    First of all, I doubt Trump had anything to do with whatever the inaugural committee did. In any case, there is no indication...not from your first article, nor from your second article...that the Ukrainians paid anything in order to attend.

    That whole notion appears to be coming only from you.

    You're just kidding yourself. Mueller is not wasting his time on nothingburgers. And Trump controlled everything around the inauguration. He is big on control.

    Mueller Eyes Ukrainians Who Attended Trump Inauguration

    The special counsel is looking at how a number of Ukrainian politicians secured seats at the Trump inauguration, the New York Times reported Thursday.


    The report comes amid indications that probes into the Trump inauguration — and what it did with the record $107 million it raised — are heating up. At the same time, peace plans that various Ukrainians were ferrying to Washington have also become a focus of the investigation.
    ===========================================
    People attending the inaugural paid a record $107M. No one got in free. And there is no accounting known for where that money went.

    Anyone who remains dismissive of ALL of the Russian/Putin connections to the Trump campaign/administration...after all that has been revealed over the last few years (including the election campaign)...is, honestly, worthy of having his/her patriotism and/or psychological status questioned.

    No joke.

    But, it's also worth remembering that 80% of all conservatives still supported Nixon (and expressed disbelief about the Watergate scandal), right up until 2 weeks before his resignation. So, this sort of delusionalism is just part of the conservative mentality. It's hardwired in the rightwing brain.
