Trump tweets photo of Schumer and Putin, demands investigation


President Donald Trump called Friday for investigations into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's links to Russian Federation, sharing articles that appeared to show the Democratic lawmakers in past meetings with Moscow officials.

Early Friday afternoon, Trump - whose campaign and new administration have been dogged by reports of their ties to Moscow - tweeted a yearsold picture of Schumer and Russian President Vladimir Putin laughing, drinking coffee and eating doughnuts.

The photo appears to be from 2003, when Putin made a public appearance at a New York City gas station that had recently been bought by Russia's Lukoil.

On Friday, a Tweet was posted to Trump's personal Twitter Inc (NASDAQ: TWTR) account accusing Schumer of hypocrisy and proposing a parallel investigation into his Russian ties. "Would you &your team?"

While Trump has yet to lay down his Russian Federation policy, most signs suggest no swift changes in the relationship, which sank to a post-Cold War low under his predecessor Barack Obama, mostly due to bitter differences over Syria and Ukraine.

President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday amid the latest political pressure about Trump administration contacts with Russian Federation. The belligerent parties are President Donald Trump and Sen.

Trump has admitted, however, that Sessions could have stated his response "more accurately" at his confirmation hearing. He tweeted an article about Pelosi's 2010 meeting with Kislyak, which came a day after Pelosi told reporters that she had never met Kislyak. "We must evaluate the scope of Russia's interference in our election".

Later Friday, Trump added House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to the list of Democratic leaders whom he believes should be investigated over Russian Federation ties.

Mr Sessions was accused of "lying under oath" by Democrats in Congress who called on him to resign.
