Moulton Calls on Congress to Put Country Before Politics, Investigate Trump White House Ties to Russia
February 15th, 2017
Moulton: “Americans do not have clarity about who this administration works for.”
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement in response to reports on the Trump administration’s ties to Russia and dictator, Vladimir Putin. Moulton says that Americans do not have clarity about who this administration works for, and calls on his colleagues from both sides of the aisle to put country before politics.
“Despite what the Trump White House puts forth to distract us, we cannot lose sight of the broader context of the Trump administration’s ties to our enemy Russia and its brutal dictator, Vladimir Putin. We know that Russia wanted Donald Trump to be elected president. And that is either because Russia believes Trump is Putin’s buddy, or it’s because Russia has material they can use against our Commander in Chief.
“Americans should never have to question whether our president will be loyal to the Constitution and to our country. But given President Trump’s repeated praise for Putin and the fact that the White House knew about Flynn’s actions for weeks and chose to do nothing, Americans do not have clarity about who this administration works for.
“I’m calling on my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to put our country before politics and support a comprehensive investigation into the ties between the Trump White House and Putin’s Russia,” said Moulton.
