DNC Slams Trump over Putin
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is reminding Americans that President Donald Trump is still unwilling to admit that Russia is a threat to our democracy.
Following the testimony by FBI Director James Comey in front of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the Democrats slammed Trump for giving “cover to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin by questioning the conclusion of 17 intelligence agencies and failing to deliver the cyber security report he promised.”
In her statement following Comey’s testimony, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson said that while the FBI director seems to believe that the greatest threat of any nation on earth to our democratic process is Russia, President Trump continues to cover for the Russian leader.
“While Director Comey believes Russia is ‘the greatest threat of any nation on earth’ to our democratic process and predicted future Kremlin-sponsored attacks on our elections, Trump continues to give cover to Putin by questioning the conclusion of 17 intelligence agencies and failing to deliver the cyber security report he promised.
“Comey’s comments are a chilling reminder that President Trump has been willing to ignore a grave threat to our national security because it works well for him personally,” Watson added.
In his testimony, Comey said the FBI believes Russia is a threat to the democratic freedom enjoyed by the United States.
He said the FBI is taking all threats seriously and working hard to understand the Russians’ next move as we move closer to the 2018 midterm elections, but especially towards 2020 presidential elections.
