Stephen Colbert does Russia

Starting July 17, The Late Show will offer up "Russia Week", a week of episodes that feature highlights from his overseas adventures, CBS revealed on Monday.

Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert chose to give some of the people featured in the president's tweets even more publicity. Finally, you'll get to see the host's visits to Moscow and St. Petersburg, where he gets some face-to-face time with the Russian people.

After Donald Trump Jr. releases an email exchange that shows him setting up a meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer, Trevor unpacks the first son's possible case of collusion.

The week's slate of guests includes Al Gore, Keegan-Michael Key, Jason Bateman and Issa Rae. "Or evidently, much else".

Colbert is the latest of several TV personalities to head to Russian Federation in recent months. Russian Federation has been under scrutiny in recent months for its alleged connections to the president and specifically the allegations that it somehow tampered with the results of the 2016 US presidential election.

Colbert has increasingly leaned in to more political coverage, which he used to cover aggressively on his former Comedy Central show The Colbert Report and before that on The Daily Show.
