A day after it’s reported that FBI officials suspected Trump might be working for Russia, we find out Trump has gone to “extraordinary lengths” to conceal details of his talks with Putin. https://t.co/cTk0zmx1yg

The fact that Trump is Putin's lackey is as clear as day, and has been since 2016.

* The U.S. intelligence community assessed Putin sought to help Trump win election.
* Reporting indicates the FBI deemed the President a possible security threat.
* Donald Trump met privately with Putin in Helsinki.
* We don’t know what happened at that meeting. pic.twitter.com/XXwNZqHhGC

The benign justification offered for Trump not wanting any record of his convos with Putin is that he felt burned by leaks early in his term. So I’d love to know whether Trump was as secretive in his conversations with Xi or Kim. I bet the answer is no. https://t.co/w8JoVn0z4i

Given last night's news that the FBI was looking into whether Trump was working on behalf of the Kremlin, this meeting in Helsinki with Putin deserves further examining https://t.co/ZK3zfh3z7x

I talked to @adamgoldmanNYT about his big Russia-Trump story in the NYT, the atmosphere within the FBI after Comey’s firing, the dangers of opening a counterintelligence investigation on the president, & whether Mueller is actually close to wrapping up. https://t.co/PIpPT25Ni8

Trump's secrecy surrounding Putin "is not only unusual by historical standards, it is outrageous," said Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state who participated in more than a dozen meetings between Clinton and Yeltsin in the 1990s. "It handicaps the U.S. government." https://t.co/Fw4kJ1EnMt

When you see @DavidLammy give a speech like this, you realise that we have the politicians available to lead us out of this quagmire. That’s why it’s all the more heartbreaking to think this is all self inflicted. If there is. GE I hope Labour ditch Corbyn & go with David. https://t.co/SIbCVeVCCc
