Global Geopolitical Series: Syria solution nears thanks to Trump-Putin chemistry

REPORTER: How did you bring up the issue of election meddling?

One amendment reportedly being considered in the State Duma would allow the state's Prosecutor General's office to block "undesirable organizations" from posting their content on Russia's internet.

Finally, try to imagine if a Democratic president had openly sided with a Russian president over the USA intelligence community.

Russian Vladimir Putin again denied the meddling charges in a conversation with President Trump last week in Vietnam, and vowed to hit back if the US acted.

Multiple sources report that in freshman year of college, Trump got a C on his final history paper when he argued that "the Greeks told the Trojans they absolutely did not have warriors in the horse". Vedomosti later reported that the Dumawas considering a much broader move, covering other Western and global press outlets. Putin tapped Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to represent Russian Federation in the historic meetings. But that doesn't invalidate the findings of dozens of intelligence professionals who looked at Russia's activities throughout the election process and concluded that Putin had directed a campaign to influence the 2016 presidential contest.

To the editor: I know we are all going to sleep more soundly at night knowing that Trump believes Putin's denial of his country's interference in our election. President, It's absolutely insane to say that a leader of a global superpower has no idea what's going on in his own government, ' he would be like, 'It's not so insane. "And also I think Mr. Trump is, for whatever reason, either intimidated by Mr. Putin, afraid of what he could do or what might come out as a result of these investigations", Brennan said.

"He said he didn't meddle", Trump said.

Speaking at a news conference on Sunday in Hanoi, Trump said he stands with intelligence agencies on their findings.

U.S. journalists believe that President Trump will continue avoiding full-fledged meetings with Putin while Robert Muller continues investigating so-called "secret ties" of Trump's election headquarters with the Russian administration during the presidential race in 2016. "The President is not the chairman of the board of elections in this country", Kellyanne Conway remarked to Martha Raddatz on ABC News' This Week. I asked him again. "Comey's proven now to be a liar and he's proven to be a leaker", he said on route to Hanoi, referring to the FBI's former director, who was sacked early in Trump's presidency amid much controversy. "I pray all the hatred in the United States will stop and everyone works together to restore our Nation instead of trying to cause World War III", another added. But there's another explanation: Maybe the president of the United States is just incredibly credulous.

But Trump told of his "great relationship" with Duterte, characterizing it as "very successful".

"Colbert mocked Trump's response to reporters: "'Every time he sees me he says, 'I didn't do that'". He believes that Putin doesn't think Russian Federation meddled - but Trump himself believes the intelligence community.
