    Trump had 5 meetings ...

    ... with Putin Nobody has notes for ..









    as reported in the ComPost


    As a result, U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years. Such a gap would be unusual in any presidency, let alone one that Russia sought to install through what U.S. intelligence agencies have described as an unprecedented campaign of election interference.

    Former U.S. officials said that Trump’s behavior is at odds with the known practices of previous presidents, who have relied on senior aides to witness meetings and take comprehensive notes then shared with other officials and departments.

    Trump’s secrecy surrounding Putin “is not only unusual by historical standards, it is outrageous,” said Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state now at the Brookings Institution, who participated in more than a dozen meetings between President Bill Clinton and then-Russian President Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s. “It handicaps the U.S. government — the experts and advisers and Cabinet officers who are there to serve [the president] — and it certainly gives Putin much more scope to manipulate Trump.”





    considering all of the leaks from progressives in the White House, can you blame the guy

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    So you think it is acceptable for the President of the United States to meet with the leader of one of this country's primary adversaries in complete secrecy?

    Come on comrade, aren't you and your little mini me constantly harping on the need for open govt?

    By the time of the Helsinki meeting, Trump was already under intense scrutiny over Russia. So what does he do...he meets with Putin in secret? You've got to be smoking some seriously potent weed to think that is the proper way to do things.

    According to the article Trump shared the details with no one...that included his handpicked best of the best advisors...not "progressives in the White House.

    BTW...here are the first few paragraphs of the article:
    President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi#mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

    Trump did so after a meeting with Putin in 2017 in Hamburg that was also attended by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S. officials learned of Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

    The constraints that Trump imposed are part of a broader pattern by the president of shielding his communications with Putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high-ranking officials in his own administration from fully knowing what he has told one of the United States’ main adversaries.
    They aren't talking about Trump keeping stuff from actual coffee boys, comrade.

    It was way to open with when the leftover lefties were publishing meeting details before he even left the meeting.

    By the time of the Helsinki meeting, Trump was already under intense scrutiny over Russia. So what does he do...he meets with Putin in secret? You've got to be smoking some seriously potent weed to think that is the proper way to do things.

    You are not the arbiter of what's proper

    So?

    BTW...here are the first few paragraphs of the article:
    So a lefty rag sees a conspiracy, who would of thought it.

    They aren't talking about Trump keeping stuff from actual coffee boys, comrade.
    I'm having a hard time being outraged here.
