Adam Schiff: Helsinki Talks 'Productive...For Vladimir Putin'

23 July 2018

"I think there's no ignoring the fact that, for whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised".

Putin has denied that Russian Federation tried to influence the 2016 presidential election after the U.S. intelligence community concluded Russian Federation interfered through cyber attacks and social media in a bid to boost Trump's candidacy.

We often take it for granted that the greater a country's economic and military resources, the greater its influence. Trump and Putin held a joint press conference at their summit Monday where it seemed Trump accepted Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denials of Russian government election interference over the conclusion of every USA intelligence agency.

During the press conference, Trump said, "My people came to me, Dan Coats, came to me and some others they said they think it's Russian Federation".

He said that he believes Trump has entered into a secret deal with Putin, and elaborated on his thought process.

The situation became worse confounded when a United States official said, "Our relationship with Russian Federation and our positions are the same today as they were on the 15th".

"They did not spy on the campaign from anything and everything that I have seen", Rubio said.

Even some Trump voters who felt overall positively about the summit added that, in the words of one, the president "could have said what he did in a better way".

Legal analysts noted that intelligence agents had good reason to suspect Page had a relationship with Russia, and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation found much of the dossier to be credible; they noted that four judges, all appointed by Republicans, signed off on the Page warrant and that Mueller recently obtained indictments on a dozen Russian intelligence officials on charges of election sabotage. I'm going to assume that he just didn't notice that, within a few short weeks in February and March 2016, four people who were already financially entangled with Russian and pro-Russian interests "volunteered" for his campaign.

Last Monday was one of the most depressing days of my life, up there with watching Gov. Asa Hutchinson declare that Donald Trump was "the right leader for our time" and the night that a confessed sexual predator who ran a scam university and belittled POWs won enough Electoral College votes to become president. "They didn't agree on anything, unlike what has been reported by apparently the Russian government in a way to mislead us", Bossert added.

Trump spent days trying to reassure the country that he accepts that the longtime foe interfered in the 2016 election after his public undermining of USA intelligence agencies in Helsinki while standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin.

USA officials have not described any substantial agreements and have given few details about talks at the summit, which included a one-on-one meeting with only interpreters present, leaving critics of Trump concerned that he may have made unwise deals. "The reality is, we have no idea what this president, our president, agreed to", Schiff said. "The Kremlin intelligence agents know exactly what took place in that meeting".

Graham, citing the president's top intelligence chief Dan Coats, said that the "red light is blinking" and that he needs to "sit down with Congress and the administration and you lead this nation to hardening the 2018 election process before it's too late".

Clinton said failure to officially record the meeting gave Putin the opportunity to put out press releases about what was accomplished and spin the results however he'd like while, she said, "we're hearing crickets" from the White House.
