And why is that?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump “pressed” Putin on Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election– even though Trump still isn’t persuaded it actually happened.

So I have to wonder how convincing Trump’s efforts really were, and how seriously Putin took them.

And the Russian version, offered by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, seems rather different:

Not that I trust Lavrov’s truthfulness any more than Trump’s, but his version is certainly more consistent with what Trump has been saying for the past six months.
