Reports: Trump May Have Relied On Putin About Debunked Conspiracy | Deadline | MSNBC

60 Comments on "Reports: Trump May Have Relied On Putin About Debunked Conspiracy | Deadline | MSNBC"

  1. Trump, Maga and Putin: The new Axis of Evil.

    • @Biggus Dickus Mueller did say that meaning if he had a crime! He never said he had a crime to charge Trump with!

    • @L, No he did not say that he tossed it to Pelosi and she knew they had NOTHING!

    • Bud Fudlacker

      He couldn’t consider charging him because of the DOJ policy and for no other reason. But that’s okay. When he leaves office, he will lose the protection of the presidency and prosecutors will go after him. Life after the presidency won’t be kind to him.

    • You must change your name. It is too outrageously funny and detracts from your profound serious words.

  2. Trump is an easy mark for anyone with a functioning brain.

  3. Trump’s own expert in Eastern Europe said under oath that theyre repeating Russian propaganda. Trump’s had secret meetings and gave them classified intel. Trump is a Russian asset

  4. Our own president believes Putin over American intelligence agencies. How can people not see that EVERYTHING traitor Trump does benefits Russia?

    “Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.”

    Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
    “It is important that any effort to influence or effect the American public that is not in the public interest be killed by the light of pitiless publicity and analysis.”
    Edward Bernays, Propaganda

  6. there is zero doubt Putin is influencing Trump and the GOP party. It’s sick and the Trump enablers are traitors

  7. So if Trump is friends with Putin and Putin attacks our elections and Trump does nothing about it. How is Trump not a Traitor to our country? One would think that an attack on our sovereignty would classify a country as our enemy and Trump letting him get away with it is aiding that enemy.

    • ‘Giving Aid and Comfort’ to an enemy is specifically the Constitutional definition of treason, – punishable by death.

    • @ Bud Fudlacker you have to be pretty naive to think Putin didn’t know of and approve the cyber attack on our computers. Especially when our entire intelligence community says they did it.

    • When he gets out of office, and found out to be helping Putin, he should be tried as a traitor!

  8. vlad has owned skidmark for many many yrs. he does whatever his daddy wants…or family members will have unfortunate ” accidents”

  9. This gets worse and worse

    Trump, the GOP, and their worshippers are traitors. Meanwhile a Russian spy ship lurks offshore…. It should be sunk… and ANY aggression from Putin should cause a lethal response…

  11. A Narcissist, a Sociopath and a Sexual Predator walk into a bar… the barman says… “Good afternoon Mr President”.

  12. Trump is not a covert Russian agent, he’s an overt Russian agent, operating Against America in full view, and plain sight.

    • @C H None of what you list exists. The only actual article that the Fox Zombies are calling “election interference” is an op ed by a Ukrainian ambassador taking exception to Candidate Trump announcing he was willing to give the Crimea, (Ukrainian territory!) to his master Putin. The only other “source” is Shokin, the most corrupt, bribe ridden prosecutor in Europe. Who was fired only after Poroshenko was faced with the condemnation of Nato, the EU, several business organizations and his own Paliament!!! YES — Fully DISCREDITED and DEBUNKED. ты стоишь открытым товарищ

    • @bugged out That’s meaningless. Mueller never had any authority to exonerate anyone.

    • @The Ford Method Florida Immersion Bar Prep There was no crimes in the Mueller report! Guess he could not put them in there either?

    • @CShield Lol Yeah you are baby. And I love it.😘😘

    • Democrats hate bribery and extortion: Except when Biden uses a billion of Tax payers dollars to protect his person interest (Hunter) they turn their head

      Democrats say Trump asked a foreign country to help him in the election: If so then what do you call the DNC paying a foreign entity who used information from Russia as the sole source to investigate a political arrival (Trump) that was fake ?

      Democrats say Trump threatens our national security: Except they support open borders.

      Democrats swore a oath to uphold the constitution: But wouldn’t allow Trump to call his own witnesses and stacked the constitutional witness 3:1 in their favor.

      Democrats say they fight for our citizens: Yet our citizens get treated like 2nd citizens while undocumented immigrants get better treatment.

      Democrats say Trump tried to get dirt on Joe: I say why worry unless he actually has dirt to worry about like a corrupt company making his son rich .

      Democrats believe in the constitution: But try to change it all the time examples the popular and elector vote,2nd amendment

      Democrats say foreign aid being held up is Impeachable
      but it happens all the time .

    The man is a Russian tool wow just call it that, this is ridiculous.

    Nah, It’s the Money. No one loves the Russians. The Current administration LOVES their money tho. Leveraged and PAID. Key republicans are both.

  15. Since Trump is basically employed by Vladimir Putin himself, he has to obey everything he tells him.

  16. Finally, a real Christian has spoken out the truth and we hope that all evangelical Christians could be awakened! Trump is a fake Christian and his supporters are also fake Christians! We need to impeach and remove the Putin’s Puppet Operative in Chief!

  17. Trump has been compromised by Putin and Russia. The entire GOP knows this, and they want to keep Trump in power because they can use him as a puppet,and line their pockets while maintaining their power. If all REAL Americans don’t fight for America, don’t complain when our democracy fails. Russia, DPRK, China, and the GOP are playing Trump for their own gain. Trump is as serious threat to US national security.

  18. Putin said he didn’t meddle and I believe him—Dotard Trump

    Trump is a Russian Infiltrator and the United States is the trophy.

  20. They used to call Obama the Manchurian Candidate. Kinda scary, kinda funny.
