Trump is not following the usual protocols for documenting meetings and calls with foreign leaders. What is he hiding? Hopefully, House Democrats can get to the bottom of this. Republicans have just covered up for Trump since they are afraid of his cult.
In their first face to face meeting, Putin denied that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election. “I believe you,” trump said. https://t.co/aqj2Tmgbw3

Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreter’s notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin. The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now? Shouldn’t we find out whether our president is really putting “America first?” https://t.co/hzgfTRl653

"Are you okay with the fact that the Kremlin knows more about these meetings than US intelligence and the national security community?" https://t.co/ANqvIVOlW7

Republicans just cover up for Trump. It’s disgraceful.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy does not say whether he is concerned about report that President Trump has concealed details about his conversations with Vladimir Putin. He says it's part of Trump's strategy to "create a personal relationship" with world leaders pic.twitter.com/hHQ4o0aevB

Trump reportedly went to “extraordinary lengths” to hide details of Putin talks from his own officials. https://t.co/uxlRSuECIU

I keep coming back to this. I have some memory about an article on Putin's tradecraft as RUS president; no cell phones, no notes, etc.
I wonder if Putin said to Trump in their first meeting to make sure the translator doesn't keep notes. https://t.co/JCCebzuR5X

I speak from experience: the biggest challenge as a spy is securely talking to your assets. I suspect that President Trump received directions by Putin how to speak securely and specific taskings. This, I believe, is when our President became an asset of the Russian government. https://t.co/NZIDjXCVQY
