On Monday, House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees set out to analyze their legal opportunities to complain to the interpreters present at President Donald Trump's meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to ABC News. A piece in the Washington Post that says Trump has gone to "extraordinary lengths" to hide details of his conversations with Putin from members of his own administration "has changed the calculation" and "raises a new set of questions", a high-level democratic assistant told ABC News. "We are investigating the legal consequences of this and we are discussing our options. Our lawyers sit with the lawyers' lawyers to have it done."
Aiden warned that any action would not be forthcoming, and if they decide to issue the defendant, it will probably be weeks away. This is not the first time the problem has been raised. After Trump's meeting with Putin in Helsinki in July, the Democrats kept secret that some lawmakers wanted to get Trump's interpreter, Marina Gross, to testify to the congress. Eventually she was not forced to testify. At that time, many questioned asking for an interpreter to answer questions about something that took place behind closed doors. Even some Democrats have said it could set a new precedent that would make it harder for Presidents to speak honestly with other world leaders.
Despite these concerns, House Intelligence Committee President Adam Schiff raised the opportunity for Sunday that Democrats would seek Trump's interpreter's answer. "Last year we tried to get the interpreter's notes or testimony from the private meeting between Trump and Putin." Schiff wrote on Twitter . "The Republicans in our committee voted down. Will they be with us now?" He then added: "Shouldn't we find out if our president really puts America first?" "
Schiff was not the only democrat to take action after the Post story. "Whenever Trump meets Putin, the country is not told anything," said Foreign Affairs chairman Eliot Engel tweeted . "America deserves the truth, and the Foreign Affairs Committee will try to get to the bottom of it."
