Tennessee senators disagree with Trump
U.S. Sens. Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, both Tennessee Republicans on Monday criticized President Donald Trump after the president accepted Russian President Vladimir Putin's statements that he didn't meddle in the 2016 U.S. election despite assertions by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia had. Saying he was "disappointed and saddened" that Trump would equate statements of the intelligence community with Putin, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Corker said "I just felt like the president's comments made us look as a nation more like a pushover, and I was disappointed in that.I did not think this was a good moment for our country." Alexander said "there is no doubt that Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election. On July 3, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence released a bipartisan report that agreed with the conclusions of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in our presidential election." And just last week, the Trump administration's own Justice Department indicted 12 Russian military intelligence agents "for interfering in the election. "This makes it even more important that the bipartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence investigation and the Mueller investigation continue until they are complete," Alexander said. "Congress can then decide what to do about both."
