MADISON — Despite widespread bipartisan condemnation over President Trump’s siding Vladimir Putin over the U.S. intelligence community at last week’s U.S-Russia Summit, Rep. Glenn Grothman says he’s “not concerned.”

During the interview on UpFront aired Sunday, Grothman made repeated excuses for Trump’s behavior, which Sen. John McCain characterized as “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” Grothman dismissed Trump’s denial of Russian meddling, suggesting instead that people “look at what President Trump does, not what he says.”

Grothman even went so far as to suggest the special counsel investigation into Trump end, claiming “we haven’t really found anything,” despite the fact that just weeks ago 12 Russian agents were indicted for conspiring to interfere in our elections as part of the probe.

Here’s what else Grothman had to say:

“The fact that he met with Putin is a good thing.”

“I’m glad he’s there [in Russia].”

“If you look at his overall policy towards Russia, I think it’s positive.”

“Glenn Grothman is carrying water for a president who’d rather mock our law enforcement and intelligence communities than protect our democracy from future attacks,” said Courtney Beyer, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson. “It’s time for Republicans to hold Trump accountable and put country over party. Will Glenn Grothman answer the call, or will he continue to make excuses for a man who jeopardizes our national security?”

    Why don’t you try telling the truth…your words ” mock our law enforcement and intelligence communities “!!! Trump loves our law enforcement!!!! But, NOT the dirty scum at the TOP of those agencies!!! Try telling me that THEY are not dirty and trying to bring down our government! Shame on you!

    I agree Judy. Alex Jones has talked about this at length and he makes a lot of sense. Top federal law enforcement officials and leaders of intelligence agencies are part of a Deep State plot to overthrow the government and install George Soros as the new POTUS. Try proving otherwise. People can’t.

    Breitbart / Alex Jones NEWSFLASH / NEWSFLASH : “enforcement officials and leaders of intelligence agencies are part of a Deep State plot to overthrow the government and install George Soros as the new POTUS.”

    Judy, you take this one. Your liberal use of exclamation points leads me to believe that you are on top of this.

  5. Judy says:

    Lol, I know, sometimes I get carried away, especially when someone lies.
