Honestly, don't don't interpret this article incorrectly, I'm not saying Donald Trump isn't connected financially through Russia. Might there be some corruption there? Perhaps, but when you have a corrupt Government where the influence of money in politics has plagued our entire system that's just bound to happen, we have run of the mill corruption all of time in this country. I don't condone this corruption, but I honestly don't think the Establishment Democrats have any room to criticize the corruption of others. Also on the LONG laundry list of terrible shit Trump has done & should be called out for IF there's any Russian corruption it's about a two out of ten on the "bad shit" scale.
Let's be honest, the biggest reason Russia is even in the news nowadays is because the Democrats needed a scapegoat to blame for losing to an easily beatable lying Right Wing Neo-Consertive Authoritarian Fascist (Recent War Criminal) clown. It's the Establishment Democrats that even allowed Trump to become President when they pushed an unelectable lying Right Wing Neo-Liberal Corporate Establishment Fascist war criminal down our throats by rigging the Democratic Primary against Bernie Sanders who would have won in a landslide.
At this moment there is no evidence of corruption between Donald Trump & Russia, & until they're is solid evidence, all of this crying about Russia is nothing more than hysteria. This is why the Establishment Democrats won't stop pushing the Russia narrative, while completely ignoring Trump's ACTUAL mass corruption in places like Saudi Arabia or with the big banks & corporations. It's because the Establishment Democrats love that corruption, & they can't wait to do that same exact corruption the very second they get back in office.
If someone like myself was head of the Democratic Party, I would know exactly how to attack Trump so I could get more Progressive/Liberal Democrats elected, this Russia nonsense doesn't connect with the American people & it's not going to. You have to attack Trump on policies the American people are personally affected by. You can attack him on his corruption, but it's got to be corruption with evidence. For example Trump registered 8 new businesses in Saudi Arabia during the campaign. Now as President, Trump is currently doing all kinds of "infrastructure" & "weapon" deals with Saudi Arabia. I would talk about the corruption of the how Trump has appointed the head of Exxon Mobil to his administration, or several heads of Goldman & Sachs to his administration. I would talk about how Trump put Betsy DeVos in his administration, DeVos believes public schools are a cancer on our system, & also believes exclusively in private schools & that only the super rich should be allowed to give their children an education.
Statistics show a majority of people in this country believe marijuana should be legalized, so I would talk about Trump putting Jeff Sessions in his administration. We all know how marijuana isn't a dangerous gateway drug to heroin or krokodil. Yet Sessions makes these types of gateway drug arguments all the time. Sessions advocated that we have the death penalty for individuals even just for selling marijuana, even supported legislation to do exactly that. Also I would criticize Sessions for saying good things about the Ku Klux Klan, in fact the only real bad thing Session's has ever said about the Ku Klux Klan was that the KKK was "OK... until I found out they smoked pot."
I would talk about the fact that Trump's first military action was a raid that got absolutely no terrorist but killed an innocent nine year old little girl. I would talk about the fact that Trump said he would torture "EVEN IF IT DOESN'T WORK." I would talk about the fact that Donald Trump admitted that he would kill innocent civilians. I would talk about the fact that the very first thing Trump did as president was sign an executive order to raise taxes on the middle class. I would talk about the fact that when there were plans to get rid of NAFTA, Donald Trump stop those plans & kept NAFTA implemented.
I would talk about how The American Healthcare Act (TrumpCare) would leave 52 million people uninsured, kick 24 million people who are already on their health care off of their Healthcare, cut taxes by 592 billion dollars for the super wealthy, cut Medicaid by 880 billion dollars, & bring back insurance company's ability to drop people due to pre-existing conditions, & even adding new pre-existing conditions like domestic violence or rape.
I would talk about how Trump bombing in Syria could potentially spark World War 3. I would talk about how Trump signed a pledge to crack down on all pornography. I would talk about the fact Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement. I would talk how the Estate tax (Which Trump is also pushing) is nothing more than a tax cut for the super wealthy, for example it would effectively give the most wealthiest family in the entire world (The Walton family) a 52 million dollar tax cut. To put that in perspective the Walton family alone has more wealth than the entire bottom 40% of the entire country! Do you want to know why the Establishment Democrats don't mention pretty much any of this? It's because they mostly agree on all of it, they have many of the same donors who pushed much of the same agenda.
So at least until you have some shred of evidence, PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT RUSSIA ALREADY!!!
