If Coats had been in Washington instead of the conference, he would have been informed about the plan, one source familiar with the inner workings of the White House said on condition of anonymity.

"I don't know what happened in that meeting", he said.

What reaction is there to the planned Putin visit?

The issue, titled "The Summit Crisis", comes in the wake of the two leaders' controversial meeting in Helsinki, Finland on Monday.

Trump listed on Twitter the topics he and Putin talked about, but has not given details.

The controversy escalated on Wednesday, when Sanders told reporters Trump was entertaining a proposal from Putin that would allow special counsel Robert Mueller's team to interrogate the 12 Russian military intelligence officials it indicted last week if, in exchange, the USA allowed the Russian government to interrogate certain Americans, including the former United States ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul.

It was the latest about-face from the White House as it struggled to quiet the post-Helsinki summit uproar.

Clinton continued. "Could it be because of all the nice things Donald has said about him or the fact that he has promised to adopt pro-Kremlin policies, or maybe because of the extensive business dealings with Russian oligarchs". On Wednesday, Trump answered "no" to a reporter's question on whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, only to have Sanders say later he was saying "no" to answering any questions - not to the question itself. Trump said he could think of no reason why Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election and called the special counsel investigation a "disaster". He mentioned London-based financier Bill Browder, a onetime investor in Russian Federation who said he exposed corruption there.

Putin may have covertly interfered in the 2016 elections to help Trump, but Moscow may calculate overt interference, through a highly charged visit in this autumn, is hardly likely to help Republican keep control of the Senate.

The claims, from Anatoly Antonov, Russia's ambassador to the U.S., were swiftly denounced by Kiev, which said it would...

Five days after the two-hour Helsinki meeting, attended only by the two leaders and their interpreters, some USA officials remained in the dark about what was discussed.

Putin told a closed-door gathering of Russian ambassadors this week that he had proposed the eastern Ukrainian referendum, which would be held under global auspices, to Trump at their summit in Helsinki on Monday, Bloomberg reported, citing two anonymous sources who attended the meeting.
