In Russia, Sen. Rand Paul delivers letter from Trump to Vladimir Putin

The document fails to address questions raised

Yet the White House said after Paul's declaration that it was the Kentucky senator who had requested the letter to Putin - and that Trump included in the letter issues that Paul has raised.

US Senator Rand Paul has said he delivered a letter from US President Donald Trump to Vladimir Putin's administration. He says the letter emphasized the importance of working together on counter-terrorism, legislative talks and cultural exchanges.

At the time, uncertainty about what Mr Trump and Mr Putin discussed during the private meeting in which members of the press were also banished from caused a stir.

Christopher J. Gagin, who revealed he was the Republican Party chairman from OH who resigned after the Helsinki summit, pointed out that Trump defended Putin's denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Paul has been in Russia this week and has met with Russian lawmakers in a trip he sees as a continuation of Trump's diplomatic outreach to Putin. The White House plans to impose sanctions over foreign interference in United States elections, The Washington Post said.

The White house declined to comment on Politico this information, but a denial of the fact that trump received any such documents.

Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the Kremlin has not yet examined the letter Paul presented. However, he undermined those remarks when he quickly returned to calling the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt", and referred to Russian interference as a "hoax". Congressional elections will take place in November.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio wants a vote on a bill called DETER that would impose new sanctions if US intelligence officials determine Russian Federation meddled in USA elections.

"The Russian document outlines a host of areas where the two countries could work together to reduce nuclear dangers and rebuild some of their lost trust".

The draft of the order viewed by the Post would allow the USA government to impose sanctions on any foreign individual or entity that sticks their nose in a US election.
