    Yeah that is the same article I posed, but I only posted that to prove they have evidence of him providing access to information of the President. The article from yesterday that is in the OP says more evidence has been found showing more money.

    I don't know if these liberals are just children or just hate Trump. These guys have been in multi national business and/or politics for decades they have connections with everyone.

    No one is looking at their connections to the UK or France for example. Before someone says those connections don't matter yes they do. They matter for perspective. If Trump or whoever only had ties to Russia and no one else it would be a concern, but if he has connections to everyone which he does the Russian connection isn't so bad.

    Gee, I haven't heard much of those Trump connections with Brazil, Uganda, Iceland, Madagascar, etc.
    I guess "everyone" really boils down to Russia and all those oligarchs wanting to launder their illicit money........LOL

    Well, you're "correct"......there nothing wrong with Trump's campaign manager laundering money for Russian thugs...and making a little profit on the side, promising access to the oval office.....

    You'd be better off bringing up Hillary......LOL

    Manafort, actually could be Trump's "out" in this mess....at least a 'partial out' on the collusion with the Russians part....

    Trump really did not go after Manafort as a campaign manager....at least that is what the investigation and journalistic investigations are showing....

    Manafort, went to a friend of Trump's and told him, he really needed to connect with Trump, and wanted the campaign manager job...

    the friend of trump recommended Trump meeting him...Trump did not know Manafort previous to this point( but I believe he was informed that Manafort had done previous work indirectly for Putin in the Ukraine)...

    Manafort's proposal to be Trump's campaign manager sent to Trump in a letter, said that Manafort was offering to be his campaign manager, FOR FREE, at no salary.

    Trump hired him....

    Manafort owed the Russian Oligarch, the right hand man of Putin, $60 million dollars, for loans this billionaire gave him, without putting up, any collateral and without any kind of payment arrangement and even without a due date of when to pay them back...other than whenever the Oligarch chose. STRANGE, eh?

    This is bad for Manafort because it appears that this was just "pay" for a major job he was doing for them, but being given this loan and depositing it in to his bank accounts and his two daughter's bank accounts, kept Manafort from having to claim the $60 million as income and avoided any US tax on it as income.... illegal, tax evasion!

    But let's get back to Manafort and Trump.... Manafort basically BEGGED to become his campaign manager, and when he did, he sent emails to the Oligarch regarding the Trump campaign manager position and said he could arrange a private meeting, where he could tell the oligarch the inside scoop on the Trump campaign....also in emails to a Manafort assistant from Manafort asking him to figure out a way, him being Trump's campaign manager, could help get him "WHOLE" with the Oligarch.....

    What the heck did that mean, "get whole" with the Oligarch he allegedly was given $60 million dollar on cough cough, loans....???

    So maybe, just a slight maybe...

    President Trump was being 'had' and manipulated by Manafort for the Russians via the Russian Oligarch...the Oligarch who is on record saying that there was no difference between his own goals and the goals of the Russian Government and Putin, that these goals are one and the same...

    Trump could have easily been snowed by Manafort and not known all of these money connections and loans and was just susceptible to the attention given by the Russians due to his business deals he had going to get a Trump tower in Moscow, and NOT because he wanted to hurt our Nation?

    Either thing is bad, but one is pure evil....to intentionally blow our nation up for Russia, the other is simply a blind eye to Russia due to his own greed and wanting a Trump tower deal in Moscow.... :p

    My guess is no one is looking into those since it doesn't fit the narrative.
