Donald Trump, clearly rattled by investigations into his administration’s contacts with Russia and the U.S. election, lashed out at Senator Chuck Schumer, who yesterday called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign for lying under oath about his conversation with the Russian ambassador.
Trump tweeted a photo of Schumer with Putin, writing: “We should start an immediate investigation into
@SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!”

And Chuck Schumer tweeted back: “Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in ’03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team?”
