WH Bans All But One Print Reporter From Kim Dinner After Shouted Questions

The White House banned all but one print journalist from covering a dinner between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday, after initially banning print journalists altogether, apparently due to shouted questions. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement, explaining what The Washington Post called “an extraordinary act of retaliation by the U.S. government”: “Due to the sensitive nature of the meetings we have limited the pool for...

Critical Context for the FBI Probe of Trump

So many things have happened over the last two-plus years that simply defy belief that it can be essential to review them, to see what light they shed on new developments when arranged in order. Last night the Times reported that in the immediate aftermath of James Comey’s firing the FBI launched a probe into “whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.” It’s worth reviewing the precise chain of events. Trump fired Comey on Tuesday, M...

‘We’ll Have To Develop Those Weapons’: Trump Says US Will Pull Out Of Nuke Pact

ELKO, Nevada (AP) — President Donald Trump said Saturday he will exit a landmark arms control agreement the United States signed with the former Soviet Union, saying that Russia is violating the pact and it’s preventing the U.S. from developing new weapons. The 1987 pact, which helps protect the security of the U.S. and its allies in Europe and the Far East, prohibits the United States and Russia from possessing, producing or test-flying a ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 300 to...

Russia official calls US charges a joke worthy of Jim Carrey

MOSCOW (AP) — A spokeswoman for Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman says the U.S. indictment charging 13 Russians with trying to influence the U.S. presidential election is ridiculous enough to be the work of a professional comedian.

Ex-Russian Ambassador: List Of Trump Officials I've Met Is 'So Long'

Russia’s former ambassador to the United States said Wednesday that it would take him 20 minutes to list all of the Trump administration officials with whom he’s met or spoken to on the phone. “First, I’m never going to do that,” Sergey Kislyak said in an interview with the state-owned network Russia-1, CNBC reported. “And second, the list is so long that I’m not going to be able to go through it in 20 minutes.” Kislyak’s meetings with then-Trump campaign and transition officials — which some of...

WH: There Was 'Not A Meeting' Between Trump And New Russian Ambassador

The White House late Friday swatted down claims made by Russia’s new ambassador to the U.S. that he had held a “warm and friendly” introductory meeting with President Donald Trump earlier in the day. “There was not a meeting,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an email to TPM. “He was here for a credentialing ceremony with 12 other new ambassadors and their spouses.” Anatoly Antonov was far more loquacious in his comments to the Russian press, characterizing the initial ...

Trump In Calls To World Leaders: 'Now Is Not The Time To Talk To North Korea'

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a flurry of phone calls with world leaders, President Donald Trump took a tough line against negotiating with North Korea as the communist country’s latest nuclear test exposed stark differences among international leaders for containing the threat. Trump’s military, diplomacy and intelligence chiefs were to brief Congress later Wednesday.

Trump To Hold Official Bilateral Meeting With Putin At G20 Summit On Friday

President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold an official bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg on Friday rather than a more typical informal discussion in light of tensions between the U.S. and Russia. The White House on Tuesday confirmed that Trump will hold a “normal bilateral meeting” with Putin on Friday afternoon, according to a pool report. “It is planned as a fully-fledged, ‘seated’ meeting,” Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told Russia’s...

Americans Keep Having To Rely On Foreign Sources To Get Details Of Trump’s Meetings

President Donald Trump met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after firing FBI Director James Comey, whose agency is investigating Trump associates’ ties to Russia.  White House reporters weren’t the first to inform the American public that Kislyak attended the scheduled meeting between Trump and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. That’s because the White House insisted the event be closed to the press. And the White House didn’t infor...

Russian State Media Gets Access To White House Meeting While U.S. Press Kept Out

On the morning after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, he met with Russia’s foreign minister in the White House. The Wednesday meeting was especially newsworthy given the timing and circumstances, with Comey having reportedly just asked for more resources to investigate Trump associates’ ties to Russia and the earlier conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community  that Vladimir Putin’s government interfered in the presidential election to boost Trump. The White H...

ISTANBUL, Aug 7 (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan told a rally of more than one million people on Sunday that July’s failed coup would be a milestone in building a stronger Turkey, defying Western criticism of mass purges and vowing to destroy those behind the putsch. The “Democracy and Martyrs’ Rally” at the Yenikapi parade ground, built into the sea on the southern edge of Istanbul, was a show of strength by Erdogan, who has been angered by European criticism of his combative response to t...
