Pompeo is being sued for records of Trump’s meetings with Putin. A judge will hear the case.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is being sued over allegedly failing to preserve official notes about President Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and a court ruled on Wednesday that the case could move forward.

That means Pompeo must either provide evidence he complied with the Federal Records Act, which requires the State Department to collect and preserve interpreter notes, or else argue that he is not obligated to do so.

Judge Trevor McFadden, a Trump-appointed judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, rejected the government’s efforts to dismiss the case on Wednesday.
