USA senators push sanctions to send Putin election meddling warning

CNN host Alisyn Camerota led off with Trump's "performance" in Helsinki at his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to a leaked Russian memo obtained by POLITICO, Russian President Vladimir Putin used the Helsinki summit with President Trump to push heavy for new talks on arms control deals going forward.

Trump was widely criticized in the US for his performance at the Helsinki summit as he appeared to embrace Putin's denial that Russia had interfered in the election, equating the Russian leader's stance with the USA intelligence community's finding that Russia had sought to help Trump win.

Paul has been one of the president's most vocal defenders in recent weeks, defending Trump for appearing to accept Putin's denials of US election interference.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

"I would like to introduce Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky", the letter from President Donald Trump began.

"In the letter, the president mentioned topics of interest that Senator Paul wanted to discuss with President Putin", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.

This was initially denied by Mr Trump's team, but his lawyers later confirmed that he had in fact dictated his son's statement. Trump Jr. had also previously claimed that he had never participated in any such meeting at all.

But Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that the letter has not yet been examined by the Kremlin.

A source who did not wish to be identified after obtaining the page translated from Russian into English by Politico, said: "This is, "We want to get out of the dog house and engage with the U.S. on a broad range of security issues". Congressional elections will take place in November.

The president has called special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between his campaign and Moscow a "witch hunt".

Paul, has cheered the Kentucky senator's leadership in bringing about more diplomacy between Russian Federation and the United States.

The senator met with members of the Russian parliament's upper house who serve on the foreign affairs committee Monday.

"The Russian document outlines a host of areas where the two countries could work together to reduce nuclear dangers and rebuild some of their lost trust".
