Trump and Putin

One of the most interesting things about Trump is his affinity for Putin and Russia. Much has been written about him and I wanted to collect a few to get a bigger picture of his Russia ties.

Jeff Sessions testified that he had no contact with Russians during his confirmation but he did..

Great podcast discussing his ties to Russia.

Trump’s campaign asked to have the RNC platform language against Russia for it’s invasion of Ukraine softened. It was one of the only issues the campaign weighed in on.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was paid by a pro-Kremlin Ukrainian political group.

Michael Flynn had contact with Russian ambassador the day of the Obama sanctions and was fired due to it.

Trump’s son says they have significant holdings in Russia.

A person who worked for Trump met with a Ukrainian contact and received a supposed Ukraine Russia peace deal.

And of course the Michael Steele produced dossier on supposed Trump Russian dealings.

Another fun tidbit..

“The study also compared flight records of Trump’s campaign plane and a plane used by one of the oligarchs. During the campaign, the two planes often were at the same airports at the same time.”

“The records Henry combed through shows that Ross and his team invested more than $1 billion in the troubled Bank of Cyprus. Ross became one of two vice chairman of the bank. Putin appointed the other.”
