Stephen Colbert Says Russian Intelligence Followed Him All Over Russia

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" edged out "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" by 34,000 viewers for the week ended June 23.

"Man, it is good to be back in the U.S.A.", Colbert said Monday. "I don't know if you knew I was in Russian Federation last week".

"But it's important to keep an eye on a comedian who's in Russian Federation doing jokes. Followed me everywhere", Colbert said.

"Late Show with Stephen Colbert". "I could be giving state secrets to the Russians", he said. If I decide to run, obviously, I'm not gonna ask the Russians to help my campaign. OK?

This week, both Fallon and Colbert have original episodes ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. Colbert didn't spill many details on Monday night's show, except to say that the footage will be used in an upcoming week of shows all about his trip, which he called "fascinating".

"I'm just exhausted of Trump", she said on a panel about her show on May 16. During the show, he revealed that he was under surveillance by Russian and American intelligence agents the entire time he was visiting. "I'd have my son-in-law ask them". Colbert then made a quip at President Trump's expense saying, "Oh wait, somebody's already got that covered".

Colbert spent the bulk of his monologue discussing Donald Trump's hypocrisy around the widely accepted belief that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

- "For those of you not familiar with late-night TV in Russian Federation, it might seem a little foreign".
