JOHN ROBERTS (FOX NEWS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT): So the president very much playing the role of the peacemaker here, trying to thaw the ice, trying to break off some chips on the rocky relationship between these two countries, and trying to put things on a smoother path. Now, his critics are going to rip him for cozying up to Russia. There's no question about that. We're already hearing that from John Brennan, Nancy Pelosi, and other people. But for the president, he came into the Helsinki meeting, summit, whatever you want to call it, wanting to improve the relationship, and it looks like he is on the road to do that.
