Well, ok.

Seriously, this is going to dog his every move until something solid is brought forth to put the whole issue to bed.

President Trump was, once again, faced with questions about his ties to Russia, or those involving his aides and associates.


From The Hill:

“I haven’t called Russia in 10 years,” he told a reporter who asked him whether a special prosecutor should carry out an investigation.

Seconds earlier, he mouthed the word “no” to a gathering of health insurance executives he was meeting with at the White House.

Honestly, just speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin is not a problem. At some point, he has to, given the job.

I think what keeps this topic hot is the fact that he’s spent so much time lauding Putin, calling for a warmer relationship, that it makes more rational thinkers a bit nervous.

Trump and Putin did speak on January 28, by phone. Not out of the ordinary, since Trump had been inaugurated a week earlier.
