Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit Sudan

  • A source familiar with President Donald Trump's thinking said the president is infuriated over the leak that he was instructed by his national security team not to congratulate Russian leader Vladimir Putin on his re-election

The outlet said its sources did not know whether Trump had read the briefing notes prior to the call.

Russia's reaction underlined that with less than three months until the World Cup, the war of words between the United Kingdom and the Kremlin shows no sign of abating.

The decision by staff to leak of such sensitive information about Oval Office deliberations exposed a deep frustration within the White House about the president's ad-hoc approach and disregard for the advice of his inner circle.

The revelation that President Donald Trump congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his, um, hard fought re-election has set off a firestorm of criticism - from a Twitter scolding by Sen.

For one, Russian military intervention in Syria has helped President Bashar al-Assad gain control of the embattled country. An interview with Mr. Dershowitz on Fox News on Tuesday and an opinion piece by Mr. Dershowitz published on Wednesday did not include the exact phrasing that Mr. Trump used in his tweets.

Safety for England's fans was already a hot topic, but Johnson's remarks have provoked outrage in Russian Federation where hooligan gangs are rife - with Putin's government doing relatively little to discourage them.

The disparity between Trump and his advisers, who seem to take threats from Russian Federation more seriously, is becoming more pronounced.

"We can not comment on alleged classified deliberative documents allegedly provided to the president" a senior administration official told AFP.

Speaking in a stiff, scolding tone, Vladimir Yermakov, the head of the ministry's department of arms control and nonproliferation, called the attack on the Skripals a terrorist act that could have been staged by the British government to discredit Russian Federation.

"We recognise that the 2018 midterm, and future elections, are clearly potential targets for Russian hacking attempts", she said.

That's not the approach Trump has taken with adversaries like North Korea or Iran, or, for that matter, even with some allies. Three of Trump's associates - former national security adviser Michael Flynn, deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates and campaign aide George Papadopoulos - have pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and agreed to cooperate. He began Wednesday by railing against special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation.

Mueller has subpoenaed Trump's company for any documents involving Russian Federation.

That was glaringly clear when he skirted the issue of Russian interference in the USA election while bonding with Putin.

Brennan's fears clearly arise from some of these elements. John McCain, R-Ariz., who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee and has pressed the Trump administration to respond aggressively to Russia's interference in the USA presidential election. A Monmouth University poll reported that when the "deep state" was defined to respondents (63% said they were not familiar with the term) as "a large bipartisan majority who feel that national policy is being manipulated or directed by a "Deep State" of unelected government officials", almost 3-in-4 said they believed it existed.

If Trump isn't Putin's lackey, it's past time for him to prove it.
