Wisconsin Republicans want answers about Trump meeting

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans from Wisconsin are calling for President Donald Trump to report to Congress about what he said during a private meeting with Russian officials last week.

Trump on Tuesday defended his right to share ``facts pertaining to terrorism'' and airline safety with Russia. Trump's tweets did not say whether he revealed classified information about the Islamic State group.

Ryan spokesman Doug Andres says Ryan ``hopes for a full explanation of the facts from the administration.'' 

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher is a former Marine counter-intelligence officer. He says regardless of what was shared ``it's dangerous to believe that Russia can be a reliable counterterrorism partner.''

A spokeswoman for Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner says Trump should fully brief Congress on what was said and why.
