The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday that President Donald Trump was “acting like someone who’s compromised” after his one-on-one meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

In comments on ABC News’ “This Week,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., declared “the talks in Helsinki were productive… for Vladimir Putin,” and lashed out at Trump, in his joint news conference with Putin, for siding “with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies.”

Trump later clarified those remarks.

“The reality is we have no idea what this president, our president agreed to” in the two-hourlong meeting, though “the Kremlin intelligence agents know exactly what took place in that meeting,” Schiff said.

“I certainly think he’s acting like someone who’s compromised, and it may very well be that he is compromised or it may very well be that he believes that he’s compromised, that the Russians have information on him,” Schiff added.

“There’s no ignoring the fact that for whatever reason, this president acts like he’s compromised. There is simply no other way to explain why he would side with this Kremlin former KGB officer rather than his own intelligence agencies.”
