Congressman Cleaver’s Statement Regarding Leaks of Classified Information

Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) - “This report that President Trump may have provided highly classified information to senior Russian officials is beyond disturbing. Congress must immediately be briefed on what, if anything, was provided to Russian senior officials, and whether it could impact the national security interest of the United States. Additionally, the seriousness of these allegations cannot be understated. It’s past time for an independent commission.”
