The World Around You Episode 13: The Trump Administration’s Russian Contacts


Brennan Theler

Today, we talk about the recently uncovered and deeply disturbing ties of key members of Trump’s administration to Russia. These contacts include business and governmental ties, and include possible perjury to cover them up. Additionally, the members involved reach as high as Cabinet-level officers. As of the beginning of March, those currently implicated include:

Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor,

Jeff Sessions III, Attorney General,

Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer,

along with several aides to both the specific people named and to the Trump campaign in general.

We discuss how these came to light and the consequences of such ties. Spoiler alert– it’s not pretty.
