The leading Democrat on the House Oversight Committee has responded to the latest bombshell reports on Donald Trump Jr., with an extensive "request for documentation" from the administration over his meeting with a Russian lawyer on June 9, 2016.
"Your decision to take this meeting raises significant questions about your judgment and your respect for the very principles that our democracy has been founded upon," said ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). "Furthermore, I am concerned that you failed to disclose this meeting to the authorities or the public for almost a year, even when the President and his team repeatedly denied any contact between the campaign and Russia."
