( CNN) Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware introduced a resolution Wednesday to reaffirm support for the US intelligence community following President Donald Trump's comments Monday siding with Russian President Vladimir Putin over US intelligence agencies about election interference.

Flake and Coons, both members of the Senate Judiciary and Foreign Relations committees, will speak on the Senate floor Thursday to request unanimous passage of the resolution.

“This body must reaffirm that we stand with the men and women of the Department of Justice, ” Flake said in a statement. “I hope the President will take the word of our intelligence agencies rather than the empty words of a dictator.”
