Today, President Trump held a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland where he failed to challenge Russia on their interference in the 2016 election. Instead, Trump attacked the Democrats, panned the Russia probe as a witch hunt, and called the U.S. “foolish.”

As members of the media and Democrats condemned the press conference, most Republicans remained silent in the immediate aftermath. Some responded.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

Senator Jeff Flake – (R-AZ)

Speaker of the  House Paul Ryan (R – WI)
