Trey Gowdy says Russian meddling clear, Donald Trump must 'act like it'

Trump's public doubting of Russia's culpability for interference in 2016 - though he tried to "clarify" his remarks a day later - sparked bipartisan condemnation in Washington and sparked congressional lawmakers to look once again for ways to tighten sanctions on the longtime US foe.

In Washington, D.C., the bipartisan response to Trump's handling of the Putin summit was fiercely critical.

Trump reportedly complained to his staff about having to face AP reporter Jonathan Lemire's questions about whether or not he still believed Putin's denials about Russia's election interference, and whether he would call out and condemn that interference right then and there in front of the Russian leader.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll found that just one-third of Americans (33 percent) approve of how Trump handled his meeting with Putin whereas 50 percent did not.

Speaking to Howard Kurtz on Fox News' "Media Buzz" on Sunday, Spicer said that Trump had admitted to fumbling his words when he appeared to side with Putin and cast doubts on USA intelligence conclusions about Russian meddling, but added that Trump in the past had spoken very clearly about Russian hacking.

Trump has since offered differing answers to the same question.

The director of national intelligence said to the interviewer "say that again" and laughed, as he cupped his hand over his ear on live television.

At the same time, the top House investigator said he hasn't seen any evidence that Mr. Trump actively colluded with Russians to gain an advantage during the 2016 campaign.

Mr Trump later made clear he supported the United States intelligence community's findings about Russian meddling.

"And on a party line basis the Republicans rejected it", Schiff said.

Six days after Trump's sit-down in Helsinki with Putin, guests on the Sunday news shows were still trying to interpret his head-scratching performance in which he sided with Putin over the USA intelligence agencies - only to walk back his comments a day later.

Since the summit, the White House has been engulfed in crisis after crisis as Trump dug himself into a deeper hole vis-a-vis Russian Federation even after arriving back in the US. He added his administration will take "strong action" to secure the country's election process.

"What I think is indisputable is that they did interfere and they will do so in the future", Rubio said on CNN's "State of the Union".

The U.S. Senate rebuked the president for not outright rejecting the proposal, overwhelmingly passing a non-binding resolution against allowing Russian Federation to question U.S. officials.
