Trump retaliates on Twitter over Russian Federation photos

Trump retaliates on Twitter over Russian Federation photos

The State Department did post photos of Lavrov's meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, but that was open to the press. "They made sure everybody saw that picture".

"That's the problem with the Russians - they lie", the official added.

The photos were Russian.

Another important detail of the meeting between Trump and the Russians was that no U.S. media outlets were allowed into the Oval Office during the session, the only media that was present was a Russian news photographer who ended up sharing the photos online after the meeting, which made already confused Americans even more concerned about why Trump was shaking hands with Lavrov in the Oval.

In addition to posting the Lavrov-Trump picture, the foreign ministry also posted video of Lavrov joking about Comey's firing.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Rosenstein drafted the memo raising concerns about Comey on his own accord.

The resumption of activities of this commission has not been discussed at the talks, but Russian Federation leaves the question on the formats for the development of bilateral relations to the discretion of President Trump and his team, and is ready to move as much as it is convenient for the new administration of the White House.

Later, at the White House, Lavrov met Trump for what was supposed to be a private meeting, with no reporters or cameras allowed into the Oval Office, save for official photographers from each government.

Trump called his talks with Russian top official as "very, very good", while Kremlin also highly assessed this meeting.

That Wednesday meeting was already being seen as a major diplomatic coup for the Kremlin, a red carpet welcome just months after being hit with U.S. sanctions for meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"Our official photographer and their official photographer were present, that's it", said one aide shortly after the meeting.

The president's advisers said Trump fired Comey in response to a recommendation by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, then said Trump had planned to fire Comey regardless.

Today's spycraft experts probably had this story on their minds as they watched President Donald Trump welcome the Russian Foreign Minister and Russian Ambassador into the Oval Office on Wednesday, alongside a member of the Russian state media and his photography equipment.

After the tidal wave of news during the past week, we can't help but speculate whether some Russian agent left a modern-day Great Seal Bug in the Oval Office.

He further asked U.S. media "not to pin the blame on other people for their failure in organizing the photo shoot and the failure to provide access to their media". "Not meet with the Russians?"

When we met in a NY hotel, I asked the question that has hovered over him for months: was he Donald Trump's man in Moscow during the 2016 campaign? But I can see no explanation for Trump's weird attitude toward the allegations of Russian meddling other than a desire to hide something.

Rogers said he had not, adding, "I'll be honest, I wasn't aware of where the images came from". She said having journalists in the room isn't necessary when the president is meeting lower-level officials.

"It was set up a while ago and frankly, I could have waited", Trump told Holt. I'm not looking for cosmetics. "I think we're still waiting on the final conclusion of that investigation".

No, that statement came from the Russian Foreign Ministry's Twitter account, and the words were ostensibly penned by Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova.
