Washington, DC – Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement upon the conclusion of President Trump’s joint press conference with Russian President Putin:

“Today’s display in Helsinki was nothing less than a complete capitulation to a dictator who directed a cyber war on the United States’ sovereignty and self-determination. Any president fit to serve would have honored his oath of office to protect the homeland by confronting Putin for his crimes and identifying his continued attacks on global democracy. Instead, President Trump yielded to Putin’s will, refusing to hold him accountable for interfering in the 2016 election only days after Special Counsel Mueller indicted 12 Russian operatives for election interference. On a global stage, President Trump betrayed his presidential duty and subverted American leadership. The repercussions of his antics are sure to be felt for years to come.”
