Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement following President Trump’s appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland:

“President Trump’s remarks in Helsinki regarding the 2016 election were against the interests of the United States and therefore dangerous. Instead of defending our nation, our intelligence community, and our democracy our Commander-in-Chief sided with the leader of the nation who attacked America’s electoral process. Instead of standing firm, he drew a false moral equivalence between the United States and Russia. While our countries should cooperate on areas of shared interest, we absolutely cannot tolerate their interference in our elections. Not for a minute. Today’s events also draw a sharp line under the continued partisan attacks on the FBI, the Department of Justice and the Special Counsel by many in the House Republican Caucus, highlighting just how unwarranted these efforts have been.”
