I recently watched "The White Mughal" presented by @DalrympleWill, from his 2002 book - and cried like a baby.

I am now reading the book again. A beautiful, tragic story brought to life, and down the history rabbit hole, I go.

Goodbye, Donald Trump. You were the worst of us. ‘we can’t list his misdeeds, because there are simply too many. We can’t recount his lies, because they stack halfway to the moon.’

Brilliant @lukeharding1968 on Trump & Putin: "Back in 1980s the Soviets invited Trump to Moscow. It identified him as a person capable of bringing down the Republic. The invasion of the Capitol was the culmination of this cold war fantasy."

We still don't have a definitive explanation for Trump's servile behaviour towards Putin over four years - the one consistent theme in his doom-laden presidency. Will we learn more in coming weeks? #Trump- #Putin convos would be a good place to start, plus the Moscow money trail

Comey cites Michael Cohen's memoir and last summer's Senate intelligence committee report which revealed the #FSB spy agency has a network of secret cameras at the Ritz-Carlton hotel where Trump stayed in #Moscow, with an undercover officer onsite
