Russia's Spy Chief Visited Washington Amid Publication of 'Kremlin List'

Russia's Spy Chief Visited Washington Amid Publication of 'Kremlin List'

One U.S. official said the director's tough public remarks seemed at odds with some of the private messages that the agency is receiving to look for ways to work with Russian Federation.

The U.S. ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, told a Russian radio station on Tuesday that CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently met with Russian spy officials, but he did not say where the meeting occurred or say specifically who attended.

Reuters cites two unnamed U.S. sources as having confirmed the meetings, which included "U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and other U.S. intelligence officials".

In a radio interview in Moscow on January 30, the USA ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, said Pompeo had indeed met with Russian spy officials, but he did not say where the meeting occurred or say specifically who attended.

Speaking on the Russian Federation 1 TV channel, Antonov said that even during the "hardest times", contacts between the special services have continued.

According to multiple US intelligence agencies, Russian Federation interefered in the 2016 USA presidential election in a bid to help secure the election of Donald Trump-and the SVR played a key role.

Naryshkin's trip to the United States raised concerns among some US senators. Did any White House or National Security Council meet with Naryshkin?

President Donald Trump has called many times for reconciliation with Russian Federation, arguing that the country is an essential partner to addressing security challenges in Iran, North Korea and elsewhere.

Talks between top U.S. and Russian intelligence officials occurred just days before Pompeo once again warned that Russia will attempt to meddle in the 2018 U.S. midterm elections and the Trump administration released a sweeping list of prominent Russian political and business figures in defiance of Moscow.

The Argentine has a contract until 2021 and the plan is for him to lead Spurs into their newly renovated stadium next season. However, a potential Old Trafford reunion certainly won't be happening anytime soon, according to the player himself.

Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday also demanded to know why Naryshkin, who is on the sanctions list, was allowed to enter the United States. During a trip to Asia in November, the president said Russian Federation had been "very heavily sanctioned" and urged "it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken". "The Trump administration must immediately come clean and answer questions".

"While we do not discuss the schedules of USA intelligence leaders, rest assured that any interaction with foreign intelligence agencies would have been conducted in accordance with USA law and in consultation with appropriate departments and agencies", a CIA spokesman said.

"By imposing no new sanctions under CAATSA mandates, the USA remains vulnerable to an emboldened Russian government in advance of this November's congressional elections", 24 Democratic senators wrote in a letter to Trump Tuesday night.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a frequent critic of Trump's treatment of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government, said the timing of the trip was suspicious.

The Post noted that Moscow and the US have shared information on terrorism in the past, but the process is not usually so robust or close.

"I haven't seen a significant decrease in their activity", he said.

The meeting comes amid heightened concerns about Russia's aggression overseas - something about which Trump's own national security strategy warned and Pompeo himself addressed on Monday. However, meetings between foreign intelligence chiefs, even from rival nations, are mostly kept secret but are not unusual, Reuters reports.

The directors of Russia's three main intelligence and espionage agencies all traveled to the USA capital in recent days, in what observers said was a highly unusual occurrence coming at a time of heightened U.S.
