He was offering to update his Russian colleagues during the campaign
and trying to figure out how best to monetize his position.
if/when hard evidence
The most Pro-Russian president of my lifetime? One bending over in Ukraine? One loathe to level sanctions unanimously passed by Congress against Russia? An America retrenching to isolationism, alienating allies, and running from its spot of "leader of the free world"? Civil unrest and divisiveness in the US itself? The gift of an ineffectual government in your largest adversary?
In the meantime, we DO have hard evidence of DNC crimes regarding HRC's campaign. We also have plenty of hard evidence of HRC's past crimes.
Rew saysOh, I think Dems are seeking to protect and ensure all leads are chased: Great. Then you agree w Trey Gowdy that we should investigate Hillary and the DNC for money laundering and campaign finance violations. Ya know because $12 million invested secretly via a law firm violates the spirit of campaign finance law and is a major red flag for money laundering amongst a myriad of other crimes. Trey Gowdy described both the scale and method as "unheard of" .

Lets say all of this is true and not just your fever dream... How does any of this help Russia?
Follow the money and influence. Putin and the Russians are nowhere near the most direct beneficiaries of civil unrest as blamed on trump by the left .
Trump is simply a showman interested in being on TV and liked.Or do you really believe he is trying to save the American middle class?
The rest is a typical attitude of those who don't know, or would like to believe Naval service isn't forward deployed, engaged with the enemy, and somehow "less risky" than boots on the ground. To date for 2017, we have lost more on ships than in Afghanistan.
Can you say the same of Trump? ;)
I don't mean to be insulting, but do you really not understand how nation states compete with one another?
Pure. Hard. Evidence.
?? What was he doing during the campaign??
By your logic, if the USA is simply in competition with other nation states AND the USA having problems equates to a benefit for other nation states, then again why is Russia singled out?
There is a mountain of hard evidence for HRC corruption.
Legally, Trump is not in any way under investigation by Mueller or anyone else. The talking heads seem to forget that fact.
Um... please explain how Antifa attacking any wrong thinker creates a motive for Russia.
Throw anyone in prison who is guilty. IDGAF about Trump.
Due almost entirely to episodes of poor seamanship ...
They've all been too consumed looking for FAKE Russian collusion.
bob2356 saysTrump has been president 10 months now with the investigative resources of the entire federal government at his disposal along with your claim of a mountain of hard evidence and hillary hasn't even been looked into at all. They've all been too consumed looking for FAKE Russian collusion.Please keep up.

How come donald lock her up trump and jeff lock everyone up sessions haven't done anything?
They don't have a means to slay that dragon and the dragon is more useful as foe that they can defend the people from. "rabble rabble rabble"
Kinda like Russia. Even though from a mix of Population, Industrial Might, etc. China is a far bigger threat.
While an adversary in the Pacific, China is relatively tethered to the US success as being part of its own ... and vice a versa. Economies are locked in a M.A.D. paradigm of their own.
Russia has no such general constraint, and is far more active in its testing, provocations, and attacking US interest.
Big Myth: Wars between big trading partners make up a large number of Wars. UK, France and Germany were huge trading partners, as was US and Japan and UK and China.
Helping an ally of 40-50 years ...
unless you want the Jihadis to win like Obama did.
curious2 saysthe Russian government isn't looking to form.... Putin seeks....@Rew, you might really like PBS Frontline's latest report on that topic, but contrast it with Oliver Stone's interviews if you have time.Rew saysYou think suddenly the Navy forgot how to steer the boats?Since you have asked me a direct question, here is what I think:"USS FITZGERALDThe collision between Fitzgerald and Crystal was avoidable and resulted from an accumulation of smaller errors over time, ultimately resulting in a lack of adherence...

I think you mean to say the myth is that trading partners do not go to war. Yes. That it is a myth. What is not true is that economic relations play no effect what so ever. The closer ties and relationships countries have, generally, the more peaceful they are toward one another.
Slow the time car down TwoScoops. You cannot scrub past recent history so fast. That ally has been our chief rival since the late 40s, and that, not our previous "enemy of my enemy alliance" is what is pertinent and dictating now to our current foreign relations with Russia. The sides drawn up post WWII, with whomever was with the USSR or USA, defined the past 50 years and was the balance of world powers.
You don't find being more like Russia domestically a very anti-American stance? I'm not sure what else to call it.
What we should be doing in weakening Germany, that we fought two world wars with, that is slowly dominating Europe economically and thus politically
A US-Russian Alliance would almost monopolize nuclear weapons
A stronger China puts the Pacific in jeopardy, we must stop transferring technology and outsourcing manufacturing there.
Tell me about democracy in Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, etc. etc. Indonesia and Malaysia aren't that great either. Singapore is a one-party state literally run by a single extended family. Yet all have (More or Less) cooperative relationships with the USA.
The McCarthyism, not even based in ideology, is getting both dull and shrill.
