Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA10) has joined democrats in demanding the White House tell Congress what classified information was disclosed in Trump’s meeting with the Russians. From the Washington Post,
“Once again we are faced with inexplicable stories coming from the White House that are highly troubling,” Comstock said in a statement about the information President Trump acknowledged sharing last week with Russia’s foreign minister that may have jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
“We need to have immediate classified briefings on what occurred at this meeting so that Congress can at least know as much as Russian leaders and know the impact on our national security, our allies, and our men and women protecting our country,” she wrote.
Referring to the firing of FBI director James Comey, Comstock said,
“Both Democrats and Republicans attacked the FBI Director at various times for various reasons and called for his ouster,” she said in a statement about Comey’s termination. “However, I can’t defend or explain tonight’s actions or timing of the firing of FBI Director James Comey.”
About Russia and the election, she said: “There must be an independent investigation that the American people can trust.”
