If you watched the total Trump/Putin love fest (joint- press conference) from Helsinki July 16, as I did, you should have no doubt as to who owns Donald Trump.
When Trump trashed his national intelligent agencies, the FBI and everyone else he could think of while standing next to a dictator that interfered in the 2016 election, Trump made it clear he believed Putin but not one word of criticism of Putin. Then his shameful excuse, more than 24 hours later, claiming he misspoke and changing one word. Changing one word in his overall comments does not change the fact that Trump sold out the United States in favor of Putin. Then (Charles) Grassley and other Republicans try to convince us we should accept Trump’s apology. It was not an apology, but rather a sorry attempt to appease his friends. Grassley does not know the difference between a bare-faced lie and the truth. It is past time for Republicans in Congress to begin standing up for the United States.
