Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told reporters Friday that Trump shouldn't meet alone with Putin, adding that he's "afraid the president could be take advantage of" due to his lack of preparation.
"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said in a statement.
MacCallum brought up the indictments of the 12 Russian intel officers on hacking charges, and Graham restated, "I want President Trump to go to meet Putin, I want a better relationship, but when Putin says 'I didn't do it, ' I want President Trump to say, 'I reject that denial". "And, today, Special Counsel Mueller indicted twelve Russian military officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee - a direct attack on our democracy".
Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation. And on Friday, he voiced skepticism that the meeting with Putin would result in a confession about election meddling.
The indictments come just days before the president is scheduled to hold a summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. "T$3 hese Russian conspirators attacked our democracy and were communicating with Americans to interfere in our election".
"The indictments Rod Rosenstein announced are good news for all Americans".

The indictment also does not allege that any vote tallies were altered by hacking.
Still, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the internet "allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways". That includes four former Trump campaign and White House aides, three of whom have pleaded guilty to different crimes and agreed to cooperate, as well as 13 Russians accused of participating in a hidden but powerful social media campaign to sway American public opinion in the 2016 election.
"President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world", said McCain, an Arizona Repulican, in a statement.
Jack Reed said Trump should cancel the meeting outright.
"Cancel your ridiculous Putin summit and get your butt back on a plane to the United States", tweeted Sen. "Pure stupidity", he said, referring to Mueller's probe. "But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation. Anything you do, it's always going to be, 'Oh, Russia, he loves Russia'". "But I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".
It came hours after another bomb killed at least four people at a campaign rally in Bannu in the country's northwest. The military denied the accusations, and said its assistance had been requested by Pakistan's election commission.
Trump later tweeted and also confirmed during a press conference in Brussels that 4% percent should indeed be the ultimate target. Trump did not specify which countries had committed to what, and it remained unclear whether any had changed their plans.

There was the deluge of aces (more than 100, in fact), the three tiebreakers, the final set that itself lasted almost three hours. ESPN commented the match lasted longer than the original Star Wars trilogy at a combined total of 6 hours, 19 minutes.
The ambiguity involved in the conflicting New Mexico and MA rulings may mean the suspension of payments will indeed be temporary. Compare that to agents and brokers who enrolled 42 percent of customers at a cost of just $2.42 per enrollee.
Russian Federation said it would respond to the Greek expulsions by taking similar steps against Greek diplomats in Moscow. Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has staked his political future on the deal, threatening to resign if people vote against it.
