Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) released the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s expulsion of 60 Russian intelligence and diplomatic officers from the United States, and the closing of the Russian consulate in Seattle.

“This decision by the Trump Administration sends a clear message to nations around the globe that the United States has no tolerance for Russia’s hostile and threatening actions that have put the security of our nation, and that of our allies, at risk.  I applaud President Trump for standing in solidarity with our allies and will continue to work with the administration and my colleagues in Congress to hold Russia accountable for its thuggish and destabilizing behavior.”
