Will Russia and Ukraine Decide the Presidential Election in the U.S.?
This morning the media was hot on the trail of new revelations that Donald Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort received millions of dollars from the Viktor F. Yanukovych for his work for the Ukrainian president. Hillary Clinton calls the connections “disqualifying.” The big question is whether or not Manafort’s connections to Ukraine and Russia will somehow impact Donald Trump. This weekend the media grilled the Trump campaign suggesting that Manafort’s connection to the Ukraine and Russia meant that Trump was ALSO connected to Ukraine and Russia. Charlie Rose specifically suggested that Donald Trump’s tax returns (the ones he won’t release until after his audit) might show illegal payments from Ukraine and Russia — the Trump campaign denies any sort of payment or connection. At the end of the day we don’t know if Trump has any sort of connection to Russia or Ukraine — but we ought to be worried — very worried.
Of course it is old news, but we KNOW that Hillary Clinton has direct financial ties to both Russia and Ukraine. The New York Times reported back in 2015 that, “Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal”. The Russians and Ukrainians paid millions to the Clinton’s both directly and through their foundation for access and ultimate State Department approval for their takeover of half of the world’s Uranium production.
The Clinton Foundation’s “pay-to-play” tactics are well documented — and yet they are old news. We know about the Uranium deal, but were there other deals? Deals related to the prospect of a Clinton presidency? Do the Russians have evidence they’re withholding to blackmail Hillary?
Will 2016 be the first election in history where the Russians win either way?
