Putin praises Trump as ‘well-qualified after summit

President Donald Trump shakes hand with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the end of the press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki Finland Monday

Corker's comments to reporters on Capitol Hill came after the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki, Finland, where Trump said he did not "see any reason why" Russian Federation would have been behind attempts to interfere in the 2016 election - a break from the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community and his own top national security advisers.

Addressing a joint press conference with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump in Helsinki, Putin said, "As major nuclear powers, we (Russia and the US) bear a special responsibility for maintaining global security". A USA grand jury indicted 12 Russian intelligence agents on Friday for their alleged involvement in hacking email accounts controlled by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign, casting a shadow over the Helsinki summit.

Trump reiterated that there was no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and in reference to hacking in the USA presidential election, said: "My people came to me, they said they think it's Russian Federation".

Every major USA intelligence agency has concluded there was such interference by Russia during the election and the matter is the focus of a major federal investigation that has targeted not only Russians, but members of Trump's election campaign staff.

The US and Russian Presidents are now holding a press conference in Helsinki, Finland.

"Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russian Federation accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections", Graham tweeted.

"The Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in coordination with worldwide partners, have detected Russian government actors targeting government and businesses in the energy, nuclear, water, aviation and critical manufacturing sectors", Coats said at the Hudson Institute think tank in Washington on Friday.

Putin said he told Trump during their talks that "the Russian state never interfered and does not plan to interfere in internal American electoral process".

Appearing on "The Next Revolution", Cohen said Trump is not fully empowered to deal with Putin, explaining that both men will meet stiff opposition politically to any improvement in relations. "The Russian state has never interfered and will never interfere in the internal workings of the U.S. state", he said early in the proceedings, adding that both sides could look at the issue via a joint working group on cybersecurity.

Trump said that he again "addressed the issue of Russian interference in our elections" with the Russian leader during their meetings on Monday.

U.S. senator, fellow Republican and 2008 presidential runner-up John McCain called the meeting "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory". John McCain (R-AZ) said in a statement. US intelligence agencies have concluded Russian Federation did interfere, but the Kremlin has denied state involvement. "We don't actually know of what the offer consisted, but it's very interesting to me that they discussed Ukraine, and Putin said that there is 'an interesting offer" there".

Trump said in an interview with CBS News broadcast on Sunday that the idea of asking Putin to extradite the agents hadn't occurred to him, and he might do it. He said: "First of all Mr President I'd like to congratulate you on a really great World Cup". "We must make clear that the United States will not tolerate hostile Russian activities". But on the plus side, Putin offered POTUS an official soccer ball from the World Cup that just concluded in Russian Federation.

Former CIA Director Thomas Brennan called Trump's comments treasonous. Donald Trump responded to it by saying that diplomacy and dialogue can go a long way in ironing out hostility.
