"Russia is a menacing government that does not share our interests and it does not share our values", he said.

Donald Trump has distanced himself from his comments that saw him siding with Russian Federation over his own intelligence agencies after a furious backlash. But, as the world's only superpower, we should unequivocally denounce Russia's election interference activities and human rights offenses around the world.

Murkowski noted that "we were not privileged" to know what was said in the private meeting between Trump and Putin. Putin stressed that he did not agree with Trump during on all issues the talks and added that they also discussed Syria.

After all, Trump's willingness to cozy up to Putin is pretty alarming.

Russian President Vladimir Putin answer questions during a joint press conference with U.S. President Donald Trump after their summit on July 16, 2018 in Helsinki, Finland.

"In addition to his comments at the press conference, Putin again denied any Russian interference in the USA election in an interview with Fox News" Chris Wallace.

Republican politicians in the United States have joined the Democrats and intelligence officials in denouncing President Donald Trump's failure to challenge Russian President Vladimir Putin over interference in the U.S. elections, calling his response as "shameful" and "disgraceful". "He just said it's not Russian Federation. Instead, Trump - standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin - touted Putin's vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee's server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton's personal account".

Mr Trump also blamed poor relations with Russia on past USA administrations rather than Russian actions.

"Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

Warner characterized Trump's refusal to criticize Putin as throwing the entire US intelligence community "under the bus".

He also said he "doesn't see any reason why" Russian Federation would be responsible for hacking the DNC and interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

McConnell said he was speaking from the Senate because he thinks "it's important for friends and allies to hear from us". "I think this would've been an opportunity to do so".

"There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy", Ryan said in a statement.

Astonished Republicans and Democrats uniformly condemned Trump, with harsh criticism coming even from hosts on Fox News - a network normally friendly to the president. That said, while McCain's biting words hit home, for the most part he always sides with Trump.
