The Evidence of a Trump-Russia Connection Is Only Getting Stronger Everyday!

The Evidence of a Trump-Russia Connection Is Only Getting Stronger Everyday!
For years now, there has been speculation about Donald Trump's ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin. While the evidence has been largely circumstantial, it keeps piling up daily—and it's getting harder and harder to ignore. Here's a look at some of the most damning evidence that Trump is in bed with the Russians. 1. Trump has relied on money from nefarious sources before. As Sammy the Bull Gravano testified, the mafia often used Trump as a way to laundered their money—or as a silent investor in Trump projects. Given Trump's history, it's not that big of a leap to believe he would be involved with the Russians. 2. Trump's team was caught trying to collude with the Russians during the election. In June 2016, Donald Trump Jr. met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer after being promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father win the election. 3. There are suspicious ties between Trump campaign staffers and Russia. Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, is known for his work on behalf of pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, was paid $45,000 by RT—a Russian state-owned television station—to speak at a gala in 2015. 4. The Russian government reportedly has compromising information on Trump. According to a dossier compiled by a former British intelligence agent, Russia has compromising personal and financial information on Trump that could be used to blackmail him. 5. Trump has spoken favorably about Putin in the past. In 2007, Trump praised Putin for "what he’s done for Russia." And during the 2016 campaign, he said it would be "nice" if the U.S. and Russia got along better—despite reports of Russian aggression towards its neighbors. 6. Putin reportedly had a "preference" forTrump over Clinton. According to U .S . officials who spoke to The Washington Post, Putin had a "clear preference" for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election—and took specific actions to help him win., 7. Since taking office, Trump has been soft on Russia despite their continued aggression and remains so today., For example, he seemed unconcerned when Russia annexed Crimea in 2014—an act that resulted in widespread condemnation from Western leaders., When Russia recently invaded Ukraine Trump called Putin "smart" and "savvy" because Putin had declared portions of Ukraine "independent," something Putin had no right to do. 8. Finally, Mueller's investigation did turn up evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.—then with Roger Stone's indictment for lying to Congress about his contact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 election and lets not forget Lieutenant General Flynn, a former Army intelligence officer who served, briefly, as President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, who in December 2015, he attended a gala dinner in Moscow for RT, the Kremlin-run media organization. He was paid $45,000 for his appearance and was seated at a table with President Vladimir Putin. Obama had appointed him as directer of the Defense Intelligence Agency but two years later, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper showed him the door. That wasn’t his first trip to Russia: As director of the DIA, he had met two years earlier with Russian intelligence officers in Moscow, ignoring the advice of the CIA’s station chief. When he tried to invite a Russian group to Washington in 2014, not long after Russia’s first invasion of Ukraine, Mr. Clapper reportedly had to warn him off. despite all of that and much more Donald Trump was sworn in as president and Michael Flynn became his national security adviser.
Two FBI agents met with Mr. Flynn to ask him about his phone calls in late December with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. At that time, the Obama administration had expelled 35 Russian diplomats and imposed sanctions on Russia for interfering in the 2016 election – including hacking and releasing emails from Mrs. Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. Russia had unexpectedly taken no retaliatory measures. The agents wanted to know if Mr. Flynn, as the incoming national security adviser, had asked the ambassador not to escalate. He told them no, they hadn’t discussed the sanctions. Asked if there had been a follow-up call with Ambassador Kislyak, he said he didn’t recall one. Pressed to clarify, he stuck to his account. Both claims were false – as the FBI, which had transcripts of the calls, knew. It set off a storm that led to Mr. Flynn’s resignation less than a month into his tenure, after President Trump concluded he had lied not only to the FBI but also to Vice President Mike Pence, who had publicly repeated the denials. Mr. Flynn eventually struck a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, who was investigating Russian links to the Trump campaign. The deal would mean no prison time and would end a separate prosecution for illegal lobbying for Turkey. In December 2017, he told a federal court in Washington that he took full responsibility. “I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right,” he said in a statement, calling his guilty plea “in the best interests of my family and of our country.” ., With close ties to people like Michael Flynn & Paul Manafort it's getting harder and harder to deny that there is something fishy going on between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin's regime in Russia.—especially when you consider all of the circumstantial evidence that keeps piling up., Politicians, voters, media pundits: we can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to this issue., , It is time for investigations into Donald Trump's ties to Russia to be taken seriously—before it's too late., , , , ,
