US President Donald Trump has boarded a plane from Scotland after his four-day visit to the UK.

Paul, when asked if he wants President Donald Trump to hold Russia "accountable" for interfering in the elections, went to new lengths trying to downplay the severity of the Russian interference and the subsequent probe into the events, headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In a major development to the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential elections, the U.S. justice department has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for "hacking" the Democratic National Committee, BBC reported.

He said he expects talks with Mr Putin to produce "nothing bad" and "maybe some good".

President Donald Trump can find a mean word to say about nearly anyone: Pope Francis, a Gold Star family, Arizona Sen.

But in advance of the high-stakes summit - where many observers say Putin has scored a win just by showing up - Trump's reputation has been getting a makeover.

Asked if he would discuss extradition with Putin, Trump said that he "might".

Huntsman added: "The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off-the-charts high so it's a good thing these presidents are getting together". "I think we need to be done with this, so we can start actually protecting our elections from foreign countries".

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question, and hopefully we'll have a good relationship with Russian Federation", he told a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

In response to Trump's remarks, Tusk said the European Union and the USA are "best friends". He now flies to Finland for a meeting with Putin.

We will remind, in July of 2016 before the Congress of the democratic party, which Hillary Clinton endorsed a presidential candidate, on the website WikiLeaks has appeared correspondence between the functionaries of the party from which it became clear that the leadership provided her the necessary assistance in the fight against the competitor of Bernie Sanders.

Browder worked with Congress to get the Magnitsky Act passed, preventing foreigners who violate human rights from entering the U.S. He once ran one of the largest foreign investment funds in Russian companies from 1996-2006.

Instead, Mr Paul said Mr Trump and other U.S. officials should focus on safeguarding upcoming elections from interference.

The Russian intelligence agents registered the website DCLeaks.com and started a Facebook page and Twitter feed claiming they were "American hacktivists", it said. He has said he would raise the issue with Putin in their summit but has suggested it would be perfunctory.

In regards to the Mueller investigation and the indictment of the military officers, he said that it took place during the Obama administration. "But we'll also be talking about other things".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News that the summit is "still on".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov hit out at Mr Trump's criticism of the planned Russian gas pipeline to Germany and also suggested it would be hard to find common ground on Syria because of differences over Iran.

"Unfortunately, no matter how well I do at the Summit, if I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all the sins and evils committed by Russian Federation over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn't good enough - that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!"
