  1. Putin bought Trump properties, then he bought the presidency. No mystery there.

      @deee 327 How’s the weather in St. Petersburg, boris?

    • @David H Davey, do your homework and go to bed.

    • TheMaryam1891 | August 8, 2020 at 7:39 AM | Reply

      @deee 327 That is exactly why Trump and the rooski turned Senators refused to enforce sanctions.

    • @deee 327 It’s just laughable that you think it is not. You are the very reason the entire world is laughing at the US now. Just too many really stupid people.
      So how about you explain this one?

    • @Bace You cant even admit it….
      What you said was false! It would take you 5 minutes to look up wikipedia to confirm that Manafort was last paid 2 years before Trump even announced that he would run.
      Of course admitting to either lying or not knowing what you were talking about is not an option for you…

      Lets play it this way. Lets say Manafort got his couple millions in 2016 even though he didnt.
      What does it say about you that you think this is a smoking gun while not even mentioning once that Hunter Biden flew, with his then Vice President daddy, on Airforce 2 to China where he got a stake in a 1.5 billion $ ivestment company that is backed by the Bank Of China which is directly controlled by the CCP?
      You really cant see how pathetic you look here?
      Imagine Trump flew on Airforce 2 to Russia with his son and did that.

    It’s treason to work with a foreign power to undermine our democracy. trump is a traitor! Worse, he allows that foreign power to target our military abroad!

      I am holding my breath for what I’m hoping will be a presidential indictment in the coming weeks!

      It won’t happen. Moscow Mitch willl not allow it. The best case is a landslide win for Biden, too big to rig rendering the Electoral College neutered. Trump will be dealt with later. No charges now means no pardons. He will not be protected as of 12 noon January 20 2022.

    • @Linda and Warren FowlPatt Sorry, Nixon was pardoned without being charged. He needs to be impeached, after the landslide election, but before he issues the landslide of pardons. Maybe the new senate will be patriotic enough to remove him.

    • GeneralKenobi75 | August 8, 2020 at 1:19 PM | Reply

      @Linda and Warren FowlPatt Exactly. We need to make this win as big as possible.

  5. Meanwhile, Putin’s asset in the Oval Office STILL hasn’t uttered a word about the bounties that Putin has placed on the heads of our troops in Afghanistan. And he never will.

    Trump has abandoned our troops the same way he has abandoned our States and the American people to deal with the coronavirus.

    • @Tom Tamir Oh really? Got any evidence of that coz that’s not what the military are saying?

    • Trump is supposed to be our Commander-in-Chief. So much for leadership from the top, eh?

      He’s got go people. Get out there and vote before we lose our democracy to the fascists.

    • @Tom Tamir Really, why do the Allies know otherwise? Are you purposely obtuse?

    • Linda and Warren FowlPatt | August 7, 2020 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      Yet he gushed his sorrow for the people of Beirut. But wont say much about the lives lost in the US because of his utter incapability in handling the virus.

    • @Brian Allen Donaldov Trumputin – America’s Traitor in Chief

  6. Trump demeans and ridicules US Intelligence Services and sides with Putin and Russia against America, it’s institutions and Democracy.

    Vote 🌊across the board and in numbers never seen before, your life, America and the economy literally depends on it.

  7. Traitor’s I don’t see anything less than that. God help us.

  8. Michael Hayden, the former head of the CIA and National Security Agency, said Kushner, who discussed plans with the Russan Ambassador, to establish a secret communication channel with the Kremlin — using Russian facilities — without any monitoring by the U.S. was “off the map” and like nothing he has seen in his lifetime. “What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or an appropriate idea?” Hayden stated. 

    On December 13th, 2016, at Russian Ambassador Kislyak’s urging, Kushner met with Sergey Gorkov, a Russian banker who is close to Putin. Again, what jumps out from Kushner’s account of the meeting is the easy access that the Russians had to Trump’s people —“I agreed to meet Mr. Gorkov because the Russian Ambassador has been so insistent,” and “said he had a direct relationship with” Putin, Kushner noted—and the obvious attempts to soften up Trump’s closest aides and family members. Gorkov, whose bank, Vnesheconombank, was affected by the Obama Administration’s sanctions against Russia..

    Hayden was also convinced Don Jr’s Trump Tower meeting, and Kushner’s secret meetings with the Russian Ambassador was a classic “soft approach” by Russian intelligence. Hayden argued that the meeting “is in line with what intelligence analysts would expect an overture in a Russian influence operation to look like,” and that it may have been the “green light Russia was looking for to launch a more aggressive phase of intervention in the U.S. election.”

    Hayden explained that the Russians would have learned several things from the approach.
    No. 1 “Would they take the meeting?  So, then you get the willingness.. No. 2, would they report the meeting?” Hayden suggested that Russian intelligence was sophisticated enough to know whether the Trump campaign reported the meeting to the F.B.I., which it didn’t. Not only did they not report the meeting, they lied about the meeting when asked. Kushner even lied about the meetings on his security clearance application.  So, while Kushner and Don. Jr claimed that the meetings were irrelevant, from a Russian intelligence perspective it would have been seen as a clear signal. “At the end, they have established that these guys are willing,” Hayden said, pausing. “How do I put this? They did not reject a relationship.”

    • When we get a real AG in place they will have years of work ahead of them, the Trump regime has been flagrantly breaking laws since before they got into office and it’s accelerated as though they think they will never leave office.

      @Mainely A landslide win for Biden is the only thing that will ensure Trump is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    • Mike Galbraith | August 7, 2020 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      Yes, the attempt to establish a secure channel to the Kremlin shows clear intent to circumvent the law.

    Trump’s tax returns will make it all make sense.

  10. How is tRump still the Commander-in-Chief when he’s sold out on America, done nothing about the Russian bounty on US soldiers or Russian interference with US presidential elections? Why isn’t he being tried for treason?

    Trump thinks Putin wants him to win because he likes him…they’re “buddies”. He doesn’t understand that Putin is thrilled to have a malleable puppet in the White House that he can influence.

      Vladimir Putin is a highly trained KGB agent. He achieves his goals through disinformation, undermining and sabotage. You can be sure that he was behind Trump’s nomination in 2016, because it might have been more difficult to influence any of the other Republican candidates in his own way. He had to pick the “least intelligent” man whom he could bribe with business deals and whom he had a long file on, that contained all the filth about that man. Everything Putin does is aimed at destabilizing his possible opponents, be it the US or the EU or NATO. He’s very successful at that. Without Russian “help” there would probably have been no Brexit. Putin is probably one of the most intelligent but also most purposeful statesmen of our time and that makes him extremely dangerous.

    • @Toward Treatise

      It is not illegal to investigate the president’s criminal dealings, especially with Russia. In fact, it’s the FBI’s job to oversight the president
      as a babysitter, making sure he sticks to the Constitution. He doesn’t. He’s an orange KGB mole who owes Putin a hundred million dollars for bailing out his bankruptcys twenty years ago.

    • @Kroger Babb
      Thanks for the link!
      Dautch Banks is/has handed Trump’s financial records to Congress which may show money from or going to Russia, among other things.
      As for what Dumb and Dumber said, that was on the news around 3 years ago and another one of many reasons we suspect (we being those who uses their sensibilities righly), Trump has ties with Russia/Putin.
      Trump himself throws his punch so often, it seems clear.
      Now its a wait and see what happens when he loses because SDNY may put him in prison.
      Please continue posting that link!

    Hello, the Democrats in Congress are doing their job it’s the Republicans that refuse to do theirs.

    • Madeline Schaffer | August 7, 2020 at 11:35 PM | Reply

      Exactly, House Democrats had a contingency plan for when the aid for unemployment and evictions moratorium expired, and the GOP run Senate waited until the Eve of the expiration of assistance to do anything. Now they are complaining that the Democrats are being unreasonable and holding up the process……


  16. The only thing that’s been a constant in trump’s presidency is his failure to stand up to putin at every occasion.

    • j leon jackson | August 8, 2020 at 2:30 AM | Reply

      @deee 327 I apologize, that was low. However, regarding my age, I’m old enough to have voted for Kennedy and see his assasination, and wise enough to know that Trump is dangerous, scheming, and every move he makes should be highly scrutined. Including checking the time/date stamps on the mail-in votes on the election deadline. They’ll be rigged as well.

    • @j leon jackson People that claim their IQ being higher are mostly dumb idiots that like to assume things about others.
      I on the other hand didnt have to assume anything as your comment was so laughably immature that you just had to be a kid. At least i hope you are…Else i feel really sorry for you.

      That includes the bounties on our troops, so much for being loyal to the military.

    “Trump’s time in office has been a national embarrassment, weakening America’s standing on the world stage. He has shown himself to be fundamentally incapable of and uninterested in being president, exclusively looking out for himself, his businesses, and his family — no matter the costs to American life, liberty, or happiness. Now, against the backdrop of an unprecedented pandemic and deepening recession, the Trump administration’s lies, corruption, and sheer incompetence are directly impacting the lives of millions of Americans.” Per American Bridge….
