Trump called us hacks to delegitimize intelligence report — Brennan

Russia and the US have largely been at odds over Moscow's support of the government of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, and Washington's arming of rebels who Putin had accused of being extremists allied with the Islamic State.

The two presidents said that support for the Geneva talks included ensuring that UN Security Council Resolution 2254 is fully implemented so as to pave the way for a political settlement focused on free elections and constitutional overhaul under UN auspices. He says that very strongly, he really seems to be insulted by it and he says he didn't do it.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help the Republican Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Facing sharp criticism, Trump walked back from some of those comments on Sunday, saying he has faith in the intelligence leaders he has hired.

"I believe in our intel agencies, our intelligence agencies". Putin has said some marginally nice things about Trump, and Putin makes time to meet with Trump whenever possible.

"So you look at it - I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper, and you have Comey". "As to whether I believe it or not, I'm with our agencies, especially as currently constituted, with their leadership".

The president claimed that Japan and South Korea "are now getting along much better", and "that was great". "And also I think Mr. Trump is, for whatever reason, either intimidated by Mr. Putin, afraid of what he could do or what might come out as a result of these investigations", Brennan said. "And to try to paint it in any other way is, I think, astounding and, in fact, poses a peril to this country". And if they are, that's not a good thing.

Their comments came after Trump told reporters over the weekend that he had spoken with Putin again over allegations of Russian meddling in the presidential election and that the Russian president again denied any involvement.

"You can only ask so many times". Trump called James Comey, whom he fired as FBI director in May, a "liar" and a "leaker".

"'China likes me", Trump said. "Our relations are still in crisis".

Now Trump is slated to attend the Association for Southeast Asian Nations conference on Monday to urge allies to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.

In his press conference, Putin dismissed the accusations as "political infighting" in the US.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo "stands by and has always stood by the January 2017 intelligence community assessment" that found interference by Russia, the Hill newspaper reported, citing a statement from an agency official it didn't identify. He said they mostly discussed Syria, and agreed to a statement on the subject.

Last month, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to having lied to the FBI about the timing of meetings with alleged go-betweens for Russia. "Putin does not have America's interests at heart". But Putin said he did not do what they said he did.

"Putin is trained in deception".

Multiple congressional committees are also investigating.

Clapper offered his skepticism after President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit this weekend, and Trump emerged saying he believed Putin's denial of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
