Trump Bars U.S. Press, Not Russia’s, at Russian Meeting

Doesn't this raise ANY alarm bells with the American public? The press in this country, ALL of them (even Breitbart), were blocked from the White House... and a mostly state-run Russian press was permitted.

The anti-Communists from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s would be demanding that the sitting President be impeached for showing such favoritism to Russia. But... well, it's Trump! It's okay!

The lawyers who wrote a letter saying President Trump had no significant business ties to Russia work for a law firm that has extensive ties to Russia and received a “Russia Law Firm of the Year” award in 2016.

Sheri Dillon and William Nelson, tax partners at the law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, which has served as tax counsel to Trump and the Trump Organization since 2005, wrote a letter in March released by the White House on Friday stating that a review of the last 10 years of Trump’s tax returns “do not reflect” ties to Russia “with a few exceptions.”

In 2016, however, Chambers & Partners, a London-based legal research publication, named the firm “Russia Law Firm of the Year” at its annual awards dinner. The firm celebrated the “prestigious honor” in a press release on its website, noting that the award is “the latest honor for the high-profile work performed by the lawyers in Morgan Lewis’ Moscow office.”

According to the firm’s website, its Moscow office includes more than 40 lawyers and staff who are “well known in the Russian market, and have a deep familiarity with the local legislation, practices, and key players.” The firm boasts of being “particularly adept” at advising clients on “sanction matters."

Following the release of the letter, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn) noted the firm’s connection to Russia, calling it “unreal."



Remember, though, Trump himself has stated he has no connection to Russia, to Putin... and has been proved wrong time and again, from the Russian criminals in Trump Tower to past gifts from Putin.
