Why hasn’t anyone asked if there a tie to Trump’s indictments and his Russian’s ties?

Trump may owe his election in 2016 to Russian military intelligence operations, which supplied his campaign with Hillary Clinton’s email.

Trump has a record of contact with Russia Putin going back over 30 years. Investigative journalist Craig Unger goes deep in his book, American Kompromat, to lay out a comprehensive theory to connect all the dots.

Based on his interviews with former KGB officials, Unger argues that the Trump-Russia link began as far back as the 1980s; among the early clues: were the purchase of TV sets from a small Russian merchant for Trump’s first hotel project in New York and the KGB connections of Trump’s first wife, Ivana, andher family in her native Czechoslovakia.

One of his KGB sources reveals damning details about Trump’s first trip to the then-Soviet Union in 1987, why Trump was a perfect target for recruitment in spite of his incompetence, and his tendency to say the quiet parts out loud.

To place this accusation in context, Unger links it to what he calls a Russian “kompromat factory,” whose workings involve, among others, Jeffrey Epstein, Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine Maxwell, Israeli intelligence, and many of Rudy Giuliani’s “friends” inside the FBI.

Although proof of these secret connections remains buried in the Kremlin, Unger claims to have FBI files to back up some of his assertions.

Based on the available evidence, Trump’s indebtedness to Moscow can no longer be doubted, he argues. With implications for large-scale global money laundering and national security, Unger concludes that Trump is a security risk even out of office. Who might Trump have shared the documents he failed to return and for which he is now under indictment?

Michael Cohen, his former attorney, engaged in negotiations for a Trump Tower in 2016 while Trump said, ” I have no financial relationships with Russia.”   Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, managed the campaign of the candidate for President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, who called for closer ties with Russia while disguising his Russian connections. Trump surrounded himself with staffers and Manafort, with close ties to Russia. His national security adviser, Michael Flynn went to Moscow in 2015 to fête Putin at a banquet; Charges against Flynn were subsequently dropped by Attorney General Bar.  Roger Stone, a former longtime business partner of Manafort’s, was also convicted and pardoned.  Manafort was convicted of tax and bank fraud. -money laundering.

Found in archives that show Russian accounts helped spread QAnon in volume beginning in December 2017, reut.rs/2TFWoWc. Russian government-backed social media accounts nurtured the QAnon conspiracy theory in its infancy, accounting for approximately 17,000 Tweets.

Parler, the right-wing social media haven, was booted off Amazon and Apple. Where it does it land? Parler is back up, and being hosted by “DDOS GUARD” out of Russia. Connections like this leave little to the imagination.

Trump claimed he was tougher on Russia than any President. While he has imposed 52 sanctions, he doesn’t say that in 2017, he signed a sanctions law but never enforced it. 2018 he issued several sanctions but later offered to negotiate and soften them. Trump has a record of contact with Putin going back over 30 years/Searching Google; there are numerous reports of Trump wanting to meet face-to-face with Putin before the election.

The most charitable explanation for his seemingly suspicious behavior is what his niece, Mary Trump, wrote in her book Too Much and Never Enough that Trump has “unique personality flaws make him highly vulnerable to manipulation by smarter, more powerful men.”
