The news just keeps getting "worser and worser" for Team Trump. The question now is how many people in the White House are going to end up in prison for high crimes and misdemeanors and treason. By the way, I remember Nixon saying the Watergate investigation was a "witch hunt" back in 1973, just like Trump is now. History is repeating itself! Trump's trash talk will not make his big, big, big, (and getting bigger every day!) Russia problem go away. I'm starting to read that Vice President Mike Pence may have a Russia problem too. More will be revealed. Hey, and what's the real story with Congressman Chaffetz (R-UT), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, having a midlife crisis and deciding to resign June 30. There's more than a "midlife" crisis to this story. Stay tuned! Now, to the Reuters story:

Reuters yesterday (05/18/17) reported in a story written by Ned Parker, Jonathan Landay & Warren Strobel that the Trump Campaign Had at Least 18 undisclosed Contacts with Russian Sources:

"Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.

The previously undisclosed interactions form part of the record now being reviewed by FBI and congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Six of the previously undisclosed contacts described to Reuters were phone calls between Sergei Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the United States, and Trump advisers, including Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, three current and former officials said.

Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations, four current U.S. officials said."
