Grassley: I’m Using Twitter to Get People Thinking About Certain Issues Like Putin Killing Opponents
GRASSLEY: "Well we have a president that is messaging by Twitter and communicating that way. It seems to me it’s legitimate for me to do it but I don’t do it just to have conversation with the president of the United States or the White House, I do it because Twitter is a way of getting people thinking about things and that was what I was thinking about Putin. He -- a couple of his opponents have been poisoned. One of them was just charged with a -- with a conviction that keeps him from running for office. And so, shouldn’t we in our conversations with Putin just kind of say what do you have against some opposition? What do you have against elections? You know, things like that. We ought to be promoting democracy, in other words."
