Russia Will Support Democrats in US Congressional Elections

US President Donald Trump has chose to postpone the next meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin until sometime in 2019, after the "Russia witch hunt" ends, national security adviser John Bolton said.

In another worrying trend for Mr Trump, the poll revealed rising support for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the United States 2016 election.

Last week, the White House announced that Trump had asked Bolton to invite Putin to Washington in the fall for a follow-up meeting to their summit in Helsinki this month.

Last night Rachel Maddow questioned the White House omitting a key exchange from the Trump-Putin press conference.

Manchester United's Jose Mourinho wants two more new signings
Manchester United fans have been wondering when the club's transfer activity is going to kick into gear this summer. But, the most important thing to (Mourinho) is results, he will be judged on that.

Trump has repeatedly called Mueller's probe into meddling in the 2016 election a "witch hunt", a claim that he repeated in a tweet the same day he met with Putin in Helsinki.

The Kremlin, meanwhile, was reticent on Tuesday about whether it would accept an invitation from Mr Trump to hold a summit with Mr Putin in Washington later this year, saying only that the two men had other chances to meet.

Mr Trump has always been seeking to bring Mr Putin to Washington for a meeting. "President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation".

Trump faced intense criticism after the press conference, during which he appeared to support Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denial of subverting the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"I'm one who thinks that it's a good thing for leaders of countries to talk", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, told reporters this week when asked about a second Trump-Putin summit. Many on both sides of the aisle have criticized the USA president for his remarks during the press conference that followed their private meeting.

The centre-half has only recently returned from a thigh injury suffered in April that ended his 2017-18 season. Then as soon as the deal was done Jurgen Klopp was saying the same things; don't expect any more arrivals.

Still, Trump's tweet Tuesday is the US president's firmest confirmation to date of ongoing Russian attempts to interfere in the USA democratic process.

Two-thirds of Americans - 69 percent - also think Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 US presidential election.

"We will not be doing anything additional until the Secretary of State (Mike Pompeo) and the president have further figured out at what point we are going to start working, alongside our allies, with Russian Federation in the future", Mattis said at a press conference in California.

Trump, who goes back and forth about what he accepts about the years-long campaign of "active measures" against the West, now says the cyberattacks, online agitation and other techniques could be turned against him and Republicans in the 2018 congressional races.

In his testimony, Pompeo faced often-contentious questioning from senators demanding information about what Trump discussed with Putin while they were alone for almost two hours with only translators present.
