    Good list in the Washington Post of 18 of the activities that indicate that Trump is a traitor. Here are a few examples, more are listed in the link to the article.

    • Trump has a long financial history with Russia. As summarized by Jonathan Chait in an invaluable New York magazine article: “From 2003 to 2017, people from the former USSR made 86 all-cash purchases — a red flag of potential money laundering — of Trump properties, totaling $109 million. In 2010, the private-wealth division of Deutsche Bank also loaned him hundreds of millions of dollars during the same period it was laundering billions in Russian money.
    • The Russians interfered in the 2016 U.S. election to help elect Trump president.
    • There were, according to the Moscow Project, “101 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia linked operatives,” and “the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them.”
    • Once in office, Trump fired Comey to stop the investigation of the “Russia thing” — and then bragged about having done so to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister while also sharing with them top-secret information. Later, Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions because he would not end the special counsel investigation that resulted after the firing of Comey. As Lawfare editor Benjamin Wittes argues, “the obstruction was the collusion”
    • Like no previous president, Trump attacks and undermines the Justice Department and the FBI (“a cancer in our country”) — two institutions that stand on the front lines of combatting Russian espionage and influence operations in the United States.
    • Trump defends the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and repeats other pro-Russian talking points.

    IMHO, those who are suffering from deep TDS are the true Russian assets...

    I really don't think that the Russians ever really intended to put Trump in the White House.

    They knew him well. And that alone, is a very strong argument against their using him as a manchurian candidate.

    He's arrogant, he won't listen to anyone, he doesn't know how to make a deal, and tries to cover up his shortcomings and insecurities by lying about everything. He's a petulant ten year old.

    The Russians have know this for years. They've known about him ever since the Brighton Beach crowd started going to Atlantic City to launder their money in his casinos, where they saw how dependent Trump was on their business.

    Fast forward almost ten years, Fred is gone, and Donald has gone through most of the family money and is selling off dad's holdings to cover his losses. The Russians show up with a Trump Soho deal, that doesn't go anywhere, but sets the stage for Trump and his new Russian partners.

    It is my belief that Trump has made his living for the last ten or fifteen years operating as a front for Russian money launderers, and whoever else needed the service. Russian money launderers were there when the Trump Tower opened, even before the casinos. .

    That's all Trump was to the Russians, a money launderer. They put up with his ridiculous antics and punked him pretty regularly.

    And they gave him a lot of cash, which he used to buy golf courses, none of which seem to make any money.

    Then, Trump the television buffoon and all around front man, decides to run for President.............

    Ahh what a big change for you Tom. Now if what you say is even remotely true, Mules has him easy because Money laundering is very easy to trace back when you've got the tools Mules has at his disposal. The rest of your post sounds like jealous jibberish, Trump doesn't know how to make a deal blah blah blah you can't change history no matter how much you want too.

    Trump really is a lousy deal maker. If you don't know that, you don't know much about the public history of his business. His real estate career is a long list of bold projects, failed partnerships, unpaid bills, and defaults.

    He did go through is father's money. He does not own any part of his father's vast apartment empire.

    He has consistantly lied about his holdings, and has worked harder than any other PResidential candidate in US history to try and hide his financial dealings from scrutiny.

    No one in the commercial real estate industry thinks Trump is worth anywhere near what he claims. And his long history of lying about everything from the label on a steak to the number of stories in his buildings, mark him as he industry's leading bufoon.

    You're right. Mueller has the tools.

    Much to Trump's chagrin, so do the House Intelligence and Oversight and Government Reform Committees do too.

    We know because of:
    • Trump hitting Syria with Russia there
    • Trump green lighting the attack and killing of over 200 Russian mercenaries in the Middle East
    • Trump's new sanctions on Russian oligarchs
    • Trump hitting Germany publicly for their gas deal and dependency on Russia
    • Trump supporting the Ukraine against Russia

    ... it's real clear... if you have no damn brain in your head.

    Good idea. I think very likely they are the foreign company fighting Mueller in court.
