Trump, Putin to meet in July, Russian state media says

Instead of focusing on bilateral relations, American media outlets wanted to talk about alleged Russian interference in the US election and the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

The American media, however, never caught a glimpse of either Russian inside the White House.

Lavrov also noted that he and the U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would consider issues to be discussed by the two countries' leaders at their meeting scheduled for July. When it turned out that a White House photographer was present there, too, some mass media said the Trump administration was angry these photographs were published openly. Michael Flynn resigned as national security adviser after news of undisclosed conversations with the ambassador came to light, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation after contacts between him and Kislyak during the 2016 campaign came to light in March.

Sanders added that it was "proper protocol" to close a meeting to the press when Trump is meeting with a foreign official who is not a head of state.

"What are we supposed to do?" the official asked.

Asked if the sacking of Mr. Comey was relief to Russian Federation given that he was pursuing investigations into alleged Russian Federation influence of the U.S election, Mr. Lavrov remained non-committal. Putin said Russian Federation had nothing to do with the firing and that Trump was acting within his constitutional mandate.

After the meeting, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted a photo of a smiling US President shaking hands with Lavrov on Twitter, along with video of Lavrov joking about Comey's firing. He invited news reporters to the Russian Embassy in Washington.

Comey held a press conference in July 2016 announcing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton for her use of the server while at the same time admonishing her conduct.

But Yates declined to answer the same question, saying that her answer would require her to reveal classified information. Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S.

"The goal of both president Trump and president Putin is to have concrete results which will be tangible and which will allow (us) to alleviate problems, including on the worldwide agenda", he told reporters.

Given the alleged subterfuge, various former officials and experts chimed in with questions on the wisdom of letting the photographer and his equipment into the Oval Office.

In his post, Scherbak said that he had undergone all White House security checks.
