Several of Trump's business are entangled with Russian financiers.

Bayrock Group, widely know in law enforcement circles for money laundering, tax evasion, and helping organized crime families defraud stock investors (https://www.bloomberg.com/view/artic...iness-partners) has been involved in financing a number of Trump's endeavors.

"Bayrock wasn’t just involved with Trump Soho. It financed multiple Trump projects around the world, Foer wrote. “(Trump) didn’t just partner with Bayrock; the company embedded with him. Bayrock put together deals for mammoth Trump-named, Trump-managed projects—two in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a resort in Phoenix, the Trump SoHo in New York.”

"three of Trump’s top advisors all have extensive financial and business ties to Russian financiers, wrote Boot, the former editor of the Op Ed page of the Wall Street Journal and now a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations."

Donald Trump's Many, Many, Many, Many Ties to Russia

Trump's support of Russia makes perfect sense when you realize what he has at stake here.

As Molly Ivins used to say, "You got to dance with the guy that brought you."

Back in July I started this thread laying out circumstantial evidence that Trump has conflicts of interests in Russia, his people have ties to Russia, and may be compromised by the Russian government. Many posters considered the Russia allegations to be wild conspiracy, a hoax, an unsubstantiated rumor.

Yesterday, after the Senate convened for recess, the Senate Intelligence Committee had a classified two-hour meeting with James Comey in a secure room. (Comey meets Intel senators amid uproar over Trump-Russia ties | TheHill).

The Trump-Russia scandal has very long legs, it continues to deepen. Three Trump staffers have lost their jobs over their Russia connections: Manafort, Page and Flynn. A rumor is circulating that Tillerson may be next for an early exit.

The Trump-Russia scandal is very real. Senators don't delay recess to have secret meetings in a secure room unless serious, urgent facts have been revealed as part of an investigation. This story is not going away. It will take time for all of the facts to come out; after all, it took two years from the date of the Watergate break-in until Congress built a case for the impeachment of Richard Nixon.
