Leaky, Leaky

Oleg V. Deripaska, a Russian oligarch once close to President Trump’s former campaign manager, has offered to cooperate with congressional committees investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, but lawmakers are unwilling to accept his conditions, according to congressional officials.

That's crap.
Senate and House panels turned him down because of concerns that immunity agreements create complications for federal criminal investigators, the officials said.


Mr. Deripaska, an aluminum magnate who is a member of the inner circle of the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin, recently offered to cooperate with congressional intelligence committees in exchange for a grant of full immunity, according to three congressional officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the issue publicly.


Mr. Deripaska’s offer comes amid increased attention to his ties to Paul Manafort, who is one of several Trump associates under F.B.I. scrutiny for possible collusion with Russia during the presidential campaign.
Seriously, how much can the US do to him? Is he not a Russian citizen?

Another question: Is Trump going to make it to mid-terms?

UPDATE:  Deripaska is denying this report.
