Via Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump suggested “an immediate investigation” Friday into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s ties to Russia, appearing to make light of ongoing investigations into possible contacts between Trump associates and Kremlin officials.
“We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin,” Trump tweeted. “A total hypocrite!”
The post — which came via an iPhone, indicating that it came from a staffer rather than the president himself — included a 2003 Associated Press image of Schumer having coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts with Russian President Vladimir Putin in New York. According to the caption, Putin was visiting the first New York gas station of Lukoil, a Russian company.
Schumer fired back at Trump via Twitter, saying he would “happily talk” about his contact with Putin and the Russian leader’s associates. It “took place in ’03 in full view of press & public under oath,” he said. “Would you &your team?”
