White House drafting sanctions order to punish foreign interference in U.S

White House drafting sanctions order to punish foreign interference in U.S

Paul tweeted that he "was honored to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin's administration". While Trump obliged the senator and wrote the letter, the White House said the idea that Trump asked Paul to deliver the letter to Putin on Trump's behalf is not true.

Trump was widely criticized in the US for his performance at the Helsinki summit as he appeared to embrace Putin's denial that Russia had interfered in the election, equating the Russian leader's stance with the USA intelligence community's finding that Russia had sought to help Trump win.

In addition, Putin in Helsinki allegedly spoke with trump about the new ban the deployment of weapons in outer space and called for the establishment of a consultative mechanism at the level of Ministers of defence and foreign Affairs.

A pair of prominent Republican US senators said on Sunday that the United States must move promptly to prepare new sanctions against Russian Federation to discourage interference in upcoming elections.

Paul announced the delivery Wednesday afternoon while meeting with various Russian leaders throughout the week.

The FBI and the intelligence committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives have been pursuing a probe into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In one email, Manafort wrote "WTF" and "not happy" about tax payments he was going to have to make, Gates said. Gates also said that he did not report 15 foreign offshore bank accounts to the government.

The details were leaked in a document entitled "Dialogue on the Issue of Arms Control", with Russian officials saying that Putin shared the contents with President Trump.

The Trump administration has prepared an eight-page draft of an executive order that would allow the White House to sanction non-United States citizens for meddling in USA elections.

He also held talks in Moscow with parliamentarians and pledged to block new sanctions against Russian Federation. Trump's top intelligence official, Dan Coates, has said that he is in the dark about what Trump discussed with Putin in their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki.

The two countries are also at odds over Syria and Ukraine.
