    The lede:

    The State Department official in charge of U.S. arms control negotiations with Moscow and her husband had a years-long friendship with GOP operative Paul Erickson, the former boyfriend of convicted unregistered Russian agent Maria Butina — ties this official did not disclose to her superiors or to Congress during her confirmation process in the spring of 2018.

    Luckily Donald has assured us his campaign had zero contact with Russia. We know we can believe him ... why would he lie about that?

    Was she asked about her friendship with a person who was neither Russian nor a Russian agent? Should she have thought that it was relevant that she was friends with someone that was not either Russian or a Russian agent? ? If so why?

    In early 2018, when she was confirmed, this wasn’t so much of a concern. But when Butina was indicted, it might’ve looked better if she went to a superior and said, “You know that Butina woman on the TV? yeah, my husband and I know her! ‘Small world’ or what!?”
