I saw Jon Huntsman Jr. on a recent news clip with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and I noticed that Huntsman is serving as the current ambassador to Russia. Huntsman is too good for that job. He is a principled public servant who served his state exceptionally well. What must be going through his mind when he thinks about the many Russians in contact with Donald Trump’s people, before and after the 2016 election? And now it is revealed that there were perhaps a dozen Russians (with ties to Vladimir Putin) who attended Trump’s presidential inauguration and balls. Why were they invited, and not more Utahns?

If you think there was no possibility of collusion, then the safe, dark, self-deceiving sanctuary of sand is where you must have your head.
