Statement from U.S. Rep. John Katko Regarding President Trump’s Summit with Vladimir Putin

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the following statement:

“I want to be completely clear: I trust the unanimous conclusion of our nation’s intelligence agencies that Russia conducted an aggressive hacking and disinformation campaign in the United States.  The President should clearly and firmly stand behind our intelligence agencies, and he should have used this summit as an opportunity to confront President Putin over Russia’s aggressive actions in the U.S. and around the world.  There is no excuse for his failure to do so.”
