Heller Silent While Trump Sides With Putin Over American Intelligence Agencies

Earlier today, President Trump stood next to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and defended the Kremlin against the fact—confirmed by American intelligence agencies—that Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election in 2016. Will Sen. Dean Heller continue to stay silent and spineless in the face of Trump’s disgraceful behavior this morning?

So far, the answer is yes. Meanwhile, other Republicans are speaking out and slamming President Trump’s embarrassing performance.

 

Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:

“The integrity of our democracy is at stake after Russia meddled in the 2016 election, but Sen. Heller can’t seem to find his spine after President Trump’s disastrous summit with Vladimir Putin. Sen. Heller’s craven silence and refusal to criticize President Trump’s humiliating performance makes clear to Nevadans that he cannot be trusted to be anything but a loyal rubber stamp for the White House.”
