    What's most interesting is nowhere in the news is anybody even mentioning the $400 million in Russian funds allegedly given to Hillary's campaign.

    Literally, the media is completely ignoring it. They are not even trying to prove or disprove it. They just pretend it was never mentioned.

    Gee, why WOULDN'T Trump trust all the people who claim that he hired Russian hookers to pee on Obama's bed?

    Well it looks like Trump is ignoring it, isn't he???

    He is in charge of the Justice Department and the FBI, why does he not ask for a special investigation to follow up on your allegations? He controls the WH, the Congress and the Senate, why does TRUMP DO NOTHING other than complain about Hillary?

    Is he so weak? Is he a wimp? Is he scared of Hillary?

    Trump wasn't bought? Not by Americans but he seems to have a receipt from the Kremlin in his pocket.

    Great joint press conference from Helsinki. I especially liked the part where Trump talked while Putin drank a glass of water.

    No, he is smart enough to know that he has the power to throw many of his political opponents in jail, but that the optics of that would be absolutely horrible.

    Imprisoning all of your political opponents is something that Hitler or Stalin would do. That's why Trump won't go near it - he is far more ethical and reasonable than that, and he respects the democratic process and a peaceful transition of power (which is something his opponents should do).

    That's a BS answer.

    A legal and investigation and public hearings are perfectly OK and I would even encourage a transparent process. If it is proven that Hillary took money from foreign sources including the Russians, LOCK HER UP! My position has remained consistent on this. Anyone who took money or in kind assistance in the election should be locked up. Those who have done nothing wrong have nothing to fear.

    So why is Trump so scared?

    you mean like he respects a contract and wouldn't stiff someone he owes money to? like he respects the courts (outside of using them to declare bankruptcy so as not to pay his debts)? like he respects women? like he respects "fine people" on both sides? like he respects immigrants and their families? like he respects his allies? trump won't go near it because he knows he wouldn't get away with it, not because of ethics and reason.

    I responded to this the last time you pointed this out but you ignored it. That accusation happens to be very convenient for both Trump and Putin, and there is zero proof it happened. The accused is also a british citizen, so it's pretty much impossible for him to donate to an American Political campaign.

    You just keep parroting your God King, everyone who criticizes him has to be wrong, and the ones worship him are clearly in the know.

    Do you even understand why no one trusts Putin? His word is essentially meaningless

    Like his hero, he prefers to accept everything that Putin says and ignore reality.

    Putin's Pants-on-Fire claim about $400 million donation to Clinton from Bill Browder partners

    Russian President Vladimir Putin offered a novel idea to advance the Russia investigation during a joint news conference with President Donald Trump in Helsinki.


    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team could come to his country, Putin said, if Russian investigators were allowed to go the United States to dig into alleged tax evasion by American-born financier Bill Browder and his associates.


    "Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over 1.5 billion dollars in Russia," Putin said through a translator. "They never paid any taxes."


    Putin continued.


    "They sent a huge amount of money, over 400 million, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton," he said. "Well, that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal."


    Did Browder's associates send $400 million to Hillary Clinton's campaign?


    No. We found $17,700 donated to Clinton and another $297,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

    It's all because of me! Me, I tell you! ME! Even before I was "elected" I got NATO to increase spending! That's how awesome I am! Why don't you ever report on that? Sad!


    Trump lashes out at media coverage of his Putin meeting

    “While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia. Sadly, it is not being reported that way - the Fake News is going Crazy,” the president tweeted.

    ---

    "“I had a great meeting with NATO. They have paid $33 Billion more and will pay hundreds of Billions of Dollars more in the future, only because of me,” the president tweeted earlier on Tuesday. “NATO was weak, but now it is strong again (bad for Russia). The media only says I was rude to leaders, never mentions the money!“


    NATO spending, however, has been going up since 2014, prior to Trump‘s first meeting with NATO in 2017. It is unclear where Trump got the $33 billion figure"

    Trump reads prepared statements today that contradict what he clearly stated yesterday in Helsinki as a clear attempt to control the damage he did to his presidency..

    He then undermines his own contradictions.

    Trump flips – then flips again – a day after downplaying Russian interference
    President says he supports US intelligence consensus on 2016 election – but then says ‘it could be other people also’
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...it-republicans
    Donald Trump sought to reverse course on Tuesday, after top Republicans scrambled to distance themselves from his behavior in his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.


    Even then, Trump could not resist muddying the waters further. Speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, the president stated that he accepted the assessment of US intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election – and then, moments later, cast doubt on who was responsible.


    “Let me be totally clear in saying that … I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place,” Trump said, reading from a prepared script. He then added: “It could be other people also. There’s a lot of people out there.”


    On Monday, Trump met Putin with only interpreters in attendance for two hours then held a press briefing in which he sided with the Kremlin and against US intelligence services.


    Back on US soil, Trump claimed the fury that greeted his display was the result of a misspoken word. Citing the transcript of his remarks, Trump said his assertion that he did not see “any reason why it would be Russia” behind election inference should have been: “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.”


    “So you can put that in,” he said.


    Trump said much more in Helsinki. Standing beside Putin, he said: “I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.” He also repeated conspiracist-tinged complaints about a Democratic National Committee server and the FBI.


    On Tuesday, Trump had made handwritten notes to his script. According to a copy shared by a CNN reporter, these included a misspelling: “There was no colusion”.


    Trump also said his decision to meet Putin as the result of “the firm conviction that diplomacy and engagement is better than hostility and conflict”.


    Before Trump spoke, Republicans struggled to defend him on Capitol Hill. House speaker Paul Ryan told reporters: “They did interfere in our elections. It’s really clear. They should be no doubt about that. Russia is trying to undermine democracy itself.
