Seth Meyers calls Trump’s Russia scandal a ‘pivotal moment for our democracy’

On Monday’s Late Night, Seth Meyers took a “Closer Look” at the latest Trump scandal to rock Washington. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump revealed classified intelligence to Russian ambassadors during their Oval Office visit last week.

“We’re at a point now in the Trump presidency that feels very much like a pivotal moment for our democracy,” Meyers said. “An increasingly authoritarian President relying on a small circle of loyalists abusing his power, and on top of that, just before we started taping, The Washington Post reported that Trump revealed classified information to Russian diplomats.”

During the meeting, Trump would not allow American reporters into the room, but let Russian photographers take photos, which they later leaked. “Now I know why the Russians are smiling in that picture. Look at them!” Meyers remarked, showing one of the photos. “They must have been like, ‘Can you believe how easy this is? I can’t believe it! We did not even ask for it, just gives.’”

Getting serious though, Meyers called on Congress to act. “Our democracy only works if both parties choose to exercise the checks on presidential power that our Constitution prescribes. Republicans can’t just abdicate their responsibility.”
