The network is wondering why Melania Trump was "scared" by Vladimir Putin

Bill Browder, whose actions standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin led to the Magnitsky Act, was called out in Wednesday's White House press briefing over the possibility of President Trump allowing Russia to question US officials.

Trump stunned the world on Monday by shying away from criticizing the Russian leader for Moscow's actions to undermine the 2016 presidential election, sparking bipartisan fury at home and prompting calls by some US lawmakers for tougher sanctions and other actions to punish Russia.

Both current and former American diplomats are calling out President Donald Trump for even entertaining the idea that Russian Federation would be allowed to question USA ambassadors, reported the Daily Beast.

NBC's Hallie Jackson brought this up at the briefing, to which Sanders said something that women who have been attacked by Trump have likely been told: "no" doesn't mean no.

"The President and his administration are working very hard to make sure that Russian Federation is unable to meddle in our elections as they have done in the past and as we have stated", she continued.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed that no USA president has been as "tough" as him on Russian Federation.

Trump said at the news conference in Helsinki that he gave equal weight to Coats's assertions that Moscow interfered in the election and to Putin's denials.

On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that Russian Federation does not pose a threat to the USA, directly contradicting his director of national intelligence's statements.

TRUMP: "Yeah and I've said that before, Jeff". "We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match".

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki". I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russian Federation.

Democratic lawmakers have pushed for Congress to subpoena Donald Trump's interpreter, amid a growing sense of alarm over the private summit in Helsinki between the USA president and Russia's Vladimir Putin. "I don't see any reason why it would be".

"The president is going to meet with his team and we'll let you know when we have an announcement on that", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a news briefing.

The Irish gambling site has capitalized on the Trump presidency since he took office, by offering bets on scenarios like: When will Sean Spicer leave/get sacked as White House press secretary.

Even then, Trump made only a narrow retreat on Tuesday, saying he misspoke a single word in Helsinki. I'm just looking at my email right now, and so far, I've heard nothing from them - not one thing.
