That Daily Beast article is fascinating. Thanks for posting the link - I wouldn't have come across it otherwise.

It's always fascinating to see things from other people's perspectives and what sort of articles and things they find interesting and important. I've been following the whole Trump/Putin saga, but most of my news sources are UK-based. It's interesting to look at articles and perspectives from those who these revelations directly affect, if that makes any sense (it's late and I'm sleep deprived, so it probably doesn't make as much sense as I'd like. HA!).
