GOP leaders still have questions about Trump's meeting with Putin

Trump made the comments in a series of early morning tweets after his highly criticized meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland and his visit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries.

But even as Trump said he accepted USA intelligence agencies' conclusions that Russian Federation was behind the election hacking, he added, as he has before: "It could be other people also". "Sort of a double negative", he said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that Trump does believe that Russian Federation may try to target USA elections again and the "threat still exists".

During his news conference along side Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Trump stated he didn't see "any reason" why Russian Federation was responsible for hacking the 2016 election, as USA intelligence agencies have found.

"I will begin by stating that I have full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies, I always have", Mr. Trump said at the top of a meeting with members of Congress.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Hurd, who is a former CIA officer and member of the House Intelligence Committee, if he trusted Trump's ability to speak on behalf of U.S. interests.

"Oops, they just turned off the light", Trump joked. "Many positive things will come out of that meeting".

President Donald Trump gave the go-ahead to announce new Russian election-hacking indictments before his meeting with Vladimir Putin rather than after - in the hopes it would strengthen his hand in the talks, according to accounts from people familiar with the decision. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

"I don't get it - I just don't get it", said Fox Business host Trish Regan, who occasionally pushes back on Trump and the GOP, arguing that Trump either should have defended the intelligence community and condemned Putin to his face or not taken the meeting in Helsinki.

"He's held aloft by his base for now, but the base alone is not sufficient and I think we're in for a rough ride this fall."

He did not directly mention Mr Trump, but his comments were clearly a response to the President's heavily criticised performance in Helsinki.

This means that the poll registered no drop in Trump's approval from the outrage expressed on many cable news channels and on social media.

Lawmakers from both parties have been sounding the alarm over fresh interference by Russian Federation as they push to fortify US election infrastructure ahead of the midterm elections.

Trump also crossed out a line about bringing those involved "in that meddling to justice", and that's because "he hates the notion that there could be any sense of justice, fairness under law, that involves punishing him or anyone around him", Cuomo said. "This is about the Russians undermining the U.S., not about Donald Trump".

That last sentence was what he corrected Tuesday.
