Lakewood, Colo. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement in reaction to news reports that President Trump revealed classified information to Russian officials during a recent meeting:

“President Trump and his surrogates’ cozy relationship with Russian officials has always been concerning but his alleged sharing of sensitive and classified information with Russian officials is alarming and constitutes a serious national security risk. The Trump Administration’s erratic and dysfunctional nature plus a lack of transparency when it comes to their Russian ties is jeopardizing our security and democracy. Now more than ever, we need an independent investigation.”
