Chris Coons: It’s ‘Long Overdue’ that Trump Brought up Russian Meddling with Putin
COONS: "I think it's long overdue. The people need to hear directly from President Trump himself that he holds credible the allegations of our entire intelligence community, their conclusion that Russia really did interfere in our election. After their meeting, tillerson and lavrov, the respective secretary of state, both had communications. They said he brought it up. Whether it’s had any consequences, whether it’s had any impact, that’s something where we differ. I think rather than rushing to say what an honor it was to meet Putin, how delighted he was with the meeting, President Trump could have made it clear at the outset that he thinks Russian meddling in our 2016 election was a grave matter of national security and he intends to take strong action."
