The Democratic chairs of three House committees Monday demanded information about private talks between Presidents Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin — and access to Trump’s translator.

In a letter, the heads of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform panels sent broad requests for details about the leaders’ private meetings by phone and in person.

In addition to document requests, the committees asked to interview interpreters who sat in on meetings, including a one-on-one session in Helsinki last summer.

Monday’s request demanded that people who “have knowledge” of the talks, and anyone who’s even seen or heard “readouts” of what transpired in the meetings should be made available, as they are following up on media reports that have accused Trump of concealing the details of his communication with Putin.

“These allegations, if true, raise profound national security, counterintelligence, and foreign policy concerns, especially in light of Russia’s ongoing active measures campaign to improperly influence American elections,” the chairmen wrote, the Washington Times reported.

The Democratic chairmen — Reps. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, Elliot Engel and Adam Schiff of California — said Congress has a right to see what Trump is communicating to foreign leaders and whether he’s “acted in the national interest.”

Their request came hours after House Judiciary Committee head Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., fired off 81 document requests to the White House, Justice Department, Trump’s business empire and other figures who’ve had a connection to Trump over the years.

  1. IF I WAS PRESIDENT TRUMP I WOULD TELL ALL OF THESE ROBBERS OF TAXPAYER MONEY TO GO BACK TO THEIR RUBBER ROOMS AND NOT GIVE THEM ANYTHING THE ARTICLE ALSO SAYS PRIVATE MEETING. HE’S ALLOWED IN PRIVATE TO TALK TO ANYBODY HE WANTS TO JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. TELL THEM TO STOP FUCKING OFF ON WITCH HUNTS, WASTING TAXPAYER MONEY AND DO YOUR JOB AND GET TO WORK.

  2. It is an opinion, but believe Dem-O-Cats are burying themselves into a very deep state that will take years to recover from. From the known up front idiots to the newcomers like “AOC”! They haven’t a clue what the hell they are doing and its best so they don’t stop anytime soon.

    By election 2020 there will most likely not be one common sense dem-o-cat standing including those in California [course they stuff the ballot boxes, then scream Voter Fraud]. The major flaw of the Dem-O-Cats is simple, they believe the American Voters is STUPID; like the Dem-O’s, but they are not and will provide a major win for the GOP/Independents that will be good if we don’t have more than 15% holdovers. It will be a time for the GOP/Independents to sharp our Country back into the bastion of LIFE, LIBERTY & PURSUE OF HAPPINESS. Colleges & Universities once again Teach American Exceptionalism, why Capitalism works & AMERICA IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD-SHOULD U DISAGREE WE WILL FLY U OUT TO IRAN, ARGENTINA, CHINA OR RUSSIA.

  3. Of course, they have no right and once again we see these vile serpents for what they truly are, children of satan and Godlessness. Schiff is part and parcel to the Soros organization(s), three other two are beholden to the NWO elitists as well. They have no right and the POTUS has presidential discretion and privilege. When these monsters disclose all of their private discussions regarding their corrupt activities then possibly, just possibly, this can be a point of conversation. Mr. President simply tell them no in no uncertain terms. Instead of worrying our nation, its citizens and freedom and liberty, we see these satanists doing their communist work at all times.
