    Donald Trump is under growing pressure at home as leading Democrats call for an independent investigation into White House conduct.

    This follows reports that the US president gave Russian officials classified information during a visit to Washington, DC.

    Russia's President Vladimir Putin has dismissed the claims, saying the US suffers from political schizophrenia.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington, DC.
