During an extensive interview with fellow MSNBC host Joy Reid about President Donald Trump’s recent meet-up in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rachel Maddow warned that the private meeting between the two could result in massive chaos down the line if the Russian’s want to manipulate Trump’s comments made to the Russian leader.
Noting DNI head Dan Coats speculating that it was entirely possible the Russians recorded the meeting, Maddow took it a step further as to what that could mean down the line.
“We don’t know what Trump and Putin talked about in the meeting,” Maddow began. “We don’t know what Trump may have conceded or promised or given away, what he might have told him in terms of U.S. secrets.”
“But because we have to assume the Russians made a recording there, the Russians not only know what happened in that room because Putin was there, but they have a recording that they can manipulate to their desire,” she warned. “So, whatever they want to make it seem like Trump said, whatever they’re going to take to the bank, when they need to say, ‘Hey, listen, the U.S. president gave us permission to do this,’ they’re absolutely free to doctor that tape if they need to.”
“Whatever Trump actually said is probably bad enough,” she smirked, “but whatever they want to make him say, they can retroactively do. And there’s no American rebuttal to it because there were no Americans in that room other than Trump and the translator to keep him honest.”

July 4 re-opening still on after employee at private sports club owned by billionaire governor tests positive for coronavirus
After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.
Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
"While the events of the past few days certainly have thrown us a curve ball, we have reached out to our friends and colleagues in the area to pull together a festival that will have something for everyone," the director of operations at the sporting club, Allen Wills, told its 400 members in a Tuesday night email, obtained by ProPublica.
