House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said the evidence of Russian meddling in the 2016 election is clear and that President Trump "needs to say that and act like it".
On Thursday, the White House announced the two leaders would meet again in the fall in Washington, around the time of the congressional midterm elections the United States intelligence community says Russian Federation is trying to meddle in.
"There are serious matters and I think there's no ignoring the fact that for whatever reason, this president acts like he's compromised", Schiff added.
The former intelligence chief asserted that Mr Trump's statement was "nothing short of treasonous" and that he was "wholly in the pocket of Putin".
"The only plot here is the plot to interfere in our elections by the Russians", he said.

"I don't think it was a good moment for this administration, and I disagreed with it", Rubio said.
In an interview on Fox News, guest host Bret Baier asked Gowdy why Trump continues to suggest that Russian Federation may not have been responsible for the 2016 election attack, even as the president claims that he accepts the intelligence community's assessment about the Kremlin's role.
"It ought to be a source of unity and rallying around the fact that we are never going to allow this to happen again and we're going to punish those who try to do it", Gowdy said. Whether on goal or by pure coincidence, it was around this time that press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that the president was starting to plan a second meeting with Putin, this time at the White House in the fall.
Trump met with Putin privately for more than two hours in Helsinki Monday, with only their interpreters present.
In addition to his pointed remarks about Russia, Rubio also anticipated that there could be further sanctions from the USA on Nicaragua, given recent violence in the Latin American nation. I have President Putin. But President Putin's comments made it clear not only that Russian Federation had a specific agenda, but that he considered certain points on it to have been agreed with Trump. Putin also defended their summit, saying that the two leaders were working to improve political relations between the two countries, reported the Independent.
