Putin Summit Still on as McCain, Dems Urge Cancellation

"These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin's government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy,"McCain said in a statement on Friday".

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin were slated to meet over the coming days in Finland.

While not expressing outright support for the meeting with Russian Federation, which is to take place on Monday, McCain said Thursday that that summit represented an opportunity for Trump "to demonstrate his willingness to defend America" against its adversaries.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R- SC) is a bit at odds with some of his Senate colleagues on whether President Donald Trump should proceed with the Vladimir Putin summit after today's indictments.

Twelve Russian intelligence officers were indicted on charges they hacked into Democratic email accounts during the 2016 US presidential election and released stolen information in the months before Americans headed to the polls, the Justice Department said Friday.

McCain wasn't the only Republican senator to criticize Putin following the indictments.

The fresh indictments related to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe come amid Trump's United Kingdom visit, and just hours after he once again called the investigation a "witch hunt".

"Cancel your ridiculous Putin summit and get your butt back on a plane to the United States", tweeted Sen.

Still, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the internet "allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways. 'I know you did it and if you continue to do it, we'll never have a good relationship'".

Trump himself said he would "firmly ask the question" today but added he doubts Putin would just cop to it in front of him. @POTUS shouldn't meet Putin until he accepts responsibility.

Trump said he will bring up the topic at a meeting between the two leaders next week in Helsinki. After meeting with the Russian leader in November 2017, Trump said of Russia's meddling, "Every time he sees me he says, 'I didn't do that, ' and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it".

Vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Mark Warner said if the meeting was to forward, Americans need to be in the room with the pair. Warner also called on the president and his allies to "immediately cease and desist from calling the Mueller investigation a witch hunt".
