Nolan Statement on Trump-Putin Summit

Jul 17, 2018
Press Release

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] U.S. Congressman Rick Nolan released the following statement today on the President’s joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“It is outrageous and unprecedented that the President would publicly dismiss the Russian assault on our democracy less than 72 hours after the Justice Department indicted 12 additional Russian officials. The President had the chance to put America first and failed miserably. Here’s the simple truth: Russia’s purpose is to undermine our system of government and the confidence of the American people in our elections and public policymaking process. We cannot allow this.”
