Translator Ronald Reagan endorsed the decision of the court on the record interpreter trump
A former translator of U.S. President Ronald Reagan Dimitri Zarechnak stated RIA Novosti that he supports the decision of the American court, which refused to publish the record of an American translator from the meeting of the presidents of Donald trump and Vladimir Putin.
"It is clear that I this decision I fully support, not only and not so much because of its conformity with the law, and for the reasons... (that) if an interpreter you can call the Congress or to disclose his notes of the meeting which the foreign worker will want to meet with the President... And, moreover, why even the President himself or others the U.S. government to use the services of private service providers, if there is a danger that they can be caused by then in Congress? Better in this case to rely on an interpreter the other hand, which cannot be called to testify to our Congress," said the Agency Zarechnak.
A Federal judge Trevor McFadden last week ruled that the records of the American translator of the meeting, trump and Putin does not have the status of Federal documents, because the plaintiffs in the face of two non-governmental organizations cannot require the state Department to publish them.
We are talking about the meeting of the presidents on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Hamburg in 2017. The Washington Post claimed that trump personally selected the outline of the meeting the translator of the state Department Yuri Shkarova. Non-governmental organizations demanded to make public the records on the background of rumors about "Russian ties" trump.
Dimitri Zarechnak worked for several years with Ronald Reagan, U.S. President in 1981-1989 years. In particular, Zarechnak translated Ronald Reagan at the historic summit with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik in 1986. This meeting is believed to have been key to the reduction of strategic weapons the two countries and end the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union.
