I appear on RTTV with Ed Schultz on April 10th.  U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is just finishing up the G7 Summit in Italy and on his way to Moscow for talks and boy is there a lot to talk about.  The U.S. just conducted airstrikes in Syria and there are enormous disagreements on that front.  In addition, the Russians are still at the epicenter of a firestorm in Washington regarding their tampering with American elections and there are multiple investigations taking place in Washington to get to the bottom of that.  And to some degree, tied to the Russian tampering is an issue that is near and dear to the Russians' heart and that is sanctions.  When Russia invaded the Crimea in Ukraine, sanctions were placed on it by the West and particularly the Americans.  The Russians want those sanctions lifted.  In fact, there are many, myself included, that believe that the Russians' invovlement in U.S. elections and maybe even their collusion with the U.S., if proven, was tied directly to the sanctions question.  

So, there is a lot to talk about.
