Sen. Ben Cardin said Tuesday the U.S. and Russia must remain in communication despite the growing controversy surrounding President Trump’s possible connections to the country.

“I think we have to have communications between the president of Russia and the United States. So that’s fine. I don’t mind the conversation,” Mr. Cardin, Maryland Democrat, said on CNN.

The senator was referring to Mr. Trump’s planned conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. But Mr. Cardin said Mr. Trump must use this time to emphasize the severity of Russia’s actions in the past year.

“President Trump has to be very clear that Russia meddled in our elections, and they’re going to pay a heavy price for doing that,” he said.

    Funny how these same Democrats who are wanking about President Trump speaking to Putin were not so bothered when Obama told the Russian Foreign Minister that he should tell “Vlad” that he (Obama) was about to have more latitude following the 2012 election. Cardin should ask about that. And how about the (mis-spelled) “RESET” button gold old Hillary and Barry pressed to get ni closer with the Russians? Was Cardin against that, also?

    It seems that Russian ‘meddling’ did not even approach the level of ‘meddling’ that the USA has done on a global scale since the end of WWII.It is past time that the ‘pot’ has stopped calling the kettle ‘black’. Note that US ‘meddling’ has even included assassinations.
