|This Yahoo News story is excruciatingly vague, but does focus on the question that needs to be focused on: Just what the hell is the relationship between notorious arch-conservative hoaxer and internet troll Charles Johnson and Trump's hanging-on-by-his-teeth commerce secretary Wilbur Ross? 'Hi Secretary Ross,' the markedly informal email sent by Johnson that day begins. 'Great chatting with you the other day.' Johnson proceeds to say that he would be 'speaking before about 30 congressmen on tech issues' in Washington and 'would love to meet' with Ross as well. Ross tried to set up that meeting via an adviser, and a similar later meeting based on something of supposedly 'international import.' The meetings themselves allegedly never actually happened, however. Johnson would only tell Yahoo News that it was a 'national security matter,' which is as likely to be a lie as not, and there's no explanation why Ross would be granting special and deferential treatment to Johnson even after Johnson's exposure as Holocaust denier, fake news promoter, extremist fundraiser, and the like have rendered him toxic nearly everywhere else. It is a mystery.
