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.

"Well, I certainly think he's acting like someone who's compromised, and it may very well be that he is compromised or it may very well be that he believes that he's compromised, that the Russians have information on him", Schiff said.

"There's no ignoring the fact that for whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised".

Schiff's comments as controversy continues to swirl over Trump's unwilling to denounce Russian election meddling to Putin's face, something that Trump threw flames on Sunday night when he sent out a tweet declaring Russia's meddling "a hoax." . I have President Putin.

"I think he should've been stronger, standing up for the fact that Putin has interfered in the past, is still doing it in the future". And I think we're entitled to know.

And he reissued his criticism of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for how it handled its application to snoop on Carter Page, a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser who was the subject of a "targeted recruitment" by the Russian government, according to the late Saturday release of previously top-secret documents used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain a wiretap the former aide. "He just said it's not Russia", Trump said, according to transcripts. He said that because of Trump's lack of political background, there was at times a clash between Trump's approach to Putin and the more hardline approach other politicians might have delivered in his position.

The Post-ABC poll, conducted Wednesday through Friday, finds that overall, 33 percent of Americans approve of Trump's handling of his meeting with Putin, while 50 percent disapprove.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Sunday that President Donald Trump's top advisers should consider resigning if he doesn't follow their advice on Russian Federation.

Now it appears Mr Trump has changed his tune again as he took to Twitter on Sunday to say Russia's interference in the Presidential election was "all a big hoax".

"He offered for - or he seemed to be willing to consider an offer to hand over our ambassador to Russia, former ambassador Michael McFaul and others to - the Russians for questioning". Yet even as Bossert called the talks "productive", he pushed back at Russia's emerging narrative that the two leaders had privately made agreements that would run counter to previously stated USA policy. "He thinks the way to make Russian Federation stronger is to weaken America and as long as we're clear about it, I think it's important that the nations speak to one another and that our leaders speak to one another".

On "State of the Union", Rubio said Putin is not interested in better relations and wants to get an advantage.

Trump spent days trying to reassure the country that he accepts that the longtime foe interfered in the 2016 election after his public undermining of US intelligence agencies in Helsinki while standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin. "There's no inherent problem with two leaders, even from hostile countries, engaging in dialogue". That's why such a large segment of President's Trump's remarks during the question and answer period in Helsinki focused not on Russia's meddling, but on the questions of whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation or whether Russia's meddling affected the outcome of the election.

"The possibility of a civil war in Nicaragua is real", Rubio said.

But, Barletta's campaign said, "our adversarial relationship should not derail efforts to find common ground through diplomacy on important issues like stabilizing Syria and denuclearization - just like our stalwart alliances with European nations should not handcuff United States policy from requesting trade fairness and full North Atlantic Treaty Organisation payments".
