GOP Lawmaker Struggles To Get His Story Together After Coming Back From Russia Meeting In Moscow: Report

Russian government officials. According to most of the senators, the meeting was tense as they attempted to hold the Kremlin accountable for interfering with the U.S. election in 2016. But one senator thought differently.

According to The Daily Beast, all but one senator agreed that the closed doors meeting was tense and they grilled Kremlin officials about a host of issues – including the election interference. That’s why comments made by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) were quite odd.

According to the Beast, Johnson claimed that Russia’s interference has been “blown it way out of proportion” and that it’s “not the greatest threat to our democracy.”

Johnson went on to say that the U.S. should reevaluate its sanctions against Russia, claiming that “you’d be hard-pressed to say that sanctions against Russia are really working all that well,” the Beast reported.

Johnson’s comments stand out from those of his colleagues. On Monday, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) told CNN that he personally warned Russian government officials to “stop screwing with American elections.” He went on to call Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov a “bully” and a “wise-ass.”

“The Russian leadership that we met with talked about the sanctions and how they were making no difference, but then they kept talking about the sanction,” Kennedy told the Beast.
