Russian election meddling targeted both parties, Homeland Security chief says

"But that is the president's prerogative", Coats added.

Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

It wasn't until more than 24 hours after the press conference that Trump took back his initial remarks, blaming a grammatical glitch as he read from a prepared statement: "The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation".

Nielsen's remarks come amid backlash that has engulfed Trump since he said at the Helsinki summit that he accepted Russian President Vladimir Putin's denial of election interference over USA intelligence findings.

When Mariia Butina was indicted on conspiracy charges Monday, her name wasn't new to the House Intelligence Committee. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told ABC Radio Australia on Thursday the two leaders "broke some ground across a broad range" of issues. "Yes I did, because he talked about bringing the U.S. -Russia relationship back to normal".

"It is our responsibility as leaders of United States government to do all that we can to deter them from interfering with us, not only in our elections, but more broadly as well". But then he appears to change his mind, telling reporters "we're doing very well" and that "there's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russian Federation".

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says House Speaker Paul Ryan should make it clear that Russian President Vladimir Putin won't be invited to address Congress if he comes to Washington.

Appearing on Fox News earlier in the week, McDaniel had offered her support for the President's appearance with Putin and his policy toward Russian Federation generally. "I think anybody who thinks that Vladimir Putin doesn't have his stamp on everything that happens in Russian Federation is misinformed", he said. "And they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy". That assessment has been supported by multiple members of Trump's own administration.

During the interview, Alexander asked if Nielsen could clarify remarks she made earlier in the year regarding the USA intelligence consensus that Russia's attempts at interference were specifically in favor of Donald Trump.

Nevertheless, some Republican lawmakers expressed concern and alarm in light of the President's remarks. Rep.

"I do not believe that I've seen that conclusion that the specific intent was to help President Trump win", Nielsen told reporters at the time. I have President Putin.

In a stunning interview U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen falsely suggests there are two sides to violent white supremacy, and is advocating for a "both sides" approach.

The timing of the visit would coincide with the lead-up to Election Day, with the balance of power in Washington at stake.

While Trump and Putin had met privately on three occasions in 2017, Trump opened the door to a potential White House meeting with him earlier this year. We have the homegrown extremists, whatever camp they fall in.
