    Lol this guy also donated to the Clinton Foundation:

    In fact, Vekselberg had (has?) a very close relationship with the Clintons.

    This is why I will not give up one of my second amendment rights.

    From 2007-2012 Democrats said Russia was our best friend and Romney was crazy for saying they were an enemy.

    He donated to the Clinton Foundation and was a friend of the Clintons.

    Thoughts?

    Not good enough. Give me your real thoughts on it.


    Why is Trump being harassed for this but not Clinton? Why does the Clinton Foundation get a pass for taking money from this guy?

    This Mueller witch hunt is partisan.

    Right? I think Trump makes a lot of mistakes, but threads like this resolve my semi-support for him and remind me that this Mueller probe is a PARTISAN WITCH HUNT.

    I mean a simple Google search shows articles all from 2016/2017 about this guy donating to Clinton and knowing them pretty well, but before the Left knew this they IMMEDIATELY criticized Trump and said "LOL TURMP IS CONTROLLED BY RUSSIANS AND CORRUPTION BE EXPENSIVE!!!11"

    They never wanted justice - they want Trump removed from office.

    This is setting aside that Clinton had other Russian connections and cash inflows directly to her and her husband.

    A Trumpista talking about "justice." Oh, my giddy aunt, we truly have fallen down the rabbit hole.

    The attorney for Stormy Daniels -- the porn star who received $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair she had with Trump a decade ago -- produced information Tuesday evening that appears to add further details to CNN's reporting. Michael Avenatti alleged that Cohen received half a million dollars from a company affiliated with Vekselberg in the months after the presidential election.

    How would he know that?

    So what do you think of the Clintons relationship with Velkseberg?

    Hillary's State Department also set up a meeting between Bill and Velkseberg.

    Then just four das after Secretary Cliton met with then President Medvedev in March 2010, Medvedev announced that Vekselberg would hold up a project that would create a "Silicon Valley" for Russia.

    neftegaz.ru/en/news/view/93752-Russian-Silicon-Valley-Skolkovo-project-will-be-coordinate-by-Russian-billionaire-Viktor-Vekselberg

    Then just one day after Secretary Clinton had a private phone call with John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, President Medvedev met with Cisco executives in California.

    And that same day, Vekselberg announced Cisco and Boeing would invest in the "Silicon Valley for Russia."

    https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/medvedev-gets-governator-backing-39293

    Isco paid Bill Clinton $256,000 for a speech in October 2010, just three months after Vekselberg's announcement that Cisco would invest $1 billion in the project.

    A whopping 17 of the 28 partners in the project also donated to the Clinton Foundation: http://sk.ru/net/partners/p/skpartnerslist.aspx

    BUT HILLARY!

    Lol. Every single thread, unbelievable.

    At this point, there's nothing the right will accept as collusion that doesn't involve Trump in an alley with a briefcase full of money. However, what the right says "muh" about has little bearing on what Mueller knows, and my guess is that these bits of information are nothing compared to what Mueller has found. Imagine if something damning on the Trump campaign team came out, they may as well as name that National Clinton Day, because you'll really be hearing about Hillary then.

    NBC is reporting this is just a claim by that lawyer. CNN on the other hand is doing their typical fake news. NBC is fake news too but they don't want to be hit hard again after the wiretapping BS.

    So my question is: Who is funding Daniels' lawyer? Who does he work for? Follow the paper trail.

    Anyone with an unbiased eye can see this is a soft coup against Trump. Is Justice not supposed to be blind?

    Not to mention what about the 2016 rhetoric? Remember when people flipped their leads when Trump said he may not accept the results? Or when Obama told Trump to "quit whining" and that the election can't be hacked nor rigged?

    Well, they are probably criminals, too. Can't Trump order his justice department to investigate this?

    Why isn't Mueller doing that already?
