"Leaking such information is a fireable offense and likely illegal", a senior White House official, who requested anonymity, said.

For critics, Trump's call offered Putin legitimacy while giving him a wedge to drive between Western allies and within the White House itself.

While Trump panders to Putin, his criticism of Mueller, is becoming harsher, as the investigation raises increasingly serious concerns about a web of ties connecting Trump's associates to Russian Federation.

"I called President Putin of Russian Federation to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also)", Trump tweeted.

Administration officials said it was unclear if the President had seen the briefing memo that was leaked to the Post. The leaders also discussed a potential face-to-face meeting in the future.

Mr Trump described the conversation with the Kremlin as a "very good call".

The president received backlash after he picked up the phone to congratulate Putin despite the fact that there is an ongoing investigation regarding the supposed collusion between Trump and the Russians.

"At the moment, we are not inclined actively to dissuade people from going because we want to hear from the Russians what steps they are going to take to look after our fans", he said.

She said Namibia believes that with the same government Russian Federation will continue to play a pivotal role on the worldwide front and at multilateral level as a member of the United Nations Security Council, where it has veto powers. John McCain, R-Ariz., who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee and has pressed the Trump administration to respond aggressively to Russia's interference in the US presidential election.

Chief of Staff John Kelly is furious that the Trump's congratulatory call was leaked, along with the content of the briefing instructing Trump not to congratulate Putin.

In a series of Twitter updated referencing his phone call with Putin, Donald Trump said that his initiative to be friendly with Putin was a "good thing" and that he refused to follow the expectations of new organisations to "excoriate" the Russian president.

If Trump isn't Putin's lackey, it's past time for him to prove it.

Trump's friendly attitude towards Putin has drawn harsh criticism from across the political spectrum, many believing the United States president is undermining global interests by being tolerant of Putin's dictatorship.

"If this story is accurate, that means someone leaked the President's briefing papers".

According to the Kremlin, Trump and Putin discussed the need to restrict the arms race between the two nations.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio called the leak a "bigger outrage" than Trump's congratulations for Putin.

According to the post, advisors also suggested the president condemn Russian Federation for that attack. Russian Federation has denied responsibility.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders acknowledged later Tuesday that Trump also did not mention the recent nerve agent attack against a former Russian spy and his daughter in the United Kingdom - for which the USA, the U.K., France and Germany have blamed Russia.
