U.S. Senator Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin's government

Putin pressed Trump for talks on arms control report

The White House is crafting on an executive order that would give President TrumpDonald John TrumpFive takeaways from Ohio's too-close-to-call special election Mar-a-Lago insiders provided input on VA policy, personnel decisions: report Trump claims victory as Balderson holds on to slim lead in Ohio MORE the authority to sanction foreigners who interfere in USA elections, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

After the summit, Paul and Trump discussed the senator's planned meetings with Russian officials and the messages the president wanted Paul to convey to them.

Such issues have been discussed between United States and Russian leaders for decade, but they have since been overshadowed by an array of controversies including Syria, Ukraine and claims of Russia's meddling in Mr Trump's 2016 election campaign.

Paul has been in Russia this week and has met with Russian lawmakers in a trip he sees as a continuation of Trump's diplomatic outreach to Putin.

Back in Washington, Trump clarified his remarks and has said that Russian Federation interfered, but has continued to call the claim that Russian Federation tried to help him win and Mueller's investigation "a big hoax".

Meghan has to undergo a royal 'test' this summer and we're confused
Of course, at this point it's safe to say that Meghan Markle has replaced her Hollywood lifestyle with her new royal one, instead. Former royal butler Grant Harrold told Express that much this week in an interview.

The White House called it a letter of introduction for Paul, who was visiting Moscow.

CNN has reached out to Paul's office and the White House for more details. Congressional elections will take place in November. However, he undermined those remarks when he quickly returned to calling the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt", and referred to Russian interference as a "hoax".

Trump sparked outrage by largely accepting Putin's word over that of his intelligence agencies at the Helsinki news conference.

He also held talks in Moscow with parliamentarians and pledged to block new sanctions against Russian Federation. "He is interested in legislative exchanges, parliamentary dialogue and cultural and educational exchange programs, increased counter-terrorism cooperation, building on recent successes like the disruption of the St. Petersburg plot and resolution of the military conflicts in Syria and Ukraine". The U.S. director of national intelligence would be required to conclude if any foreign nations interfered in elections one month after Americans cast their votes, triggering strict sanctions within 10 days if interference was detected.
