McCain: Trump's meeting with Putin 'should not move forward'

The top Democrat in the Senate is calling on President Donald Trump to cancel his coming meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin in the wake of new charges that 12 Russian intelligence officers hacked into Democratic email accounts during the 2016 USA presidential election.

President Donald Trump has already scripted out his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin when he brings up election meddling - and he's not predicting a courtroom thriller.

"If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward", he added. "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think, but you never know what happens, right?" "He needs to understand what evidence we have of foreign election interference". He may deny it, ' Trump said.

The fresh indictments related to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe come amid Trump's United Kingdom visit, and just hours after he once again called the investigation a "witch hunt".

The indictments come just days before the president is scheduled to hold a summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

"I think that we're being hurt very badly by the rigged witch hunt", Trump told reporters Friday during a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May".

So how does Rosenberg advise President Trump to approach his upcoming meeting with Putin?

But less than three hours later, the California Democrat joined the chorus of party members calling for the meeting to be canceled.

Rosenstein said he had briefed President Trump on the indictment earlier this week, adding that although Americans corresponded with the indicted Russians, in this case no Americans knowingly conspired with Russian intelligence officers. "Putin is not a friend of democracy". After meeting with the Russian leader in November 2017, Trump said of Russia's meddling, "Every time he sees me he says, 'I didn't do that, ' and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it".

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. "And he replied 'Because of the Mueller investigation.' No Mr. President, the reason why relations with Russian Federation are hard is because Russian Federation and its agents interfered dramatically in the 2016 elections". Schiff said on CNN that Trump should "cut his losses on this disastrous trip to Europe" and return without engaging with the Russian leader.

"Failure to stand up to Putin would constitute a profound betrayal of the Constitution and our democracy", Pelosi said in a statement.
