"We need a new, harsh sanctions, which would be hanging over his head, and then meet with him", said the Senator. Trump has repeatedly derided Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt" and emphatically insisted there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russian Federation. Russian President Vladimir Putin said in Helsinki last week that he supported Trump in 2016 because of Trump's conciliatory outlook toward Russia.

They also added that "like Vladimir Putin, who has made clear his intention to challenge USA power", US needs to make clear that they will defend their nation and to prevent Russian Federation from "the hollowing of Western democracy".

"I'm very concerned that Russian Federation will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election", he wrote on Twitter.

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee and Senate Banking Chairman Mike Crapo of Idaho, both Republicans, said in a joint statement that they were "eager to continue the important work being done by our committees to push back on Russian Federation".

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 2:30 pm and will feature testimony from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on President Trump's recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "They definitely don't want Trump!" the president tweeted on Tuesday, before giving a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Kansas City, Missouri.

Mr Trump then told CBS he held Mr Putin personally responsible for Moscow's meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded after the 2016 election that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign and help Trump win. I have tremendous faith in Dan Coats. The White House repeatedly fired back at critics by saying it was a good idea for the leaders of the two countries to continue to keep talking.

The legislation, deep inside a massive bill authorizing US military programs, still has to be approved by the full House and Senate.

Pushing the meeting until next year would help avoid an uproar that could damage Republican candidates in the November elections.

A bipartisan group of senators, led by Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen, is pushing "DETER Act" legislation putting Putin on notice that his country would be slammed with a torrent of US sanctions if Russian Federation interfered in any future American election.

The goals, according to this view, might be more political ugliness, a reduced likelihood of successful legislation - because Trump would be unlikely to sign bills passed by Democrats - or other work by new Democratic majorities to try to hurt Trump politically.

Corker and Sen Crapo, who is the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said. Trump has since clarified his remarks to side with the intelligence community.

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.

Trump has invited Putin to the White House this fall as a follow-up to their private meeting in Helsinki last week.
