Trump is refusing a request for all documents related to his communications with Putin, but he thinks that Democrats are laughing at him behind his back.
Donald Trump refuses to release his communications with Putin
Trump said, “Just a continuation of the same witch hunt. They know it. And behind closed doors, they laugh at it. It’s just a continuation of the same nonsense. Everybody — they ought to go to work, get infrastructure done, and get a lot of other things done instead of wasting everybody’s time.”

The document request was made by House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) who said, “Congress has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight over the Department and the White House to determine, among other things, the impact of those communications on U.S. foreign policy, whether federal officials, including President Trump, have acted in the national interest, and whether the applicable laws, regulations, and agency procedures with respect to diplomatic communications with President Putin and other foreign leaders have been complied with and remain sufficient.”
If Trump is innocent, why is he hiding his conversations with Putin?
If Trump is correct, and these investigations are a waste of time, why is he hiding his conversations with Putin from his own government? The fastest way to make these investigations go away is to turn over all of the documents. Trump’s conversations with Putin clearly aren’t innocent. The president has refused to allow other US officials and translators into his meetings with the Russian leader.
Trump sounds guilty when he refuses to release documents. Democrats aren’t wasting time doing their job by conducting oversight. It is the president who is stalling for time and hoping that he can put Democrats off until after the 2020 election.
House Democrats aren’t going anywhere, and they will eventually find what Trump is hiding.
Democrats aren’t laughing at Trump. They are investigating him
It is ironic that the biggest con man ever to occupy the Oval Office thinks that Democrats are laughing at him. What Trump doesn’t see is that Democrats are laughing at him. Republicans are laughing at him. Independents are laughing at him. The entire country outside of the thirty plus percent who support him is laughing at Trump.
Trump wishes that this all was a joke, but it is very real.
Democrats aren’t laughing, They are investigating and that is why Trump is so scared.
