Dem Rep Speier: ‘Unholy Alliance’ Between Trump and Russia

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) stated that there is an “unholy alliance” between Trump and the Russians and “a suggestion that this relationship that the president and those around him have with Russia, has created an absolutely unacceptable environment, in which we as a country are doing business with all the other countries around the world.”

Host Chris Matthews asked Speier, “What the hell is Kushner up to? What’s Flynn up to? what’s trump up to with the Russians? What were they doing?”

She answered, “There is an unholy alliance, in my mind. The fact that Jared Kushner wanted a secret means by which to communicate with Russia. He is meeting with Gorkov, who is a banker that’s had sanctions on him since 2014. He’s got real estate dealings in New York, where he’s got a piece of property that’s underwater. I mean, all of this is really, I think, a suggestion that this relationship that the president and those around him have with Russia, has created an absolutely unacceptable environment, in which we as a country are doing business with all the other countries around the world.”
