US president Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin is likely to meet next month, Trump will discuss about Russian meddling in 2016 presidential election said, National Security Advisor John Bolton on Sunday.
Speaking about the meddling, Bolton told the “Fox News Sunday” program: “I think it’s something that we’re concerned about. That’s why the president is going to speak with him about it again.”
“The election meddling issue was definitely something we talked about,” Bolton told the CBS “Face the Nation” program. Bolton said he brought up both the 2016 election and Russian activities in upcoming congressional elections.
US intelligence agencies have alleged that Russian hackers had tried to help Trump win the White House, something Russia has flatly denied. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump’s campaign worked with Moscow. Trump denies any collusion and has called the probe a “witch hunt.”
Putin last month said patriotic Russian hackers may have staged cyber attacks against countries that had strained relations with Moscow and denied state intervention – a departure from the Kremlin’s previous denials of any Russian interference.
“Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!” Trump tweeted last week.
