    The Senate unanimously passed a resolution Thursday expressing opposition to the notion the United States might cooperate with the Russian government to make former U.S. diplomats, officials, and military members available for questioning. The resolution is a direct response to Russian President Vladimir Putin discussing with the President Donald Trump on Monday the possibility of prosecuting American-born British financier Bill Browder, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, and others for alleged crimes. The offer from Putin developed after the Justice Department indicted 12 GRU military intelligence officers for their involvement in Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 U.S....

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying, “We want very much to have a strong Russia.” “Will the Dems and Fake News ever learn? This is classic!,” Trump commented in his tweet, in apparent response to Democrat and liberal news media criticism of his comments about, and dealings with, Russia. In the video, Ms. Clinton states: “We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, competent, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world.” Clinton made the remark in an answer to a question by Vladimir...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Thursday that President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shouldn't hold additional one-on-one meetings until the administration details what happened during Monday's Helsinki summit. “Until we know what happened at that two hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin. In the United States, in Russia, or anywhere else," Schumer said in a statement. Talk of a second meeting comes days after the two leaders met one-on-one for two hours in Helsinki. Trump sparked widespread backlash during a press conference after the meeting by refusing to...

    Time magazine has released the cover of its newest issue, and it makes quite a visual and political statement. The cover shows the faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphing together. The close-up image shows the leaders' faces blended so that it's unclear where one begins and the other ends. An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. The cover illustrates an article on the two leaders' recent Helsinki summit and the persistent controversy over what author Brian Bennett calls President Trump's "puzzling affinity for Putin."

On Thursday, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attacked President Trump after Trump did not initially reject an offer from Vladimir Putin that Russia be allowed to “question officials, including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence service of the United States.” When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about whether Trump supported the idea, she responded, “The president’s going to meet with his team and we’ll let you know when we have an announcement on that.” In response, Clinton tweeted an attack on Trump that...

    In the view of many contemporary Russian leaders, the United States occupies a space on the world stage that rightly belongs to Russia—based on its possession of nuclear weapons, its history and culture, having the largest national territory, and other factors. Yet Russia’s apparent inability to compete with the United States on the world stage has resulted, for some leaders in Moscow, in mixed feelings of resentment, envy, and admiration. Speaking earlier this month at the Munich Security Conference, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned that his country and the West are headed towards a “new Cold War.” He criticized...

    Defying expectations, a Turkish court rebuffed appeals today to free Andrew Brunson, the US pastor whose trial on bogus terror charges has become a litmus test for turbulent ties between Turkey and the United States. The trial was adjourned until Oct. 12.The North Carolina pastor has been charged with espionage and links to coup plotters and Kurdish militants and could face up to 35 years if convicted. Brunson continued to deny any wrongdoing in his third courtroom hearing, amid a string of wild assertions from witnesses for the prosecution. “I am an innocent man on all these charges. I reject...

    Bill Browder, a prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Thursday said that if President Trump turns him over to the Russian government he will be handing him over to his death. "To hand me over to Putin is basically to hand me over to my death," Browder said while appearing on CNN’s "At This Hour." Putin mentioned Browder by name during a press conference with the president on Monday, where the Russian leader said that the Kremlin would permit special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to travel to Russia and question 12 Russian intelligence officers indicted in the Russia...

    President Trump has asked his national security adviser John Bolton to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington for a second summit. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that plans are underway for a second summit after Trump floated the news in an earlier tweet on Thursday. "In Helsinki, @POTUS agreed to ongoing working level dialogue between the two security council staffs," Sanders tweeted. "President Trump asked @Ambjohnbolton to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway." Sanders's tweet came three days after the two leaders held talks in Finland, igniting a...

    Facebook’s reticence to publicly weigh in on the Trump campaign’s use of its ad platform has rankled some within the former campaign. "I believe Facebook was a great platform for the president," Trump 2016 campaign digital director Brad Parscale, who is now serving as Trump's 2020 campaign manager, told BuzzFeed News. "I'm completely disappointed that Facebook won't step up and announce to the world how well we used the platform and that we changed the way Facebook advertising will work in the future." So far, any praise for the Trump campaign’s use of the platform has been made in private....

    Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that's staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior." "I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to...

    Bar some controversial choices, Melania Trump quickly and easily asserted herself as one of the most fashionable first ladies in America's history. Thanks to an unearthed video, we've discovered that's because 2016 wasn't the first time Melania was sworn into the White House. Back when she was Melanija Knavs, the future FLOTUS posed as the first female president of the US in a Slovenian fashion ad. In the low-budget shoot—with tragically '90s music—Melania disembarks 'Air Force One' and talks with reporters on the tarmac before being escorted by the Secret Service to be sworn in as president.

    “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into a screaming match about President Trump on Thursday with guest and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. Pirro appeared on the show to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals” but wound up telling Goldberg she’s suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” “Listen, I don’t have 'Trump derangement,'” Goldberg fired back. “Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.'” “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with,” she continued. “But I...

    President Trump ripped Joe Biden in newly aired interview comments, saying running against the ex-vice president in 2020 would be a “dream” and claiming former President Barack Obama “took him out of the garbage heap” in 2008. “Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That's a dream,” Trump said in an interview with CBS News, when asked about a Biden bid. “Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than one percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I'd love to have it be Biden.”
  • Trump rejects proposal for Russia to interrogate US citizens

    US President Donald Trump has rejected a proposal made by the Russian leader Vladimir Putin that Russia be allowed to question US citizens. The White House earlier said it would consider it but now says Mr Trump "disagrees" with the suggestion. The offer was made at a summit of the two leaders. In return, Mr Putin suggested he might allow access to 12 Russians indicted by the US. The idea of allowing a foreign power to quiz US citizens sparked outrage. "It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it," White...

    The conveniently timed indictments of 12 more Russians by Deputy AG (or should we just face reality and ditch the word “deputy”) Rosenstein who will never see the inside of an American court room probably includes the Russian who “hacked” into John Podesta’s email account secured with the password “password”. Rosenstein was pleased with himself no doubt to announce that 12 Russian spies were caught – er- spying, on President Obama’s watch, by the way, but neglected to include one small detail in his announcement – namely that DNC Chair Donna Brazile and most of the Obama hierarchy let them...

    Online activists angry with President Trump's policies have manipulated Google Images search results, causing images of Trump's face to appear as the top search results for the term "idiot." The Guardian first reported the campaign Thursday, which appeared to begin on Reddit after an initial campaign aimed to get the hit Green Day song "American Idiot" to the top of the British music charts during Trump's visit to the U.K. last week. Several posts on Reddit with tens of thousands of upvotes (bots?) could be found promoting the news stories or the general campaign to manipulate the search results. Google...
