Trump shamelessly starts undoing sanctions against Russian Federation for election interference

In the same statement, he declared 35 Russian intelligence agents "persona non grata", forcing them to leave the U.S. US media reported earlier in the day that both the US Congress and Federal Bureau of Investigation were looking into whether Sessions and Kislyak met at Trump's campaign event in April 2016.

Trump's administration had initially proposed returning the compounds to the Russians in exchange for permission to resume construction on a USA consulate in St. Petersburg.

Most U.S. intelligence officials can relay stories of run-ins with Russian intelligence operatives - often moonlighting as lobbyists, diplomats and businessmen - hanging around popular Washington happy hours. Sources told the outlet that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, in a Washington, D.C., meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, that return of the compounds would not be contingent upon consulate construction.

Stan Wawrinka beats Mischa Zverev, retains Geneva Open title
Victory against Zverev avenged a defeat when Wawrinka last faced him, at another Swiss tournament in Basel last October. The Russia-born German's second runner-up finish comes more than six years after his first, at Metz, France.

One of the least-discussed aspects of the current scandal enveloping the Trump administration over Russian contact is that Russia nearly inarguably at this point engaged in an act of information warfare.

The facilities, long believed to be used for intelligence gathering, were cleaned out on December 29 as then-President Obama slammed Russian Federation with sanctions for its alleged role in trying to influence the 2016 election.

In late December 2016, the Obama administration introduced a new round of sanctions against some Russian companies, the Federal Security Service and the Main Intelligence Agency of Russia's General Staff. The Russian government was unable to offer a similar response, which for Putin and his cabinet raises a question of whether the US has no spies, or whether the Russians are just bad at finding them.

Rubio 'not optimistic' on Middle East peace
Rubio also said that Palestinian leaders do not view peace the same was as many lawmakers in the United States. His first day of the Israeli trip ended with a joint speech with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu .

Senior Tillerson adviser R.C. Hammond told the Post that "U.S. and Russian Federation have reached no agreements", but Moscow is talking like it's a done deal.

A senior US official who deals with foreign policy told NBC News that the deal could happen because the Trump administration is intent on improving relations with Russian Federation despite investigations into alleged ties with his 2016 campaign.

"I think it's quite scandalous that they chose to throw out our kids", said Churkin, who died in February.
