A United States grand jury charged 12 Russian "intelligence officers" with breaching the Democratic party's computer networks in an election hacking case, Reuters reported.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said Trump should demand the extradition of the Russians indicted on Friday, but he predicted that would not happen.

Trump's repeated attacks on the news media while overseas - he also lashed out at NBC News and The Sun newspaper during Friday's news conference - has alarmed free speech advocates, especially as Trump is set to hold a joint press availability Monday with Putin, whose country is known for being deeply hostile to a free press.

Schumer is also suggesting that Trump reconsider his meeting with Putin until the Russians are able to prove there will be no further interference with US elections.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday at the Department of Justice that he briefed Trump on the coming indictments earlier this week.

Speaking in Britain before the indictments were unveiled, Trump said he would ask Putin about the allegations of election meddling. But he predicted Putin wouldn't confess. He called on the special counsel to "end this pursuit of the president and say President Trump is completely innocent". I got 306! They were sooooo wrong in their election coverage.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation may now need its friends in the U.S. Congress and in the Republican and Democratic parties to speak out more to prevent permanent damage to alliance's image in the United States, they said.

"I'm here as a quiet protester to say: I really don't want this man in our country", said Graham Creelman, 70, who joined a small protest on the beach.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the attack and rejected accusations that it interfered in the USA presidential election in a bid to help Trump win.

As the French President Emmanuel Macron, who maintains one of the most genial personal relationships with Trump of any world leader, made clear soon after Trump's news conference, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies did nothing more than recommit themselves to the previously agreed 2% of GDP defense spending by 2024.

Whatever US President Donald Trump had hoped to get out of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Robert Mueller changed the game.

After the indictments were announced, Democrats were quick to urge Trump to cancel the meeting.

Allies emerged confused and shaken from a two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in which Trump harangued them over perceived under- spending on defense, accused Germany of being a prisoner to Russian energy and prompted an emergency meeting of leaders trying to contain the fallout from the unexpected tirade at one session. "If the president leaves the Putin meeting without ironclad assurances and concrete steps toward a full cessation of Russian attacks on our democracy, this meeting will not only be a failure - it will be a grave step backward for the future of the worldwide order and global security".

'I will absolutely bring that up.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will also hold their first meeting in Helsinki during the summit. Warner also called on the president and his allies to "immediately cease and desist from calling the Mueller investigation a witch hunt".
