While the left is up in arms about potential meetings with Putin, take a look at this. Chuck Schumer meets with Vladimir Putin.
The picture above was taken in 2003 as Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil.
The hysteria over Trump administration officials talking — or not talking — with Russia needs to end.
It’s getting in the way of putting America back on track.
In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan.
The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:

Schumer also said that day:
“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politics.”
Chuck Schumer Meets with Vladimir Putin
It looks like Putin and Schumer are very friendly that day. While the left creams the right for any contact with Putin, more and more communications between the left and Putin are being uncovered. They may need to change their narrative when it comes down to attacking the Conservatives.
