Meh. I'm no fan of Trump, but doesn't seem unreasonable to me that an incoming National Security Advisor might reach out to figures in the administrations of other significant powers.
Well it's illegal.
Well, lying to the FBI is illegal, but that's not the same thing.
And this isn't over. They're saying Kushner is going down next.

Trump slams Bannon over book, says ex-aide 'lost his mind'

According to The Guardian, Bannon described a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic."

Bannon also told Wolff that the investigations into potential collusion between Russia and Trump campaign officials would likely focus on money laundering.

"They're going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV," The Guardian quoted Bannon as saying.

Michael Cohen claims Trump 'knew of Russian lawyer meeting'

President Donald Trump's former lawyer has said his client knew in advance of a June 2016 meeting between his aides and a Russian delegation that offered to help his campaign, US media report.

Michael Cohen says he was present when Mr Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, informed his father of the meeting.

He is reportedly willing to state this to the special counsel investigation into alleged Russian election meddling.

What's unclear is whether Michael Cohen has anything to corroborate his claim. That's led President Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani to launch a scathing attack on Mr Cohen's character, describing him as a "pathological liar".

Of course that would mean that Trump had a "pathological liar" as his house Counsel for about a decade!

I, for one, could never believe that a requirement for admission to law school would be a willingness to lie as convenient. But shit happens.

True, true. "sleazy real estate developer" is an oxymoron.
