With the controversy over the Donald Trump administration’s links to Russia refusing to go away, the president attempted to turn the tables on the Democrats.

Trump posted a picture on Twitter showing Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer enjoying a doughnut with Russian president Vladimir Putin – and demanded that he should be investigated.

The image shows Schumer and Putin in New York in 2003, a trip which also saw the Russian premier meet President George W Bush at Camp David.

Trump’s call comes as Attorney General Jeff Sessions stands accused by Democrats of lying under oath for failing to acknowledge meetings with a Russian ambassador when he was asked at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing.

Schumer and others were quick to point out the differences.

Schumer then added another all-important detail.

Trump didn’t stop there – he also wants House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi investigated after a photo emerged which appeared to contradict her statement that she’d never met Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Pelosi, too, responded that the situations were not comparable

One thing’s for sure – the Russia controversy doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon
