CABINET/NATIONAL SECURITY/RUSSIA/TRUMP PEOPLE/MICHAEL FLYNN: “President Donald Trump’s personal counsel, Michael Cohen, hand-delivered a ‘peace’ plan for Russia and Ukraine to former national security adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign, the New York Times reported on Sunday.
The plan involved lifting sanctions on Russia in return for Moscow withdrawing its support for pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine. It would also allow Russia to maintain control over Crimea, which it annexed in 2014.
Trump has suggested he would be open to lifting sanctions on Russia if Moscow proved a useful ally in fighting terrorism.”
