Stephen Colbert took a cue from The Usual Suspects last night to demonstrate that maybe those ties between Donald Trump and the Russians aren’t so hidden after all.

In light of recent reports revealing several of Trump’s aides’ ties to Russia—and Michael Flynn’s resignation—some have called for an investigation and answers to who knew what and when. But Colbert, taking the place of Kevin Spacey’s character in the movie opposite Chazz Palminteri’s officer, is upfront about what he’s learned. He knows something and he’s spent the past year trying to get his attention.

It’s right there on the board—even where you can’t see it.
