About The Event
While standing alongside Putin in Helsinki, Trump characterized Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation as a "ridiculous . . . witch hunt" and said he did not see "any reason" why Russia would be behind the election meddling and hacking. The president later attempted to walk back his statement, claiming he'd been trying to use a double negative and had misspoke. Trump claimed he'd meant to say, "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia." As the week went on, the president continued to make a series of confusing and conflicting remarks about Russia's election interference. On Tuesday he said he accepted U.S. intelligence agencies' findings regarding Russian meddling but added the hacking "could be other people also."
Democrats and like minded thinkers see the president's behavior as "what can only be called treason against the United States and it's peoples." Protesters in Lafayette Square (across the street from the White House) are letting Trump and his administration know they will be held accountable. Show your support for this message
