Murkowski disappointed in President

    Washington, DC (KINY) Alaska US Senator Lisa Murkowski said she was stunned that President Donald Trump did not confront Russian President Vladimir Putin on the issue of alleged interference in US elections.

    In a statement, Murkowski said Trump validated Putin at the expense of American intelligence, "By giving credence to Putin's claim to have not interfered in our elections."

    Murkowski added the President's stance was a sad diminishment of our great nation.

    Senator Dan Sullivan said he also disagreed with the President's remarks.  He said measures must be taken to prevent future election meddling.  He also wants step taken to hold Russia accountable.
