California Governor to Collude With Russians

Sep 4, 2017

Governor Jerry Brown flew to Vladivostok, Russia on Sunday to participate in an economic cooperation conference. The event will be hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin is expected to give the opening speech. It is not clear that Brown will meet with Putin. Governor Brown will participate in a panel discussion to look for areas of opportunity to cooperate. Governor Brown is expected to “promote what he refers to as sustainable investments in de-carbonizing the planet.” “Every government and every business is responsible for making this radical turn and from Victorville to Vladivostok, California will continue to lead the charge,” Brown said Thursday. Funding for the trip comes from grants originating from the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation. The meeting comes after Trump campaign and administration officials have had their Russian connections examined for collusion.
