    Default Trump and Putin: Waiting for a sun rise.

    Trump and Putin will have a secret meeting. No one will be allowed to know what they have discussed...except two translators.

    What do you think the odds are that neither translator will live to see the sun come up after the meeting?

    Oh, I think the odds are very good for their survival.

    Killing them both would be too obvious.

    OTOH, if they both caught the same flight, afterwards . . .

    In any case, who will be the translators? Who will provide them?

    My guess is that they will both be Russian.

    It really would be hard to act more suspicious than Trump, eh?

    I'm very, very sure Mr Putin has a couple of translators he can rely on 100% to never breathe a word. The guy's nothing if not professional.

    The only one in the room who needs a translator is Trump.

    Which means that Putin can claim SFB said anything at all.

    He can claim that Donald SFB Trump offered him the position of US Secretary of State, and no-one could claim otherwise.

    The real reason trump will meet with Putin alone:

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

    I would hope that Trump's translator is an American who can verify what Putin actually said.

    You mean you don't know that yet?

    Donald may not think he needs one, or does not want any witnesses.
