Schumer Calls On Trump To Cancel Putin Summit After Russian Indictments

Jeannette Daniel | 14 July, 2018, 09:52

Russia's Foreign Ministry is denouncing the United States' indictment of 12 alleged military intelligence agents accused of hacking into Democratic accounts in the 2016 U.S. elections. Referring to a TV courtroom drama aired in 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?"

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.

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet face-to-face Monday at the presidential palace in Helsinki - a move author Joel Rosenberg believes is a bad idea. "I think that we would have a chance to have a very good relationship with Russian Federation and a very good relationship with President Putin".

"If he does do this meeting he should do nothing less than hand Putin these indictments and the previous indictments and demand immediate extradition of all the individuals", Mr. Perez said.

Trump said Tuesday that his meeting with Putin "may be the easiest" out of all his other meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders this week.

According to Ushakov, Russian President Vladimir Putin's plans for Saturday and Sunday include a number of contacts with the foreign leaders who will come to attend the World Cup final match.

The charges come as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

"Secondly, if the president and his team are not willing to make the facts of this indictment at top priority of the meeting in Helsinki, then the summit should be cancelled", the Democratic senator said.

"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me, '" Trump said Friday morning before the indictments were announced.

On Friday, several Democratic leaders also weighed in, in some instances urging the president to consider canceling his summit with Putin.

Based on his track record, some Democrats said they weren't sure whether Trump should be trusted to hold talks with Putin.

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.

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