A Faint Whiff of Gunpowder

I was a bit too wrapped up in Westerosi politics last night to pay much attention to American ones, but boy, does this seem significant:

The Trump Organization was pursuing the plan in late 2015 and early 2016, according to several people familiar with the proposal and new records reviewed by the company's lawyers. As part of the discussions, a Russian-born real estate developer urged Donald Trump to come to Moscow to tout the proposal and suggested he could get President Vladimir Putin to say “great things” about Trump, according to several people who have been briefed on his correspondence.

And here it is in black and white (thanks, @Sativa888):

Isn't that basically everything in three sentences?

I still don't think the Republicans are going to do much about this until after the 2018 midterms, but I think at the very least, the Dems should hold mock televised Watergate-style hearings before 2017 is over.

Just damning.
