Leonard Lopate at Large: Craig Unger

 

Leanord’s conversation today with Craig Unger covers Unger’s new book, “House of Trump, House of Putin.”

A few minutes after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, a man named Vyacheslav Nikonov approached a microphone in the Russian State Duma (their equivalent of the US House of Representatives) and made this very unusual statement: “Dear friends, respected colleagues! …three minutes ago, Hillary Clinton admitted her defeat in US presidential elections, and a second ago Trump started his speech as an elected president of the United States of America, and I congratulate you on this.” Nikonov is a leader in the pro-Putin United Russia Party and, incidentally, the grandson of Vyacheslav Molotov — after whom the ‘Molotov cocktail’ was named. His announcement that day was a clear signal that Trump’s victory was, in fact, a victory for Putin’s Russia. Today, Craig tells Leonard about just how deep President Trump’s Russian connections go.
