The New York Times reported that White House aides had delivered a sealed proposal to Flynn's office shortly before he has to step down, outlining a way for President Trump to lift sanctions against Russian Federation.
When Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Munich and Brussels over the weekend, many foreign leaders were hoping he would provide them with some clarity on President Donald Trump's stance on various global issues.
During a recent phone call, Trump trashed a treaty that capped the number of nuclear warheads each country could deploy - a deal Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he supported during a Senate confirmation hearing. While Trump can not yet be directly linked to Russian Federation, his noticeable "soft spot" for Putin and the country is more than a little disconcerting.
Team Trump has come under scrutiny over what some critics say is a too-rosy relationship with Russian Federation.
"It's a bit weird that you've been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than you have been to Meryl Streep", Oliver said.
The show, which has been known to be usually amusing, had the right mix of entertainment and information on Sunday's episode. "He's genuinely popular there". "The man they want is essentially Richard Dreyfuss but mean", Oliver quipped. Russian politician Ilya Yashin, a critic of Putin, said that thugs climbed onto his vehicle and pooped on the hood. "Not only is that clearly bull shit, but contrived seaside photos ops is the same publicity strategy as Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston". "America and Russian Federation are not the f--ing same".
But, as Oliver noted, "Trump has already given Putin something massive, and he may not have realized it yet".
According to one of the BBC's men on the ground in Moscow, one official told him that he had celebrated Trump's victory past year with champagne and a cigar - but now, as the correspondent notes, "the champagne has gone flat".
Perhaps the meatiest part of the episode was Oliver pointing out the disastrous and sometimes lethal fates Putin's opponents have met. Putin's detractors have alarmingly wound up dead, poisoned, radiated and straight-up shot. One opponent who didn't die are poisoned repeatedly.
Oliver also took a look at the manyPutin critics who have been killed or who have had fake sex tapes made about them. There is so much that people suspect but can not quite prove. We know we did. But here is what we can say about Putin without a doubt: "He, among other things, annexed Crimea, imposed severe fines and long prison terms on protestors, propped up the brutal Assad regime and signed a harsh, anti-gay propaganda law".
That doesn't sound like the best political counterpart to cozy up to. It would be great if we got along. It was a reference to a song that actually exists in Russian Federation, which discussing why many women in the country want to be with a guy like him. Hopefully Trump learns something from Oliver's irresistible tune.
