T: Opening our event with @MarkWarner and @MarcoRubio, @FredKempe says: “This event brings together members of Congress and parliamentarians from both sides of the aisle and both sides of the Atlantic… for a discussion of the Kremlin’s interference in democratic elections.” 1/
.@markwarner: "@POTUS’ actions today were outrageous. The president of the United States sided with Vladimir Putin over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community."
.@marcorubio: "What @POTUS said today is not accurate. The intelligence community has assembled probably an unparalleled amount of evidence in regards to the Russian–not just efforts to interfere in 2016 but ongoing efforts to interfere American society." 3/

Sur-ren-der (verb):
1. Submit to authority.
2. Comply w/ demand.
3. Lose advantage.
4. Yield to influence.

Trump, standing next to Putin: [Russia's global alienation for anti-democratic actions, invasions, poisonings, etc] "changed as of about four hours ago."
Trump: "Incredible offer!"

Putin invites Mueller to interrogate 12 GRU officers indicted by US grand jury for interfering in US elections on two conditions:

1. Mueller visits them in Russia.
2. US let's Russia interrogate US counterintelligence officers & classified docs.
Brass tacks: before today, Russia's only major allies since 2014 annexation of Crimea were China, Iran, North Korea, Syria (Assad), and Cuba (AKA Alliance of Autocracy).

Trump should listen to Groucho Marx: “I don’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.”

Trump had his Secret Service forcibly remove a journalist from the #TreasonSummit.

Historically, do you know who else did this kind of blatant disregard of free speech and a free press?


.@thenation's comms director Sam Husseini was forcibly removed by Trump's Secret Service for holding up a sign.

Repeat: an American President removed a member of our free press for exercising his First Amendment rights.

I can't believe what I'm seeing.

A reporter was forcibly dragged from the briefing room by security for having in his possession a small paper sign [could have been notes] which read: "Nuclear weapons, ban treaty."

"He had made a sign that said “Nuclear Test Ban Treaty,” hoping that holding it up would get the attention of Trump and Putin so he could ask a question about it"

While we wait for #HELSINKI2018 to finish, here's a couple of remarks inspired by the #TrumpPutin meeting.
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.

(1) #TeamTrump #PhotoThread: Visit to Europe July 2018 - Part V.

Scotland: Glasgow, the Trump Turnberrry Club, then on to the #HelsinkiSummit with Russia.
(2) As usual, the photos of the couple looking relaxed and happy are tucked away and harder to find, while the negative ones are front and center. They've been travelling and carrying out events nonstop all week, but they still look energized. Positive attitude.
(3) POTUS and team pointing and laughing at something, possibly the asinine Greenpeace stunt, because "below par" is a good thing in golf. LOL

Very very stupid idea to risk getting shot... a POTUS is one of the most well protected persons in the world.
