Trump said that referred to in the indictment of 12 Russians have “no relation to the election” and “these people are not connected with the election campaign”. He also welcomed Putin’s proposal to send investigators in Russia.
“For the President (USA) to side with Putin against his own (American) scouts — it’s an absolute disgrace,” wrote Twitter Senator mark Warner.
It’s crazy that the President of the United States attacks the FBI and believes Putin, and not his own intelligence and evidence, as presented by the house and the Senate. Amazing! Chris van HOLLEN.Senator
