JUNKETING: The meeting in Azerbaijan. Azer

An Azerbaijan news agency reports on a visit from U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes, Donald Trump’s protector on the House Intelligence Committee, along with committee member, Rep. Rick Crawford, a Republican from Arkansas’s 1st Congressional District.

Not much in the U.S. press about the recess journey. The Daily Kos website ties it into Trump-Russian intrigue. Maybe it merely is about sending some of the U.S.’s best and brightest abroad to solve the long border dispute with Armenia. The right-wing Washington Examiner quotes Nunes on Fox as saying it’s about energy supplies, a gas pipeline from the Caspian Sea to Europe.
