Trump himself declared his summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki a success, in what he called the "proud tradition of bold American diplomacy."The president said he pressed Putin about Moscow's interference in the election, but he appeared to take Putin's denial at face value, just days after a grand jury indicted 12 Russian intelligence agents on election-related charges. This episode: political reporter Asma Khalid, national political correspondent Mara Liasson, national security editor Phil Ewing, and White House reporter Ayesha Rascoe.
