The firm is touted for pioneering the use of technology in political campaigns, and it represents GOP candidates nationwide. The firm's website said one of its principles was formerly associated with a firm operated by Paul Manafort, who is the former Trump campaign manager whose business dealings with Russia are under intense scrutiny.
"The president, obviously, was aware of Senator Graham's suggestion after he made it today and he's fine with that. He has no business in Russia. He has no connections to Russia. So he welcomes that," Spicer said. "In fact, he is already charged a leading law firm in Washington, D.C., to send a certified letter to Senator Graham to that point that he has no connections to Russia," Spicer said.
Stone and Manafort, two of President Donald Trump’s former senior advisors who are now being investigated by the FBI for possible collusions with Russia during the 2016 presidential election campaign, are the co-founders of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, the political consulting firm where Whitfield served as a the director in the later part of his career

What do the Liberals have against the russians in the first place? They apparently want and love communism but they hate Russia the birthplace of communism. This makes no sense. What's up with that?
The authors detail how Clinton went out of her way to pass blame for her stunning loss on “Comey and Russia.” “She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying. The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded: That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

We'll have to wait until the FBI is done.
I think it speaks volumes to the situation Trump is in when he as President needs to hire a law firm to write a letter to a Senator. I understand why his support base is trying to stay steadfast, but let's be real; POTUS tweets random bull snip on a near nightly basis, he's more worried about how he looks for the cameras than about what he's doing for the American people, he openly attacks media outlets who criticize him... The list goes on.
If the FBI finds some hard evidence linking any of his staff to Russia you can bet there will be legal action against him. We just have to allow the FBI to do their thing.
Liberals don't want communism. Communists want Communism. Communists don't want Despotic Communism (USSR).
Why is the Right terrified their culture will vanish if a little Mexican girl is granted citizenship as an adult because her parents brought her here illegally when she had no choice, yet are perfectly okay with a foreign government influencing our election process?
The Federal Bureau of Investigation cannot tell us what we need to know about Donald Trump’s contacts with Russia. Why? Because doing so would jeopardize a long-running, ultra-sensitive operation targeting mobsters tied to Russian President Vladimir Putin — and to Trump.
I'm not a Trump hater nor am I trying to warp reality.
Actually Trump is not under investigation, if they find something funky with his staff - then the staff member gets in trouble not him. I love how all you Trump haters are trying to warp reality to suit your desire for the downfall of Trump - it just makes you look pathetic.

The problem here is that the GOP congress will let Trump dam near get away with murder.
The only way Trump can be dealt with if its found he has done something illegal is impeachment.
Or the 25th amendment where the VP and his close advisors get together and invoke it and retire Trump. This angle is very unlikely.
So the only hope if Trump is exposed as a criminal is impeachment and that wont happen with a republican congress and senate.
