By the time the 2020 election rolled around, there were few reputable lawyers willing to work with Donald Trump. So he had to rely on Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell. To say that it went badly for all of them would be an understatement.
For 4 years, Donald Trump refused to respond to provocative actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In fact, Trump seemed to do nothing but praise the Russian leader.
Joe Biden, however, will be taking a much different tack with Putin. Biden has famously called the Russian President a killer and told him that, “he has no soul.”
He is of interest to Mueller because of his ties to the Kremlin and his decade-long relationship with Paul Manafort, the one-time campaign chairman for U.S. President Donald Trump, who this month was sentenced to a total of seven and a half years in prison in two criminal cases brought by Mueller's team.
K.T. McFarland's statement revised an earlier assertion to FBI agents that sanctions on Russia did not come up when she spoke to Flynn in December 2016 about his calls with Sergey Kislyak when he was the Russian ambassador to the United States, the newspaper said, quoting unidentified people familiar with the matter.
The move by the Senate comes as the White House has repeatedly suggested they would "look at" lifting sanctions on Russia.
Regardless of the motivations behind the latest Trump move, it's clear the Russians are getting exactly what they had hoped for by helping this president win the White House in 2016.
It's deeply disturbing that the administration, which sees nothing wrong with Flynn's conduct, is in charge of holding him accountable for it.
Trump has been silent on Russia since taking office, but he could be days away from dropping the crippling sanctions President Obama put on the country.
