    Donny boy it ain’t Biden you should worry about, The BERN is real, 2020.

    • Indeed lets go burnie!

    • NO-ORWELLIAN Dystopia – yeah well, those creeps probably have Bernie on their radar…

    • NO KIDDING. This is what makes me crazy, Biden is not even going to be on the Ballot and never was! Trump is a racist and thinks that only a tall old white man with big teeth can win so he messed up his own presidency for something that was NOT going to happen as there will not be a Biden in 2020. It is truly insane.

    • JoAnn Holmes – Feel the Bern…!

  5. Putin is not about to let go of his most prized possession in the Oval Office.
    When it comes to Trump, it really doesn’t matter which roads you take. You can take the highways, the interstate, back roads, country roads, or dirt roads. They will all lead straight back to Russia.

  6. In 2015, Western European intelligence agencies began picking up evidence of communications between the Russian government and people in Donald Trump’s orbit. In April 2016, one of the Baltic states shared with then–CIA director John Brennan an audio recording of Russians discussing funneling money to the Trump campaign. In the summer of 2016, Robert Hannigan, head of the U.K. intelligence agency GCHQ, flew to Washington to brief Brennan on intercepted communications between the Trump campaign and Russia..

    The contents of these communications have not been disclosed, but what Brennan learned obviously unsettled him profoundly. In congressional testimony on Russian election interference last year, Brennan hinted that some Americans might have betrayed their country. “Individuals who go along a treasonous path,” he warned, “do not even realize they’re along that path until it gets to be a bit too late.” In an interview this year, he put it more bluntly: “I think [Trump] is afraid of the president of Russia. The Russians may have something on him personally that they could always roll out and make his life more difficult.”

    In July 2016, a loose-knit community of computer scientists and cybersecurity experts discovered a strange pattern of online traffic between two computer servers. One of those servers belonged to Alfa Bank in Moscow and the other to the Trump Organization. Alfa Bank’s owners had “assumed an unforeseen level of prominence and influence in the economic and political affairs of their nation,” as a federal court once put it.

    The analysts noted that the traffic between the two servers occurred during office hours in New York and Moscow and spiked in correspondence with major campaign events, suggesting it entailed human communication rather than bots. More suspiciously, after New York Times reporter Eric Lichtblau asked Alfa Bank about it but before he brought it up with the Trump campaign, the server in Trump Tower shut down. The timing strongly implied Alfa Bank was communicating with Trump..

    • So why isn’t anything being done about this??

    • @Iwon Because once Trump won the presidency and put his own people in place, it was a simple matter to tell them not to do anything about it.

      Flashback 30 years ago, trump’s profile was picture perfect for a russian kompromat. After 6 bankruptcies, he’s too cozy with the mob and the emerging russian oligarchs used him to launder money for them through the trump’s organisation as an infusion of critically needed capital. That’s Putin’s control of trump. Not the golden shower video. At that time, no bank in manhattan wants to do business with trump.

    • Thanks David J

      David J > Did you ever wonder why trump doesn’t have business in Australia? He’s not granted a licence to operate because he is a business risk because of his business model based on bankruptcies and scamming people! He’s also too cozy with the mob and the emerging russian oligarchs in which authorities suspects that he’s laundering money for those people through the trump organisation. You can google it to fact check.

  7. Rudy’s gonna be mad that Russia is doing his job for him! 😆😅

  8. Comrade Trump

  9. trump and his partners in Russia…at it again.
    We should really vote this guy out. Conviction in an honest senate would be better. Only 67 are needed.
    Will this be a “profile in courage”? Or a throwback to an all-white southern jury, where we “don’t need no stinkin’ facts—or any other kind”?

  10. Trump is a Russian asset and a danger to this nation.

  11. Why is trump still in office we know hes working with russia.

  12. As many times as trumps story changes, Pelosi has said all roads lead to Putin.

    Did you hear about Trump suffering from scurvy in college?
    The best he could do was a C minus.

  14. that was some amazing journalism, brava! ty ms perlroth and mr o’donnell. truth always comes out eventually.

    Trump will always be the ‘illegitimate president’.

  16. The Russian White House.

  17. GOP – Goons Of Putin

  18. Cue the Trump cult in 3…2…1… claiming this is a “deep state” smear against Trump

  19. Another “Russian hack?” how convenient… now all the corruption and money exchanges at burisma were just planted by Russians… the Bidens never made money from this… 😉

  20. Normally I’d say “Follow the money lebowski” but in this case it’s ” Follow the leads and they all end back to Putin”. Just another little favour for Cheeto the Clown..
