The leader that fits Russian ambitions — Putin


Donald Trump has defended his congratulations to Vladimir Putin on the Russian President's disputed re-election victory, following reports he was explicitly warned in a pre-phone call briefing not to congratulate the leader.

"Someone leaked the president's briefing papers". There are indications that Rollins and the female victim had a prior relationship.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters.

After 30 years of living, breathing and sleeping political campaigns, one learns to spot tradecraft and distrust coincidences.

"I haven't heard anybody in the legislative branch say they thought that was a great idea", said Sen.

Asked at a Tuesday press briefing if the administration believes the Russian election was "free and fair", Sanders responded that, "we're focused on our elections".

The allegation of rigging is unfortunately the new normal, often used by trailing candidates as a tactic to satisfy supporters and financiers.

Russia's bluster might seem curious when one notes that it is immensely weaker than the U.S. or Europe.

You have to understand: the mere fact of the meeting between trump and Putin will cause a negative reaction in large public segment of America.

The deepening row has already seen Britain throw out 23 Russian diplomats, prompting a tit-for-tat response from Moscow which also closed the British Council cultural institute in Russia.

One crucial step, adds Konstantin Sonin on Project Syndicate, would be to loosen restrictions on foreign investment.

Election monitors also reported "irregularities" that included "secrecy and procedural shortcomings that reduced transparency of counting", and that popular would-be challengers were barred from running altogether.

"Quite frankly, after a year, we didn't get very far", Tillerson told reporters on March 13.

You had to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to see what was going on.

The former U.S. presidential candidate John McCain was quick to criticise Trump for his failure to raise allegations of widespread voter irregularities.

Western analysts say the approach seems to be working. I feel the need to address you, the people who backed my candidature across the country, to all the Russian citizens.

"Everyone has different interests". The U.K. holds Russia responsible and expelled 23 Russian diplomats for the incident. I call it the TASS theory, named after the famous Russian state news outlet, born of Soviet times but which thrives into the fourth Putin term.

Trudeau also said on Wednesday that Canada needs to be vigilant about protecting the integrity of its electoral systems from foreign interference.

The White House had said Monday that it was "not surprised by the outcome" of Sunday's presidential election in Russia and that no congratulatory call was planned. President Barack Obama called the Russian leader in 2012 and, according to a White House readout, congratulated him on winning his last reelection campaign. Only the tactics change, to reflect new technology.

But while Putin's tough approach may help win him support among voters at home and highlight his opponents' weakness in the short term, it may not be as effective at delivering him the recognition of Russia's resurgent power that he seeks.

Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Trump has expressed impatience with the principle of checks and balances that is the foundation of our government. "In particular they underlined the importance of coordinated efforts to limit an arms race".

And she will warn that, although the 'indiscriminate and reckless' attack took place in the UK, the Russian threat does not respect borders and places all European nations at risk.
