Trump says he won't turn 'Perry Mason' on Putin over election meddling

John Kerry scolds President Trump for ‘disgraceful’ behavior – here’s why

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made no statement immediately after the indictments were announced at the Justice Department.

John Dean, the former President Richard Nixon White House counsel, said the timing would force President Trump to comfort Putin's about his military officials meddling into the 2016 presidential elections.

He said that was counterproductive to efforts to pressure Russian Federation.

Striking in the indictment is the stated finding that key sources of leaked information from the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of candidate Hillary Clinton-both DC Leaks and the hacker persona known as Guccifer 2.0-were both the creation and under the control of the GRU, the Russian government's cladenstine intelligence service. The New Jersey Democrat, a member of the Senate's foreign relations and judiciary committees, is considered a potential contender for his party's presidential nomination in 2020.

"If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the #HelsinkiSummit should not move forward".

"These individuals must be brought to the United States so that they can stand trial, and you should demand that Mr. Putin hand them over", the senators wrote.

The President's remarks came just an hour before Deputy Attorney Generla Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of twelve Russian Federation military agents for hacking and stealing American documents and information during the 2016 presidential election.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, a fierce critic of Trump, has refused to meet him and he was instead met at Glasgow airport by a British government representative.

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures as he answers questions during a news conference before departing the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium, Thursday, July 12, 2018. But he predicted Putin wouldn't confess.

"So I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom - which is somewhat in turmoil", Trump said. Referring to a TV courtroom drama of the 1950s and 1960s that often featured a dramatic, last-minute confession, he added, "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think, but you never know what happens, right?"

Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona said Trump must do more than ask. I will be asking that question again.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry scolded President Donald Trump for what he called "disgraceful" and "destructive" statements against USA allies in NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Wednesday.

Now, she said, "no lower court could possibly rule against President Trump's decision in light of Zivotofsky".

Since coming to power past year, Trump has sought to improve relations with Putin.

But Trump did appear to indicate he may cancel North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises if Putin asks, but provides no further details.

The US has passed a series of sanctions against Russian Federation since 2014 over its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and alleged meddling in the US elections, which it denies.

Allies emerged confused and shaken from a two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in which Trump harangued them over perceived under- spending on defense, accused Germany of being a prisoner to Russian energy and prompted an emergency meeting of leaders trying to contain the fallout from the unexpected tirade at one session.

Based on his track record, some Democrats said they weren't sure whether Trump should be trusted to hold talks with Putin. Putin has denied meddling in the election when Trump raised it before.

Having questioned the value of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in tweets throughout the summit, Trump later told reporters that the 29-member military alliance "was not doing what they were supposed to be doing" until he came to Brussels and that he was "extremely unhappy" until his intervention. He repeatedly dismisses the ongoing investigation that produced Friday's indictments as a "witch hunt".

The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved a motion in support of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on the eve of this week's summit, and former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for more.
