Former intel chiefs condemn Trump’s news conference with Putin

Ahead of Trump-Putin meeting, lack of preparation leads to low expectations: Sources

Moscow has repeatedly slammed the deployment of United States missile systems in eastern Europe, while Washington has condemned Russia's alleged violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, under which the signatories are obliged to eliminate all short- and medium-range nuclear and conventional missiles.

With that in mind, a senior House of Representatives Republican told CBS's "Face the Nation" that Trump should ask Putin in Helsinki which airport the Russian hackers will be extradited to for being taken into US custody. "And third, President Trump should not agree to weaken, lift, or curtail any of the sanctions on Russian Federation".

The leaders were seen surveying the view from a small balcony before sitting down for breakfast.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Clinton expressed similar sentiment about the Trump-Putin relationship.

Trump condemns Russia probe after Putin talks

Mr Putin hopes the meeting, which comes hours after he presided over the World Cup final, will help him forge good personal ties with Mr Trump and focus on areas where Moscow and Washington may be able to find common ground, such as Syria.

A probe over allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election has clouded Trump's presidency.

On late Sunday night, Trump and his wife Melania arrived in Helsinki for the much-awaited summit with Putin.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Monday directly challenged comments by President Trump, saying the USA intelligence community has been "clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election".

Warner said that although Putin will not likely deliver those military intelligence agents to the United States, he wants Trump to ask for them. "Getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing".

President Donald Trump says the testimony of an FBI agent who was removed from the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation was "an absolute disgrace".

As you may be aware, Trump and Putin held their summit in Helsinki today. "But I really do want to see the server". While Trump was seen as hopeful about the meeting's outcome, Putin talked about the "problem areas of the world".

Hours after the summit had ended, Trump responded to some of the criticism with a tweet from Air Force One saying, "As I said today and many times before, 'I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.' However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!"

Putin said he is glad to meet his U.S. counterpart and wants to discuss with him relations between the two countries and global problems.

In his tweets, Trump continued to undermine the investigation, and blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for failing to stop Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election in Trump's favor. But this time, the source said, Trump told Putin the video was "outrageous".

Strzok was removed from the investigation following the discovery of anti-Trump text messages past year that he traded with an FBI lawyer in the run-up to the 2016 election.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned Trump against making any unilateral deals with Russian Federation that come with a cost for the United States' Western allies.

Trump spent the weekend in Scotland at his resort in Turnberry, golfing, tweeting and granting an interview to CBS News in which he named the European Union, a bloc of nations that includes many of America's closest allies, at the top of his list of biggest global foes.

Wimbledon final: Serena shocked, Kerber pumped
Serena Williams is one win away from an eighth Wimbledon singles title that would complete a fairytale return to tennis . Kerber, a finalist at Wimbledon just two years ago, and a two-time Slam victor , should be a much tougher test.

President Donald Trump is describing the European Union as a "foe" in an interview taped in Scotland. But in an interview for ABC's This Week programme, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said he found it "hard to believe" that Mr Putin did not know about the alleged hacking.

After meeting privately with Putin for two hours in Helsinki, Trump said he held both the United States and Russian Federation responsible for the deterioration in relations between the two countries.

USA TODAY is providing live coverage of the summit in the player above.

Democratic lawmakers have urged Trump to cancel Monday's meeting with Putin in Helsinki after a grand jury convened by special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence agents for hacking into the emails of Democratic campaign officials in the 2016 election.
