I'd hope they were in contact. God forbid the nations of the world actually try to work together.
So basically... Trump creates diplomatic ties with Russia while Hillary accuses Russia of interfering with the election and threatens war against them
See how ridiculous it sounds?
I'd say there was at least a decent chance that Trump wasn't directly involved. If members of his campaign were working as operatives for or in collusion with, a foreign government , that's something that needs to be dealt with.
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!

Let's not get confused here. Putin is an expansionist...as long as he continues that we can never truly be friends. That's what our relationship with China is starting to strain. Their heads have gotten large and they are starting to show signs of expansionism. Putin will probably be involved in WW3 one way or another, and the USA will undoubtedly side against him.
Here we go again. The biggest provider of ignorance is at it again.
You lie, and you lie, and you lie more.
Speaking to Bloomberg News, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said staffers at the Russian Embassy in Washington met with members of Trump’s campaign — meetings she described as “normal practice.” Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign refused similar requests for meetings, Zakharova told the agency.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Trump got disqualified to be president.
Is that possible?

So now the Russians are believable?
Make up your mind..
Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia.
Contrary to earlier reporting in the New York Times, which cited FBI sources as saying that the agency did not believe that the private server in Donald Trump’s Trump Tower which was connected to a Russian bank had any nefarious purpose, the FBI’s counter-intelligence arm, sources say, re-drew an earlier FISA court request around possible financial and banking offenses related to the server. The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.
It must be stressed that Heat Street’s report is not confirmed fact, and if its report and theory is proven true, it does not point to use of the FISA warrant for a criminal arrest of Donald Trump at this time either. A secret FISA warrant authorizes covert electronic intelligence gathering of a US person by the FBI, and it is issued by a secret panel of federal judges in Washington, D.C. without participation of the target being surveilled in the hearing. Louise Mensch’s exclusive report contains a series of logical and plausible theories which must be viewed skeptically until the first sentence is proven to be true:
Again, it cannot be stressed enough that this is a difficult to confirm the essential facts of this report of the FBI surveilling Donald Trump’s email server. The corroborating news reports both provide a plausible theory to Mensch, but also should cause the reader to draw conclusions skeptically because Heat Street’s report could fit the publicly known facts all too well, but still be factually false.
It’s also notable that Mensch was a Republican for Hillary before endorsing McMullin. That doesn’t make her much different than any member of the news media registered as a Republican, like the boards of numerous conservative newspapers in America who endorsed Hillary Clinton based on the facts available. Readers should also take into account Mensch’s personal history of histrionic statements, trolling and reported substance issues which may make her an unreliable news source, when evaluating the source of this report to decide if it’s plausible, although none of that takes away from the sound logic of the ‘big picture’ of her claims in the Heat Street report. If it’s a lie or misinformation, certainly every piece of the puzzle is confirmed elsewhere or fits known facts, except for one.

Russia has been sowing seeds of alt-right nationalism across the EU in order to cause chaos and inflame tensions. Russian money and intelligence has been fed to anti-EU, pro-nationalist, alt-right groups in Finland and the UK...and here in the USA.
