Democrats Promise Probe of Trump’s Meetings with Putin

WASHINGTON – House Democrats said on Saturday they would explore allegations that President Donald Trump has sought to limit documentation of his meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (Democrat, New York), responding to a report about Trump’s meetings with the Russian president, said his committee would hold hearings on the claims, in what could be one of the first actions by Democrats to probe the president since they took control of the House in January.

“Every time Trump meets with Putin, the country is told nothing,” Engel said in a written statement. “We will be holding hearings on the mysteries swirling around Trump’s bizarre relationship with Putin.”

Trump said on Saturday claims he took extraordinary steps to keep his discussions with Putin secret were ridiculous.

“I had a conversation like every president does,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News. “You sit with the president of various countries. I do it with all countries. I’m not keeping anything under wraps, I couldn’t care less.”

A Washington Post report, citing current and former United States officials, said there are no classified or other detailed records of Trump’s meetings with Putin over the past two years.
