Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) accused President Trump on Friday of being more open with Russian officials than he has been with the American people.
“The president of the United States disclosed more to Russian officials than the American public. This isnt normal,” Harris wrote on Twitter.
Included in Harris’ tweet was a link to a New York Times article reporting that Trump had told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during a meeting last week that firing FBI Director James Comey relieved him of “great pressure,” presumably because of the bureau’s probe into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia.
In that same conversation, Trump referred to Comey as “crazy” and “a real nut job,” according to the Times.
Trump has faced a steady flow of controversial revelations over the past 10 days, including that he asked Comey in February to end the FBI’s investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The Senate and House intelligence committees are also probing possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The president has repeatedly denied any sort of coordination between his campaign and Russia or any improper connections with the Kremlin.
