FBI investigation underway that the cybercrime against the Democratic Party was done by Russian intelligence. At the same time, Trump's deep connections to Putin and his colleagues are being increasingly exposed:

"The theory that Moscow orchestrated the leaks to help Trump, who has repeatedly praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and practically called for the end of NATO, is fast gaining currency within the Obama administration because of the timing of the leaks and Trump’s own connections to the Russian government" (source)

Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, worked as a lobbyist for the Russian-backed former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych for more than a decade.

"The Trump campaign worked behind the scenes last week to make sure the new Republican platform won’t call for giving weapons to Ukraine to fight Russian and rebel forces, contradicting the view of almost all Republican foreign policy leaders in Washington."

“Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump’s son, Donald Jr., told a real estate conference in 2008... “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

"Since the 1980s, Trump and his family members have made numerous trips to Moscow in search of business opportunities, and they have relied on Russian investors to buy their properties around the world. ... his debt load has grown dramatically over the last year, from $350 million to $630 million."

The dots are all here. It's just a matter of connecting them.

There is serious reason to believe that Trump, if elected, would be seriously compromised by his business and personal ties to Vladimir Putin and Russian financiers.

The delicious irony of watching all the people who painted Mitt Romney as a Cold War relic now ****ting their pants about Russia.

Hillary is a scumbag and your party is falling apart. Deal with it.

Take it one step further. Mitt Romney said Russia is our number one geopolitical enemy. Romney also emerged as perhaps Trump's strongest critic among the Republicans. I suspect Mitt knows that Trump is compromised by Putin/Russia. Wealthy elite run in small circles, Mitt would know.

I think we can probably trust the Russians over warmongering Hillery. Maybe Trump will ease the diplomatic tension and put an end to the cold war itch, once and for all.
