Kentucky Senator Delivers Letter To Russia

Putin pressed Trump for talks on arms control report

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.

Trump wants to ease tensions between the former Cold War foes and has been solicitous of the Russian strongman despite the U.S. intelligence community's unanimous conclusion that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 U.S. election and was also targeting the upcoming midterms.

Trump's meeting with Putin received lower marks, with 23 percent calling it successful and 35 percent calling it unsuccessful.

Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts revealed the contents of the letter on Wednesday.

There has been no indication that a Putin-Paul meeting will take place.

Damani Bryant Felder, a Trump supporter, pointed out that given how prolifically leaky the administration is, if the Russians had something on Trump we would know by now.

The White House told Fox News that Paul asked Trump to write a letter of introduction to the Russian leader.

Chicago Has Brutally Violent Weekend
From Saturday morning to Sunday morning, the total was 37 shot and three dead, the newspaper said. Chicago's gun violence has drawn national scrutiny, including from President Donald Trump.

Christopher J. Gagin, who revealed he was the Republican Party chairman from OH who resigned after the Helsinki summit, pointed out that Trump defended Putin's denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

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.

"The Russian document outlines a host of areas where the two countries could work together to reduce nuclear dangers and rebuild some of their lost trust".

Paul, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has continued to meet with Russian officials in Moscow this week along with visiting the US embassy.

Trump's efforts to improve ties with Russian Federation have not yielded significant results.

A reported text of the draft bill published Wednesday sent Russia's ruble to lows against the dollar last seen in April.
