The White House refused to say whether they will turn over transcripts of Donald Trump’s meeting last week in which he revealed highly classified intelligence to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
When asked about the requests from lawmakers, Sean Spicer pointed to previous statements pushing back on reports detailing the meeting.
Spicer instead went after leaks that led to the revelation being made public this week, saying, “What has occurred today with these leaks is frankly dangerous.”
Lawmakers in both parties called for the White House to hand over transcripts of the meeting after Trump himself acknowledged earlier Tuesday that he shared sensitive information with the Russians.
“I am calling on the White House to make a transcript of the meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador available to the congressional Intelligence Committees as soon as possible,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.
“For the purpose of transparency, the White House should share a transcript of the meeting with the House and Senate intelligence committees,” Rep. Mike Gallagher, a former intelligence officer, tweeted Tuesday.
