Solid Gold Berjangka | Ketua DPR AS: Putin Tak Akan Diundang Pidato di Depan Kongres AS

Solid Gold Berjangka ~  Tokoh-tokoh partai Republik dalam Kongres menjauhkan diri dari Presiden Trump yang mengundang pemimpin Rusia Vladimir Putin berkunjung ke Washington musim gugur tahun ini. Mereka mengatakan presiden Rusia itu tidak akan diundang ke gedung Kongres.

Ketua DPR Paul Ryan mengatakan hari Selasa (24/7) bahwa Putin tidak akan diundang untuk berbicara di depan anggota Kongres, “karena kesempatan itu hanya kami berikan kepada sekutu-sekutu Amerika.”

Ryan dan pemimpin mayoritas dalam Senat Mitch McConnell mengatakan tidak berminat mengadakan pertemuan dengan Putin, apabila pemimpin Russia itu menerima undangan Trump untuk berkunjung ke Gedung Putih, menyusul pertemuan mereka di Helsinki bulan ini.

“Ketua DPR dan saya telah menjelaskan bahwa Putin tidak akan diundang ke gedung Capitol,” kata McConnell kepada wartawan.

Trump membantah temuan badan-badan intelijen Amerika bahwa Rusia campur tangan dalam pemilihan presiden di Amerika tahun 2016. Tapi Trump kemudian mengeluarkan koreksi atas ucapannya, dan mengatakan ia percaya pada laporan badan-badan intelijen Amerika itu.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, accused of interfering in U.S. elections, will not be invited to address Congress or visit the Capitol if he accepts President Donald Trump’s invitation to come to Washington, Republican congressional leaders said on Tuesday.

The comments by House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reflect the unease among U.S. lawmakers, including Trump’s fellow Republicans, about the president’s outreach to Putin after their July 16 summit in Helsinki.

Ryan and McConnell rejected the idea of Putin being asked to address a joint session of Congress, typically considered an honor for visiting foreign leaders.

“We would certainly not be giving him an invitation to do a joint session,” Ryan added. “That’s something we reserve for allies.”

“The speaker and I have made it clear that Putin will not be welcome up here at the Capitol,” McConnell said later.

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russia used a campaign of propaganda and hacking to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to aid Trump’s candidacy, and has warned that Moscow is working to meddle in the November congressional elections.
