Out of 2024 condos and expensive real estate sold by the Trumporganization in
the last ten years 740 of them have been to shell corporations. Whole floors of
the Trump Towers are owned by Russian billionaires. Trump sold a mansion in
Florida to a Russian Oligarch for $100 Million. He only paid $40 million for it.
Trump has been doing business with the Russians for decades. Russian money has
been behind many of Trump's bankruptcy and behind many of the failed
projects that Trump has supported with his brand.
@worf, where to begin.For starters, he told Natalia Veselnitskaya,
the Kremlin lawyer/GRU agent, that if elected, the administration could revisit
the Magnitsky Act, which are painful sanctions against Russia.That is
collusion defined. Then today we find out that during the campaign,
Jr had been communicating with Wikileaks, a tool of the Kremlin, to get
information from them to use against Hillary.That's collusion. And I don't blame you for not knowing, FoxNews would have only
briefly mentioned these events, with no helpful context.This is
serious stuff. The administration's only defense will be: We aren't
politicians. We didn't know better.Benedict Arnold is sitting bolt
upright in his grave.
worf, "Where's your proof of Russian collusion? Dig it out!" I
think that's what Mueller is doing, unless Trump tries to fire him too.
@Ralph,Where's your proof of Russian collusion? Dig it out!
Worf, is it cold yet in St Petersburg?It's funny how FoxNews
and Trump supporters are the only ones in all the countries in the West that
truly understand that the Russian influence in our elections is a "false
saga". BTW, I think you meant "false maga".People, turn
off the BBC and put down the Economist. FoxNews, RussiaToday, and TASS is where
you should get your information.
The false saga continues.Only a fool would believe in contacts
between Trump campaign and Russia.
worf - McAllen, TXNov. 14, 2017 5:41 p.m."Like a dog
chasing its tail. Russian collusion is fools gold for liberals."Is this the first you've heard of the cooperation between the Trump
campaign and Russia? Perhaps if you told us where you get your news we could
clue you in to the work being done by the excellent journalists involved in this
story with the NYT/WaPo.As for those who read the news, cooperation
between the Trump campaign (and probably Donald Trump himself) and Russia is an
established fact. Maybe the best proof is the meeting between Trump, Jr., Jarred
Kushner, and Paul Manafort meeting with several Russians (including an ex-KGB
agent and military intelligence official) at Trump Tower ostensibly to get dirt
on Hillary Clinton (verified by Trump, Jr. emails) and remove sanctions against
Russia.So, where are you getting your news? If Trump says it's
all "fake", do you just believe him? What about Roy Moore? Do you
believe him? And what do you say about the 'Access Hollywood' tape
that you could see and hear with your own eyes last year? You didn't need
to watch MSNBC to see that. Maybe you're still hoping for an
Obamacare repeal? Oh, yes, and for Trump's Wall!
The latest news out of Europe the British and Spanish prime ministers have told
Russia to stop meddling.British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday
night charged that President Vladimir Putin's Russia was attempting to
"undermine free societies" and "sow discord" in Britain and
among its Western allies by "deploying its state-run media organisations to
plant fake stories."So the old saying "if it smells like a
duck, sounds like a duck, flies like a duck" then it probably is a Duck. Or
in other words Russia were up to the armpits in the election for Trump. For Russia it is cheap to cause disruption in the west using a few cheap
facebook adds and a thousand bots. As a country bringing down the free world
gives them power.
Like a dog chasing its tail. Russian collusion is fools gold for liberals.
Whatever happened to -- "Believe me...""Trust
me..""I'm telling you...""Witch hunt""Fake News""total fabrication""lies"Seriously -- when does it become apparent that Trump is a
pathological liar, his is compromised by the Russians, he is
conflicted with his loyalty to Truth and America or to a hostile
foreign power, To all the Trump supporter -- No one can
possibly imagine your outcry if this was Obama or Clinton.All
I'm asking is to be honest, and use the same level of integrity to assess
what is going on right now...
Just what does it take for the country to realize we have been had. That trump
is a Russian troll on American democracy. And that the GOP is really about
power over people.Cry for our lost beloved country. All we have
left are hope and prayer that we do not descend completely into totalitarism.
That is a compelling list but it seems likely it is only a small piece of the
overall picture. Trump calls the media the "enemy of the people" yet
without the press, it's fair to ask how much involvement would the Russians
have in the day-to-day management of the country?All of this Russian
involvement will eventually unravel. When the Republican party functions without
any ethical or moral boundaries, and when so many Republicans are eager to say
"so what?" about these Trump/Russian interactions, that's an abyss
a majority of Americans refuse to plunge into. Sovereignty means something; in
fact, it means everything to democracies.
