    Aside from the fact a for-profit press needs big ratings to survive, Trump only states what's pathetically obvious. Hate it? Well, it's no less capitalism than any other form.

    Article has more, but Trump's asking Russia to hack (joke or not) seems strange since it's clear Russia did so months ago, without Trump's involvement.

    Also, the article implies there are absolutely no other reasons that Clinton might lose. Trump's spoken such issues many times, he also seems to be the type that won't mince words or hold back. If he says what I think he will during the debates, Clinton will not be able to recover.

    Trump may or may not be pro-Russian, but why would Russia give a whit when not many results would be in Russia's favor?

    Everyone loves to say Trump is a phony, a plant to help make a Clinton shoe-in victory easy - which I agree sounds like BS to begin with - but for all the questioning of why Trump cares about Russia, what about Hillary? Isn't she caring about Russia as well? (We know she hates Putin, and as much as we've seen artistic pictures of Putin and Trump kissing, that hardly tells a story (lucid or otherwise).)

    What next, why don't people just say Trump told Clinton to set up her own private server after giving all the internet connectivity info to Russia singlehandedly because he did a pinky-swear with her?! :rolleyes: Her personal email server of which has probably offline and powered down so nobody from Russia could be able to get into, not even Snowden...

    Lastly, here's some fun BS wrapped in a tinfoil hat:

    Okay, that article is from May and the alleged hacking took place in April...

    More ties to Russia? This looks interesting, but take the news agency with a big grain of salt...

    Rather than to help Trump, I think that Russia wants to cause trouble for anyone associated with the current administration :).

    Hope they leak his tax return.

    I am 90% convinced the main reason Trump hasn't released it is because it will show (1) Clinton made more money than him, (2) Clinton paid more in taxes than him, and/or (3) Trump is a free-loader that paid no taxes.
