Sen. Rand Paul invites Russian lawmakers to Washington

The senator posted about the meeting on his official Facebook page. "I'm pleased to announce that we will be furthering this conversation".

Paul said that members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the upper house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council, had been invited "to come to the United States to meet with us in Washington".

At the conclusion of the hourlong meeting between Paul and Kosachev, Kosachev reiterated Russian President Vladimir Putin's claim that his government did not interfere in the 2016 USA election. "[Monday], I met with Chairman Kosachev, and we agreed on the importance of continued dialogue".

Kosachev is the man alleged to have met with Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen in June 2016, in Prague according to the Steele Dossier.

Senator Rand Paul, one of President Trump's more eager defenders on Russian Federation, jetted into Moscow on Monday in a bid to increase engagement with the country. "Meanwhile, my Trump-defending opponent Don Huffines chose to go on a Moscow adventure this week with Rand Paul instead, to "improve parliamentary relations" with Russian Federation".

Trump was criticized after the summit with Putin for supporting the Russian leader's denial Moscow was involved in meddling in the 2016 US election.

Shelby's delegation said it had come with the similar goal of reviving communications with Russia, but had also delivered a warning to the Russians not to interfere in the US mid-terms this November.

"Of course, Mr. Paul is yet to discuss these ideas with his colleagues after returning to Washington", Kosachyov said.

"We had general discussions about a lot of issues", Paul responded. "So we're not going to get into any of the differences other than we are trying to agree to have dialogue".

Senior Russian lawmaker Konstantin Kosachev, who was also in the room, reiterated the Russian position that "there was no interference in 2016", adding "there of course will not be any interference in the elections this year".
