The Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says Trump officials need to disclose any and all contacts with Russia — sooner rather than later.
“You should get everyone in a room, and from the moment you watched either ‘Dr. Zhivago’ or read ‘Brothers Karamazov’ to the point you had a shot of liquor with a guy in a furry hat, you need to disclose every contact you have ever had with Russia,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, said Wednesday on “CBS Evening News” when asked what he would say to the Trump administration.
“We’re not going to have any more of these disclosures coming out on the front page of the newspaper,” Gowdy said. “Go ahead and tell the special counsel every connection you’ve had. Get this behind us before Labor Day.”
Gowdy was reacting to the recent disclosure of a June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr.[… ]and a Russian lawyer[.]
