Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are forging ahead with plans to push back on the fallout from President Donald Trump's comments at a news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as lawmakers once again Wednesday are feeling the whiplash of the President's inconsistent comments on Russia.
In the same hour in which Coats declared Russian Federation to be the most aggressive state actor attempting to interfere in USA affairs, emphasizing the need to be "ever-vigilant" and "relentless", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that Mr. Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to the White House this fall.

While he praised Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, Putin slammed his decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.
"When I heard that he said no it really bothered me 'cause that's a disconnect between the intel", Graham said.
"They are feeding millions of their people stories", he said.
Coats said US intelligence on North Korea was significantly better than it used to be, but that the USA should not assume it will happen and that "trust and verify" should be America's mantra. Minutes after Sanders announced Trump's disapproval of Russia's request, the Senate adopted a non-binding resolution that would bar USA officials from being questioned by the Kremlin in a 98-0 vote.
