Trump lists his agenda for Putin summit — and doesn’t once mention election hacking

Published

During a joint press appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, President Donald Trump listed things that the two leaders would be discussing during their meeting — and he didn’t once mention Russia’s hacking of Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails during the 2016 presidential election.

After congratulating Putin for the World Cup tournament his country hosted over the past few weeks, Trump went on to describe the issues on the agenda for their meeting.

“We have a lot of good things to talk about,” said Trump. “We have discussions on everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China — China, we’ll be talking about China, our mutual friend, President Xi.”

Not mentioned anywhere is Russia’s efforts to hack and distribute Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails during the 2016 presidential election, which special counsel Robert Mueller outlined in stunning detail in an indictment of 12 Russian officials last week.

Earlier on Monday, Trump placed the blame entirely on the United States for poor relations between Washington and Moscow — and Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs even popped up on Twitter to say “we agree” with the president.

Chuck Schumer wants John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney to testify at Trump’s Senate impeachment trial

Published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants top administration officials to testify in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the United States Senate.

The House of Representatives is expected to pass articles of impeachment on Wednesday, setting up a Senate trial in the new year.

"In a letter sent on Sunday evening to McConnell, the majority leader, Schumer says Senate Democrats want to hear testimony from four administration witnesses, including acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton," Politico reported.
