Sinema Statement on Helsinki Press Conference

Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) released the following statement today in response to the joint press conference held by U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin:

"Russia is an authoritarian regime that has attacked our democracy and continues to undermine the security of the United States and our allies. I stand with our men and women in the US intelligence community, and am highly disturbed by President Trump’s statements supporting Putin’s baseless, false claims of innocence.

"Russia is continuing its dark attempts to undermine our democratic institutions and weaken our national security. We cannot allow this foreign threat to exert power over our country or over our democracy. We must stand together – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – against this aggression."
