The Russians very well may be the source of Trump’s leaked tax returns and damning videotape.
Reporter David Fahrenthold received both the returns and the video from an anonymous tipster — no one knows who the source is — not even Fahrenhold himself. It is conceivable that Putin is behind the effort to destroy Trump. The releases of emails related to Hillary Clinton have done almost nothing to her campaign except allow her campaign to blame Russia — perhaps those releases have been false flag operations to hide the fact that Putin really wants to prevent Donald Trump from assuming office. Hillary has shown she’s not willing to stand up to Russia — see Crimea. Trump, on the other hand, would likely go to war to protect America’s interest related to Russia.
