Congressman Garret Graves issued the following statement regarding President Trump's comments at a news conference held in Helsinki today: 

Multiple investigations have concluded that Russia did meddle in U.S. elections. Whether we are talking assassinations in the UK and elsewhere, subversive activities in Syria, intelligence efforts in the United States, or military incursions into sovereign countries, Putin and the Russian government’s integrity and trustworthiness are about as credible as SNL’s Tommy Flanagan – except it’s not funny. I strongly disagree with some of the president’s remarks today and urge him to provide the American people with some additional clarity regarding our relationship with Russia.
