Your view: Call on Trump to hold Russians accountable


During the recent summit between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin, Trump demonstrated by word and deed what many of us have long feared: He simply does not care that a foreign power attacked our country and its elections.

Despite America’s own intelligence departments confirming Russia’s interference, Trump continues to double down on his attacks on what he considers to be a “phony investigation.” But after last week’s indictments of 12 Russian officials, it is clear that Russia has and intends to continue undermining our democratic institutions.

The United States cannot tolerate such interference.

All Americans need to fight for the rule of law and persistently call on Trump to hold Russia accountable for their heinous actions.
