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.
I'm not a Trump hater nor am I trying to warp reality.

I'm following this story with increasing interest.

Why would Trump have surrounded himself with people like Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone?

He was swimming with the sharks.

Don't forget Flynn and Bannon. They will sell out trump in a heart beat to save their skins. Now even the Republicans are beginning to question Trumps connections...and not just with Russia.

Flynn had previously stated he would testify in exchange for immunity, a couple months back. I wonder what's going to happen now, if they strike another plea bargain with him.

Sure it is. Session's self recusal was because of his contacts with Sergey Kislyak.

The fact that Manafort and Page resigned before the election means very little when both resigned over suspicions that they were also talking with the Russians.

funny that a ambassador and part of his function to meet with sometimes. his recussal was un warranted but he did it to tyr to calm people but that only made it worse.

Exhibit H:

Both Putin and Trump are strongly nationalist, as is any Army officer, so they are trying to help their countries, instead of corporations, so they both cooperate on the inside. That is not a crime, it is protecting our sovereignty.

Do you have a problem with placing America first? Russia did not influence our policy whatsoever. We were merely communicating. Can you get that?

Trump was an Army Officer? When, what Army?...he went to military school. Not quite the same thing.

Nixon used those very words "America First" in his resignation speech.

I always place America first. I could give three poops about other countries.

It never stops surprising me how many right wing Trump supporters are so easily willing to dismiss Russia with out a second thought. In my opinion it's purely because Trump won. Had it been the other way around and Killary was in the chair I think your opinion would be much different.

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.


Here's another quote from your link:

The Russian mob has a breathtaking and underappreciated reach. It is so powerful that FBI Agent Peter Kowenhoven told CNN in 2009 that Semion Mogilevich, its “boss of bosses,” is a strategic threat, and a man who “can, with a telephone call or order, affect the global economy.”

US authorities came to see Mogilevich, who is described as close with Putin, as not only a danger to the financial system but a potential threat to world peace. He had access to stockpiles of military weapons and even fissionable material, snapped up as the Soviet Union fell apart.

His rumored ability to deliver the makings of weapons of mass destruction to the highest bidder — as well as his experience in smuggling opium from Afghanistan — would take on the very highest importance after 9/11, when European intelligence sources reported that al-Qaeda representatives had contacted Mogilevich in search of nuclear material.

It's pretty damn SAD when an actual conspiracy is flat out denied, ignored, and dismissed on a conspiracy website due to BLIND partisanship.

This is an interesting little item from the Guardian on line:

Trump's bid for Sydney casino 30 years ago rejected due to 'mafia connections’

Trump, in partnership with the Queensland construction company Kern, was one of four groups vying for the lucrative project. The NSW government dumped it from the process on 5 May 1987, along with two other bidders.

At the time, the state treasurer, Ken Booth, said he had received reports on the bids from the police board, the state’s Treasury, the Darling Harbour Authority, and an independent financial consultant.

“I wish to inform honourable members that in light of these reports the government has decided to eliminate three tenderers from further consideration,” Booth told the state parliament. “These are the HKMS consortium, the Federal-Sabemo consortium and the Kern-Trump consortium.”

. . .

Now, under rules that declassify NSW cabinet papers after 30 years, summaries of the various reports on the Kern/Trump bid have come to light.

. . . “Briefly stated, the Police Board considers that HKMS, Federal/Resorts/Sabemo, Kern/Trump, are unacceptable,” the summary of the police report said.

“Atlantic City would be a dubious model for Sydney and in our judgment, the Trump mafia connections should exclude the Kern/Trump consortium,” a summary of the police board’s report said.

This is not the Russian mob we're talking about, but anyone who knows anything at all about the casino industry will know that mafia connections run all through it.

This is what makes me certain that Donald Trump must be vulnerable to leverage from a number of unsavory sources, not just the Russians. He has spent his lifetime doing business with very questionable "businessmen".

Felix Sater. Trump's business associate who was prosecuted and pled guilty to stock fraud in a schem that involved the Semion Mogilevich arm of the Russian Lyuberetskaya crime group in Moscow... AKA the Russian mafia.

I'm sure this connection alone has the FBI foaming at the mouth. They've been after Mogilevich for years. The only reason the FBI took him off the top 10 is because of Putin's protection that allows him to love freely in Moscow.

Double posted. Please remove. I had forgotten I had already replied. Just at an earlier date. I'm getting older, apparently.
