Trump Concealed Details Of Putin Meetings From Administration Officials

In unprecedented moves, The Washington Post reports, on at least five separate occasions President Trump concealed details of those conversations, "including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials". USA officials learned of Trump's actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Tillerson.

Citing current and former USA officials, the report claims that after a 2017 meeting between the two heads of state in Germany, Trump also instructed the translator not to disclose any details of what transpired with administration officials.

"And I can tell you this, if you ask the folks in Russian Federation, I've been tougher on Russian Federation than anybody else, any other ― probably any other president period", he said.

Trump's secrecy surrounding Putin "is not only unusual by historical standards, it is outrageous", said Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state now at the Brookings Institution, who participated in more than a dozen meetings between former presidents Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s.

El FBI investigó si Trump trabajaba en secreto para Rusia
Repitió además que mantener buenas relaciones con Rusia es "positivo y no algo negativo" y que espera tenerlas algún día. El New York Times dijo que el FBI había sospechado de los vínculos de Trump con Rusia durante la campaña de 2016.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a White House spokesperson told the Post that the Trump's administration has attempted to "improve the relationship with Russia" after the Obama administration "pursued a flawed "reset" policy that sought engagement for the sake of engagement".

According to officials, "the president thinks the presence of subordinates impairs his ability to establish a rapport with Putin".

The Post's revelation has come one day after a New York Times article reported the FBI had opened an investigation into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of Russian Federation.
