Russia: US Senator Make Unofficial Visit

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

Rand Paul says ‘big mistake’ not to have dialogue with Moscow, invites Russian MPs to DC

A group of USA senators, on a visit to Moscow on Monday, said they have invited Russian lawmakers to Washington later this year in a bid to help ease tensions between the two countries.

Paul announced that he had "invited members of the foreign affairs committee of Russian Federation to come to the United States to meet with us in Washington", after meeting with Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Russia's upper house.

The chairman of the Russian global relations committee, Konstantin Kosachev, thanked Paul and said he hoped the meetings could happen before the end of the year.

Musk's tweet halted trading of the company's shares on Tuesday afternoon for 92 minutes, leaving Tesla investors in a frenzy. Six of nine members said in a prepared statement Wednesday that Musk began talking with the board about the move last week.

Kosachev said Paul "has access" to Trump and top USA officials "and we expect that we will be able to convey through him our signals" of a desire to establish dialogue, according to the state-run RIA Novosti news service.

"I think it would be a very big mistake not to have open lines of communication", Paul said.

The senator and other members of Congress are now in Moscow meeting with government officials. The panel is the Russian counterpart to the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Trump's Helsinki meeting was panned by a number of prominent Republican officials who said the president appeared to side with Putin over top US intelligence officials. "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. He was accompanied by Peter Goettler, Cato's president and chief executive, and Don Huffines, a Texas state senator who was chairman of Mr. Paul's presidential campaign in the state.

Paul said that Russian officials would discuss nuclear non-proliferation and combatting terrorism in Washington. Paul has been one of Trump's most outspoken supporters following the criticism Trump faced - including from some within his own party - for the US President's handling of his meeting with Putin in July.
