Trump Seized Interpreter’s Notes, Took Other Actions To Conceal Putin Talks

Records of at least five interactions between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia President Vladimir Putin over the past two years simply do not exist due to Trump’s efforts to conceal what the two leaders have said to each other during that time.

Reporting from the Washington Post on Saturday evening described the president taking great lengths in order to hide his conversations with his Russian counterpart.

In one of those instances, Trump physically removed the notes of the interpreter who was in the room with him, and told that individual not to discuss him doing so to any other officials in the administration, the Washington Post reported, citing both current and former anonymous U.S. officials.

The missing documented interactions between Putin and Trump, which are known to have occurred, are not even recorded in classified reports, making it difficult for anyone else besides Trump to know what was said between the two.
