It has come to my attention that you were among the harshest critics of President Trump following his joint appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.


While I may not agree with everything the President said, the level of outrage from the political class and the media has been ridiculous. Some have charged "treason." Some have called for immediate impeachment for "high crimes and misdemeanors." And many Republicans have leveled their harshest criticism of the President.


President Trump was reacting to 18 months of bogus "collusion" investigations that have been the result of the most partisan attacks against a President by Deep State and media forces we have ever seen. The fact is, Russia's efforts to influence our election are called... espionage. And it's not much different than U.S. espionage to impact other nations, notably by President Obama in places like Israel.


President Trump is taking American foreign policy in a new direction. In the process, he is exposing the corruption of our Deep State system that has dragged America into foreign conflicts for far too long. Disagreement with the President is one thing. But to foment the anti-Trump hatred as a member of Congress is beyond the pale.
