Tin Foil Doesn't Suit Me, But...

The release of the e-mails, damaging to the Clinton campaign, by Russians intrigued me. Particularly because of Trump's love of Putin and the recent meh attitude toward NATO. Josh Marshall is more than intrigued. I'll just put up the link. Because, hey read it all.

There's also a link to a WashPo article worth a read.

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.

“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, according to an account posted on the website of eTurboNews, a trade publication. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”


  1. I linked to the TPM report today. It'll take a while before people wake up to this, but when they do, it'll be interesting to see how the Goopers justify Trump's deep connections to the former Commie head of the KGB. In the Goopers universe, once a Commie, always a Commie, so how will they get around Trump's Commie connection???

  2. I feel the same way about this story that I did when Iran Contra was going on. I feel like a conspiracy theorist believing in it. Only thing to do do is look at just the stuff that's incontrovertible. And there seems to be a lot of that.
