WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 12: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks during a press conference regarding the executive order President Donald Trump signed earlier on Thursday, on Capitol Hill, October 12, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) reportedly delivered a handwritten letter from President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin during his visit to Russia earlier this week.

The Kentucky Republican tweeted on Wednesday that the letter “emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges.”

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported Trump wrote the letter to Putin “at Senator Paul’s request” to serve as an “introduction” of the Senator to Putin.

Collins also said sources told her the letter contained “things Paul wanted to discuss, not topics Trump asked him to bring up,” which is the opposite of what Paul insinuated in his tweet.

The specific substance of the letter has not been made publicly available. There are some guesses as to what it contains, though.

Twitter roasted Paul for deciding to be Trump’s “mailman.”

Needless to say, people are wondering what has spurned Paul’s sudden affection for Russia.

“Why Rand Paul?”

“Suspicious” certainly fits the bill.

Trump’s White House would never contort the truth. Ever.

Where is Ambassador Jon Huntsman and why is Paul doing his job?

Why not send Putin an email instead? Oh right…

In any other time, this hypothesis would sound crazy. But here we are.

Paul traveled to Moscow on Monday to meet with members of the Russian Parliament in what he claimed was an effort to continue diplomatic outreach initiated by Trump.
