President you not protect "our democracy" : Lawmakers join protest outside White House amid Russia fallout

President you not protect "our democracy"
Democratic lawmakers joined activists in front of the White House late Wednesday night for a candlelight vigil to protest President Donald Trump's summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

The event, which also voiced support for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, was the third straight night of protests -- and came two days after Trump appeared to side with Putin on the issue of Russian electoral meddling at Monday's summit in Helsinki.

The president drew criticisms from both parties for indicating he accepted Putin's denial that the Kremlin attempt to sway the 2016 U.S. vote.

"Welcome defenders of democracy; you are a beautiful sight!" said Rep. John Sarbanes, D-Md., at the rally. "Mr. President, why will you not protect our democracy?"
