    There is no Russian connections. This is a ploy by the Dems to try to get their base riled up for the midterm and to try to get Trump impeached. Trump made an inappropriate Joke last year by saying that Russians should hack more emails. That joke is the only thing the Dems have on Trump and Russia. The accusation of racism, sexism, xenophobia didn't work so this their last resort.

    And the Russian people don't trust Putin because he has ties to America.

    The biggest clue off is how this guy came up with the r****ded wire tap claim as soon as Session's stuff came out. The deflection is real.

    Dude. More than half this BBS knows you are actually a Russian, so it is pretty ****ing funny that you would type this for your friend Trump. Join date November 2015. LOLOL.

    No rations for you, comrade! Try harder!

    PRO TIP, for the next BBS you infect: you have to get subject and verbs to agree. So, repeat after me, "There are no Russian connections (sic)."

    This could stand to be a little more descriptive. One could have conceivably drawn the same graph and inferences with respect to Bill Clinton and that PRC fundraising nonsense from twenty years ago. "No controlling legal authority," remember when middle-aged print journalists could start memes?

    Could Democrat Senators, congressmen claim Trump is a Russian spy? Using the same Trump logic claiming Obama bugged him? Who needs proof anyway!

    Rex Tillerson really should be marked in Red coming from Putin's side of the equation on the graph. He's a close associate of Putin, and has been given the highest civilian foreign honor the Russian govt can give. Trump also never met him until he was nominated for Sec.

    Its completely obvious that Tillerson is there as Putin's hand in our government. Look at what has already happened. Our State department has already been gutted, and the budget almost cut in half. Its obvious that Putin is trying to weaken our influence around the world. Then you have Bannon & Trump spewing nonsense about Nationlism to sell the US right wing nutcases.

    For Tillerson its strictly business. more than 60% of the drilling land rights that Exxon owns is in Russia. Both Exxon & Russian oil stand to make over HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS collectively by simply getting the US govt & NATO to remove sanctions on Russia. This is just a no-brainer theory that is incredibly obvious. Its about the money here obviously.

    I'm not a big tin foil hat conspiracy theorist. Sure I watch a youtube video or two about how the Twin Towers could have been a big conspiracy & love JFK conspiracy theories, but I never buy into conspiracy theories. This one though is just incredibly obvious. So obvious that I can't believe more people just don't see the obvious hammer hitting them in between the eyes.

    Trump is Putin's puppet. Make no mistake about that.

    iirc,
    Trump had interviewed Romney several times for the Sec of State post; then, in the last minute,
    out of left field, he picked Tillerson, whom he has never met.​

    Tillerson was an odd choice, but I don't think I believe he's some kind of Putin surrogate. A bit hard to say it's about the money since (1) he's rich already, (2) he has divested what Exxon stock he has, (3) stock options he has coming to him in the future will be delivered in non-oil stocks (though the size of the value will still be dependent on Exxon's value at the time, I think), and (4) he can't return to working in oil and gas without surrendering those options for the next 10 years (at the end of which time, he'll be 74). Of course, Putin can always squirrel money away for him in Panama or something. Even so, doing business with Russia when you're an oil exec is hardly noteworthy. He might be sympathetic to Putin, or prefer an amoral approach to Russian relations, but I see no reason to believe he'd put Russian interests above his own country's.
