White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that Trump actually was saying "no" to answering additional questions - even though he subsequently went on to address Russian Federation.

"It is very weird, you can't bash your own country like that - especially when you're the president", one host noted, according to a transcript provided by Russian media analyst Julia Davis. Susan Collins of ME said of Trump's one-word response.

"It is very weird, you can't bash your own country like that - especially when you're the President".

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said Trump needed to wake up to Russia's efforts to interfere in American elections. Earlier in the day, when asked by ABC News" Cecilia Vega if Russian Federation is still targeting the U.S., President Trump replied: "Thank you very much, no." "No?

Turning over former US Ambassador Michael McFaul to Russian Federation for questioning would be grounds for impeaching President Donald Trump, Rep. Eric Swalwell declared on Wednesday.

"I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as now constituted", President Trump told CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor.

One such opportunity is what Trump termed an "incredible offer" from Putin to allow the USA access to Russians accused of election hacking and other interference.

Massie then suggested that as long as there is a cold war between Russian Federation and the United States, the D.C. swamp will continue to make money.

"The president also sees this as an opportunity, as he said many times, to be able to work with Russian Federation". And the scripted cleanup pertained only to the least defensible of his comments. Instead, he went into a rambling response, including demands for investigation of Hillary Clinton's email server and his description of Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denial of meddling. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., that would slap new sanctions on Russian Federation or any other country caught posting ads, running fake news or otherwise interfering with election infrastructure. Sanders said Trump believes the threat from Russian Federation to undermine those elections still exists.

Trump declined to dub the Russian leader a liar.

"Also, the rest of us less intelligent people in America thought your performance in Helsinki was disgraceful", Lieu said. And he did not address his other problematic statements during a weeklong Europe tour, in which he sent the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance into emergency session and assailed British Prime Minister Theresa May as she was hosting him for an official visit. "There was no collusion at all".

In a series of early morning Twitter posts, the Republican president said the summit would eventually produce "big results" and accused his critics of "Trump Derangement Syndrome". "It's 24 hours too late and in the wrong place", he said.

Trump returned to the subject of his relationship with Putin later Wednesday morning, asserting that some people would rather go to war than see him get along well with Putin. "The president was ... said, "Thank you very much, ' and was saying 'no" to answering questions", Sanders insisted.

Van Hollen said Trump "isn't willing to protect the integrity of our democracy in the United States, so Congress has to act".

In exchange, the Russian president offered to allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller to observe interrogations of 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted by a US grand jury last week for hacking Democratic Party e-mail accounts.

"In a 51-49 Senate, all we need is one person who wants to be on the right side of history".

In the House, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi staged a vote in support of the intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election. A similar vote Tuesday in the House failed on a party-line vote.
