A host on Russian state TV commented this week that President Donald Trump “smells like an agent of the Kremlin.”
The remarks were made on the Russian program 60 Minutes following Trump’s summit and press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“It is very bizarre, you can’t bash your own country like that – especially when you’re the president,” one host noted, according to a transcript provided by Russian media analyst Julia Davis.
Co-host Olga Skabeeva added: “When Trump says our relations are bad because of American foolishness and stupidity, he really smells like an agent of the Kremlin.”

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.
Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
Trump says if GOP paid for Steele dossier ‘there’d be hell to pay’ — Republicans paid for half of it
President Donald Trump tweeted out once again that he doesn't know the difference between a man hired to do opposition research and an entire country intruding on an election to sway the result.
In a Sunday Twitter rant, Trump proclaimed that if Republicans had done something like that, "there'd be hell to pay."
......If Republicans ever did that to the Democrats, there would be all hell to pay. It would be a scandal like no other!

Donald Trump: ‘I’m actually a very honest guy’
During an interview with ABC News that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump said that he resented former special counsel Robert Mueller's report because it didn't tell "the truth" and he is an "honest guy"... but also said that he would not have a problem with accepting dirt on a political opponent from a foreign power.
The comments about Trump being an "honest guy" occurred when the president segued to the topic of the Mueller report after an unrelated question about polling in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
