Putin hopes for further dialogue with Trump

Ronna Romney Mc Daniel sat down Thursday morning with the hosts of Fox & Friends and suggested it was'hypocritical for people to be bringing up Trump and Russia when there are questions swirling about a Democratic contractor working with the Ukra

Akhmetshin's presence at the meeting, first reported by NBC News, raised new questions about the credibility of multiple White House statements about the meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer that was also attended by Paul Manafort, then Trump's campaign chief, and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law.

Trump Jr. has been under fire all week after details of his meeting were brought to light. The same day, the Times' Ken Vogel reported that a translator named Anatoli Samochornov was also at the meeting.

Investigations by Congress and the U.S. Justice Department are focusing attention on whether the president's team helped Russian operatives find voting districts in key states in which unexpected campaign weaknesses were discovered.

But the lobbyist rejected that allegation as "maliciously false", telling AFP he "never worked for any intelligence service".

Mr Akhmetshin told the AP news agency he served in a Soviet military unit that was part of counterintelligence, but that he was never formally trained as a spy.

The Washington Post reported, "Her high-profile spot in the room gained notice this week with the circulation of a photo in which she looms over the shoulder of former USA ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, an adviser to President Barack Obama and a witness before the panel".

In court papers filed in 2015 with the US District Court in Washington DC, where he lives, a mining company accused him of organising a hack on its private records as part of an alleged smear campaign.

"It is totally bogus to suggest that somehow it was okay because they didn't actually obtain any useful information in it", Josh Earnest, former White House Secretary in the Obama administration, said.

But her co-stars are always there to reassure her. "My mates are like, 'It's you - you and Daenerys are one and the same now". But let's face it, what we all really want to know is what Tyrion's face will look like when he learns that Cersei is Queen.

"Just because I was born in Russian Federation doesn't mean I am an agent of [the] Kremlin", he told Politico recently.

But the most nefarious form of collusion imagined would be if high-level Trump associates worked hand in glove with Kremlin officials or affiliates to encourage illegal hacking and leaking of Democratic secrets.

The Russian lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, told The Associated Press that he attended the meeting in New York's Trump Tower, though Trump Jr. had not mentioned that Akhmetshin was present. "It's called opposition research".

The Senate Intelligence Committee said Trump, Jr. and Kushner will be called to testify.

"My son is a wonderful young man", the president said.

He described it as a "short introductory meeting" during which the three discussed a disbanded program that used to allow USA citizens to adopt Russian children. It was a short meeting that went very, very quickly, very fast.

The June 9 meeting has become the focus of allegations that the Trump election campaign collaborated a year ago with a covert effort by Moscow to turn voters away from Clinton.

The two then met for lunch at restaurant near Trump Tower.
