Why did Trump say he had no interest in Russian Federation despite trying very hard even during his presidential campaign to build a hotel in Moscow?
His national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, stated clearly after the indictment's release: "The evidence is now really incontrovertible and available in the public domain" that the Russians tried to sway the election result and undermine Americans' trust in their democratic system.
A special counsel is now investigating Russia's election meddling and possible collusion with Trump associates, in addition to whether the president obstructed the investigation.
WASHINGTON-The Trump administration on Wednesday disputed criticism that it is going easy on Russian Federation, detailing what senior officials described as a year of efforts to counter Moscow's interference in the US elections and interventions in Ukraine and Syria.
But once he began watching TV at his Florida estate on Friday, the president's mood began to darken as it became clearer to him that some commentators were portraying the indictment as nothing for him to celebrate, according to a New York Times report citing three people with knowledge of his reaction.
The President of the United States Donald trump fully recognizes that Russian Federation has not only tried to interfere, but, in fact, intervened and influenced the election of the President of the United States in 2016.
After the USA presidential election was over, Obama issued sanctions against nine Russian individuals and entities for election meddling. Trump tweeted. "Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?"
Pakistan not on FATF's terror financing watch-list, public announcements reveal
However, the list, called "jurisdictions with strategic deficiencies" available on FATF's website, does not include Pakistan. He told reporters that US President Donald Trump is not "satisfied with progress when it comes to Pakistan".
We don't know the impact, but we do know Obama did retaliate by throwing a lot of Russian diplomats out of the country and confiscating two of their choice properties. The other is closer to - what's the term I'm looking for? - fake news.
The Obama administration did take some actions toward Russian Federation before the election, but its most significant retaliatory measure came after Trump's victory.
Millions of people, online and offline, had interactions with people they believed to be Americans who were actually Russians, bots created by them or actual Americans unwittingly paid by Russians.
Under President Trump, the USA has closed Russia's San Francisco consulate last August and imposed new sanctions against a key ally of President Vladimir Putin, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, said a panel of senior officials charged with oversight of the administration's Russian Federation strategy at Wednesday's briefing.
While many sarcastically questioned who was the new character at the receiving end of Trump's fiery criticism, others poked fun at the president for misspelling the name of one of his top officials. Rivera said on Twitter on Sunday that he had seen firsthand that the president "was deeply affected" by the time he had spent with victims, "impressed by their courage" and "equally distressed by the savagery of their wounds". Lloyd Bentsen (D-Texas) and former Rep. Bill Alexander (D-Ark.), who was chief deputy majority whip of the U.S. House of Representatives. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
"And to me, you know, there's a valuable question here about what did we know, when did we know it?" he said. But no evidence has emerged of Democrats potentially being in cahoots with Russian Federation during the campaign.
Trump has often spoken glowingly about Putin, predicting that they would have a great relationship.
If such matters are not treated in an unbiased manner, we are not a nation of equality under the law, but a banana republic masquerading as a democracy.
