you're a patriot. but it's the president's actions that create tremendous distrust in our nation", the committee's Republican chairman, Bob Corker, told Pompeo.

In his testimony, Pompeo faced often-contentious questioning from senators demanding information about what Trump discussed with Putin while they were alone for almost two hours with only translators present.

Corker also criticized comments by Trump that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was "very talented" and that "he loves his people", given the country's serious human rights abuses.

Trump took heat for initially appearing to accept Putin's denial of meddling in the 2016 US election.

Rubio is part of the Senate Intelligence Committee and urges the U.S.to prevent future attacks from Russian intelligence, citing that the discoveries made by Robert Mueller and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are "100 percent accurate".

Russian Federation will therefore be the primary focus of Mr Pompeo's appearance before the committee. It's even possible they fear that Trump will try to make up for his toadying behavior at the first event by going all Barbarossa on their leader and ruining their budding alliance with the U.S.

"I don't know what happened", Coats added, when asked about Putin's meetings with Trump in Helsinki.

Assad regime blocks White Helmets evacuation
Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said the total number of evacuees was 422, even though the initial request was to evacuate 800. The White Helmets "used to see death while doing our work saving lives from underneath airstrikes and barrel bombs".

National security adviser John Bolton said the meeting, which USA officials initially planned to have in August, would be delayed.

The statement came as the USA announced that it has no intention of recognizing Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula and will not drop its economic sanctions against Moscow until Crimea is returned to Kyiv's control.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday afternoon to answer questions about what Trump and Putin discussed in their two-hour private meeting.

In a "Crimea Declaration" issued shortly before his testimony to a Senate committee, Pompeo restated US policy rejecting the annexation.

"You seem to be giving a great deal of credit to the Russian Ministry of Defense", Mr. Pompeo shot back. "We heard nothing new", the Russian embassy said in a statement on Facebook.

The user will reportedly have to hold the ball close to their mobile devices, and using the chip they can reportedly watch player videos, take part in competitions and get their hands on several other kinds of content.

A new Quinnipiac University poll said Americans believe, by a 51 to 35 percent margin, "that the Russian government has compromising information about President Trump".

President Trump's top diplomat faced withering questions from lawmakers Wednesday about the president's ability to steer USA foreign policy and his lack of transparency, as the White House scrambled to present a tougher stance toward Russian Federation.
