"Who do you believe?", Lemire had asked, referring to Trump's well established disbelief in the US intelligence community's ironclad conclusions about Russia's efforts to subvert America's democracy.

The problem is that President Trump's controversial stance on Russian Federation comes down to more than just a few letters.

The senator said he had no problem with Trump meeting Putin at the White House in the fall.

The potential for Trump to host Putin at the White House later this year for a follow-up summit drew bipartisan opposition in the wake of last week's meeting. Mr. Gabuev said Russian Federation was just following "standard protocol" in getting the word out.

"The only plot here is the plot to interfere in our elections by the Russians", he said.

In an interview with CBS Evening News, which was released in part on Wednesday evening, Trump was asked whether he holds Putin personally responsible for the meddling in 2016.

"The president either needs to rely on the people that he has chosen to advise him, or those advisers need to re-evaluate whether or not they can serve in this administration", Gowdy said on Fox News Sunday, referring to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley.

Schiff classified Trump's face-to-face summit with Putin with only translators present as being "productive for Vladimir Putin".

Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev said Moscow was awaiting Washington's response to a series of proposals for the two sides to work together on reconstruction in Syria and the return of more than a million Syrian refugees to their home country.

That's because nobody knows what happened during the private two-hour meeting. "If you were really tough with Putin he would not be doing what he's doing".

He tweeted Monday as criticism of his comments started to emerge, stating his confidence in U.S. intelligence, but also pushed the necessity for a close working relationship with Russian Federation.

Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, called his comments "bizarre and flat-out wrong"; Arizona's Jeff Flake deemed them "shameful"; and Lindsey Graham of SC said they will be perceived as "a sign of weakness". The White House had to come out and issue another clarification, insisting it would not be happening.

"It needs to be accepted as fact by everybody in our government because we need to respond to that reality and it's a significant threat", Fitzpatrick said. "OK, that's going to be special".

Trump decided Thursday morning to have national security adviser John Bolton schedule a second summit and officially invite Putin to visit, The Washington Post has reported.

It has been one of the most controversial weeks of Donald Trump's presidency but has it damaged his popularity?

But the same poll showed overwhelming support for Trump's handling of the Putin meeting among Republicans, with 68 percent giving the meeting their approval compared to just eight percent of Democrats.
