President Trump, Russia, Caitlin Caitlin Huey discussed on This Morning with Gordon Deal

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Which the president talked about both sides of the issue when most Americans have made or believe that there aren't, two sides to the issue as pretended Charlottesville and also as pertain to whether you should believe the US intelligence community or that. Of a of MIR Putin's Russia and so that the parallels are certainly clear in terms, of the actual substance of the comments. And the actual responses from lawmakers but I will say today that you know there are. Republican lawmakers on the house side. At least coming to the president's defense and there's also the, question of what Republicans could actually do more than raise their concerns they have said called Ryan house speaker said they will continue to push for sanctions on Russia They have issued sanctions on Russia but beyond that it's not. Quite clear. What. Republicans. Can actually do, to sway this. President. Or, to do more to, stand up to him and speaking of Paul Ryan as you mentioned even saw him sort of downplay the effect that Russia's meddling hat on the two thousand sixteen election just a day after speaking out loudly against Russia and contradicting Trump's assertion about the meddling Republicans are concerned that the president is is so focused. On himself and the way in which admitting Russian meddling but somehow also undermine legitimacy of his election now the intelligence community has. Said that it's there's no way, of knowing, really the impact that the Russian meddling had, in terms of electing Trump and Republicans. Are trying to get the president to kind of see beyond himself and I think that's. What you're seeing in the speaker. Comments all, right thanks Caitlin Caitlin Huey burns national political reporter At real clear politics fourteen. Minutes now. After. The. Hour Imus Morning America's First news.
