    Why would Putin want Trump?

    Let me tell you a little story...

    Whenever an American oligarch goes to Russia, Russia FSB(KGB) starts a file.

    They are always on the look out for influencers in America they can exploit.

    When Trump did a pageant in Russia, he came into their radar.

    They already had a big file on him when he declared his candidacy.

    They perceived he would lift the sanctions,

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/wh...ump-team-sought-lift-sanctions-russia-n767406

    and with Trump's appointment of Tillerson, that sealed their conviction their efforts to get Trump elected was the right thing for Russia to do.

    Why?

    Because he was the former CEO of Exxon, and Exxon had purchased the rights to develop 63.7 million acres in Russia's north seas/siberia, etc. I suspect it was no accident that Tillerson was appointed Secy of State.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/31/...-and-rosneft-partner-in-russian-oil-deal.html

    Mr. Putin had stated the potential investments by both companies to be as high as $500 billion, Exxon officials said the figures, at least initially, would more likely be in the tens of billions of dollars.

    And what is standing in the way of that development?

    Obama's sanctions. Trump wanted to lift the sanctions, but the republicans and democrats threated to override any veto,

    https://www.politico.com/story/2017/07/27/russia-sanctions-bill-senate-to-pass-241034
    so he was forced to implement them, but he dragged his feet, he slow walked them for about a year.

    Trump had hinted at lifting Sanctions,

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...ctory-looks-to-sanctions-relief-idUSKBN1342FJ

    Trump treated Putin obsequiously, Trump is an oligarch, they have a file on him, they perceived he might become their 'useful idiot', which, in my opinion, became true.

    Trump, clearly, was the man Putin favored, and this is backed up with hard documentation in the Mueller report.

    Is it any wonder Trump was investigated? They would have been derelict in their duty if they had NOT investigated him.

    For some reason all of the threads you start about Trump remind me of a song....



    And I haven't thought about that song in over 2 decades.

    Seriously...Conspiracy theories are thatta way -----------------------------------------> Please post all your Trump threads there.

    A short version of OP. Because Putin knew trump was a lying, cheating thief and he could use trump to his advantage.

    You'd have to have been living under a rock all year to believe it, "isn't true". The run up in prior weeks was well publicized, the speeches at the Ellipse was broadcast as was the attack on the Capitol. How can you believe it's not true?

    You didn't have a point other than to run to tRumps rescue. :roll:

    Simply because it is another irrational left wing narrative.

    Simply because obfuscation it the only hope conservatives have of sweeping Benedict Donald's coup attempt under the rug.

    WTF is the significance of "klooshun", is that some kind of demeaning slang used by ignorant southern conservatives?

    What’s really ignorant is assuming people are ignorant just because of their geographical location

    Most likely he wouldn't. There is no evidence that he did. I suspect he might have preferred squaring off against a woman who he would view as weaker than a businessman. Most likely he probably couldn't have cared less who won the election.

    And let's not forget the first week after the failed Trump coup, the republican (intentional small r) leadership actually lambasted him on the house and senate floors for being the cause.

    One nothing burger with a side of borscht please! One could argue that Hillary would have been good for the putster. Who knows? One thing that benefits the Putinator is a divided USA. Every tanTrump thread is working for Putin!
