IN Focus: Indiana politicians come to Coats' defense after Russian Federation summit

During the interview, NBC's Andrea Mitchell told Coats on stage that the White House had just announced "Putin is coming to the White House in the fall".

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was responding to Trump's apparent acceptance during a news conference last week of Putin's denial that Russian Federation attempted influence the 2016 election.

For a full week now, Donald Trump has faced protests as crowds gather outside the White House to respond to his behavior when he met with Russia's Vladimir Putin.

And later at a joint news conference with the Kremlin strongman, Trump sided with Putin over the USA intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election.

USA special counsel Robert Mueller is probing whether Trump or anyone from his campaign coordinated with Russian Federation in its attempt to tilt the 2016 election toward the Republican.

After returning to the USA, the president claimed he misspoke in Helsinki and said he believed the U.S. intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the election, though he added it could be "other people also".

"I thought it was a very disturbing performance with Vladimir Putin", Toomey said on a telephone town-hall he held with Pennsylvania residents Wednesday.

Confusion followed after his return to the USA, where he has since said that he misspoke at a joint news conference in Helsinki with Mr Putin and does hold the Russian leader personally responsible.

Speaking during MSNBC panel Sunday night, Kevin McLaughlin of Cogent Strategies Principle explained that one reason his poll numbers didn't sag is that Russian Federation doesn't seem to matter much in Trump World. "I don't understand the apparent blindness (Trump) has to Putin's hostile acts".

The president's handling of the Putin meeting had some in the media describing last week as the worst week of his presidency, and former CIA Director John Brennan went as far to describe Trump's behavior as "treasonous".

Russia's ambassador to the United States told the media in Moscow on Wednesday that Trump and Putin had reached several "verbal agreements" on weapons treaties and Syria, but US officials are still scrambling to determine what those agreements might have been. On both questions, those who say they "strongly disapprove" of Trump's performance outnumber those who say they "strongly approve, " by better than 2 to 1.

A small portion of Trump's support continues to come from Democrats, with nine percent approving of him.
