Trump to meet with members of Congress after Putin summit criticism

President Donald Trump will meet with members of Congress on Tuesday, the White House said, after many lawmakers criticized his performance at a summit on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The White House did not say who would attend the meeting or its subject. It is the only event on Trump’s schedule for Tuesday.

Key Points
  • Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his 2016 campaign and Russia.
  • Against that backdrop, comments that Republican Sen. Ben Sasse called “bizarre” make sense: Trump spoke most emphatically in discrediting the Mueller investigation.
  • Former CIA Director John Brennan condemned Trump’s words as “nothing short of treasonous.” Others, in less provocative terms, joined in harsh denunciations.
