All those contacts

More and more in the Trump administration seem to have been seeing or calling Russians. According to various media, ambassadors routinely meet with elected U.S. officials. Fine by me.

But we’re talking about meetings and contacts and calls, between people who were not yet elected. Some of the meetings were paid for by the Russians, like chats or visits to Russia. Many of the contacts took place over years, but intensified suddenly during and summer 2016.

No problem, if ambassadors and others are meeting with the elect representatives. But summer 2016, that would have been the Obama administration. Furthermore, according to the Washington Post as well as plenty other media, the extend of meetings and contacts remains unknown.

President Trump may try to deflect attention from this and other worrying issues, by tweeting the preceding President had Trump buildings bugged – by now, who buys into anything this US administration tweets or states?

They have proven they prefer and create alternatives facts and fake news.
