Trump invites Putin to WHPresident Donald Trump hopes to welcome Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington this fall, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Thursday.

"President Trump asked (national security adviser John Bolton) to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway," Sanders tweeted Thursday, hours after Trump tweeted he is "looking forward" to meeting again with Putin to "begin implementing" issues they discussed during their summit earlier this week.

Trump knew of Putin's election meddling 2 weeks before inauguration: report

Trump knew of Putin's election meddling

President Trump has known his Russian counterpart had pulled the trigger on the Kremlin election meddling plot since before he was sworn into office, according to a report Wednesday.

Two weeks before his inauguration, Trump was handed classified documents indicating President Vladimir Putin ordered the massive hack job that cast doubt on his victory, The New York Times reported.

'Absurd, crazy': Trump discussed allowing Putin to interrogate US ambassador

Ambassador Michael McFaul

The White House has declined to rule out accepting a Russian proposal for the questioning in the United States of Americans, including former US ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul, sought by the Kremlin for “illegal activities”.

The proposal arose at Monday’s summit between the US president Donald Trump and the Russian president Vladimir Putin, and any decision by Washington to assist with an adversary’s prosecution of former government employees overseas would be a stunning shift in US policy, especially as it could violate the international legal principle of diplomatic immunity.


Trump keeps saying his father was born in Germany – he wasn't

Trump and dadLike any wise leader, Donald Trump knows bad news should always be followed with a compliment.

So perhaps that was why, in a recent interview in which he threatened to impose tariffs on European countries that did business with Iran and said the EU was “possibly as bad as China, just smaller”, the president added a touching personal detail.

It was one that spoke of his emotional attachment to the continent he was trashing.

“I was there many, many years ago,” he said. “Meaning, my parents were born in the European Union. I love these countries; Germany, Scotland, they are still in there right?”


Judge Denies Bail To Alleged Russian Agent Maria Butina

Maria Butina denied bail, is flight riskA federal judge on Wednesday denied bail to Maria Butina, the 29-year-old Russian national arrested in Washington this weekend and charged with conspiring to influence American politics while covertly serving as an agent of the Russian government.

Butina pleaded not guilty to all charges and was ordered to be held in jail pending trial.

The hearing came hours after federal prosecutors released documents arguing that Butina constituted a flight risk, citing among other factors, her recent “intention to move money outside of the United States” and indications that she was preparing to move out of her residence, as well as her alleged “ties to the Russian Intelligence Services” and other Russian billionaires.


Trump: 'No,' Russia is not targeting the United States

Trump says NO

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that Russia is no longer targeting the United States with cyber attacks, a conclusion that is at odds with the one repeatedly asserted by Trump's own intelligence services.

During a meeting of his Cabinet on Wednesday, Trump was asked by a pool reporter whether Russia is still "targeting" the United States.

"No," said the president.

Dan Coats, Trump's director of national intelligence, had a very different assessment as recently as Monday, however, saying in a statement, "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy."
