His administration under fire over Russian contacts, President Trump shot back at Democrats on Friday by posting an old photo of Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) having a doughnut and coffee with Russian President Vladimir Putin, labeling the senator a "total hypocrite" and somewhat jokingly calling for an investigation.
Above the smiling photo-op, Trump wrote: "We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!"
Trump, who rarely passes up an opportunity to punch back when under attack, was responding to Democrats' calls for an investigation into Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions' failure to tell Congress under oath about two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
