White House says Helsinki summit “is on” after Russian hackers indicted

The summit between US and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki will go ahead on Monday even after 12 Russians were indicted for meddling in the 2016 US election, White House press officer Sarah Sanders stated. Kremlin adviser Yuri Ushakov said, “We consider Trump a negotiating partner. The state of bilateral relations is very bad. We have to start to set them right.” The Russian foreign ministry dismissed the allegations as a conspiracy to “damage the atmosphere” before the summit and denied any evidence linking the indicted Russians to hacking or military intelligence. The indictments accuse them of cyber-attacks in March 2016 on the email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff.

      no, it’s good to see the Russians consolidating their gains with meaningless words of conciliation.

      Indictment of military intelligence personnel ? Are they sure these are their real names ? We heard one ofr those indicted was called really Shumer , the other one Trump, the third was Obama, the th was Clinton, and the fifth was bib macron, But than the most surprising was , you may or May not believe, was Boris Godunov Johnston Ivan the moron..
      If it continues like that , they will need to arrest all “The Presidents” man, and one woman.
