Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has some advice for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo regarding Russia: election influence is unacceptable.

During a speech on the Senate floor Monday, Schumer discussed Pompeo's planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week and said it's time to make America's stance on Russia's meddling in the 2016 US. election clear.

"The Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has an obligation to warn President Putin that any action to interfere in our elections will be met with an immediate and robust response," Schumer said.

"Secretary of State Pompeo must make clear that the cost of trying to interfere with American elections will be dear. Secretary of State Pompeo must deliver a shot across the bow to Putin and any other foreign adversary that would dare think about trying to influence our elections."

Schumer added, "Anything less from Secretary Pompeo will be a failure of diplomacy."

The Mueller report accused Russia of trying to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election through disinformation campaigns and computer hacks. Putin has denied Russia did anything of the sort.
