John Fritze USA TODAY Published 2:13 p.m. UTC Jul 22, 2018 WASHINGTON – The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee blasted President Donald Trump for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, saying the president “acts like he’s compromised.” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was responding to Trump’s apparent acceptance during a news conference last week of Putin’s denial that Russia attempted influence the 2016 election. Trump later attempted to clarify those remark amid a groundswell of bipartisan criticism on Capitol Hill. “For whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised,” Schiff told ABC’s This Week. “There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin, former KGB officer, rather than his own intelligence agencies.” Former Trump homeland security adviser Tom Bossert described the assertion as a “cheap shot” and dismissed the … [Read more...] about Adam Schiff, top intel Democrat, says Trump ‘acts like he’s compromised’

Cory Booker said Monday that President Donald Trump is acting like a person who “is guilty of something,” after Trump sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies which concluded Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election. “Not only is his behavior shameful, but his behavior is also indicative of somebody who has something to hide, or is guilty of something,” Booker (D-N.J.) said at an unrelated event in Newark.Story Continued Below During a press conference earlier in the day in Helsinki, Finland, Trump made a series of remarkable statements as he stood alongside Putin, including one stating that he does not “see any reason” why Russia would have hacked Democratic computer servers.

opinion Donna Brazile Opinion contributor Published 8:51 p.m. UTC Jul 16, 2018 This witch hunt is turning up a disturbing number of witches, and none of them are that “400-pound guy on his bed” President Donald Trump sought to blame for hacking the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officials for hacking into the DNC and interfering with the 2016 election should have been another wake-up call for an administration that keeps defiantly hitting the “snooze” button. In fact, it’s time for everyone to open their eyes and act to save our democracy.
