Grassley’s Rural Town Hall Dominated By Trump Questions

Criticism over Donald Trump’s behavior and the handling of the Russia investigation dominated Sen. Chuck Grassley’s town hall event on Friday morning, the Des Moines Register reports. The meeting took place in “a rural western Iowa county where Republicans outnumber Democrats nearly two-to-one,” the Register reports, and where Trump swept more than half of the vote during the 2016 election.

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley faced relentless questioning about President Donald Trump’s fitness for office and his own handling of the investigation into Russian election meddling at a rural town meeting here Friday morning.

Amid a smattering of questions about trucking regulations, homeopathic medicine and pension security, a steady stream of attendees pressed Grassley to defend his handling of the ongoing Russia investigation and to offer his views on Trump’s conduct on the job.
