It was another bad week for Trump. We now know Trump lied about his Russia ties, and Mueller’s investigation is closing in and has reached Trump’s children. With so much Russia-related news, it’s hard to keep up. Here are the top 6 revelations to know:


  1. TRUMP’S LIES: Time and again Trump told the American people that his business had nothing to do with Russia, but discussions on Trump Tower Moscow went on at least until June 2016 — and Trump was briefed on it.


  1. IN TALKS WITH THE KREMLIN: Cohen admitted in court that he was in direct contact with the Kremlin about Trump Tower Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign. What was the extent of their involvement?

  1. REPUBLICANS’ FAILED OVERSIGHT: In their report on Russian interference, House Intelligence Committee Republicans accepted Cohen and Sater’s lies, concluding that no “element of the Russian government was actually directly involved” in Trump Tower Moscow.
