Quote of the Day

Reporting since the election has made clear that Trump and his top advisors have little or no interest in learning about the Russian covert operation against American democracy.  Trump himself repeatedly called the whole thing a hoax -- and at the same time, blamed Obama for not doing anything about it ... But there is one area where Trump's team seems to have been intently interested: rolling back U.S. sanctions against Russia ... And as soon as the Trump team took control of the State Department, it started working on a plan to lift sanctions and return to Russia two compounds in Maryland and New York that the Obama administration had confiscated because they were bases for espionage.

-- Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened, p. 358
