Donald Trump and Vladmir Putin met in private in Helsinki on Monday for little over two hours. There are those in the media and in Congress who think they have a right to know what was discussed. Perhaps the translator took notes? I find this absurd. There is an absolute need to keep sensitive diplomatic discussions private. Congress leaks information, and they seem immune to prosecution. Congress wanted all kinds of information after the Iran deal was completed. I remember one Republican congressman asking John Kerry if he used his cell phone to send text messages. Republicans went totally nuts on Benghazi, and deleted personal emails They hold closed door sessions to protect confidentiality, then immediately following the interview, publicly smear the person who testified. Last victim was Lisa Page.
Private is private. Democrats need to act like adults in the room.
I am working on a bit longer piece on the Helsinki disaster. Just thought I’d get this one out first.
