The Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder said he hasn't heard from anyone in the Trump administration and called the idea of handing over senior USA officials to the Russians "just beyond belief".
In an interview Wednesday, Trump told CBS News that he told Putin that Russian Federation must not meddle in future USA elections.
McFaul, ambassador to Russian Federation under Democratic former President Barack Obama and a critic of both Trump and Putin, expressed deep concern that the White House failed to defend him.
"Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction", he said.
On Monday, Trump appeared to accept Putin's denial of Russian interference in the U.S. 2016 presidential election at their joint press conference in Helsinki, sparking uproar in Washington. "He needs to be contained, not engaged", Browder said.
Trump's remarks on Wednesday are not the first time he's brushed against USA intelligence assessments of the 2016 election meddling.
Putin made what Trump called an "incredible offer" during a joint press conference concluding their summit in Helsinki, for which Trump received bipartisan condemnation at home.
Yet he added that these forces are "on the contrary rather powerful and strong if they are able to sell - forgive me my bad manners - to their citizens, millions of their citizens, various illogical things that are hard to digest".
Confusion over Mr Trump's position took another turn when he appeared to reject suggestions that Russian Federation might try again to influence American elections, prompting a hasty denial by the White House.

In Moscow on Thursday, Mr Putin said Russian Federation was still open to building a good relationship with the US.
That's a change from Trump's initial upbeat description of his meeting with Russia's president.
"That was a big factor", Trump said. Trump said that, in fact, he did accept the agencies' conclusions.
Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder speaks on tense relations with Russian Federation and crony capitalism.
"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or 'why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", he told reporters at the White House. Putin said USA intelligence officers helped Browder.
Russian politicians are rallying behind Mr Putin and shrugging off Mr Trump's wildly contradictory accounts of what he said to Mr Putin at Monday's summit.
Amid bipartisan condemnation of Trump's embrace of a longtime USA enemy in Helsinki, the US president delivered a rare admission of error Tuesday. "Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".
The Russian leader praised Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, but slammed his protectionist trade policies and the decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.
"The president has made clear to Vladimir Putin that he should stay out of U.S. elections", Sanders said.
The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers.
