After the disastrous conference, most news organizations agreed that Trump's disgraceful behavior threw America under the bus. A news organization asked Putin if he had damaging information on Trump; Putin did not deny the claim only to say he didn't know Trump in 2013 when the alleged salacious acts happened in a hotel.
Donald Trump has officially sold out America. No longer is there a doubt, Donald Trump has committed treason.
As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I am deeply troubled by President Trump’s defense of Putin against the intelligence agencies of the U.S. & his suggestion of moral equivalence between the U.S. and Russia. Russia poses a grave threat to our national security.— Liz Cheney (@Liz_Cheney) July 16, 2018
This is a betrayal to the oath of office. Donald Trump is clearly under the control of Moscow. To him Putin & the oligarchy are his political base & he will always side with them. No doubt this is why #TreasonSummit is trending #1 today #SaveDemocracy https://t.co/djHKfV4UJS— Malcolm Nance (@MalcolmNance) July 16, 2018
Trump: "My people came to me, [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me, some others, they said they think it's Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be." pic.twitter.com/p6kfkGw5pC— MSNBC (@MSNBC) July 16, 2018
