Trump Should Cancel Putin Summit Over Indictments, Democrats Say

Trump Seemed To Exhibit Multiple Personalities At NATO Summit

"Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made no statement immediately after the indictments were announced at the Justice Department.

Trump then appeared to contradict himself by saying "fortunately we tend to record stories now, so we have it for your enjoyment", adding "it's called fake news", although it isn't clear how an audio recording of his interview could be fake news.

Despite a tumultuous North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, Trump said the 29 member states reached consensus in touting what he described as commitments by those other countries to increase their defense spending.

The announcement of the indictments came at the same time as Trump arrived for his much-anticipated meeting with Queen Elizabeth II during his London visit.

Herald Group Vice President of Public Affairs Sabrina Schaeffer and Daily Caller News Foundation Editor-in-Chief Chris Bedford on the indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers as part of the Mueller investigation. According to Glasser, "Beyond the allure of aggrandizement and the mystery of President Trump's affinity for the Russian strongman, why the meeting is taking place now remains a mystery".

Podesta said in an interview that he wouldn't call on Trump to cancel the meeting with Putin.

"If the president leaves the Putin meeting without ironclad assurances and concrete steps toward a full cessation of Russian attacks on our democracy, this meeting will not only be a failure - it will be a grave step backward for the future of the global order", they said. "They're going to up it at levels that they never thought of before", Trump said.

"After that the presidents will give assessment to the talks at a joint news conference, in the course of which each of them will make an address to the audience and will answer four questions - two from the Russian side and two from the American side", Ushakov said. But he predicted Putin wouldn't confess.

Second Phase Of Thailand Rescue Pulls 4 More Boys From Cave
Monsoon rain is forecast to lash down on Monday evening, which could raise the water levels in the cave, hampering rescue efforts. The rescued boys were being treated by medics at the field hospital, and were later airlifted to a larger nearby hospital.

A USA official said Trump would be ready to talk about New Start if Putin raised it, but it was not a big US priority. I think it's a bad thing that you have a pipeline that stretches from Russian Federation.

Kremlin critics at home and overseas see Trump's decision to grant Putin a summit against that backdrop as conferring global legitimacy and status on Putin, something they say he doesn't deserve given the lack of meaningful change in Russia's policies internationally.

While Republican Trump has gone softer on Putin, calling him a "competitor" and "not my enemy" on Thursday, lawmakers from both parties hardened their warnings to Trump before he sits down with the Russian leader in Helsinki on Monday. A diligent press corps is trying to force Trump to say what he will do or say when he meets his Russian chum.

Earlier Friday, Trump said he would question Putin about Russia's election meddling when the two meet in Helsinki.

"Hopefully, someday, maybe he'll be a friend", Trump added. "It could happen", Trump said.

While the main topics of conversation will be foreign policy and Russian interference in 2016 as Vice President Mike Pence confirmed, other subjects such as Russia's support of the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the 2014 annexation of Crimea region of Ukraine may also be discussed, as reported in Time.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will also hold their first meeting in Helsinki during the summit.

Warner went on to urge the Trump administration to stop calling the Mueller probe a "witch hunt".

Two Foreign Affairs Democrats, ranking member Eliot L. Engel of NY and Ted Lieu of California, joined House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith, Rep.
