Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on Senior Trump Officials Meeting with Russians

Jul 11, 2017

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement after reports that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort met with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer they believed would provide compromising information about Hillary Clinton, after having been informed that the material was part of a Russian government effort to influence the election. 

"With every day that passes, and with every new revelation, it seems the story about Russia coming from this Administration changes. We need the truth. And every day we don't get the truth is one more day the Administration is going back on its promise to create jobs for our people, end the opioid epidemic, increase access to affordable health care, and put money back into the pockets of American families. The American people are still waiting for things to get better for them, and Donald Trump is failing to deliver."
