Trump says 'I gave up nothing' during Putin meeting

The intelligence chief was speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday when news of a possible second Trump-Putin summit later this year broke.

Perhaps it was this support from his party - 70 percent of Republicans approved of Trump's summit performance, according to a recent CBS poll - that led Trump to go back to what he has believed all along: that USA intelligence can not be trusted.

"When you hear the Fake News talking negatively about my meeting with President Putin, and all that I gave up, remember, I gave up NOTHING", Trump said on Twitter.

"So President Obama knew about Russian Federation before the Election", Trump tweeted.

Trump adds on the Putin meeting: "Also, we got along very well, which is a good thing, except for the Corrupt Media!"

President Donald Trump is mischaracterizing documents released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation this weekend related to the agency's wiretapping of Carter Page, a onetime campaign adviser. "It was a fraud and a hoax created to target Trump", the president said in a series of tweets quoting Tom Fitton, president of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

But lawmakers from both political parties said that the documents don't show wrongdoing and that they even appear to undermine some previous claims by top Republicans on the basis for obtaining a warrant against Page.

This past weekend Toronto police deployed dozens of additional officers to deal with a recent rise in gun violence in the city. Wilson added that she was saddened to hear about the victims, 18-year-old Reese Fallon and an unidentified 10-year-old girl.

The FBI said it suspected Page had been "collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government".

Trump called the Mueller probe "a disgrace to America".

Page denies being a foreign agent.

Conservative critics of special counsel Robert Mueller have argued that the FISA warrant is tainted - based on the opposition research dossier on Trump and Russian Federation that was paid for by Democrats - and that because the FISA warrant helped launch the FBI investigation into Trump and Russian Federation, the whole investigation is tainted.

That comes after a week of drama, back tracking, a double negative and blistering statements from allies about his attitude toward Russian election interference.

The poll was taken beginning the day before Trump's Helsinki summit, so includes respondents who were exposed to some of the furious blowback after Trump called Putin's denial of meddling in the US election 'powerful'. But Trump cast doubt once again in a Sunday tweet, diminishing at least the significance, if not the existence, of the interference and the US investigation into Russia's actions.
