Rachel Maddow connects the dots between a billionaire Russian oligarch and a bizarre Donald Trump deal

Why would a savvy Russian billionaire buy a tear-down, mold-infested house from Donald Trump for $100 million, and what does it have to do with newly confirmed Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross?

The fact that Republicans in Congress have blocked every attempt to open an investigation into Trump's ties to Russian money laundering makes them complicit in the ongoing coverup.
