Donald Trump denies revealing highly classified information to Russian Federation

Relations between the United States and Russian Federation have never been so bad after the Cold War and are not expected to "make any fresh start", said the head of USA diplomacy.

USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson and national security advisor General HR McMaster said Trump did not discuss "sources, methods or military operations" in a meeting with Lavrov last week.

McCain goes on to write, "With those words, Secretary Tillerson sent a message to oppressed people everywhere, 'Don't look to the United States for hope".

Tillerson said he thinks it's in the interest of the American people and of those around the world that the US tries to improve its relationship with Russian Federation. You can not start with a clean slate. They are part of everything we do. "We don't give anyone a free pass on any of them", he said.

School Budgets Comfortably Approved in Local Districts
The $180,486,940 operating budget is a $7.8 million, or 4.5 percent, increase over this year's $172.7 million budget. The owner of a home assessed at the township average will pay $98 more in school taxes during the next year.

Discussing Russia and the election has become something of a minefield for Trump's senior aides.

The top USA diplomat spoke before Donald Trump leaves on May 19 for his first overseas trip as president, and days after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election campaign.

Trump himself has acknowledged the USA intelligence finding that interference occurred, but says its effect can not be known.

"I will never compromise my own values, Chuck. and my values are those of the country."

He then had an MRI in Dubai two days later that eventually saw him sidelined for six weeks and missing four events on both the European and PGA Tours.

Tillerson said the sudden dismissal of Comey, less than four years into a 10-year term, didn't create concerns about how much independence he would have as America's top diplomat.

Mr McMaster said he had not reached out to any of the US's foreign intelligence-sharing partners on the issue, but was "not concerned" that they would cease operations. The president, it is said, had not slept well. "I think it's been well documented, it's pretty well understood the nature of that interference here and elsewhere", he said.

"The president, I think, has made it clear that he feels it's important that we reengage with Russia", Tillerson told NBC's "Meet The Press".

Such was the atmosphere when he met Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, last Wednesday.
