As Americans react to the the slow and steady revelations about President Donald Trump's potential collusion with Russia, one question remains -- what does Russia think about all of it?


"How does someone like Russia react to this constant drip, drip, drip of investigation drama," MSNBC's Katy Tur asked her assembled panel on Tuesday's episode of "Meet the Press."

"I think they're delighted," Danielle Pletka of the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank responded.

Though they're thrilled when "someone like Trump" wins elections they meddle in, Pletka argued that he wasn't their endgame in the U.S. or other places like Eastern Europe and France.

"Russia's main game is not to try on put somebody in power," she said. "Their main game is destabilizing...causing us to us question our very system, to question the foundations of democratic governance."

While "the Russians are laughing all the way to the bank," Pletka concluded, America's allies worry Trump is "distracted" or "that he's gonna do something unhinged."
