Senate Scrambles To Head Off Good Relations with Russian Federation

"I think President Putin knows that better than anyone, certainly a lot better than the media".
"The fundamental question we must ask ourselves is do we wish to strengthen our partners in key regions or leave them with no other option than to turn to Russian Federation, thereby undermining a once-in-a-generation opportunity to more closely align nations with the USA vision for global security and stability", Mattis said.
During his public appearances with Putin in Helsinki, Trump suggested he believed the Russian president's denial that his intelligence officers interfered with the USA election.
They also added that "like Vladimir Putin, who has made clear his intention to challenge USA power", US needs to make clear that they will defend their nation and to prevent Russian Federation from "the hollowing of Western democracy".
Most recently, Trump said on Tuesday that not only does he accept that foreign interference is taking place, he fears that this year, Russian Federation will direct its energies in support of Democrats who want to claim majorities in the House and Senate. "Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russian Federation than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats", Trump tweeted Tuesday.
The U.S. intelligence community also proved that Russian agents attempted to meddle in the 2016 elections to benefit Republicans. Russian officials had said they might be open to Trump and Putin meeting on the sidelines of an worldwide summit such as the Group of 20, but they had not committed to a trip to Washington, D.C. He states often that Russian meddling in USA elections is fake news. The U.S. director of national intelligence would be required to conclude if any foreign nations interfered in elections one month after Americans cast their votes, triggering strict sanctions within 10 days if interference was detected.
Two prominent Republican senators have said that the United States must move promptly to prepare new sanctions against Russian Federation to discourage interference in upcoming elections.
While a clear legislative path is far from certain, and several GOP aides noted potential White House opposition to any new efforts, the push, along with a separate new Russian Federation sanctions package being put together by Sens.
At the same time, according to the Agency "Bloomberg", in the USA house of representatives, unlike the Senate, believe that the issue of new sanctions against Russian Federation should be treated carefully to avoid unexpected negative consequences for America.
Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's summit performance.
Trump later attempted to clarify his remarks by saying he misspoke a single word.
Last Thursday, Rubio and Van Hollen, noting the "urgency of the challenge before our nation", wrote to the chairmen of the Senate Banking and Foreign Relations committees pressing them to hold hearings on the legislation before the start of an early August recess.
"We need a vigorous response" that can be put in place quickly, Collins said.

Despite his claim, Trump heaped more praise on the autocratic nation, while at the same time taking aim at one of our allies. With that, Trump declared the contretemps over, insisting, "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".
