"But I go in with low expectations, I'm not going in with high expectations", Trump said.

The U.S. now has no open treaty with Moscow and can not force Russian to extradite citizens, as a provision in the Russian constitution prohibits this.

The letter was signed by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who was among those who on Friday called on Trump to cancel the summit, and the top Democrats on the Senate Intelligence, Armed Services, Foreign Relations and other national security-related committees, CNN reported.

Trump is slated to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. An excerpt of the interview will air on Sunday while the rest will be broadcast on Monday.

Trump's willingness to accept Putin's denials puts him at odds, not only with his US intelligence agencies and lawmakers from both parties, but also his own national security adviser, John Bolton, who said Sunday that after seeing the indictments, he found it "hard to believe" that Putin was unaware of election interference.

Assessing the Putin meeting, President Trump said: "Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out". "I think it's ridiculous". "So this is an attempt to see if we can defuse and take some of the drama and quite frankly some of the danger out of the relationship right now".

"Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems know how to do is resist and obstruct!"

He's scheduled to meet with Putin next week, but the summit is being overshadowed by the explosive new charges of Russian meddling.

"I respect the leaders of those countries", Trump said.

This followed a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit last week where Trump called on America's European allies to increase their defence spending and reportedly threatened to "do our own thing" if his demands were not met. "We have to assume - and if we have proof that they did it, which it sounds like we [do] - we should now spend our time protecting ourselves instead of having this witch hunt on the president", Paul continued. "We have asked, and the Russians have agreed, that it will be basically unstructured".

As he has done before, Trump attacked the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian election interference.

Clinton tweeted Sunday night, ahead of the President's first official summit with Putin, taking place in Helsinki, Finland. Paul then attacked Blitzer's interviewing skills.
