Dubious friends of Donald Trump: the Russians4.5
Although still in its early days, Donald Trump’s presidency is coming under fire. The Russians are alleged to be in possession of sensitive information about Trump. And that exposes Trump to blackmail. Fake news, tweets Trump: “I have nothing to do with Russia – no deals, no loans, no nothing!” Trump swears he has no ties with the Russians. But is that actually the case?

For months, the FBI have been investigating Russian interference in the American presidential elections. ZEMBLA is investigating another explosive dossier concerning Trump’s involvement with the Russians: Trump’s business and personal ties to oligarchs from the former Soviet Union. Powerful billionaires suspected of money laundering and fraud, and of having contacts in Moscow and with the mafia. What do these relationships say about Trump and why does he deny them? How compromising are these dubious business relationships for the 45th president of the United States? And are there connections with the Netherlands? ZEMBLA meets with one of Trump’s controversial cronies and speaks with a former CIA agent, fraud investigators, attorneys, and an American senator among others.

All of this is unfolding as we speak. This report is spot on. Trump is toast.

It has been pretty clear for a very long time that Trump has questionable finance sources. American banks will not touch him. He has also worn out his welcome with all the banks in western Europe. Russia has the only banks he can do business with. If he would show us his Tax returns he could clear this all up so why doesn't he do it?

Thank you to the Dutch media. They are willing to do what our own media won't. Looking forward to the next installment.

Living in the Tri state area, we were well aware of this clown before he got that stupid show.He himself is the biggest threat to this country. Senators and Congress persons will be responsible for the damage to this country for the time Donny the weathly clown is in the oval office. " Protect against pretend patriotism" George Washington quote seems to be appropriate for whats going on today.

Trump is such a liability now to some really corrupt and dangerous thugs, I think he has to worry about them trying to silence him before he gets squeezed and throws them under the bus as this investigation goes further. can you imagine how badly he wants this investigation to be closed? He's probably more scared of these crazy mobster's than the FBI.

Trump in NYC was a disaster in business, a Crook and Conman.

This video appears to be well researched and thorough, with original sleuthing to reach the principals and also recognized authors and lawyers close enough to the situation to have opinions that matter.  So this looks credible, comprehensive and confirming a long, deep and possibly nefarious relationship between Trump and Russia/Putin/Oligarch operatives.

Both videos (The Russians and King of Diamonds) are impressive pieces of investigative journalism. If this is not the beginning of the end, I don't know what it takes. They link Trump, his name, his businesses, and his family with, well, all that we would expect and more: Russian oligarchs, international money-laundering, blood diamonds and, as icing on the cake, financing of the expansion of (illegal) Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. Judge for yourself, both documentaries are worth a watch in any case - if not for a window on how the world of plutocrats works. Left or right, red or blue, the question is : do we really want to live under their rule?

I don't want him impeached, I want his election disqualified and rendered null. I want all his decisions invalidated....With all this power hes accumulated it doesn't matter if hes impeached, he will still have too much power. I'm not going to argue this because I don't know the answers or solutions. I'm just stating how I feel.

G.O.P or Democrat it matters not, From any perspective Trump is undeniably foul and corrupt, awash in Russian mafia connections and cash.To deny this simple truth is on you, and an indicator of your cognitive perception and [lack of] intellect.The END.

All this is hiding in plain sight. Trump is a third rate con-man.

Author — yolowell


This is what a handful of researchers and reporters were able to dig up with no subpoena powers for a pittance of cash, imagine what the FBI could do if it was truly motivated and what an independent prosecutor could do with a billion dollar budget and the full power and resources of the US government?

We spend trillions of dollars on a military but leave ourselves totally open to a Russian criminal takeover of our nation through this evident Trump/Putin alliance. If there was no "there" there....then why is Trump so supportive and non critical of Putin? And why is Trump so afraid of any kind of genuine investigation into the Russian in our election and in our media and in our politics??? It appears that Putin is succeeding where Khrushchev failed. Who needs nukes when you have Donald Trump in he Oval Office?
