A few weeks back Stephen Colbert showed viewers that he decided to do is own investigation on Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia. At the time it was unclear what Colbert was up to but now we know. For a week starting on July 17; Colbert will kick off ‘Russia Week’. The week of shows will highlight Colbert’s trip to Russia and anything he found interesting.
Installments of that week’s late-night shows will include segments filmed in Moscow and St. Petersburg, conversations with Russian citizens, an interview he did with Russian late-night television show “Evening Urgant,” and “lessons he learned on how to live the oligarch lifestyle” from billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. “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,” quipped Colbert in a statement. “Donald Trump Jr.’s father knew nothing of the meeting or these events. Or evidently, much else.” Stateside guests in the Ed Sullivan Theatre that week will include former Vice President Al Gore, Issa Rae, Keegan-Michael Key, Jason Bateman, and Muse.
