“The posture of President Trump on Crimea is well known and he stands firmly by it,” Mr. Putin said. “He continues to maintain that it was illegal to annex it, our viewpoint is different.”
This is unbelievably great. Trump didn’t hand over the Crimea! He could have done it so easily but he didn’t! Thanks to Mueller who reoriented his attention towards the stupid indictments and occupied his mind with them to the exclusion of everything else.
We are still not out of the woods because, as I said this morning, we don’t know what was really said in the meeting until we see what happens with Mariupol. But no public statement to the effect that the Crimea is legitimately Russian is a huge freaking deal.
I guess Mueller did serve a good purpose after all. Putin didn’t get the victory that he so covets.
Somebody pinch me because I’m afraid I’m dreaming. This is surely too good to be true.
