Members of Congress

The Washington Post revealed this week that Donald Trump has been having private conversations with Vladimir Putin, with no staff present, and has been consistently destroying all transcripts, despite US customs and precedent.

These actions are incredibly dangerous and callous. Presidents' staff need to understand the conversations and negotiations their presidents are conducting so they can effectively support and strategize alongside him. More, the destruction of all transcripts, including confidential transcripts, prevents the American people from understanding our own history and prevents future presidents from understanding the precedent on which their foreign policy strategy should be built.

These actions alone should be considered treasonous and gross collusion. Congress should step in by passing a law that would mandate the President produce transcripts of all conversations he has with the Russian head of state. These transcripts can be confidential, but should be available to the President's staff, key members of Congress for inspection, and eventually to the public (after declassification due to time.)

We cannot continue to allow this President to continue to conduct business with Russia as though he is not under criminal investigation for collusion. We must get him under control.

Signed,

President Trump was recently discovered to be having private conversations with Vladimir Putin and destroying the transcripts afterward. Congress should mandate that all of Trump's conversations with Putin be reviewable by intelligence agencies and Congress.
