Politico reported Thursday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee blocked Democrats from issuing a subpoena to the interpreter, who President Trump brought with him to his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
According to a State Department official, Democratic Representatives Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell were the ones to make the motion to subpoena Trump’s interpreter, Marina Gross, to testify behind closed doors. The motion was made Thursday morning at a hearing entitled “China’s threat to American government and private sector research and innovation leadership.”
No, I'm saying what's the point of a secret meeting if it's not secret?
maybe they don't have proper clearances

The double standards at work in the GOP and indeed in the Republican base during this Presidency, have been nothing short of epic in scale.
Whether its the FBI, or the CIA, or the NSA, or the director of intelligence, all these figures and institutions which REMAIN right wing by their very nature, being as they are designed to uphold the capitalistic and corporatist endeavours of the United States, as well as provide some limited security to the people as an afterthought, are being accused of this, that or the other, simply because a personality cult and a far right movement has appeared in government.
The day where anyone could ever say of ANY of the intelligence and security institutions in the United States, that relative to the leader of the nation, they are moderate in their outlook, should NEVER have come. America is a nation beset by fools at present, and I only hope they remove themselves from the picture by way of Darwinian action, before they do more damage. For the rest of your countrymen, all I can say is that the world stands in solidarity with the sensible, compassionate and decent people in your country, and hope that you all survive this unutterable garbage fire of a Presidency.

Are you implying that Trump could have been discussiong sensitive and classified information with Putin? You don't see anything wrong with this picture?
