Children, Donald Trump, and Fbi: Repost @time: At first glance, the man on our July 30, 2018, cover might seem familiar: it was created by morphing images of two of the world’s most recognizable men, President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The composite image, by visual artist @nancyburson, is meant to represent this particular moment in U.S. foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki. As our senior White House correspondent Brian Bennett writes in this week’s cover story: “A year and a half into his presidency, Trump’s puzzling affinity for Putin has yet to be explained. Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can’t concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome. He views this problem entirely through a political lens, these people say, unable or unwilling to differentiate between the question of whether his campaign colluded with Russia—which he denies—and the question of whether Russia attempted to influence the election.” Burson, who became well known for developing a technique to age faces, which is used by the FBI to find missing children, says the goal of her latest composite is to help readers “stop and think” when it comes to similarities between the two leaders. “What my work has always been about is allowing people to see differently,” she tells TIME. “The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn’t see before.” Read this week's full cover story on TIME.com.

Donald Trump, Lawyer, and Memes: Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign @balleralert Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign -blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Associates of Donald Trump and his company just turned in documents showing they had unreported contact with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Federal investigators have confiscated the documents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the instances involves Trump's personal attorney and business colleague exchanging emails weeks prior to the Republican National Convention about the lawyer possibly attending an economic conference in Russia, where elite Russian financial and government leaders would be attendance. Amongst all the names, President Vladimir Putin was included. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another situation involved Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, again. In 2015, Cohen received a proposal for a Moscow residential project from a company founded by a billionaire who once served in the upper house of the Russian parliament. This marks the second time for a Trump-branded Moscow project that's been delivered to the company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Cohen declined the invitation to the economic conference saying it would be difficult to attend so close to the GOP convention. He also rejected the Moscow building plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nevertheless , the information about the interactions has been provided to congressional committees as well as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as they investigate whether Trump associates coordinated with Russian efforts to interfere in the U.S. election, according to people familiar with the inquiries.
