In light of Trump repetition of Putin false talking points on Ukraine, worth recalling the evening Trump and @TuckerCarlson swapped Putin false talking points on Montenegro realclearpolitics.com/video/2018/07/…
@TuckerCarlson Montenegro obviously was not "aggressive" in the sense that it might attack anybody. But in 2017-2018 at EU behest Montenegro *was* aggressively cracking down on money laundering and tax evasion ... inconveniencing Russians who parked and moved money through the Adriatic state
@TuckerCarlson You might imagine that elite Russian unhappiness at Montenegrin bank regulations would be too obscure a subject for a prime-time American news host interviewing the president. You would be wrong.
@TuckerCarlson Trump/Carlson irritation at Montenegro's clean-up effort vs dirty Russian money also gives lie to (absurd) claim that Trump's interest in Ukraine was motivated by concern to fight corruption. Trump fights on behalf of the corrupt, not against the corrupt.
