Trump to meet with Russian foreign minister Tuesday

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)

President Donald Trump is planning to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday in Washington, an encounter that is sure to draw significant scrutiny amid several ongoing controversies involving Trump and Russia.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told CNN on Monday that the two plan to meet. The White House has not yet confirmed the meeting to CNN, and the State Department announced in a written statement Sunday that Lavrov will travel to Washington this week for meetings with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to "discuss a broad range of regional and bilateral issues."

Lavrov's last official visit to Washington in May 2017 was notable because Trump reportedly shared highly classified information in the Oval Office with the foreign minister and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak.

This week's meeting will take place amid the backdrop of Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, which centers on whether Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine -- at a time when it has been fighting Russian aggression -- in exchange for political dirt to aid his reelection bid. And on Monday, a highly anticipated report into the early days of the Russia investigation is set to be released.

1. We'll, it's been awhile since his last performance review

Now that he's getting himself impeached, he may need to give up the rest of the codes.

2. Oh really? To get his latest marching orders from the Kremlin? Or, like the original poster ...

said, to get a bonus turkey? More than likely, it's probably to deliver the latest Kremlin demands from Putin to rump, or else!

The 'or else' will probably include demands for services in throwing off election results in the upcoming 2020 elections so rump will win again.

Of course, rump won't allow anyone around to monitor the latest Russian/Putin demands, being that this wouldn't be 'American' but of course traitor tot rump won't care.

4. It's so bold and 'in your face' that it's breathtaking

Right out in the open. The Russians know 'their guy' will take the meeting and we can only imagine what will be discussed. Plans for electioneering 2020? Any other parts of Ukraine to give up, what about the rest of Eastern Europe?

Just wow is all I can say.....

7. Awwww...

Is Putin playing hard to get now? Is this love by proxy?

Duz Trump has sadz

Personally, I think that being seen with Trump these days just isn't good for anyone's PR, especially with that "IMPEACH ME!" sign taped to his back. Holding back the laughter would be difficult for anyone.

Oh, maybe I wasn't supposed to reveal that?

10. Will any staff be allowed to attend to record what is being said?

Lavrov will probably update Trump on the 2020 election interference planned by Russia and give him marching orders from Putin.
