"Not doing so creates moral equivalency between a legitimate US indictment of Russian intelligence officers and a insane, completely fabricated story invented by Putin", he said. But in return, Putin said he would expect the United States to allow Russian investigators to question what he called fugitives on American soil.
"He (Trump) has got his view, he's expressed his view, and I'll tell you what my view is".
"Republicans and Democrats will unite in Congress, as they should, to limit his diplomatic running room", it said.
Even many Republicans are lashing out at Trump after his freakish performance at his meeting with Vladimir Putin.
Trump took to Twitter early Wednesday to defend the meeting, promising "big results" from better relations with Russian Federation and hitting back at "haters".
Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-South Carolina, said on Twitter that there is a "BIG discrepancy" between Trump's statement and warning by Coats.
Did Trump misspeak when he gave Putin's self-serving denials of election interference the same standing he gave findings of our intelligence agencies that have the backing of congressional intelligence committees controlled by Republicans? No.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that Trump actually was saying "no" to answering additional questions - even though he subsequently went on to address Russian Federation.
Among several Americans who the Russian Prosecutor's Office has said it wants to interrogate in connection with its case against Browder is the former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, who on July 17 called on the State Department to "push back" against the Russian interrogation requests.

"They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War Three". They would rather go to war than see this.
Co-host Olga Skabeeva added: "When Trump says our relations are bad because of American foolishness and stupidity, he really smells like an agent of the Kremlin". "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!"
Trump's statement received immediate backlash because it directly contradicted comments made by his director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, who said, "We have been clear in our assessment of Russian meddling in our 2016 elections and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy". He said he misspoke by one word when he said he saw no reason to believe Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 US election.
In Tuesday's remarks at the White House, Trump said he had misspoken when he appeared to accept Putin's denials in Helsinki that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 election.
"Also, the rest of us less intelligent people in America thought your performance in Helsinki was disgraceful", Lieu said.
He, however, backtracked a day later on his return to the United States and said that he misspoke in the joint news conference.
"I think there's a growing wave of alarm" in both parties, Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal told AFP.
McCain was actually an early Trump regretter, endorsing Trump for president in 2016, but later pulling his endorsement after a tape surfaced in October of that year on which Trump was heard making crass and sexist remarks about women, and boasting about kissing and sexually grabbing them against their will, The Guardian reported.
"The president also sees this as an opportunity, as he said many times, to be able to work with Russian Federation".
