Donald Trump, standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin, has declared he can not see any reason to believe Moscow meddled in the election that led to him becoming USA president in 2016. It's been over a year since US intelligence agencies proved that there was Russian interference in the election and that Russian operatives hacked and leaked emails from the Democratic party in 2016.

Trump added that Putin made him "an incredible offer" to work with the investigators on the Mueller probe into the 12 Russian nationals that were indicted by the Department of Justice on July 13 over USA election hacking.

President Trump then blamed the Obama administration and the DNC for allowing hackers to gain access to election data, while Putin fiercely denied Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election.

"On the so-called interference of Russian Federation in USA elections, I reiterated what I said several times". "Trump, given chance to criticize Putin actions, embraces false equivalence that both sides are to blame, talks no collusion, but declines to criticize Putin for interference". "I stand with our men and women in the US intelligence community, and am highly disturbed by President Trump's statements supporting Putin's baseless, false claims of innocence".

Steven N'Zonzi replaced N'Golo Kante in the 55th minute of the World Cup final. "He's everywhere", Lineker had told L'Equipe . The way he takes the ball from the feet of his opponents, without them appearing to notice, is incredible.

Jeff Flake is another personality who slammed Trump for saying that the USA was also to "blame" for the tensions between the two countries.

The two leaders spoke at a joint news conference in Helsinki on Monday.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant", McCain said in his statement.

The Washington Times reported Putin offered to work with the analyzing cyberattacks.

"I think that the probe is a disaster for our country", Trump added, taking the unusual step to undermine his own Justice Department on foreign soil. "All the more that the United States will host the World cup in 2026", Putin said.

"The United States must be focused on holding Russian Federation accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy". Spoiler: it wasn't Donald Trump.

It turns out, however, that when Putin is questioned by Russian journalists, he seems to open up quite a bit more, and in this case, his comments after the press conference to Channel One Russia were quite intriguing. As Lindsey Graham, the United States senator from SC, put it: "This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russian Federation as a sign of weakness, and create far more problems than it solves". Putin coyly asked the room, before promising to "look into" the "12 alleged Russian officers" indicted last week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office.

On Friday, the Justice Department laid out details of what it said was a far-reaching hacking scheme in an indictment of 12 Russian agents whom it accused of trying to disrupt the US election.

The president did not elaborate on Putin's idea.

John O. Brennan, who ran the Central Intelligence Agency under President Obama, called Mr. Trump's comments at the press conference "nothing short of treasonous".
