President Trump called the ongoing probe into the interference a “disaster for our country.” He added, after his summit with Vladimir Putin, that the autocrat gave him a “very powerful” denial. “I don’t see any reason why” Russia would have interfered, he said.
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said “the president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally.” Ailing Sen. John McCain delivered the strongest broadside, describing the president’s news conference with Putin as “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.”
