Under fire in Congress, Pompeo defends Trump’s Putin summit

“I have tremendous faith in you, I think you’re a patriot … but it’s the president’s actions that create tremendous distrust in our nation,” the committee’s Republican chairman, Bob Corker, told Pompeo.

“Is there some strategy behind creating doubt in U.S. senators’ minds, on both sides of the aisle, doubt in the American people as to what his motivations are?” added Corker, a frequent critic of Trump.
