WASHINGTON - Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday urged the White House to immediately release transcripts of U.S. President Donald Trump's May 10 meeting with Russian officials to the relevant lawmakers probing alleged interference by Russia in the 2016 US election.

"Given the gravity of the matter, we need to be able to quickly assess whether or not this report is true and what exactly was said," Schumer said, speaking on the Senate floor amid reports that Trump disclosed intelligence information to senior Russian officials last week. "Producing the transcripts is the only way for this Administration to categorically prove the reports untrue."
