Rep. Adam Schiff: Trump Acts ‘Like Someone who is Compromised’ by Putin

A Maine native is on the list of U.S. officials that Russian President Vladimir Putin says he'd like his prosecutors to interrogate

Barletta attacked Democrats - who had criticized Trump's suggestion at the Helsinki summit that he believes Putin's denial of interfering in the 2016 elections - and, echoing the White House, Barletta stressed the potential for U.S. -Russia cooperation in world affairs.

But public reaction nationally appears more muted than in Washington, where Trump faced withering bipartisan criticism for appearing to side with Putin over USA intelligence agencies at a Monday news conference in Helsinki.

Numerous politicians have criticised Mr Trump for his post-summit statements raising doubts about Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, and past and current intelligence community officials also differed with many of his statements.

As for the Helsinki meeting, "now we have Putin telling the world what was decided", she said, while "we're hearing crickets from the White House; nothing has been put out that contradicts or replaces Putin's agenda".

While the White House has said Mr. Trump could sit down with Putin once again this fall, Graham cautioned the president, saying that there needs to be a new set of strict sanctions imposed on Russian Federation before any meeting. "There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies". I can tell you there may be times that we need to do that. At the same time, Graham shot down the suggestion that the interpreter who sat in with Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin should appear before Congress.

President Donald Trump reportedly fawned over Russian President Vladimir Putin to his aides after they met for a high stakes summit in Helsinki last week. We are hearing no rebuttal or comment from the United States. And instead the president did not show the strength that an American president, I believe, should have shown at that moment.

She said: "President Trump asked (national security adviser John Bolton) to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway".

Mr. Coats has been under scrutiny since he said he wished Mr. Trump had not met one-on-one with Mr. Putin and expressed dismay that he had publicly undermined USA intelligence agencies. He asked his interviewer, "Say that again, did I hear you?"

"So President Obama knew about Russian Federation before the Election", Trump tweeted.

"They didn't agree on anything, unlike what's been reported by, apparently by, the Russian government in a way to mislead us", Bossert said on ABC's "This Week". He walked back that statement a day later, saying he'd meant to say he didn't see why Russian Federation wouldn't be involved.

MENENDEZ: Well, I would have liked him to have said, look, President Putin, we know that you interfered in our 2016 elections and that you are doing it now and that's not a question, that's a statement and here are consequences to it.

On Thursday, the White House issued a statement saying Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer.

Former presidential candidate and one of Mr Trump's strongest allies Newt Gingrich branded the comments during the meeting with Putin "the most serious mistake of his presidency" and urged the US President to immediately correct himself.
