Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he would not put any trust in Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to turn over notes from the meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian officials.
"I wouldn't put much credibility into whatever Putin's notes are, and if it comes in an email, I wouldn't click on the attachment, that's for sure," he told Fox News.
Putin had offered to turn over to Congress records of the meeting in which Trump is said to have disclosed classified information, Time magazine reported.
Rubio cautioned against rushing to judgment on the issue.
"But before we form opinions and advocate for action, we need to know what the facts are," he said.
"I spoke to one of the people who was in that meeting and they vehemently and repeatedly denied that the president said or did anything that would have compromised the U.S. intelligence, its sources, its methods or its intelligence relationships around the world."
However, he said Congress should review the White House notes of the meeting.
"There are no transcripts of the meeting apparently," he said. "There are notes. I would imagine that at some point, fairly soon, the White House should make those notes available to the appropriate committees."
