  • Dem Sen Merkley: ‘Likely’ Putin Has Something on Trump
    Monday during an interview with Buzzfeed editor Ben Smith, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) said it was “likely” that Russian President Vladimir Putin had “something close” to a video tape of President Donald Trump with prostitutes. Smith asked, “Do you think Vladimir Putin has something on him?” Merkley said, “I think it’s likely, yeah.” He continued, “It’s a standard strategy of Russia when people visit there who are important to try to get compromising information on them, to set them up with hookers, to tape everything that goes on in their room, so it’s likely that they have that.” When asked if the pee tape is real, Merkley responded, “Something close to that. Something close to that.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN ... read more

  • CNN’s Acosta: Trump-Putin Summit ‘Feels Like a Wedding,’ Don’t Know Which Side Is Bride, Which Is Groom
    Monday on CNN, while reporting from Helsinki, White House correspondent Jim Acosta said President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin felt like a “wedding.” Acosta said, “I don’t know which side is the bride and which side is the groom. It sort of feels like we’re at a wedding here. And on the other side of the room are our friends from the Russian Federation and other journalists who have been credentialed by the Kremlin.” He added, “I think when the president of the United States tweets that the press in the United States are the enemy of the people and he attacks members of the press as ‘fake news’ and so on, I don’t think it would be a profile encouraged to come in here, give statements having assembled these members of the press and not take any questions. It seems to me when you dish it out, you ought to be able to take it. If the press is going to refer to the press corps of the United States as the enemy of the people, he owes it to the rest of us here to take a couple of questions.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN ... read more

  • NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Trump-Putin Summit: ‘Very Clear to Me That Vladimir Putin Has the Upper Hand’
    Monday on NBC’s “Today,” network chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell declared Russian President Vladimir Putin has the “upper hand” in his meeting with Donald Trump. Mitchell claimed the United States president “handed Putin a propaganda victory” by praising him and then turning around and slamming the two countries’ poor relationship on Twitter. “It’s very clear to me that Vladimir Putin has the upper hand just from the optics of it and the fact that the president went in praising him, saying how important better relations were,” Mitchell stated. “No one would argue about that, but he had just, on Twitter, blamed the worsening relationship … on past stupidity, he said, by prior administrations and what he called the ‘rigged witch-hunt.’” “[H]e has already handed Putin a propaganda victory,” she added.
