WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democracy Reform Task Force Chair Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today after President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“Today, the President of the United States once again belittled the findings of our nation’s intelligence community, ignored the ongoing threat posed to our democracy, and cozied up to one of our country’s chief adversaries – Russia.  He is failing every test of Presidential leadership and abdicating his responsibilities as Commander in Chief.”
