Trump faces bipartisan rebuke over 'treasonous' summit with Putin

interference in the US elections
Republican politicians in the US have joined the Democrats and intelligence officials in denouncing President Donald Trump's failure to challenge Russian President Vladimir Putin over interference in the US elections, calling his response as "shameful" and "disgraceful".


John McCain, the senior Republican senator, said Trump's seeming acceptance of Putin's denial was a historical "low point" for the US presidency and the Helsinki summit between the two leaders a "tragic mistake".

McCain said the joint press conference between Trump and Putin in Helsinki "was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

"The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate," McCain said in a blistering statement.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."
