Trump and Russia

'
Having consistently logged onto Russia Today during 2016, I can say without doubt that the Russians strongly supported Trump at every opportunity.

Any aware person knows that when Trump was going bankrupt, no American bank would extend a loan to that slimy swindler --- no one would touch him with a ten-foot pole!

However, Trump got loans from Russian oligarchs through Deutsche Bank and managed to survive.

No one less naive than an infant would imagine that the Russians didn't get their pound of flesh from Trump in return --- and infantile Trump certainly was putty in the hands of much more clever Russian interests.

However, Russian influence on the American election was far, far less than the interference of the US government and Deep State on countless other countries since the US started rampaging around the world after World War II.

If you want to find real interference in US elections, look rather at the hacking of voting machines by sinister right-wing American groups!

As long as there are not paper-trails to check voting machine results, it must be said that there is no functioning democracy in the United States.

The allegations are mainly relied on the now-infamous Steele dossier, the document prepared by former British spy Christopher Steele who alleged the existence of a conspiracy between Donald Trump and the Russian government. The dossier was indirectly funded by the Clinton campaign, which is a clear sign that Democrats are trying to dethrone President Trump.

Quote:
The dossier contains multiple allegations, some of which are currently unverified and others for which possible verification is classified.[10] Natasha Bertrand has stated that it "alleges serious misconduct and conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia's government", and that, quoting the dossier, the "well-developed conspiracy of co-operation between [the Trump campaign] and the Russian leadership was managed on the Trump side by the Republican candidate's campaign manager, Paul Manafort."[17]

The memos allege that Russia has been cultivating a relationship with Trump for decades, that the Kremlin favored Trump in the U.S. presidential election, and took various actions during the 2016 election to promote his candidacy and oppose Hillary Clinton's. The document claims that several of Trump's associates, in particular campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump's personal attorney Michael D. Cohen, and Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page, worked with Russian contacts to promote Trump's candidacy. Alleged activities include planning the hack of Democratic National Committee emails and their subsequent leaking, arranging coverups and cash payments, and promising favorable policies toward Russia if Trump was elected. The document also claims that Russian operators possessed compromising information about Trump which could make him subject to blackmail.

The dossier and the investigations preceding it were part of opposition research on Trump. The investigation into Trump was initially funded by a conservative political website before Steele was involved, and later was funded by Democrats.[19][20][2][21]
