  • The Day After Trump Admits to Attempted Collusion, Rand Paul Invites Russian Delegation to Washington

"We will continue our conversation with our American counterparts tomorrow on these and other most likely regional issues of the global agenda", Slutsky said, according to Russian state media. Our conversation further encouraged me that open dialogue between our two nations does not have to be a thing of the past.

The Kentucky senator also announced that members of Russia's Foreign Relations Committee have agreed to visit Washington, D.C. where meetings are expected to continue.

In addition to the invitation to the U.S., Paul said he'd like to organize a larger, future meeting. "I consider this to be very important." said Paul, after meeting with Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of Russia's foreign affairs committee. Kosachev said a preliminary agenda had already been agreed upon, which would focus on arms control, improving economic ties and establishing better contacts on terrorism and cyber-security.

During Monday's meeting, Paul reportedly invited Russian lawmakers to meet with more members of the U.S. Congress. Paul was one of the few Republicans who defended the president in the resulting backlash.

Monday's whirlwind visit to Moscow, however, was not part of official diplomacy. Richard Shelby of Alabama that traveled to Moscow around July 4.

Paul, known for some of his unorthodox positions in the Senate, has recently emerged as a champion of Trump's outreach to Russian Federation.

Trump endured days of intense bipartisan criticism for his performance at a joint press conference, where he cited Putin's "powerful" denials of Russian interference.

At the beginning of July, a group of United States senators met with Russian officials ahead of the Helsinki summit between Trump and Putin.

But she said she was under the impression that Mr Manafort had been directing his deputies' actions and "knew what was going on". Dmytro Shymkiv, an official in Poroshenko's administration, said in an email that he was "not aware" of any such relationship.

Trump has repeatedly said he wants to improve relations with Russian Federation, which are severely strained.

In Moscow, he made a similar case for engagement.

"The president believes that the next bilateral meeting with President Putin should take place after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over, so we've agreed that it will be after the first of the year", said National Security Adviser John Bolton in late July.

"It does not mean that we have no differences, it does not mean that we will not, on occasion, have discussions back and forth where we disagree".
