The Washington Post reports:

A growing number of Republican and Democratic lawmakers are calling on President Trump to hand over the transcript of the White House meeting last week in which he revealed highly classified information to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador, according to current and former U.S. officials.

“For the purpose of transparency, the White House should share a transcript of the meeting with the House and Senate intelligence committees,” former intelligence officer and freshman Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) tweeted Tuesday morning.
“Our allies and partners must have the utmost confidence that sensitive information they share with us will not be disclosed,” Gallagher wrote.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) made the call on Tuesday morning.
“The White House should make the transcript of @POTUS’ mtg w/ the Russian Foreign Minister & Ambassador available to Intel Cmtes ASAP,” Schumer wrote on Twitter.
“Until the Admin provides the unedited transcript, American ppl will rightly doubt if POTUS can handle our nation’s most closely kept secrets,” he wrote.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who on Monday called the notion of Trump sharing classified information with Russia “appalling,” said Congress should have access to tapes of Trump’s conversations with Comey as well as his meeting with Russian officials.
“All potential Trump tapes should be subpoenaed to uncover truth and preserve evidence — both Comey and meeting with Russians,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) tweeted Monday night.
The requests for more information portend a difficult week for the White House on Capitol Hill, where Republicans are seeking to maintain focus on their legislative agenda, including the negotiation of a Senate health-care bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who on Monday declined to comment on Trump’s disclosures, said Tuesday that he wished the White House would produce “less drama.”
“I think it would be helpful if the president spent more time on things we’re trying to accomplish and less time on other things,” McConnell said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Tuesday.

The pressure is beginning to increase on the President to mount for the nomination of a special prosecutor, turn over tapes, and now release a transcript. As the things heat up the Presidents may have to submit to the pressure.
