Dan Coats' remarkable rebuke to President Trump

But Speaker Paul Ryan, leader of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, and other political colleagues of Trump continued to rebuke the stance he took alongside Putin at a closing news conference at Monday's summit in Helsinki.

"Let's be very clear, just so everybody knows: Russian Federation did meddle with our elections", said House Speaker Paul Ryan. "I think that the hatred for the president, on really somewhat on both sides of the aisle, has caused people to overreact to this whole thing", Paul added. A lot of people out there.

Trump has previously claimed that he believes the US intelligence agencies.

The officials said it became clear early Tuesday that initial discussions of clarifying his remarks on Twitter would not prove sufficient, as Trump was hearing from more and more people through phone calls and messages that he had to say something.

President Trump now says he misspoke when he addressed charges of Russian election meddling during his Helsinki summit with Putin.

Ryan went on to say he does understand the need to have good relations with Russian Federation.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, another Trump supporter, said, "I don't know what the president's mental calculation was in giving Putin a pass".

Trump's current DNI, Coats, countered Trump in a statement and said that Russian Federation was clearly involved in the interference in the last election.

"There was no collusion".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters that Russian Federation was not a friend of the United States and warned against a repeat of the 2016 election meddling. "There was nobody to collude with".

"There was no collusion at all".

The summit capped a tumultuous trip during which Trump accused North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies of failing to spend enough on their militaries and embarrassed British Prime Minister Theresa May by saying she had refused to take his advice about how to negotiate Britain's exit from the EU.

"I have not spoken to him", Ryan said.

Trump said at the joint press conference with Putin that he didn't "see any reason" why Russian Federation would be responsible for the hacking of the election.

Trump might be forced to say more to lawmakers when he meets later Tuesday with House Republicans at the White House.

This post has been updated with more details about Trump's previous comments about election interference and with responses from lawmakers.

Fellow GOP politicians have generally stuck with Trump during a year and a half of turmoil, but he was assailed as seldom before as he returned home Monday night from what he had hoped would be a proud summit with Putin.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said the US stands by its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, and all nations who are facing Russian aggression. But his performance during the Putin summit was dubbed by Republicans and Democrats alike as one of the biggest blunders of his presidency.

"He's got to speak out about it, and he's got to reverse course immediately", former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said during an appearance on CNN.

Trump said he and Putin discussed several Middle East subjects, "starting with the civil war in Syria and the need for humanitarian aid". "Isn't it natural to feel sympathy to a person who wanted to develop relations with our country?"
