White House issues talking points to curtail damage from Russian Federation summit

Back at the White House on Tuesday, the president told reporters that he said he meant he doesn't see why Russian Federation "wouldn't" be responsible. Tuesday, the day after, Trump said he meant to say the word "wouldn't".

Trump has incomparably more influence with the base than the Republican Party's leaders in Congress: outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"Those who opposed the meeting will try to devalue the agreements made", said Vladimir Olenchenko, of Russia's Institute of Global Economics and International Relations.

In the Finnish capital, Trump had refused to say he believed U.S. intelligence agencies over Russia's denials of meddling and delivered no condemnation of Moscow's interference.

Some US lawmakers have suggested passing resolutions to voice support for intelligence agencies or to invest more in election security and preventing cyber attacks.

Later on Tuesday, Trump again contended that his Helsinki summit was a "great success" and blamed what he called "the Fake News Media" for contrary views.

Trump said Tuesday he misspoke a day earlier when he seemed to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the conclusion by the U.S. intelligence committees that Russia had meddled in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Still, Canadian officials were hard at work trying to get a better sense of what was said during the two-hour, closed-door meeting between Putin and Trump - and what ramifications, if any, the discussion would have for Canada.

Members of Congress, including several powerful Republicans, distanced themselves from Trump's remarks and aligned themselves with U.S. intelligence estimates that Russian Federation had interfered in the election. "The worry is that an emboldened Russian Federation will do things that will increase the risk and security uncertainty".

Even without a firm handle on what passed between Putin and Trump, experts say the meeting again saw the US president throw long-standing norms, conventions and principles out the window - many of which have formed the basis of Canada's approach to the world.

His response echoed Mr Trump's stance on the Mueller probe, which is digging into possible collusion between Mr Trump's campaign and Moscow.

House Speaker Paul Ryan - a Republian - insisted Tuesday that Russian Federation had hacked the election Trump won, although added that they did not influence the final result.

"I wasn't doing a protest", Husseini said in an AP interview.

"I think that Russian Federation is his friend and [he] only cares about collusion because he's so uncertain about his own victory", she added.

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Hurd, who is a former CIA officer and member of the House Intelligence Committee, if he trusted Trump's ability to speak on behalf of USA interests.

"We stand by our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and all those countries who are facing Russian aggression", Ryan said.

What did he say at the summit with Putin?

On Monday the United States and Russian presidents held almost two hours of one-on-one talks without their advisers in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

The upcoming hearing is also the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's first on Russian Federation this year, despite what Democratic congressional aides describe as a behind-the-scenes push by lawmakers on the left to get an open hearing on Russian Federation for months.
