Trump calls for probe into Schumer over old Putin photo

True to his philosophy that attack is always the best form of defence, Trump tweeted an old photo of Chuck Schumer, the Democratic minority leader in the Senate, smiling alongside the Russian president, Vladimir Putin. Chuck Schumer (D - New York), American Democrats are pushing for investigations into executive relationships with Russian Federation, and President Donald Trump is responding tit for tat.

Schumer fired back to remind Trump that, unlike some Trump associates, he only met with Putin in "full view of the press and public".

Donald Trump's trying to take down Chuck Schumer - with a photo from 2003. Its unverified contents also claimed Moscow's spies believe they have compromising information on the new president that they could use to blackmail him.

"Would you & your team?" he asked. Russian Federation had offered support for the United States after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and cooperation in the war in Afghanistan. Even though the Washington Post story about Sessions' meetings with Sergei Kislyak came from Justice Department officials, Trump's still wildly lashing out, this time with a photo involving coffee and donuts.

President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday amid the latest political pressure about Trump administration contacts with Russian Federation.

"In retrospect, I should have slowed down a little and said I did meet one Russian official a couple times", said Sessions during a Thursday news conference.

Schumer is among the lawmakers pushing for an investigation into the relationship between Trump and Russian officials.

Now Attorney General Jeff Sessions is under fire for his conversations with Kislyak that he failed to disclose during confirmation hearings before the Senate Judicial Committee.

But given White House opposition and Republican control of Congress, he said none of the options seem likely at the moment.
