Russia Clarifies Trump Connection

Russia Clarifies Trump Connection

(Moscow)

One of the new elements of the current public outcry and the probe in the White House's connection to Russia is an email that a senior member of Trump's company sent to the Kremlin asking for help with a business deal in early 2016. The administration has been tight-lipped about the contact, but Moscow went on the record saying that it did receive the email but never responded, as it was sent to a general email address where business inquiries are ignored.

FINSUM : If you look into how this email was handled it ironically seems to point out that Trump had no Russian connections, as the email was sent to a general inquiries address and not to any specific individual. Hardly a smoking gun.
