A liberal activist handed out "pro-Trump" flags at CPAC that look strikingly similar to the Russian flag...

In a video obtained by the NTK Network, people can be seen accepting flags that look identical to the Russian flag before they attended President Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

According to Peter Hamby, the flags were, “pro-Trump flags that look exactly like the Russian flag,” and “staffers quickly [came] around to confiscate them.”

The flags were being distributed by Ryan Clayton, according to CPAC officials. Clayton, who is a contributor to the Huffington Post, lists himself as the president of Americans Take Action, a group that has 21 signatures on its petition to impeach President Trump.
