Trump Fears Rosenstein Is a 'Covert Liberal Trying to Undermine His Presidency'

Trump Fears Rosenstein Is a 'Covert Liberal Trying to Undermine His Presidency'

Trump has said he plans to raise the issue.

The US president caused consternation at the alliance summit in Brussels on Wednesday when he ramped up the pressure with a blistering attack on Germany.

"Georgia has a lot of allies who are interested in Georgia and actively support the agenda of our country", said Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili.

The Kremlin has denied the Russian state was involved in election meddling, and a statement from the nation's Foreign Ministry claims the indictments are created to "spoil the atmosphere" of Monday's summit. He urged allies on Wednesday to double their defense spending targets to 4 percent of GDP.

While not commenting on the 4% figure, Mr Hunt supported Mr Trump's assertion that other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members needed to to play a greater role.

According to Trump, May told him, "Don't worry, it's only the press".

"Britain is one of a minority of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries that does spend 2%, but for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to be sustainable and successful going forward, all countries need to to step up to the plate". "I'm pleased that the Justice Department is following the facts wherever they may lead, despite Donald Trump's risky distortions and his refusal to acknowledge the conclusions reached by the American intelligence community".

Angela Merkel did not address the U.S. President's comments directly when she spoke to reporters before leaving Brussels, but made her position clear that Germany had already been increasing its commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Officials said she made her position clear at the working dinner on Wednesday at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

"We agree that it is important to engage Russian Federation from a position of strength and unity and that we should continue to deter and counter all efforts to undermine our democracies", she said.

"We have this stupidity going on, pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation, because, anything you do, it's like: 'Russia, oh He loves Russian Federation'".

Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also said he is concerned that Putin will take "full advantage of an ill-prepared" Trump.

At a later press conference, Trump did not deny that he had made the threat, and said he had the authority to take the USA out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation without Congress approval but that it was "unnecessary".

"This was not an attack on Republicans or an attack on Democrats - this was an attack on the United States", he added.

McCain says the revelations from the Justice Department add to a body of evidence that confirms a Russian plot to "attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissention among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy".
