"We do not know what it is, but we know it must be something extraordinary because no rational politician, no rational president would act this way if he weren't being blackmailed on some level".
California Rep. Ed Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said there is "no way" that Trump should be comparing the actions of USA intelligence agencies to that of Putin's Kremlin.
"We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security", Mr Coats said. Ryan says Russian Federation "remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals".
Wallah noted meanwhile, that Trump is not annoyed from the current situation, "as he considers that the USA forces who are deployed overseas pose economic burden on Washington".
Some such as former Canadian ambassador Ferry de Kerckhove would like to see Trudeau work with allies to take a more assertive stand with Trump when it comes to defending shared values, which he argued is easier now than ever with North American free trade talks having stalled. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Putin told Fox News commentator Chris Wallace.
"I do not believe that Russian Federation is a friend of the United States", McMorris Rodgers said.
The Arizona Senator said: "Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".
Putin "just said it is not Russian Federation".
Toomey, R-Lehigh Valley, didn't mention Trump by name in his statement but instead attacked Putin.
When pressed by Wallace about the hacking, Putin later went on to say: "Listen to me, please: The information that I am aware of, there is nothing false about it, every single grain of it is true".
"Now in Trump's defense, he has a good point", Noah said.
"Not always - well, haven't presidents been killed in the United States?"
