They may not call themselves "commies" anymore but Putin is KGB and his government and his cronies are running everything over there.  Those who disagree turn up poisoned, in prison and/or dead.  Putin wants to get the old gang of the Eastern Bloc countries back together again.  Same as it was with Stalin.

As Donny might put it, Putin is a bad dude, but he is no longer a

communist, and the Communist Party of Russia is in opposition

to him. So "red bait" is a misnomer to me. I give Uncle Joe a break

when it comes to Eastern Europe as Germany had invaded Russia

twice in twenty five years through eastern Europe.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

How do you "red bait" someone when the commies are no longer

in control in Russia?

"Special Report: Russian elite invested nearly $100 million in Trump buildings, records show...

 

“I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia,” President Trump said at a news conference last month. “I have no loans in Russia. I don’t have any deals in Russia."

 

But in the United States, members of the Russian elite have invested in Trump buildings. A Reuters review has found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida, according to public documents, interviews and corporate records....

Trump himself may not "own" anything or have any deals, but does the Trump Organization or any of the many "companies" with which he is affiliated?

He has put together a cabaret act in case he gets toppled from power. He might have to play the clubs in Siberia.

He may be the richest man in the world, so he will probably retire to Monaco or Mar-a-Lago.

"Former Independent presidential candidate and former CIA operations officer Evan McMullin rolled out an ad today to pressure Congressional Republicans to name a bipartisan select committee to investigate Donald Trump’s Russia crisis.

The ad that went live Tuesday with a six-figure TV buy ends,

 

“Generations fought for freedom, and presidents of both parties stood against foreign tyrants like Vladimir Putin. Why won’t Donald Trump tell Congress to name a bipartisan select committee to get the truth?”

“Trump’s Russia crisis. Secret contacts. Conflicting stories. Mounting signs of hidden ties and shady deals. Fear our president is compromised,” the narrator says in an ominous tone.

“The values of liberty, justice and honor shaped America. Generations fought for freedom, and presidents of both parties stood against foreign tyrants like Vladimir Putin.

 

Why won’t Donald Trump tell Congress to name a bipartisan select committee to get the truth?”

 

-Right now, Trump has people with conflicts in charge of each “investigation” into his Russia scandal.....

Putin was initially very popular in Russia because he was a serious leader, in contrast to the buffoon Boris Yeltsin, and he used this popularity to steamroll everything in his path. Now even if Russians don't like him, nothing can be done about it.
