Report: Romney son sends assurances to Putin about rhetoric

The entree was apparently made while Matt Romney was in Moscow on a business trip earlier this week seeking Russian investors for his real estate firm. The report did also not name the Russian man with ties to the Putin administration.

The Romney campaign declined to comment on the report.

Romney has also criticized President Obama for a hot mic moment when President Obama was caught privately assuring Russian leaders that he would have more of an opportunity to negotiate a missile defense program compromise after the presidential election.

"I have clear eyes on this. I'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Putin, and I'm certainly not going to say to him, I'll give you more flexibility after the election," Romney said during the final presidential debate.
