'I hadn't thought' of asking Putin to hand over indicted Russians

'I hadn't thought' of asking Putin to hand over indicted Russians

The president recently told CBS News that he "hadn't thought" about asking Mr Putin to extradite the 12 Russian military intelligence officers indicted this week in Washington on charges relating to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 USA election.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Starting in at least March 2016, the Conspirators used a variety of means to hack the email accounts of volunteers and employees of the US presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton ... including the email account of the Clinton Campaign's chairman... "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade", Trump said on the CBS program "Face the Nation".

After being given the idea by his interviewer, Mr Trump said: "Certainly I'll be asking about it".

Mr. Trump added that his Republican Party had also been the target of Russian hacking efforts but had superior cybersecurity measures in place.

In the interview with CBS News, Trump said he's entering the meeting in Finland with "low expectations".

Russia's president is likely to resist the "temptation" to deal with the U.S. directly, disregarding the interests of the EU, Kortunov believes, especially as tensions between Donald Trump and European leaders are soaring.

"That's what one of the purposes of this meeting is, so the president can see eye-to-eye with President Putin and ask him about it", Bolton said. The US leader added that he doesn't necessarily view them negatively.

Protesters came out on Sunday to attack both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin before the controversial summit between the two leaders in the Finnish capital. But when pressed on the question, he said he might.

He said he "believed in meetings" but was unsure what the outcome of the Helsinki meeting would be.

Trybus, who was intoxicated at the time, approached Irizarry because she was wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt. The woman, identified as Mia Irizarry , recorded incident on her cell phone at Caldwell Woods in June.

Trump and his top aides were downplaying expectations for Monday's summit as Trump continued to rattle allies by lumping in the European Union with Russian Federation and China after barnstorming across Europe, causing chaos at the recent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and in a trip to the United Kingdom.

The two leaders are also expected to hold a news conference to conclude the summit, where they are all but certain to face multiple questions about the indictment from USA reporters.

He has said multiple times during his European excursion that he will raise the issue of election interference with Putin but said he doesn't expect Putin to confess to the meddling and so otherwise he has little recourse.

Federal officials also say it's possible that malware might have been planted that could tamper with voting or paralyze computer systems in future elections.

"We consider Trump a negotiating partner", said Kremlin adviser Yuri Ushakov.

"These individuals must be brought to the United States so that they can stand trial, and you should demand that Mr. Putin hand them over", the senators wrote.

"He told me I should sue the European Union - not go into negotiations", May told the BBC.

"It isn't a summit", US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman told NBC'S Meet the Press.

The letter was signed by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who was among those who on Friday called on Trump to cancel the summit, and the top Democrats on the Senate Intelligence, Armed Services, Foreign Relations and other national security-related committees.
