Schumer to Trump: No one-on-one talks with Putin until Helsinki details released

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that President Trump should not hold any more one-on-one meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin until the administration details what happened during Monday's summit in Helsinki.

“Until we know what happened at that two hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin. In the United States, in Russia, or anywhere else," Schumer said in a statement.

Talk of a second Trump-Putin meeting comes days after the two leaders met one-on-one for two hours in Finland. Trump sparked widespread backlash during a press conference after the meeting by refusing to condemn Moscow's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump then tried to walk back his comments on Tuesday, saying he accepts the intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the election before adding that "other people" could have meddled as well.



So, Chuck thinks he can put the President of the United States on super-double-secret-probation and ban him from talking foreign policy to other heads-of-state?  Hey Chuck - go eat a bag of dicks. - Minuteman
