“Because there is no rule of law, as I said, in Russian Federation”. They spoke one-on-one for more than two hours and then held expanded negotiations.
There has been no word from Russian Federation about a second Trump-Putin meeting.
Two Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday called for Gross to be interviewed before Congress in relation to the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki. Jackson also noted that there were many people in the room who believed Trump was answering the question when he said “no”.
The news comes as the USA director of national intelligence Dan Coats revealed that he does not know what was said between the two leaders during their one-on-one meeting. “That’s going to be special”.
The invitation comes as the White House has faced a tumultuous week in the aftermath of Trump’s controversial summit with Putin in Helsinki. He just said it’s not Russian Federation. As if to underline that point, plans are already under way for a sequel – this time in Washington DC.
In a possible dig at Trump’s erratic presidency, Putin touted Russia’s “consistent, responsible, independent foreign policy”.
The president campaigned on closer ties with Russian Federation, a goal that had been thwarted during his first year in office.
Trump and Putin met in Helsinki, Finland on Monday.
Russian politicians are rallying behind Vladimir Putin and denouncing American suggestions that the translator at his meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump be interrogated about what they discussed privately.

Sanders said Trump believes the threat from Russian Federation to undermine November’s USA midterm elections still exists and that Moscow would still target American elections.
Jackson asked Sanders to name a time when Trump has publicly called out Russian President Vladimir Putin. She said the USA hopes Putin will have the indicted Russians “come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt”.
The US leader later said he misspoke when he appeared to take Putin’s denial of interference at face value and said he accepted the US intelligence community’s view that Moscow sought to influence the 2016 vote.
The decision to meet with Putin alone was broadly criticized, as the president’s opponents felt he could not be trusted to speak privately with the Russian leader.
