Why Trump got an 11 out of 10 at the G20

Trump's son met Russian lawyer after promise of information on Clinton: NY Times

What's currently known about the deal is that the United States, Russia and Jordan have agreed to establish a violations monitoring center, which would be based in Amman, the capital of Jordan. Called it "much ado about nothing".

Both Democrats and Republicans said the new sanctions are a response to Russian aggression in Ukraine and efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. Kushner failed to disclose those meetings, and the one with Veselnitskaya, when he sought a security clearance as a top White House aide.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said yesterday the two leaders made no promises to each other to form a joint group on cyber security, but stated their readiness to work in this direction. Like the broader chain of financial, political and governmental events involving the American president and Russia, it was highly unusual.

The lack of pushback on the Kremlin's account sent a stark message from the White House: That Putin's denials are at least on par with the US intelligence community's conclusions that Putin directed a campaign to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who mocked the irony of collaborating with Russia on cybersecurity. "But there was really sophisticated attempts to do so". Stalin responded with appreciation, and the President's relationship with the man he himself began to call "Uncle Joe" was off to a positive start.

EARHARDT: I mean President Trump can have a staff. We do know for sure: the FBI, CIA, NSA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a unanimous "high confidence" assessment in January that Russia was behind the hacking last year, and that its intent was to hurt Hillary Clinton and to help Donald Trump. The younger Trump, who may face an inquiry over the meeting and has retained a lawyer to manage the situation, says he did not know the name of the person he was meeting before he attended the appointment.

And once again, the barrage was also a sign of a missed opportunity.

"While reality & pragmatism requires that we engage Vladimir Putin, he will never be a trusted ally or a reliable constructive partner", Rubio tweeted. "It can't-but a ceasefire can, & did!" It has been regularly ordered not to allow anti-government sentiment, feminist activism, and pornography on its various platforms.

"It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard-but it's pretty close", he quipped.

The Senate changed the bill by unanimous consent, after its initial approval, to comply with a constitutional requirement that legislation involving revenue originate in the House. The views expressed in this commentary are his own.

This isn't the first time the Chinese government has censored the internet through "keyword blocking", nor is it the most bizarre case.

The South Carolina Senator said that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's statement that Trump "rightly" focused on how to move past election interference issues was misguided. So far they have not paid a single price for that ...

The result of Trump's passivity is likely to encourage more such Russian assaults.

"And I think now we see where it goes from there". Under the revised measure, if the president were to seek to lift sanctions, only the speaker on the House side would be able to initiate a review.

"For weeks House Democrats have been calling for immediate action on the Senate bill and the House GOP has used every trick in the book to stall", Etienne said by email.
