He said it only required some specifics about United States compliance to be discussed.

Senator Marco Rubio wants a vote on a bill called DETER that would impose new sanctions if USA intelligence officials determine Russian Federation meddled in US elections.

The issue bubbled up again Wednesday, when Trump was asked by a reporter if Russian Federation was still trying to meddle in US elections, particularly the upcoming midterms.

A pair of prominent Republican U.S. senators said on Sunday that the United States needs to prepare new sanctions against Russian Federation to discourage interference in upcoming elections.

The problem is that President Trump's controversial stance on Russian Federation comes down to more than just a few letters.

After he left Helsinki, Trump reportedly grew frustrated with the negative media coverage of what he thought was a successful summit, complaining to aides there was not enough focus on the responsibility the Democratic National Committee had in the hacking of its servers.

It has prompted calls for the subpoenaing of the notes taken by the USA translator who was in the room at the time and even calls for her to testify before a congressional hearing.

Trump appeared to answer, "No".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, is urging President Trump to safeguard the US election process ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, telling the president to "lead this nation to make sure the 2018 election is protected".

In an interview with CBS Evening News, which was released in part on Wednesday evening, Trump was asked whether he holds Putin personally responsible for the meddling in 2016.

"Well I would, because he's in charge of the country". There was also Putin's controversial suggestion that the USA could sit in on the questioning of the 12 indicted Russians - but only if the US would allow Russia to question of Americans whom the Kremlin has accused of committing "illegal activities".

Trump said he would consider Putin's "incredible" offer.

On Thursday, as the president tried to move on to domestic economic issues, the Russian Federation question was still drawing headlines around the world. "The evidence is overwhelming and the President needs to say that and act like it".
