Rudy Giuliani touts Russian hacking indictments as 'good news for all Americans'

Steven Clarke | 14 July, 2018, 09:49

Reed, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said a "stunning indictment" announced Friday against a dozen Russians for election-related offenses should precipitate calling off Trump's summit.

Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

The charges come as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin were slated to meet over the coming days in Finland. The ministry says "obviously, the goal of this is to spoil the atmosphere" before Monday's summit between President Vladimir Putin and President Trump in Helsinki, Finland. "And, today, Special Counsel Mueller indicted twelve Russian military officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee - a direct attack on our democracy".

"President Trump's continued refusal to condemn the Russians' attacks on our democracy, even after Special Counsel Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for interfering in the 2016 election, makes it clear that meeting with Putin would be both pointless and unsafe", Pelosi said.

I dont "believe" Putin interfered in our elections I know for a fact he did.

Barcelona eye Kante deal with Andre Gomes included
According to " Sky Sports Italy" Barcelona have made an offer for the Chelsea midfielder, with a cash-plus-player offer. Following the departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho, Barcelona are desperate to snatch N'Golo Kante from Chelsea .

Rosenstein said the president had been briefed on the charges earlier this week. "We should stand united against Putin's past and planned future attacks against us".

"I will absolutely bring that up. I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here I don't think", he continued.

Trump himself said he would "firmly ask the question" today but added he doubts Putin would just cop to it in front of him.

After the indictments were announced, Democrats were quick to urge Trump to cancel the meeting.

"These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin's government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy,"McCain said in a statement on Friday". Warner also called on the president and his allies to "immediately cease and desist from calling the Mueller investigation 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.
