As House Democrats were preparing to announce articles of impeachment against President Trump Tuesday morning, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer accused the president of conspiracy with Russia.
Schumer tweeted out a link to an article by CNN, which announced that President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are meeting with the Russian foreign minister on Tuesday.
“Trump, Lavrov, and Pompeo are meeting in private this afternoon. What conspiracy are they cooking up today?” Schumer declared.
CNN reported on Monday evening:
President Donald Trump is planning to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday in Washington, an encounter that is sure to draw significant scrutiny amid several ongoing controversies involving Trump and Russia.
Trump will meet with Lavrov alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to discuss the state of their bilateral relationship, a senior administration official told CNN. The State Department had previously announced that Lavrov would travel to Washington this week for meetings with Pompeo to “discuss a broad range of regional and bilateral issues.”
Trump, Lavrov, and Pompeo are meeting in private this afternoon.
