GOP Sen Grassley on Trump-Putin Call: ‘I Wouldn’t Have a Conversation with a Criminal’

Wednesday on CNN, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said “I wouldn’t have a conversation with a criminal,” when asked about President Donald Trump‘s call to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on winning the election.

Grassley said, “I don’t think I’ll talk about Trump making a phone call, but I’m very happy to make a comment on what you asked me. I think Putin is a criminal. What he did in Georgia, what he did in Ukraine, what he’s done in the Baltics, what he’s done in London, poisoning people with nerve gas, that’s a criminal activity. I wouldn’t have a conversation with a criminal.”
