    The Post noted that the investigation also includes “suspicious financial activity” involving “Russian operatives.” The New York Times was more specific in its account, saying that Mueller is looking at whether Trump associates laundered financial payoffs from Russian officials by channelling them through offshore accounts.

    Well, of course. Why else would the Donald be worried?

    No Russian politician would be stupid enough to try to co-opt an idiot like Trump into some government conspiracy. On the other hand a bit of money laundering ???

    Putin is intelligent, possibly a bit impulsive, but people seem to forget he is an experienced intelligence officer with foreign service experience and a fairly long and successful political career. And he has a highly experienced civil service to support him. He makes Trump look like the totally incompetent new-comer that he is.
