The White House on Thursday refused to provide representatives of the Democratic Party in Congress with documents related to the negotiations of US President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

“The requests of the committees [of the House of Representatives] do not provide legal grounds for another branch of government to force the president to disclose details of diplomatic communication with foreign leaders,” the newspaper quoted Pat White Chipollone as counsel for the White House.

In a letter to the request of the head of the Intelligence Special Committee on the House of Representatives, Adam Schiff, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Eliot Engel, and Chairman of the Supervision and Government Reform Committee, Elijah Cummings, he stressed that Congress is not entitled to receive information about the leaders' conversations.

“According to the established law, the responsibility for maintaining international relations lies solely with the executive branch,” said Chipollone. "The president should be able to freely enter into discussions with foreign leaders and not be afraid that these conversations will be opened and used for political purposes. And foreign leaders must also be sure of this," said a spokesman for the US administration.

Earlier, representatives of these three committees sent a request to the White House to provide "all documents and data related to the Putin and Trump talks, including phone calls and face-to-face meetings."

At the moment, at least six committees of the US Congress are conducting their own investigations, one way or another related to the current owner of the White House. These include, among other things, the proceedings regarding whether there was a collusion between the Russian Federation and those from Trump's entourage in order to help the latter win the 2016 elections in the United States. The committees are also investigating whether Trump had any business ties with Moscow, whether he used his presidential powers for personal enrichment, and whether he was trying in any way to prevent investigations against him.

Recall, the ex-director of Trump's communications will transfer to Congress a personal work diary with notes about the president. Congressmen plan to establish whether Trump obstructed justice.

Earlier, the US Federal District Court in Washington extended the investigation of the alleged Russian intervention in the presidential elections in the United States in 2016. During the investigation, the team of Special Prosecutor Muller charged 33 defendants. Among them are the three former assistant presidents of Donald Trump.

Recall, US President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the investigation of Special Prosecutor Robert Muller, regarding Trump's possible conspiracy with Moscow to win the elections in 2016.

Trump himself has repeatedly stated that he could have independently terminated this investigation and disband the Muller team, but did not want to do this. Trump also repeatedly called fakes all the accusations of his electoral team’s connections with Russia.
