      The DNC will claim that it is part of Putin’s plan to replace these 755 US diplomatic staff by Putin-friendly staff when diplomatic staff are permitted to return.

    Why on earth are there more than 755 American diplomats in Russia?

      Limousines, swanky hotels,champagne, Russian super models and the Russian caviar would be my guess.

        Well, they could not possibly be there to interfere with elections or anything of that nature. I do doubt they are there to look after a huge number of American citizens living in Russia though.
