He's been doing a very good job.
U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told a congressional committee in February that he already had seen evidence Russian Federation was targeting U.S. elections in November, when Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate are at stake, plus a host of positions in state governments. "It better not be".
Democrats say the woman who translated for Trump - and the notes she likely took - could provide critical information about the meeting. Will a strong statement, you know, President Obama supposedly made a strong statement, nobody heard it, what they did hear is the statement he made to Putin's very close friend.
"I'll take a back seat to no one in the United States Senate on challenging what happened at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, what happened in Helsinki", said Corker, who is retiring this year rather than seeking re-election. I think that [CIA Director] Gina [Haspel] is excellent.
While Trump was not entirely without defenders, the bipartisan consensus was broadly hostile to his stance in Helsinki - as the top Republican in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan made clear at a press conference Tuesday on Capitol Hill. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC, said he was happy to hear that Sanders had clarified Trump's comment.
But while the United States leader expressed his "full faith and support for America´s great intelligence agencies", he insisted that "Russia´s actions had no impact at all on the outcome of the election". It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome! Trump reluctantly signed the bill but blasted its content, saying at the time it "improperly encroaches on executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies".
But the USA president found precious little support for his decision not to confront the Russian leader - on either side of the political aisle.
HORSLEY: It sounds like sort of typical Trumpian hyperbole, but some analysts I've talked with say it's not without foundation.

Scaramucci: Trump Must 'Reverse Course' After Putin Meeting
A wide array of Republican and Democratic lawmakers condemned Trump's position, calling it embarrassing , a disgrace and shameful. Trump sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity for a softball interview following the summit in Helsinki .
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump said "no" when asked if Russian Federation is still targeting the United States, again contradicting USA intelligence officials.
But at a later news briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president was saying "no" to answering questions not to the question itself.
At the start of a Cabinet meeting, a reporter asked, "Is Russia still targeting the U.S., Mr. President?"
Sheppard and Bostjancic represent the mixed views among former members of the US military to Trump's comments: Some say they are a betrayal, with the commander in chief giving more credence to Putin's word than to the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies and creating a hardship for those who serve and put their lives on the line. Remarkably, Trump continued to show his fear of Putin when Glor gave him a chance to say Putin lied.
He added: "Some people hate the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russian Federation".
The new Times report came after Trump was criticized by many, including Republican lawmakers, for apparently siding with Moscow at a joint press conference with Putin on Monday.
And he again floated the idea that "other people" could be involved. "There are lots of people out there".
