"I think President Putin knows that better than anyone, certainly a lot better than the media".
"The fundamental question we must ask ourselves is do we wish to strengthen our partners in key regions or leave them with no other option than to turn to Russian Federation, thereby undermining a once-in-a-generation opportunity to more closely align nations with the USA vision for global security and stability", Mattis said.
During his public appearances with Putin in Helsinki, Trump suggested he believed the Russian president's denial that his intelligence officers interfered with the USA election.

Most recently, Trump said on Tuesday that not only does he accept that foreign interference is taking place, he fears that this year, Russian Federation will direct its energies in support of Democrats who want to claim majorities in the House and Senate. "Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russian Federation than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats", Trump tweeted Tuesday.

While a clear legislative path is far from certain, and several GOP aides noted potential White House opposition to any new efforts, the push, along with a separate new Russian Federation sanctions package being put together by Sens.
At the same time, according to the Agency "Bloomberg", in the USA house of representatives, unlike the Senate, believe that the issue of new sanctions against Russian Federation should be treated carefully to avoid unexpected negative consequences for America.
Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's summit performance.
Trump later attempted to clarify his remarks by saying he misspoke a single word.
Last Thursday, Rubio and Van Hollen, noting the "urgency of the challenge before our nation", wrote to the chairmen of the Senate Banking and Foreign Relations committees pressing them to hold hearings on the legislation before the start of an early August recess.
"We need a vigorous response" that can be put in place quickly, Collins said.
But he has also seemed to suggest that there is not much he can do to push back against the Russian leader's denials. The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can not compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens.
