Coons: I Wish Trump Was as Forceful About Supporting the Intel Community When He Was Standing Next to Putin

‘If he believes our intelligence community, he should believe the counter intelligence investigation that produced those 12 indictments and stop calling the Mueller indictment a witch hunt’

RUSH EXCERPT:

COONS: "Well, first, I wish he was as clear and forceful about support of the intelligence community when he was standing next to adversary Vladimir Putin as he tried to be today. If President Trump is now going to say that he believes our intelligence community rather than Vladimir Putin he needs to start acting like it. Wolf, one of the most striking things to me is that our president knew for days that there were impending indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for interfering in the election yet he persisted repeatedly last week in continuing to call the Mueller investigation a rigged witch hunt. If he believes our intelligence community, he should believe the counter intelligence investigation that produced those 12 indictments and stop calling the Mueller indictment a witch hunt."
