Stephen Colbert is all ready to release information about his recent Russian trip.
CBS’ The Late Show will kick off “Russia Week” on Monday, July 17, with five new episodes that include highlights from his recent trip to the country last month.
The Late Show will air pieces shot while Colbert was in St. Petersburg and Moscow, featuring his interactions with the Russian people, his interview and vodka shots on the Russian late-night television talk show Evening Urgant and lessons he learned on how to live the oligarch lifestyle from Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.
There will be many highlights from his Colbert’s trip abroad, the late-night talk show host has extended an open invitation to any Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer with dirt on Hillary Clinton. Other Late Show guests for the week will include former Vice President Al Gore, Issa Rae, Keegan-Michael Key, Jason Bateman and Muse.
“I was asked to go to Russia by an acquaintance I knew from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant to meet with an individual who I was told might have information helpful to my show,” claimed Colbert in a statement. “Donald Trump Jr.’s father knew nothing of the meeting or these events. Or evidently, much else.”
Colbert first revealed he was visiting Russia in a tweet on June 22 in response to President Donald Trump’s tweet about denying the existence of any tapes made of ousted FBI director James Comey.
