"That's going to be special" with a smirk. The timing of that announcement was "unfortunate", said the official who defended Coats.
"I don't know what happened in that meeting", he said.
But Coats' display of surprise upon learning that Trump had invited Putin to Washington this fall for a follow-on meeting drew the president's ire.
What happened during the one-on-one between Trump and Putin with only interpreters present remains unknown.
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. Trump reportedly complained to his staff about having to face AP reporter Jonathan Lemire's questions about whether or not he still believed Putin's denials about Russia's election interference, and whether he would call out and condemn that interference right then and there in front of the Russian leader.
The problem is that President Trump's controversial stance on Russian Federation comes down to more than just a few letters.
And Sanders created a fresh headache for the administration when she said the White House was still reviewing a proposal from Putin to allow access by Russian law enforcement officials to Americans whom the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes in return for USA access to interrogations of Russian agents indicted for their alleged roles in interfering in the 2016 election. Clinton continued. "Could it be because of all the nice things Donald has said about him or the fact that he has promised to adopt pro-Kremlin policies, or maybe because of the extensive business dealings with Russian oligarchs".
The White House backtrack came just before the Senate voted overwhelmingly against the proposal. There was also Putin's controversial suggestion that the US could sit in on the questioning of the 12 indicted Russians - but only if the USA would allow Russia to question of Americans whom the Kremlin has accused of committing "illegal activities".
A group of Republican members of Congress traveled to Moscow for a rare trip this month, and lawmakers could visit again in the first half of August, senior lawmaker Konstantin Kosachyov was quoted as saying by TASS news agency. That resolution had the support of Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake. He restated the USA intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and Moscow's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy". At the time, White House officials worked to convince a skeptical president that the Nordic capital would serve as a more effective backdrop - and warned of a firestorm should a West Wing meeting go through. -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". She said at the Aspen Forum that Russian Federation is attempting to "cause chaos on both sides".
The surveillance of Page became a contentious matter between Republican and Democratic lawmakers earlier this year. The documents released include applications and renewal warrants filed in 2017 after Trump took office.
Trump appeared to answer "no" to a reporter's question asking whether Russian Federation was still targeting the U.S. Among those Russian Federation was seeking to question was former United States ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul.
