Connecting the dots to the dolt in the White House

Putin Loyalists Are Invading Washington

  • Putin ally’s gun-lobby membership opened doors to Trump family
  • ‘We can’t miss this chance to make up’: former Kremlin staffer
President Donald Trump’s fans in Moscow are fanning out across Washington, determined to salvage the rapprochement he promised despite a widening barrage of probes into the billionaire’s ties to Russia.
As the Kremlin waits impatiently for signs Trump will follow through on campaign pledges to improve relations, a growing number of the property tycoon’s Russian admirers -- including two who’ve worked on Vladimir Putin’s staff -- are pursuing what they’re calling a “private” reconciliation.
This includes the attendance of a dozen Putin loyalists at the exclusive National Prayer Breakfast and a private dinner with Republican congressmen that was sponsored by a Rockefeller oil heir -- unofficial efforts to build backchannels to Trump that have, of course, the unofficial blessing of officials in Moscow.
“We can’t miss this chance to make up,” said Sergei Shakhov, a former Kremlin staffer who attended the Feb. 2 prayer breakfast, a networking forum for U.S. political and business leaders. Trump spoke at the event, upholding a presidential tradition that dates back to Dwight D. Eisenhower.
