Trump tells Fox News' Sean Hannity that Putin "said as strongly as you can say it, they have no information on Trump".

He says "it's a shame" that he and Putin had to answer questions about the investigation into Russian election interference.

Two Mid-Hudson congressmen have found fault with President Trump's performance at Monday's Helsinki news conference with Russian President Putin.

When asked about Coat's assessment in an interview with CBS news Saturday, President Trump said "I don't know if I agree with that". He is denying state-sanctioned Russian interference in the election.

Meanwhile, Democratic U.S. Sen.

"In order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!"

PRESIDENT Trump won the 2016 election by portraying himself as the strong leader America needed.

"Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president".

Trump has always been at odds with his own intelligence community, largely clashing over a report released by USA intelligence officials concluding that Putin ordered "an influence campaign" in 2016 aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. But it is in line with his comment in reference to a previous Putin denial that "I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it".

On Friday, a US special counsel announced indictments of 12 Russian spies on charges of hacking Democratic Party computer networks as part of the election meddling, the second set of charges against Russians in an investigation that Trump calls a political witch hunt. "President Trump needs to stop treating Putin like a friend and start holding him accountable". "The flaw is that Vladimir Putin is not interested in a better working relationship".

The summit began just hours after Trump blamed the United States - and not Russian election meddling or its annexation of Crimea - for a low-point in U.S. -Russia relations. And the detailed allegations in the indictment make clear that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mueller's team believe they were able to pinpoint the hackers by name and establish how the cyberattacks unfolded.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, weighed in after the summit.

"They have no information on Trump", Trump said.

Both sides say they met the treaty caps earlier this year, but Russian Federation has raised questions about the US conversion of some submarines and bombers to carry conventional weapons, saying it has no way to verify they can not also be used for nuclear arms.

The speaker of the house of Representatives of Congress Paul Ryan said that he had "no doubt" that Moscow interfered in the elections of 2016 in the United States, and that trump "should appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally".

He also called special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's meddling a "disaster", during a joint press conference with Putin.

He said the agreement would allow US officials to request that Russian authorities interrogate the 12 suspects, adding that USA officials could request to be present in such interrogations.

Also on Monday, the United States government charged a Russian woman with conspiracy to act as an agent of the Russian Federation.

Browder was a driving force behind a U.S. law targeting Russian officials over human rights abuses.

Asked directly by Wallace if Russian Federation had "kompromat" - or "compromising material" - on Trump, Putin denounced the allegations as "utter nonsense".

"I don't want to insult President Trump when I say this - and I may come as rude - but before he announced that he will run for presidency, he was of no interest for us".

President Donald Trump said he sees no reason why Russian Federation would have interfered in the 2016 election. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected--immediately.

"The President can't seem to separate collusion, which is whether his campaign cooperated, and what they did", says King.
