Rep. Marino Statement on U.S.-Russia Summit
Washington, DC- Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) released the following statement after the joint press conference following the U.S.-Russia Summit.
“America’s relationship with Russia is not binary and many of the issues discussed from energy, cybersecurity, and denuclearization need mutual dedication to reach solutions. However, Russia is not our ally and their motivations are not based on the promotion of democracy and human rights like the United States. Russia and President Putin cannot be trusted.
“As a former prosecutor and Department of Justice employee, my experiences tell me the recent indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers came with merit and have facts to back them up. U.S. intelligence agencies have bountiful evidence to confirm Russian activity in our democratic processes.”
