Schumer Calls On President Trump To Cancel Putin Meeting In Wake Of Hacking Indictments

July 13, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s announcement today of new charges against twelve Russian intelligence officers:

“These indictments are further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win.

“President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russia takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won’t interfere in future elections. Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy.”
