Warner: Trump Admin Has 'Clearly' Not Been Forthcoming On Russia Meddling

Source: Talking Points Memo



By ESME CRIBB Published JULY 16, 2017 11:04 AM

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Sunday said President Donald Trump’s administration has “clearly” not “been forthcoming on what they know and when they knew it” with regard to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“Clearly, this administration has not been forthcoming on what they know and when they knew it with regard to Russian interference in the elections,” Warner said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” He cited Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ and former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s denials (later retracted) that they met with Russian officials.

“What we’ve seen is a constant effort to hide contacts with Russians. We’ve seen this pattern repeat itself,” Warner said.

Warner cited Donald Trump Jr.’s publication of his emails arranging a meeting with a Russian lawyer after he was promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of an effort by the Russian government to aid his father’s campaign.

2. I wish they'd quit saying "meddling"


Call it what it was.."attack on our democracy".

Instead of saying, "Russia's meddling in the election" they need to say, "Russia's attack on our democracy".

Frustrating.

7. Really! It's as if someone accused of child molesting convinces everybody to call it 'meddling

with a child'. Sounds unsavory but not like the criminal act it is.

6. "Not been forthcoming"?

Is that the same as "lying their ass off""?
