Summary

It’s a hot topic in general, particularly amid criticism of the Kremlin’s treatment of Navalny.Putin reacted in characteristic fashion, drawing attention to U.S. abuses in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the continued existence of the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay.But he then drew the insurrection into the same broad argument, saying mildly that “people came to the U.S. Capitol with political demands.” The law enforcement response, he suggested, had been too harsh.This view — which replicates the talking points of the most fervent supporters of former President TrumpDonald TrumpKushner lands book deal, slated for release in 2022 Biden moves to undo Trump trade legacy with EU deal Progressives rave over Harrison's start at DNC MORE — irked Biden when it was put to him at his news conference.The president said any comparison of Jan. 6 with legitimate protest was “ridiculous.”The Jan. 6 rioters, he added, were “literally criminals” who had broken through a security cordon to assail the Capitol.Biden praised as 'not Trump'Biden had one big advantage going into Wednesday’s summit — the low bar set by his predecessor.When Trump met Putin in Helsinki in 2018, the U.S. president was widely criticized for a craven performance.
