GOP Rep. Mike Turner: Trump’s Helsinki Press Conference Is ‘Deeply Damaging

‘It’s certainly deeply damaging’


TURNER: "It’s certainly deeply damaging. I serve on the Arms Services Committee and the Intelligence Committee and I’m the liaison to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly and have served as president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. So let’s talk about how damaging it is because I don’t think the President understands that. We could lose it in the dialogue here. How can we ask Poland, Romania, Hungary to stand up to Russia meddling in their own countries if the president of the United States, leader of the free world, can’t do it. How do we say to the Baltics, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, who have meddling and hacking that's going on from the Russians that we don’t believe the Russians are doing it?"
