From Russia, with Love
The New York Times this weekend reported that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Kremlin-tied Russian lawyer in June 2016 on the promise that the lawyer had damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Ironically, the woman "stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs. Clinton," Trump Jr. said in a statement to the Times, but he says it became clear she didn't have evidence, and instead wanted to talk about allowing Americans to adopt Russian children.

The new code, 986, will start being assigned to people in September. (CDA PRESS)
