Trump and Putin Held a Second, Undisclosed, Private Conversation - The New York Times

Trump and Putin Held a Second, Undisclosed, Private Conversation - The New York Times

WASHINGTON — Hours into a dinner with world leaders who had gathered for the Group of 20 summit meeting, President Trump left his chair at the sprawling banquet table and headed to where President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia was seated.

The two presidents had met earlier in the day for the first time and, as the White House put it, had developed a rapport even as they talked about Russia’s interference in the United States’ 2016 elections.

The July 7 meeting in Hamburg, Germany, was the single most scrutinized of the Trump presidency. But it turned out there was another encounter: a one-on-one discussion over dinner that lasted as long as an hour and relied solely on a Kremlin-provided interpreter.

  1. While the Republican Party shields its President from further prosecution my Republican neighbors and acquaintances expect me to ignore the cyber equivalent of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Were the Japanese "meddling" in US Navy operations in the Pacific? Were the fifteen Saudis meddling in the financial activities of the World Trade Center occupants? It's time we started calling The Russian attack on the election of 2016 what it was and remains, a deliberate attack on the sovereignty of the United States of America. Donald Trump and his family have demonstrated to anyone brighter than a bag of rocks where their loyalty lies. Just where does your neighbor's loyalty reside?
