On Election Interference, Trump And His Advisers Sound Completely Out Of Step

Coats joined Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Security Adviser John Bolton and General Paul Nakasone at the briefing.

Putin has repeatedly rejected the U.S. allegations that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election. "This includes measures to heighten the security and resilience of election systems and processes, to confront Russian and other foreign malign influence in the United States, to confront such aggression through global action, and to reinforce a strong sanctions regime".

Russian Federation is waging a "pervasive" campaign to undermine democracy and "divide the United States", several of the nation's top intelligence officials said Thursday in their latest castigation of the Kremlin.

The government's show of force against election meddling comes two days after Facebook said it had identified 32 accounts and pages that it said were part of a "coordinated" effort by people who sought to hide their identities to spread information or influence users' political beliefs. "This is a threat we need to take extremely seriously".

"The president has specifically directed us to make the matter of election meddling and securing our election process a top priority", said Dan Coats, director of national intelligence.

Early in his presidency, Donald Trump pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a key free trade deal in the region. Still, he frequently sought to frame USA companies as the better partners for countries seeking foreign investment.

"I love it!" Trump Jr. replied.

White House officials have argued for a year that the media spend too much time on their Russian Federation obsession while short-changing such developments as a European Union trade deal and 4.1 percent growth in the GDP.

Stewart said he expects more Russian attempts to interfere with USA elections, saying that weakening trust in the United States here and overseas is part of Putin's strategy to expand Russian influence.

"What we are seeing are the malign influence operations", Wray said.

Mr Giuliani also told reporters the president's legal team was in the middle of ongoing negotiations with Mueller, as a report in The Washington Post said the special counsel had offered to reduce the number of questions in exchange for a sit-down interview.

CBS board says it will launch independent investigation; Moonves remains CEO
The departure of Moonves, 68, who has led the company since 2006, would be a blow to the broadcaster. When she rebuffed his advance and asked what he was doing, he replied, "Well, I was hitting on you".

"MediaBuzz" host Howard Kurtz weighs in on the current Paul Manafort trial, how it relates to Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and how President Trump is keeping the mainstream media on their toes.

"Fire Mueller and we fire you", countered House Intelligence Committee member Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.

Both Mr Coats and Trump's national security advisor John Bolton controversially claimed the Trump administration is taking decisive action to combat Russian interference.

"I've said all along I see no evidence of collusion".

"The threat is multi-disciplinary: targeting United States officials and other USA persons through traditional intelligence tradecraft, criminal efforts to suppress voting and provide illegal campaign financing, cyber-attacks against voting infrastructure along with computer intrusions".
