Donald Trump Tweets Walk-Back After Playing Vladimir Putin Lapdog in Helsinki

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Acting Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Edward O'Callaghan and Assistant Attorney General John Demers holds a news conference at the Department of Justice in Washington DC

Trump has repeatedly expressed skepticism about Russian involvement in the hacking while being accused by Democrats of cozying up to Putin. Clinton sent about 60,000 emails during her time in the Obama administration, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not have access to all of them; her staff deleted about half because they were private. "I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked".

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!" The deputy AG oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

On the same day that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump encouraged Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton's emails, a group of Russian military intelligence officers began launching cyberattacks aimed at computer severs used in her personal office, based on an indictment filed by the Department of Justice.

"Again, this was during the Obama administration", Mr. Trump said. His soon-to-be-infamous suggestion that he thought Putin might be more credible than US intelligence agencies on the subject of Russia's election interference is obviously disturbing in itself. After Trump concluded his remarks, American reporters shouted several questions about whether he would bring up election meddling during his discussions with Putin. "I'm not going in with high expectations".

Some researchers said the indictment might have depended on United States signals intelligence, the fruits of which are rarely revealed because it quotes electronic messages sent to an unidentified organization presumed to be London-based WikiLeaks.

Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California - one of the most Russia-friendly members of Congress - told Bloomberg that the USA meddles in elections "at a much higher rate" than Russian Federation. Trump's U.S. opponents tried, in turn, to gain traction for the sarcastic hashtag lampooning his reluctance to criticise the Kremlin: #BAF (Blame America First).

The 45-minute press conference provided the capstone on a foreign trip that completely remakes American foreign policy, with the European Union now dubbed by the U.S. president as a foe and Russian Federation as a friend.

"Well I think we have a lot of foes. you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe". "But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake".

It's taking a while for the near-universal stunned reaction to today's joint Trump-Putin presser to yield to analysis.

"Europe and China, America and Russian Federation, today in Beijing and in Helsinki, are jointly responsible for improving the world order, not for destroying it", he tweeted.

Those leaders are already fuming over Trump's imposition of trade tariffs on various countries, including Russian Federation. Protesters were on the streets of Helsinki to denounce the policies of both Trump and Putin.
