Ambiguous comments from homeland chief on election meddling

WATCH: DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen Says She Hasn’t Seen ‘Any Evidence’ Russian Interference Favored Trump

"It's not that one side is right and one side is wrong", she told NBC News' Peter Alexander. They also counter the assessment of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation was trying to help Trump.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday he believes that Russian Federation will try to undermine democracies around the world for the foreseeable future. The intelligence committee also suspected Russian agents were funneling money through the NRA, Schiff continued, leading members to suggest questioning Butina.

While speaking at an event at the Hudson Institute last Friday, Coats said the "warning signs" of threats to United States cybersecurity infrastructure he sees today are reminiscent of the warnings before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

She also expressed hope that a trade war with the USA could be staved off, ahead of European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker's visit to Washington next week to try and negotiate a solution. "We'd rather not know".it was very clear that anything that might tarnish the NRA, they didn't want to hear".

In May, she said she was unaware of intelligence assessments concluding that the Kremlin was clearly playing favorites.

The Russian ambassador was cited as saying it would be good to organize a meeting between Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and US counterpart James Mattis, adding that a group of USA lawmakers are also planning to visit Russia.

He lashed out at USA media for having reported his reconciliatory remarks in the July 16 meeting with Putin as a sign to side with Russian Federation against United States intelligence community. It took the president several attempts to walk back his comments, amplifying the fallout from his joint appearance with Putin. Trump, in attempting to calm the uproar, appeared to undermine US intelligence agencies further.

'Say that again?': United States intelligence chief's shocked response to Putin invitation
But after returning to Washington, Trump walked back these statements, telling reporters that he had misspoke. Minutes before the vote was scheduled to begin, Sanders issued a statement rejecting the Russian proposal.

This was the week when "would" turned into "wouldn't" and "no" meant "yes", as President Donald Trump and his top aides tried to walk back several of his comments on Russian Federation and the Federal Reserve.

Her remarks came after Trump called Monday's summit a "great success."

Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, said the idea sets a risky precedent that threats the "the whole idea of diplomacy", according to Russian news agencies.

US President Donald Trump has invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit Washington later this year, the White House announced on Thursday - news that caught Trump's own intelligence director by surprise and left him visibly startled.

"So I had a meeting that lasted for more than two hours". "OK", Coats said to laughter.

And Coats was blindsided by the White House announcement Thursday that Putin had been invited to Washington this fall.

Nielsen also received an unintentional laugh from her audience when she told them that Trump "loves diverse opinions", and "craves different points of views".
