National GOP reluctant to weigh in on Trump's Russia swirl

President Trump posts old video of Hillary Clinton on Russia, she fires back

Top aides gathered to convince the president to issue a rare walk-back of the comments he'd made raising doubts about USA intelligence conclusions of Russian election interference as he stood alongside Vladimir Putin.

As for Putin's offer on investigations, Sanders it was "made in sincerity" and the USA hopes he will have the indicted Russians "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt".

"President Putin has visited the White House before".

Trump had praised the proposal on Monday as an "incredible offer" and Sanders later described it as an "interesting idea" that was being discussed internally.

A White House National Security Council spokesman said later the United States on Friday rejected a proposal from Russian Federation for a referendum to decide the fate of eastern Ukraine.

Trump sided with Putin over the United States intelligence community on the subject of Russian election interference during a press conference in Helsinki on Monday, only to walk back on his statements upon returning to the US.

"Look, we've been doing it in other peoples' elections", Ash said, contending that President Barack Obama tried to interfere in Israel's 2015 elections.

The statement also said the USA has given more than $1 billion to Ukraine since conflict broke out there following the annexation of Crimea by Russian Federation in 2014.

"President Trump asked Ambassador Bolton today to invite President Putin to Washington in the Fall to follow up on and review the two sides' progress on the issues they discussed in Helsinki", the NSC official told Brennan. Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary claimed this, according to Reuters.

Since then, Trump has said he misspoke and that he holds Putin responsible for election interference.

"This issue (of a referendum) was discussed", Antonov said, adding that Putin made "concrete proposals" to Trump on solutions for the four-year, Russian-backed insurgency in eastern Ukraine, which has killed more than 10,000 people. That resolution had the support of Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake.

Arizona committeeman Bruce Ash echoed Trump's efforts to play down Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, suggesting that America hasn't always behaved properly, either. I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be. but I have confidence in both parties. He went to George H.W.'s home.

Putin would be setting foot inside the building for the first time in more than a decade. For instance, when I served in the White House, under George W. Bush, he came to President Bush's home in Crawford, Texas. -Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War", but that the meeting with Trump allowed a start on "the path to positive change".

In an open letter to the RNC, Horn said Trump repeatedly denigrated Republican values "in spectacular fashion" in Helsinki.

At one point, the rhetorical zigzags left one senator lamenting a "walk-back of the walk-back" that was, she said, "dizzying".
