Reed, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said a "stunning indictment" announced Friday against a dozen Russians for election-related offenses should precipitate calling off Trump's summit.
The charges are part of the ongoing special counsel probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
The charges come as special counsel Robert Mueller investigates potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election. They also allegedly hacked into the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in an operation starting around March 2016.

"And he replied 'Because of the Mueller investigation.' No Mr. President, the reason why relations with Russian Federation are hard is because Russian Federation and its agents interfered dramatically in the 2016 elections".
Other Democrats joining the call to jettison the meeting included Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT and Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
