On Monday, President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, yielding diplomatic results like having Putin deny, once again, Russian interference in the 2016 US election, as he has in the past.

“I am flabbergasted. I bet Putin is tired of all this winning,” the advisor drily observed. “Is there anything he didn’t get out of the president, including a failure to criticize him and his government for meddling in our election?”

Alexander also shared the public statement of Republican Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) which contradicted the President’s assertion that he sees no evidence Russia worked to sway the election.

“There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world,” the speaker noted.

Just eight days ago, Railsback passed away, and while his daughter Kathryn works through her grief, she authored an editorial in the Washington Post calling on Republicans to listen to their better angels.

"As a young Republican representative from Illinois, Dad took his responsibilities as a legislator and a lawyer seriously. He believed in fairness and in upholding the rule of law," she remembered.
