It appears that during the 2016 presidential election, Comrade Trump’s son took a meeting with a proxy of Comrade Putin to try to discredit Hillary Clinton and win the White House for the Republicans.
Other attendees at that meeting included Comrade Manafort and Comrade Kushner. All this camaraderie clearly paid off, as Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. It took a village to do the job, in this case a Potemkin village.
Did our Commissar in Chief thank his Russian counterpart for providing him with a red-letter day last November? Did he celebrate his unlikely win with caviar, blinis, and vodka at his apartment in Trump Tower?
I can not answer yes or “nyet” to these questions, but I hope we’ll learn something about Trump’s ties to Mother Russia when Robert Mueller and his investigators finish their special Russia probe.
