Schumer to Trump: Cancel Russia summit

(Talking Points Memo) Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Friday called on President Donald Trump to back out of his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin after indictments were handed down charging 12 Russian intelligence officials with hacking various computers, including those at the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC, to meddle in the 2016 election.

“These indictments are further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win,” Schumer said in his statement.
